It is hard to consider dental implants without recognizing the cost. However, while dental implants require a higher upfront investment than other tooth replacement options, they are more affordable and sustainable in the long run. Your dental implant investment offers big returns in terms of the stability, confidence and health of your future smile.
Dental implants are a permanent solution, which demands a more invasive procedure and an inevitably higher price tag. Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, a dental implant involves the surgical placement of a titanium screw that fuses to your jawbone over time to act as your artificial tooth root. A crown, denture or bridge can be attached to your dental implant abutment once it has healed. This allows for a remarkably secure and life-like tooth replacement.
There is not a one-size-fits all approach in implants dentistry. Therefore, the specific cost of dental implants may look different for each patient. Not only does each provider establish his or her own rate for dental implant surgery, but there are many other factors that can influence your overall expense.
The cost of your specific smile restoration using dental implants is based on a number of determining factors, including the following:
- location of the implant(s)
- the number of implants needed
- whether or not you need bone grafting prior to your implant procedure
- whether or not you need prior periodontal treatment
- additional x-rays needed
- the cost of the actual implant
- the type of implant restoration (crown or overdenture) that is used
- post-surgical care
