WHAT IS DENTAL IMPLANT?
A dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.
How painful is a dental implant?
With numbed nerves, you can expect not to feel any pain during your dental implant procedure. You may feel pressure at times, but it should not cause you discomfort. For patients who have anxiety with dental procedures, oral sedation is available.
How much dental implant cost?
The cost for a dental implant to replace a single tooth is estimated to be in the range of $3,000 to $4,500, according to The New York Times. However, the key for you to get the lowest possible cost is to check with a credentialed dental implant expert.

Installing the implants takes two simple steps. During the first phase, the dentist makes an incision in the gums and secures the implant in the bone. As the gums around the titanium “root” begin to heal, the implant will become part of the patient’s bone structure.
After 3 to 6 months, the patient will return for a follow-up where several impressions will be made. Using these molds, a customized crown will be created. After checking for fit and color, the ceramic crown is secured to the implant, providing patients with an aesthetic and functional replacement.
