In today’s blog, we will be talking about dental implants and implant crowns. People commonly think of a dental implant as a screw or a post, but a more accurate term would be a root replacement. A dental implant is the tooth replacement option that replaces a missing tooth in the most natural way. Our Edmonton dental office Orchards Dental offers a full range of dental implant services including, placement of the implant, restoring the implant, design, and placement of the implant tooth or implant crown, implant retained dentures, implant overdentures, implant bridges, front teeth or anterior dental implants.
Two common questions about dental implants
1) How much do dental implants cost?
The cost of a dental implant varies widely from office to office. The price of a dental implant will also vary based on which tooth is being replaced and whether or not additional procedures such as bone grafting (to grow bone in the area) are required. At Orchards Dental, placement of the root replacement portion of the dental implant ranges from approximately $1500-2250, and placement of the dental implant crown ranges from approximately $1100-2000. If you are interested in a more precise estimate for the specific tooth or teeth that you are looking to replace, we would be happy to provide that. We offer complimentary dental implant consultations to assess your specific situation so that we are able to give you a better estimate based on your needs.
2) Does it hurt to get a dental implant? How much pain should I expect with a dental implant?
For placement of a single dental implant or a few dental implants, pain during and after surgery is usually minimal. Dental anesthesia during implant placement allows for the procedure itself to be painless. Very mild tenderness of the gums in the area can be expected for a few days after the procedure, but many people experience no tenderness or pain at all.
