Q: What Are Dental Implants And How Will They Benefit Me?

Are you missing a tooth or multiple teeth? Have you been looking for ways to replace them? 

If you answered yes to both questions, dental implants may be just what you’re looking for. Dental implants are a great alternative if you are unable or unwilling to wear dentures. 

Dental implants replace damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look just like real ones. It’s supported by a metal, screw-like tooth root.

The artificial root implant, which is made up of titanium metal, is inserted into the jawbone. An artificial replacement tooth is attached on top of this. The implant keeps the artificial tooth in place and provides support to the replacement tooth so you can go back to eating those crunchy and delicious treats again. 

How Much Are Dental Implants?

Implants require surgery, and that surgery is different for each person. This procedure varies depending on the type of implant, which tooth (or teeth), gum health and jawbone condition. Depending on the complexity of the patient’s case, a series of procedures may be needed that can take months to complete. 

For those reasons, there is no fixed cost for dental implants. The pricing is regulated by the Manitoba Dental Association and depends on your treatment plan.
