Dental Implant Cost
The surgical implantation of dental implants can be a costly process, but price varies dramatically based the work being done. The best way to get an idea of cost is to schedule a consultation. We will discuss and evaluate your needs including the number of implants and type of prosthetic needed. At University Periodontal Associates, our staff can provide you a detailed list of costs before the procedure is performed, including what your insurance company is willing to pay.
Dental implants generally cost in the thousands of dollars. However, this is not paid at one time, but spread over the entire process, which can take months to complete. Additionally, dental implants are a permanent solution; most patients never need them replaced, unlike other tooth replacement restorations. Above all, implants are the closest device to your natural tooth, meaning you can resume your regular diet without the fear of an appliance being loose or rocking around in your mouth, this level of comfort is invaluable.
Your Implant EvaluationYour implant evaluation begins with discussing your needs if you are missing one tooth, multiple teeth or all your teeth. We will then evaluate using digital x-rays your level of bone mass and tooth structure placement. We will assist you through the process, answering your questions as we go. Depending on how you look at it, dental implants may or may not cost less than other restorative work.
Many patients will require some preparatory work before surgery. Preparation may include:
Less Long-Term CostFor most patients, a dental implant solves the problem; this means that though there may be a more initial cost, there are less long-term costs. The life span of a dental implant is much longer than any other restoration. Unlike bridges and dentures, most patients will never need to replace a dental implant.
Ease of MindThe convenience of never thinking about it again. No glues, no feeling of looseness, no problems. Implants with dental crowns placed on top look and feel like your natural tooth. With being secured directly to your jawbone, you can feel comfortable in how it feels.
Resume Your Regular DietEat the foods you want. You never have to worry about if you can eat that cob of corn, Implants allow you to eat the foods you would have normally eaten with your natural teeth.
Implant OptionsDental implants come with a wide variety of variations; we can find the right one for you! There are implants that vary in width and length; there are implants that are used to work in conjunction with dental bridges, partial dentures and even implants that stabilize full dentures! The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is designed for the placement of between four and six longer implants to permanently stabilize a full denture. This design often eliminates the need for a bone graft, meaning patients can be done in one visit.
