What is the Cost of Dental Implants?
The cost of dental implants is determined by several factors such as the number of implants needed, the type of materials used, and any preliminary treatments that must be completed prior to your surgery. A few other factors that should be taken into consideration include the geographic location and the qualifications of your dental professional. Keep in mind that, like many things, the cheapest option is not always the best.
The average cost of dental implants ranges from $1,900 to $3,000 per implant, plus another $500 to $3,000 for the abutment and crown, which varies in price depending on the quality of materials used. The type of crown used along with your dental implant depends on a number of factors, including the location and visibility of the tooth replaced, the age of the patient, or whether or not the crown is a temporary or permanent restoration.
Other procedures, such as bone or tissue grafting, sinus elevation, tooth extraction, or extensive imaging and modeling may add to your total bill, depending on the number and type of additional treatments required. If any of these treatments are needed, our dental professionals will discuss all treatment and payment options with you in advance so you know exactly what to expect.
The Value in Dental Implants
Compared to other teeth replacement solutions, such as dentures, the initial cost of dental implants is higher; however, the lifespan and convenience you get out of your dental implants is much greater. Unlike dentures, which require special maintenance and daily care and ongoing costs, dental implants can be treated just like natural teeth and only require twice daily brushing and flossing and regular visits to your dentist for exams and teeth cleanings. Dentures, on the other hand, require special adhesives, cleaning solutions and ongoing visits to the dentist for bite adjustments. Additionally, dentures can weigh heavily on your teeth and gums, actually accelerating bone and gum tissue deterioration, while dental implants actually stimulate and strengthen the bone and gum tissue, reversing the effects of further tooth decay or the advancement of gum disease.
When seeking out solutions to replace a missing, damaged or decaying tooth, consider the value-added benefits you will receive, including convenience, longevity and satisfaction in your smile.
We also accept many forms of payment, including financing options and dental insurance, to help make the choice even simpler. If you are interested in getting dental implants, but are worried about the cost, come in for a no-obligation consultation to learn what options are available to you.
