The cost of dental implants relies on many different factors including location, expertise of the dentist, quality of materials used, and more. It’s important to ask yourself if can afford NOT to have dental implants? This is because missing teeth or having loose-fitting teeth can cause your quality of life to be affected: inability to chew properly, unable to eat foods you enjoy, premature aging from facial collapse, etc.

Can Anyone Have Dental Implants?

How Long Will It Take?

The procedure is often broken into 2 or 3 separate appointments due to the nature of dental implants having to fuse with the jawbone after being surgically placed. Expect up to 6-7 months for the entire procedure (it takes up to 6 months in certain cases for the jawbone and implant to fuse).

Is the Dental Implants Procedure Painful?

No. The dental implant procedure is performed using anesthesia so that you do not feel pain throughout the entire duration of the procedure. Comfort is a very important aspect of our practice & we strive to make sure patients are comfortable throughout their appointments.

Does Insurance Cover Dental Implants?

If you have lost the tooth as a result of an accident involving trauma, then your entire implant my be covered by your insurance provider. However, most insurance providers will cover only a portion of the cost of dental implants in Chula Vista. We recommend reaching out to your insurance provider to discuss. However, if implants are not within your budget we have other alternatives to consider.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants are designed to last your entire lifetime once placed, provided they are taken care of just as any tooth would require for long-lasting, durable results.
