Dental Implant Costs

Who We Are And What We Do

When our patients come to us about getting implants

Dental implant costs are not clear-cut as many would like to believe.

While there are fixed prices associated with the implants themselves, a quote also must take other factors into consideration.

There is no “standard” case when it comes to tooth implants, so let’s take a look at some of the costs associated with the treatment and what you could expect to pay.

What You Could Expect to Pay.

The Number of Implants

It goes without saying that the number of implants a patient requires will increase a treatment quote, but many people are under the impression that they need one implant for each tooth they’re replacing.

This isn’t the case at all! In fact, as few as four dental implants can replace the functionality of 12 teeth, which can drastically reduce costs right from the get-go.

Dental Work

It’s not unusual for people to require some form of treatment before actually getting to the implant itself.

We always recommend first considering other alternative procedures such as a root canal before a tooth extraction, which can save an otherwise healthy tooth that requires some minor treatment.

It will also drastically reduce the cost of treatment with a root canal treatment followed by Porcelain Crown.

Dental Implant Components

A tooth implant is made up of two parts: an anchor and the crown cap.

Both are necessary as the anchor point, a titanium fixture, is inserted into the jawbone to provide structural support for the porcelain crown.

Both are costly items and will appear itemized within our quotes for you.

Case Complexity

Each treatment case is different. While you will have the benefit of our years of experience in the field, any additional work that we need to do on your behalf could end up becoming costly.

One of the costliest differences between cases is the thickness of a client’s jawbone; For those with fairly petite or weak jaw structures, an anchor will not be securely rooted in the jawbone and provide a very poor end result.

Additional procedures will have to take place in order to ensure the implant remains functionally secure, which could include bone grafting.
