Dental implants are medical devices surgically implanted into the jaw to restore a person’s ability to chew or their appearance. They provide support for artificial (fake) teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.
In different clinics, the procedure may cost differently. What makes up the price for dental implantation “turnkey” in Moldova?
Dental implant surgery
Because dental implants require one or more surgical procedures, you must have a thorough evaluation to prepare for the process, including a:
- Comprehensive dental exam.
- Review of your medical history. If you have certain heart conditions or orthopedic implants, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics before surgery to help prevent infection.
- Treatment plan. Tailored to your situation, this plan takes into account factors such as how many teeth you need replaced and the condition of your jawbone and remaining teeth.
- To control pain, anesthesia options during surgery include local anesthesia, sedation or general anesthesia. Talk to your dental specialist about which option is best for you. Your dental care team will instruct you about eating and drinking before surgery, depending on what type of anesthesia you have. If you’re having sedation or general anesthesia, plan to have someone take you home after surgery and expect to rest for the remainder of the day.
The cost of each stage is included in the final cost.
Dental implant material
An important role in the final price of implantation is played by the material from which the implant crown is made. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are inexpensive but not suitable for front teeth, while zirconia crowns are good for any part of the dentition, but are expensive. It is worth remembering that implants with the same crown materials can cost differently depending on the country of manufacture and manufacturing technology. At a consultation with an implantologist, you can learn more about each brand of implant and choose the most suitable option.
