See below for our full related cost table for related products & proceedures.

What Is A Dental Implant?

A dental implant replaces one or more missing teeth and consist of 2 parts

  1. The actual Dental implant that replaces the tooth root. After successful Dental implant placement, the new implant “root” becomes firmly “knitted” to the jaw bone. This part of the Dental Implant is made of either Titanium (the same thing hip replacements are made of) or Zirconium.

  2. The actual false tooth that is firmly attached to the Dental implant. This part of the dental implant is made from a combination of porcelain & metal/gold or just porcelain or just metal/gold

    2.a Sometimes if the Dental implant can actually be attached to the Dental Crown the result is an all in one unit.
