Cost of Dental Implants- Cottonwood, AZ

If you are curious about the cost of dental implants, you’re not alone. That’s frequently one of the main questions patients have when we discuss treatment options. Truth is, everyone’s situation is different—so the cost of dental implants does vary.

Not that long ago, if you lost a tooth, your dentist would recommend grinding down the two neighboring teeth and using them as anchors for a bridge.

Nowadays, dentists offer an option that involves less damage to the adjacent teeth: a single-tooth implant.

Dental implants are similar to traditional crowns, in which top of a damaged tooth is capped. When the natural tooth has been lost, a dental implant which is an artificial tooth root typically made out of titanium is anchored in the bone where teeth are missing to anchor the crown.

Tooth implants are typically more expensive than more traditional option of a bridge.
