EON Clinics provides dental implants in Munster, Indiana and several other locations.

Dental implants are prosthetics designed to replace missing or damaged teeth. EON Clinics offers several types ranging from implants that replace a single tooth to “All-On-4” implants that replace an entire jaw of bad teeth.

Dental implants look like screws and are made of titanium, which will eventually fuse with the jawbone. The implant is an artificial tooth root. A connector called an abutment sits on top of the implant, and a natural-looking, custom-made crown is placed on the abutment.

Dental implant cost in Munster may seem high compared to other treatment options, but implants have advantages that more than compensate. For example, an implant restores both looks and function. In addition to looking like a natural tooth or group thereof, the implant restores the patient’s ability to chew. Since a dental implant is an artificial tooth root, it preserves the bone in the patient’s jaw and even stimulates the growth of new bone.

Dental implants also last the rest of the patient’s life; in fact, some implants have lasted for over 50 years! Other devices for replacing teeth, like dentures or bridges, have to be replaced every few years. Finally, installing an implant does not involve damaging healthy teeth. A dentist installing a bridge, for example, has to shave down neighboring teeth to make space for the bridge.

EON Clinics also offers patients a variety of ways to pay for the dental implant cost in Munster. Patients may pay through cash, check, credit card, or debit card. They may use any of several patient financing services. While dental insurance generally does not cover dental implants, it may cover parts of the procedure, like a tooth extraction or anesthesia.
