Several Different Factors Affect the Cost of Dental Implants

Dental implants are a tooth replacement option that are designed to provide a strong base for a removable or a permanent tooth. This tooth replacement option is often beneficial because dental implants are durable and can be made to match the look and color of your existing teeth.
Important Factors
Those who are interested in dental implants should keep in mind that dental implant cost is usually affected by several different factors. These include some of the following:

* The type of implant that will be used during the procedure
* How many implants will be inserted into the mouth
* Which teeth in the mouth are going to be replaced
* Whether or not a decaying tooth needs to be removed from the mouth

In some situations, dental insurance will cover all or a portion of the cost of a dental implant. This makes dental implants in Ormond Beach, FL a cost-effective option for many people.

Determining Candidacy
Whether or not a patient is a good candidate for dental implants is also impacted by a number of different factors. For instance, people who smoke, children whose jawbones are still growing, and pregnant women are often not eligible to have implants put in their mouth. People who constantly grind or clench their teeth in their sleep or while they are awake may not be able to have implants put in their mouth.

Additionally, those who suffer from a systemic disease or a chronic illness may not be a good candidate for dental implants. For example, a person with hemophilia, a significant immune system deficiency, or a person with diabetes may be ineligible for this procedure. However, in these situations, whether or not a person can benefit from this dental procedure usually depends on how severe the condition is.
