There are several reasons that people lose their teeth which includes injury from accidents and periodontal disease. Today's technology makes it possible to implant "teeth" in place of the lost tooth.
The implant is rooted in a "root" that is usually made of titanium and is placed surgically to support not just one tooth, but it can also be used to anchor several kinds of dental prostheses which would include dentures, crowns, bridges and other devices. Implants also have the benefits of restoring a person's looks and it certainly will not decay and become diseased, as natural teeth can.
As wonderful at implants are, they come with a high price attached to their implementation, and that alone can be a real deterrent to their implantation. However, Spirit offers dental insurance plans that help to ease the cost of these necessary procedures.
Implants that are "reasonable" or "affordable" can run between $1,000 to $3,000 apiece. However there are other procedures that are often necessary such as bone grafts, extractions and perhaps other forms of surgery. These costs can add an additional $5,000 to $10,000, making paying for these procedures out-of-pocket nearly impossible.
