What is the cost of a dental implant for a Greenville, SC area patient?
The team at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry knows that the unexpected can lead to damage to the smile. Also, development of large cavities or periodontal disease can also impact the smile. When teeth are missing, it is important that patients work with a dental team that can provide a number of solutions. When faced with missing teeth, patients may benefit from several options including dentures, bridges, and dental implants.
The most popular option for many of our patients is dental implants. When patients are appropriate candidates for this restoration, they are often excited to find out that this is the “gold standard” in tooth replacement. Dental implants are available in our practice and are made of zirconia, a special ceramic. This ensures the restoration is biocompatible with the body, eliminating the need for metals so often used by other dental offices.
Dental implants are placed in the jawbone. The bone gives the implants strength and stability unlike any other repair. It also stimulates bone growth, ensuring patients enjoy healthy bone for many years to come. Dental implants are stand-alone repairs that do not affect the adjacent teeth like bridges can. They are also permanent unlike partial or full dentures.
Dental implants do have a higher cost than alternatives. However, they hold their value much better than bridges or dentures. The cost will vary, depending on the type of implant and the expected use. Some implants are used to replace a single tooth, while others are utilized for anchoring dental bridges or dentures. Drs. John Palmer and Daniel Knause not only restore implants but also place them, eliminating the need for a referral to a specialist.
