Does full mouth implant treatment mean replacing all teeth with dental implants? How many implants can a person get? What's the price of full mouth implants? These are questions most patients are asking.
Dental implant is a process that begins by placing an artificial tooth root in the socket of the missing tooth, then topping it with an artificial tooth after the implant has integrated with the alveolar bone. Dental implants are independent of the adjacent teeth and very durable. One missing tooth can be easily replaced by one dental implant.
How many dental implants can a person get?
What if a full or half mouth of teeth is missing? What to do? Are they replaced on a one-to-one basis? Isn't there any limitation to the number of dental implants one can get?
Of course not. The number of dental implants one can get don’t exceed 28 even on a one-to-one basis, because most of us only have 28 natural teeth (excluding wisdom teeth which need no replacement).
Moreover, not everyone can bear the trauma of replacing all 28 teeth, let alone the cost which have scared off quite a number of people. So the placement of 28 implants is hardly seen in clinical surgery.
Normally, full mouth implant restoration involves 16 tooth implants, 8 in the upper jaw and 8 in the lower. The procedure can restore good masticatory function. More importantly, the newly-developed All-on-4 technique has lowered that quantity to 8, 4 each in the upper and lower jaws. This can also bring about relatively good results. But the precondition is that patients must meet the indications.
What's the cost of dental implants? Dental implants are charged per tooth, and the cost is determined by the quantity, the more the quantity, the higher the cost. Dental implant types are also relevant. For example, Korean or Chinese implants are cheaper than European and American ones. Currently the price of dental implant ranges from 10,000 – 30,000 Yuan. In addition, it can also be charged on the basis of half or full mouth, and the price per tooth is around 10,000 Yuan (the actual cost is subject to change depending on the actual condition).
Dental implant priced at around 10,000 Yuan is a good option for people who pursue high cost performance. A professional implant dentist can make it a great success with meticulous design. So no matter what brand of dental implant you choose, how many implants you are to get and what’s the cost, you can always rest assured with the help of an experienced dentist.
