Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants will result in a natural chewing feeling and the beautiful appearance will be restored. In the place of the lost tooth, an artificial tooth root is placed in your jawbone with an artificial tooth/crown installed on the dental implant. There is no need to touch your other healthy teeth.
Single tooth dental implant treatment ranges from ¥ 200,000.- to ¥ 500,000.-, with an additional surgery cost of ¥100,000.- to ¥300,000.- if needed. If there is adequate width and height of the bone for the implant area, there will be no additional costs. Unfortunately, it is common for the bone to be missing or deficient in shape and size where the tooth has been extracted. Bone grafting may be necessary, which will increase the cost of treatment.
There are also some other complications and risks linked to dental implants such as:
Nerve injury: This causes pain, numbness or paresthesia in the surrounding tissues (e.g. teeth, gums, lips or chin)
Tissue necrosis: The cells in the flap of tissue around the implant may die (approximately 1 in 20 cases).
Gingival recession: The gingiva next to the dental implant may recede to expose the metal abutment that holds the prosthetic in place.
A dental abutment or an artificial tooth might get loose after installment.
As well as your natural tooth, without proper maintenance it is possible for the bone around the dental implant to lose bone mass. We highly recommend a typical maintenance visit scheduled every three months to ensure proper care.
Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums and/or bite. Our clinic utilizes metal free all ceramic and zirconia inlays, crowns, and bridges so your gums will not blacken. We also whiten your teeth to that of a natural color so that your teeth do not appear mismatched. A healthy appearance will allow for a confident and true smile. We want to give you more options so you can find one that suits you the best.
Price range 10,000 – 300,000 JPY (*It depends on a treatment)
Complications and Risks
The two side effects that occur most often with teeth whitening are a temporary increase in tooth sensitivity and mild irritation of the soft tissues of the mouth, particularly the gums.
【All ceramic crowns】
Ceramic crowns are not as strong and durable as metal inlays/crowns.
【All ceramic inlays】
We need to drill your tooth more so than with a metal inlay because of the proper thickness needed.
It cannot be used for your back teeth. It may come off depending on your bite problem.
【Metal ceramic crowns】
It is less aesthetically pleasing than all ceramic crowns because it has metal inside. After a certain period of time, aging or traumatic brushing will cause the metal skeleton to show and the gumline will turn slightly grey.
