What do dental implants cost?
Losing a tooth can be devastating, not only because it affects the way you look, but also because it can lead to other physical problems that may affect your health and prevent you from smiling with confidence. Dental implants can be a long-term investment that can last decades with proper oral hygiene.
We understand that cost is a major consideration when undergoing any treatment, and we take great measures to accommodate the unique needs of all of our patients.The cost for dental implants in Mississauga can range from $1,500 – $4,000 per tooth on average. Because the dental implant procedure is tailored to the needs and goals of each patient, the total cost of treatment can vary and is based on many factors such as:
• The number of implants necessary
• The location of the implants
• The complexity of your case
• Whether any treatment is required to improve bone density
• The type of restorations and dental materials used
Every case is different so we encourage you to book a free no-obligation consultation with Dr. Ameen to determine what treatment options are available for your unique situation.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. They become permanent, “perfect” teeth as they are custom made for your unique smile. Implants provide a firm, perfectly sized and shaped tooth (or teeth), without any movement. You can feel good about your perfectly aligned smile.
Removable dentures can often cause discomfort, whereas implants are “woven” into your own jawbone and are much more comfortable. There is no need to ever remove your teeth. Once the dental implants are in place, a crown, bridge, or dentures can be permanently secured to the implant. Chewing food is easy and painless, just as with a person’s natural teeth.
Improved Bone Strength
When teeth are lost, the bone that supports those teeth can begin to atrophy and weaken over time. If left unchecked, this processed (called resorption) can cause the jawbone to become unstable and can lead to further tooth loss. Dental Implants stimulate new bone growth around the implant, strengthening the bone structure.
