Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to support a restoration for a missing tooth or teeth, helping to stop or prevent jaw bone loss.
Dental implants last an average of 25 years. There are many reasons implants may last less than or longer than this average lifespan. People with good oral hygiene will have their implants last longer.
Dental implant recovery depends on a number of factors, one of which includes the various procedures required to complete your treatment. However, it is generally recognized that once an implant has been placed, maintaining diligent oral hygiene habits helps ensure proper integration with bone structure. Failure to floss and brush can contribute to failure of the treatment. Infection can occur if the implant and surrounding areas are not cleaned properly. Smoking also is attributed to high failure rates and should be avoided following implant procedures.
The average cost of dental implants is $3,500 to $5,000. It includes the post, abutment, and the crown placement. Bone grafting, tooth extraction, sinus augmentation or sinus lift are at additional cost.
