Dental Implants in Portland
Modern dentistry is not just oral care, it influences and impacts many aspects of health. Now people live longer than ever before and mindfulness about health which helps keep your teeth healthy. But sometimes even regular brushing, flossing and checkups can’t prevent teeth from decay. Teeth aren’t purposed for a long life and consumption of modern sugar filled food. Still, people want to maintain a beautiful smile. That’s why dental implants are a perfect option for restoring not only healthy-looking smile but health aspects too.
Dental implants replace a lost tooth. Sometimes patients need dental implants to replace more than a single tooth, multiple teeth or a full upper or lower set of teeth.
If you need to restore a full arch, you may be a perfect candidate for the all-on-four treatment. This is less invasive and quicker than replacement every single tooth technology. This technology is called “all-on-four implants” and “multiple implants.”
Dr. Khlevnoy has over a 15 years experience of using implants to treat the lost of natural teeth.
Dental implants have gradually became the preferred choice for tooth replacement, the materials which we use in Powell Family Dental Care are the best quality and highest standards. Powell Family Dental in SE Portland is fully equipped with an onsite lab, to restore and create beautiful smiles in a perfect way for our patients. Let us tell you more about implants.
What exactly it is a dental implant
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots with a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth. The “root” of an implant is usually made of titanium: the same material used in hips and knees replacement. Titanium is well-suited to pairing with human bone. In comparison to dentures, bridges and crowns, dental implants are more effective long-term solution. After installment, dental implants fit, feel and function like natural teeth.
Dental implants typically have three parts:
- The implant: A screw that serves as a root for your new teeth. This is what permanently attaches to your jaw.
- The abutment: A permanent, but removable by your doctor, connector that supports and holds a tooth or set of teeth.
- The crown (or prosthetic tooth): This is the part of the tooth that you can see. Mostly made of Zirconium or porcelain for durability and good looks.
What makes dental implants feel completely comfortable and secure? Powell Family Dental doctors use a medical-grade titanium implant fixture that, over time, actually fuses to the living bone cells of the jaw. This union forms a strong and durable anchor for a new tooth or multiple teeth. No slippage of the tooth or other movement occur. Dental implants are like your natural teeth, you won’t need to change your eating or smiling habits. You will free confident about your smile.
The Average Cost of Dental Implants
The average cost of dental implants isn’t what it would cost for any patient individually. It’s like discussing average seasonal temperature of any area…
Individual things that determine what every patient will end up paying, so if you’re considering to have dental implants placed, the best way to figure it out is to see a dentist. We invite you to Powell Family Dental in SE Portland for a consultation and an estimate of the best solution for you.
Price of dental implants varies with materials and procedures, so you have got different options. According to DentalImplantCostGuide.com, the average completed dental implant in the US, costs about $4250 for both the abutment and jaw implant. But the cost of an implant can range anywhere from $3000 to $6000 depending on your case. We accept most dental insurance and our financial policy is very convenient for our patients.
Looking at the final price and splitting it into its various parts, you’ll find that:
- The initial surgery for placing the implant screw into the jaw will cost between $1650 and $3000.
- The abutment used for mounting the crown costs between $300 to $500
- The crown (which is the part of the implant that looks like a tooth) could end up costing anywhere between $1000 to $3000.
Dental implants failure
An ideal candidate for implants is a non-smoker who has good oral health, including a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw, and healthy gums with no sign of gum disease. In any case you will need a consultation with Powell Family Dental doctor.
