How much do DENTAL IMPLANTS cost?
Implants are truly amazing and without them, dentistry today just wouldn’t be the same. First ask yourself: What is a new, brand new tooth with root and crown worth to you? Lets put this inbetter context:
To restore a broken down tooth with ahealthy root in RSA could costs +- R3500(crown). To restore a broken down tooth with an infected root that requires root treatmentand crowning,could cost up to +- R7000.
The lifespan of these teethdepends on future decay and infection. If any of these teeth develop tooth decay again, the crown or root treatment has to be redone.
Sometimes repairing a tooth with root treatment or a crown is simply not possible as there are limitations to how much tooth structure is necessary to allow for a successful crown or root treatment.
Now, lets rather remove the whole tooth and give you a new one that will never decay, almost guaranteed a lifetime. What is this worth to you??
You starting to get the idea. Also remember that the material are coming from a highly specialized company and most of the components for implants have to be imported.The cost fora simple implant (with the crown), generally speaking will be +_R12 000 – R14 000 without complications.
If this sounds likea lot of money to you for a new tooth, think aboutthe benefits comparing to leaving a gap without a tooth.
