If you’re considering dental implants to replace your missing teeth, you’re most likely wondering how much they will cost. Dental implants are a permanent solution for the health, function, and beauty of your smile and should be considered a long-term investment. It’s important to know the factors that determine your dental implant cost so you can be prepared.
What Affects Dental Implant Cost?
- Number of missing teeth
- Location of missing teeth
- Tooth extractions or bone grafting
- Sedation dentistry
- Skill of implant dentist
- Types of materials used
Personalized Dental Implant Cost
Dental implants are not a one-size-fits-all solution. They require special planning and personalization to ensure they provide long-term benefits for your unique situation. A person who has recently lost one tooth will have a different dental implant cost than someone with no teeth who has been wearing dentures for years. However, many comprehensive implant centers that both place and restore dental implants can bundle fees by offering all phases of your treatment at one location.
When choosing an implant dentist for your treatment, consider their experience level and technology as well as the cost of your dental implants. Be wary of cheap options and “too good to be true” deals. Like most investments, you’ll be required to pay a little more upfront. Higher treatment costs generally reflect the quality and expertise of the dentist. You’ll in turn experience the lasting benefits of receiving a permanent tooth replacement from a skilled clinician.
