Replace One, Multiple or a Full Arch of Missing Teeth
With nearly 180 million people in the United States missing at least one tooth, dental implants have become the gold standard in tooth replacement. This modern and simple solution replaces missing teeth with a titanium post that replicates the function of a natural tooth. This means that when you choose dental implants to replace one tooth, or even a full arch of teeth, you are investing in a smile-saving solution that can last a lifetime.

Dental Implants Help Prevent and Reverse Bone Loss
Because the implant posts are implanted directly into the jaw bone, they provides the same stimulation as your natural teeth. This helps prevent, and even reverse, bone loss. Bone loss can lead to shifting teeth, tooth loss and an aging smile, but dental implants are designed to prevent these and further complications down the road by providing the stabilization your smile needs. Dr. Dale Spencer places implants in-house and uses computerized surgical guides to precisely guide implants into the most ideal position in the jaw. This yields higher overall success rates and minimal downtime for patients.
Factors Contributing to Overall Dental Implant Cost
Dental implants are designed to be a permanent smile solution that will last a lifetime with proper care. However, precise placement from an experienced dental professional, like Dr. Spencer, is the key to long lasting implants. Dr. Spencer will evaluate your individual needs during a one-on-one consultation to determine the cost of your investment. This determination will be based on a number of factors:
- The number of teeth being replaced
- If extractions are needed
- Whether you need a bone graft or sinus lift procedure
- The severity of your case
