What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that is used to replace a missing natural tooth. The implant is permanent in nature and eventually integrates with the jaw bone. A crown or cap is placed on top of it to create a complete tooth structure to replace the natural one. The dental implant technology has proved to be immensely successful in the last two decades with a very high success rate.
Advantage of Dental Implants
Dental Implants are the most efficient solution for the replacement of one or more missing teeth. It looks and feels natural, and functions almost as good as a natural tooth. Most patients will eventually tend to forget that they are using a dental implant, and they will not feel self-conscious about it.

Cost of Dental Implant Treatment
The cost of implant treatment will vary, depending on the number of missing teeth that require implants. Also, the cost factor goes up if a particular case is more complicated and requires additional procedures to administer the implant successfully. For instance, in case of severe bone loss, bone grafting procedure may be necessary before an implant can be placed successfully. Therefore, the cost of each case will differ and the dentist can evaluate the condition, and advise the estimated costs to the patient beforehand. It must be noted that in case of multiple implants, the cost per implant may be lower compared to a single implant.
"When my daughter broke her tooth in a fall, our local dentist referred us to a dentist who could do the implant she required. The price was so high and we knew little of the procedure, so we decided to do a little research. We went to UCSF as part of the search for information. We discovered Dr. Lokhandwala from her internet site. After a phone call speaking directly with her, we realized she was among the most knowledgeable dentists around. The fee was less than all of the others."
