How Implants Work
This Advanced Treatment Has Shown Outstanding Success Rates
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer patients many advantages over traditional restorations, including:
Natural functionBy anchoring your restorations to your jaw, you can expect your new teeth to function just like natural teeth. As such, you do not need to worry about your restoration sliding out of place while speaking or eating.
Protection against jawbone atrophyWhen a tooth is no longer present to stimulate the jawbone, bone tissue will begin to recede. This can not only cause other teeth to become loose due to the lack of support, but can also affect your facial contours. Dental implants are the only treatment capable of stopping bone atrophy after tooth loss.
Improved self-confidenceReestablishing a healthy smile can significantly boost your self-confidence. In addition to allowing you to speak and eat confidently, dental implants can be paired with high-quality restorations that replace each missing tooth in an exceptionally realistic-looking way.

An Investment in Your Smile Can Provide a Wealth of Benefits
Because of their affordability, the most common options for replacing lost teeth are traditional bridges and dentures. This is especially true when you consider that each dental implant can add more than $2,000 to the cost of treatment.
However, dental implants provide a significant benefit not offered by traditional restorations: preventing jawbone atrophy. As bone loss progresses, traditional dentures require frequent relining and adjustments.The cost of these adjustments adds up over time. Implant-supported dentures help your jaw keep its shape and size, and require significantly fewer (if any) adjustments.
Treatment Cost and Financing
The starting cost for a single implant at our practice is $1,900. This does not include bone grafting, abutments, or your restoration. While this may seem like a significant investment, dental implants can prevent the need for more extensive and costly future treatments while providing unparalleled results.
While insurance typically does not cover dental implants, we do not want our patients to be discouraged from this highly effective treatment. As such, we offer an in-office discount plan as well as third-party financing. Our Dental Benefits Program is offered to patients without insurance and provides discounts on services. Patients can also apply for CareCredit®, which offers a variety of payment plans.
Treatment Spans Several Months
The Implant Process
Traditional dental implants require at least two surgeries separated by about three to six months of healing time.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 dental implants are another implant option at our Albuquerque, NM, dentistry practice that can replace a full arch of natural teeth and provide life-changing benefits using just four implants. In most cases, All-on-4 can support a denture immediately after placement surgery. During a consultation, Dr. Steven Ollason can determine if this solution is right for you.
