Dental Implants Prices
A dental implant is a man-made tooth root. Dental implants are made in different shapes and sizes to correspond to the amount of available jawbone in each particular patient and each location within the same patients mouth. One size does not fit all everyplace.
A mini dental implant is a cylindrically shaped dental implant with a cross-sectional diameter of less than 3mm. They have been appproved for use in the United States of America for definitive replacement of teeth #’s 7, 10, 23, 24, 25 and 26. They also can be used quite successfully in other positions.
This is a picture of a MDL mini dental implant being inserted into the jawbone of a man in my Palm Harbor, Tampa area dentist office. The missing tooth is tooth # 25. The surgical placement and dental crown in this tooth # 25 position were completed in 2011. At the time of this posting, this gentleman has been comfortably functioning with this very health dental implant / dental crown for more than 6 months. With proper care, this comprehensive dental restoration may last a lifetime.

An Overdenture is a denture that goes “over” something. The something are typically dental implants or teeth. Dental Implants are used when there are no healthy teeth remaining and a full denture is not secure enough. Most commonly the teeth would be endodontically (root canal) treated first, but some overdentures go over “copings”. In this picture of a patient’s lower jaw four (4) “balls” can be seen protruding from what is left of four endodontically treated teeth. Preparation to arrive to this point included sedation dentistry (the patient was sedated) while all other lower teeth were extracted, root canal therapy on these four (4) teeth, fabriction and delivery of an immediate denture. After adequated healing the definitive overdenture seen in previous blog pictures was fabricated. All dentistry done in my Palm Harbor, Tampa FL area dentist office.

The words “fear,” “anxiety” and “pain” have long been associated with dentistry. In a recent survey of the most common fears of adults, fear of going to the dentist ranked second only to the fear of public speaking. Surgery prior to the introduction of anesthesia consisted almost exclusively of the amputation of limbs that had become infected and gangrenous. In the area of intravenous (IV) medications and outpatient general anesthesia, the dental profession led the way. With the introduction of IV barbituates in the late 1930s, Victor Goldman and Stanley Drummond-Jackson in England and Adrian Hubbell in the United States pioneered the technique of IV general anesthesia for ambulatory oral surgery patients. It was not until the 1970s that the medical profession, realizing the merits of short-stay surgery, began to use these same techniques. Sedation is commonly used in Implant Dentistry.

In previous blogs I have shown clinical cases and have given Dental Implants Prices but not all in one place. Let me try to simplify this. In this picture one can see the individual components if a person wants a single tooth repalaced with a Dental Implant. The three things shown are 1) the dental implant itself 2) a standard straight abutment 3) a crown for the Dental Implant. Now I will try to explain my dental implants prices (as of now December 2010). The cost for the dental implant and its placement is $1597. For a standard straight abutment I do not charge an additional fee, but custom abutments or precision attachments run between $283 and $768. The last and very important part is the tooth or crown. For most Dental Implants the price I charge for the crown is $1058, but may be higher in specific circumstances. For more information see www.DentalImplantsCost.us
A dental implant supported tooth was chosen as the best option in this situation of a missing lower right molar. Here, the answer to Dental Implants Prices IS straight foward. The cost of this dental implant was $1597. After healing, a standard straight abutment was placed at no addional charge to this patient. The dental implant crown can now be fabricated at the dental laboratory and delivered to my Tampa area dentist office.
After a dental implant has healed properly (osseointegrated), the definitive restoration, in this case a dental implant crown ($1058) was fabricated. Note this is a standard straight abutment on the implant. This shows how my dentist office in Palm Harbor FL, (Tampa Bay area) receives the crown and model work from the dental laboratory. I am trying to honestly answer questions about Dental Implants Prices. It is very rare that the only cost associated with “Dental Implants Prices” is the cost of the dental implant.
