What is a dental implant?
A Dental Implant is the titanium cylinder that is put in either your upper or lower jaw in place of your missing tooth.
After placement, Dr. Frost will attach a porcelain or zirconium crown to the titanium cylinder, thereby creating a new tooth. If you have any questions about dental implants or their placement please contact our team.
What is the average cost of a dental implant?
The cost of a dental implant can vary based on your dental needs, however the average cost of dental implants can be broken down into three steps:
Step 1 - First, Dr. Frost will place the dental implant into either your upper or lower jaw. $1800
Step 2 - Secondly, a titanium abutment will be screwed directly into your implant by Dr. Frost. This abutment will become the foundation on which a crown will be placed. $500
Step 3 - Finally, your beautiful new tooth will be finished off with either a porcelain or zirconium crown cemented to your abutment. $1600

How long do dental implants last?
It is important to work with a dentist who has expertise and vast experience with dental implants. If placed and cared for correctly, they could last a lifetime. However, your home care matters. They must be cared for properly by eating the right foods, drinking plenty of water, and brushing and flossing at least twice a day. Certain medical conditions may also affect their longevity. Please contact our office if you have any questions about the longevity of dental implants.
