Dental Implants Procedures in One Hour - How Much Do They Cost and How Long Do They Take - Permanent Solution For Lost Teeth Dentures and Bridges

Dental Implants Procedures in One Hour - How Much Do They Cost and How Long Do They Take - Permanent Solution For Lost Teeth Dentures and Bridges

Dental Implant

Dental implants may be a better alternative for denture wearers. The problem is that implants take a very long time to complete and can be very expensive.  Since most insurance plans do not cover the expense, most individuals in the past have turned to dentures and bridges to replace lost teeth. 

Implants start at around $500 and can go up to $6,000 per tooth.  Most implants will cost between $1,200 and $2,000.  There are reasons why the cost could go up, so you will want to choose a dentist familiar with many restorative options.

Usually, anyone that can undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for an implant.  Patients will need healthy gums and enough bone to hold the abutment that attaches to the crown.  Patients with diabetes, heart disease or other chronic disorders need to be evaluated on an individual basis.    

 

There are several types of dental implants and some procedures can take up to nine months with two surgeries.  Recent advances have made the process much quicker.  According to Bethesda, Md Dentist, Abraham Ingber, DDS, he can do an implant in one hour. 

He saves time by using the new iCAT 3-D imaging scanner.  Other dentists may need to cut away gum tissue to see where to place the implant.  Using these images Ingber creates a replica of a person’s mouth.

 

The Ivanhoe website reports that Ingber can start at 3PM and finish the procedure by 3:40 PM.  The procedure entails less pain than some other procedures that require cutting.  The doctor uses what he calls a “little punch in the soft tissue”. 

According to Ingber, his implants cost about the same as others.  The new procedure is not available nationwide yet, but it will be.  This is good news for the estimated 22 million Americans that still wear dentures, or have no teeth at all.
