Is dental implant treatment expensive?

Dental implant treatment is sophisticated and demands a very complex armamentarium. More than one experienced professional (specialist) is required. The components used have to be very precise, and precious metal alloys (gold, silver, palladium) have to be used in the prosthetic phase. The implants and the prosthetic components have to be from a recognized brand. All of this makes dental implant treatment more expensive than tooth supported treatment, at first. But over time, since implant treatments last longer, require less maintenance and lead to less additional procedures, like the redoing of tooth-supported bridges or dentures (which sometimes implies root canals, extraction of supporting teeth, longer bridges, etc.); implant treatment becomes actually less expensive, and will prevent the loss of more natural teeth.
