Dental Implants Cost
1. The manufacturing or make of implants
If the implants are manufactured by internationally renowned companies from GERMANY, U.S or SWISS, they cost more. That is simply because these implants adhere to the international safety standards and are approved by CE and FDI. On the other hand if the implants are manufactured in INDIA they cost lesser. The patient can finally take a call on which make of implants to be used. Remember that the implants are going to be placed in your jaw bone and have to stay there for a life time. So choosing the right make of implant contributes to the success of the procedure.
2. The expertise of the implant surgeon
Implant placement is a very sensitive procedure which requires careful diagnosis, accurate treatment planning and precise execution of the surgical and prosthetic phases. Implant surgeon who has undergone extensive training and has enough experience in handling difficult cases is required to make the entire procedure safe, risk free and successful for the patient.
3. Infrastructure of the surgery/clinic
Implant surgical procedure requires state of the art facility and advanced equipment to make the entire procedure safe and comfortable for the patient. It is not a routine dental procedure like filling or cleaning. Implant procedure requires a complete STERILE ATMOSPHERE with proper sterile draping of the patient and adherence to strict asepsis during the procedure.

Types of Dental Implants
Single Tooth Implant
Single tooth Implant is a procedure that helps surgically place, a missing tooth in the jawbone. The integrated implant acts as a new root and a crown (cap) that looks like a natural tooth is attached to the implant to fill in the missing tooth.
Implant Supported Bridges
An implant-supported bridge is similar to a regular dental bridge, but it is supported by implants. In this procedure, one implant is integrated in the jawbone for the missing teeth. Then the crowns are connected to each other to form one piece
Implant Supported Dentures
An implant supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants for stability.
Full Mouth Rehabilitation Implants

Dental implants are the latest and best way to replace lost teeth. An implant is a small Titanium screw that is inserted into the bone. After a time of healing, the screw integrates with the surrounding bone. It begins to function like the roots of natural teeth. It provides good support over which artificial teeth resembling natural tooth can be fixed. The crown and the implant then look and function like a natural tooth.
The advantages of an implant are no teeth on either side have to be prepared for crowns, so there is no grinding on "good teeth" - you just fix the missing tooth. Any number of teeth can be replaced as long as the patient's health is good and there is healthy and adequate bone to support the implant.
Dental implants have given countless patients many amazing benefits! You can smile again, your appearance improves, with a confidence that the replacement teeth won’t move or loosen self-esteem greatly increases. Implants allow you to eat better, enjoy more foods giving you better nutrition. Speech also becomes more comfortable and convenient.
The implant screws are made up of Titanium metal which is extremely safe and stable. It bonds very well with bone and does not cause any allergic reactions.
Dental implants have a strong advantage of preserving the jawbone. Sometimes dentists don't explain the negative long-term consequences of missing teeth, which are that your jaw gradually shrinks until you can't wear any removable appliance. So if you want to still be able to eat when you're 80, you may want to consider investing in dental implants to replace those missing teeth.
