Surely in our daily lives, we know of someone who has dental implants or has to have them due to a broken tooth or similar, but do we really know how much an implant costs? This is a very frequent question when we go to the dentist. Another question, as common as it may seem, is: What is a dental implant?
Next we will talk about what dental implants are, their different types depending on the needs of each patient and the prices that can vary.
What is a dental implant?
It could be called an artificial root, which is composed of titanium and which is totally designed for a perfect anchorage to the maxillary bone. It could be called a fixed dental prosthesis.
It is considered suitable for the placement of a dental implant from the age of 18, when all the teeth have settled. It should be taken into account if the patient is taking any type of medication or is undergoing any type of treatment at the time of implant placement.
Parts of a dental implant:
In general terms, it could be said that dental implants have 3 parts that are separated into:
- The dental implant: which is the bone itself and the one that is placed in the maxillary bone.
- The abutment: it is the piece that connects the implant with the crown.
- The crown: it is the imitation of the tooth, it could be said that it is the most esthetic and visible part of the dental implant.
Advantages of dental implants:
Dental implants, have great advantages such as:
- It is a permanent and long-lasting solution.
- It is not uncomfortable.
- They look like natural teeth.
- It hardly requires treatment and aftercare.
- It does not affect the other teeth that are in good condition, but rather the other way around. It helps to have a better placement and positioning.
Once we have learned the basic information about dental implants, let’s talk about the different prices of this type of treatment.
Dental implants prices:

Experience is a degree and the professional who treats you will have a fee according to his position and reputation. Implantologists usually have great experience so although it will be a little more expensive to go to a reputable professional, you will also be assured of a perfect result.
