Dental implants in Van Nuys have become a desirable method for replacing one tooth or a bridge. If you have lost a tooth or teeth due to an accident, periodontal disease, an injury or any other reason, then one of our amazing dentists at Hamlin will let you know what kind of options you have to replace it.
There are two types of dental implants: those used inside the bone (endosteal) and those used on the exterior of the bone (subperiosteal). Endosteal is the most commonly used. The various types include screws, cylinders or blades surgically placed into the jawbone. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.
Subperiosteal implants are placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework’s posts protruding through the gum to hold the prosthesis. These types of implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.
Of course, the cost of dental implants depends on a number of factors including the type of implant and procedure, how many, and which teeth you need replaced, how many implants are required to support these teeth, and how much insurance coverage you have, if any. Once you get an examination and talk with our Hamlin Dental Group dentist in Van Nuys, they will be able to provide you with a price estimate. We will be able to give you an idea of the cost of dental implants you are looking at after a preliminary examination.
While you are being examined for dental implants, our dentists at Hamlin Dental Group may also discuss fitting you for one or many dental crowns in Los Angeles. The crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles the dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth.
