Dental implants are the most natural-looking and natural-functioning replacement for a missing tooth. Unlike dentures, implants don’t slip or click on daily activities like laughing, talking, or eating.
When compared to the cost of dentures or bridges, you might not see the big difference you expect. Dr. Gill performs the entire dental implant procedure here in our Elk Grove dental office, including any additional necessary treatments such as bone grafting or sinus lifts that make dental implants possible for patients with bone loss.
Implants help in maintaining healthy jawbone, hence keeping the facial structure intact. They also hold your healthy teeth in place by preventing the shifting and tilting that are common when you leave a gap in your smile.
Many more insurance companies are recognizing the long-term benefits of dental implants, and while it is unlikely they will completely cover the dental implant procedure, you may receive some benefits when choosing this tooth-replacement option.
We also offer patient financing to help spread the costs of dental implant treatment over time. We will help you find a solution to achieve the healthy, attractive smile you want – even when facing tooth loss.
