A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. An implant has 2 parts: a metal anchor and a false tooth. A dental implant looks and feels like a natural tooth.
What Do Implants Cost?
The cost of dental implants can vary based on many factors. Each patient is an individual case and may be quite routine or perhaps more complicated based on the current condition of the mouth. That's why D&D Dental offers FREE Consultations where you can come in for a No-Obligation consult to learn exactly what your case entails and all of the options you have and make an educated decision about your oral health care.

Types of Dental Implants
Endosteal (in the bone):
This is the most commonly used type of implant.
The various types include screws, cylinders or blades surgically placed into the jawbone.
Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.
Subperiosteal (on the bone):
These are placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework's posts protruding through the gum to hold the prosthesis.
These types of implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.
