Missing and damaged teeth are a common problem for many people and dental implants offer a permanent solution

Our dental implant prices

The fee for tooth replacement with dental implants in 17 Dental will depend on several factors, including the number of teeth being replaced and the number of implants required to support your replacement teeth.

It is important for you to know that you do not necessarily need an implant for each missing root. Some additional procedures may be required prior to the placement of your dental implants to ensure the long-term health of your dental implants.

To obtain a specific fee estimate, it is necessary for our specialist dentist to examine your mouth. After a diagnostic examination, your dentist will recommend the treatment that is best for you and what your investment would be for the procedure.

What is an implant?

A dental implant is a small man-made titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to bond with the bone and serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth.

Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Implant-supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are a proven restorative option with a long clinical history.

Dental implants preserve the integrity of the facial structure and reduce the inconvenience associated with tooth loss.
