How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
If you have lost a tooth or several teeth due to infection or trauma, chances are that you have considered receiving dental implants. Dental implants are among the most advanced dental treatments currently available, and they can help patients permanently transform the health and appearance of their smiles – for the better! One of the most common concerns that patients have, however, is the cost of dental implants. Below, is a breakdown of some of the factors that influence the cost of dental implants.
Calculating Dental Implants Cost
The cost of dental implants varies from patient to patient based on a number of factors, including the number of teeth being replaced, the location of the teeth being replaced and the type of dental implants a patient is receiving (for example traditional implants or all-on-four dental implants).
In addition, the complexity of the dental implant procedure will influence the cost. For example, some patients require bone grafting surgery prior to dental implant placement in order to provide a substantial foundation for the implant. Individuals who require this treatment, can expect to pay more for their implant procedure.
The placement of a single dental implant can range in price from $1000 to $3000, based on these factors.
During your initial consultation at Champagne Smiles, our dentists will discuss with you all of the details for your procedure as well outline a detailed treatment plan that factors in all of these costs.
Aren’t Dentures Cheaper?
While dentures carry a cheaper up-front cost when compared to dental implants, dentures can wind up costing a patient an equal amount of money or more overtime. Dental implants help to prevent resorption of the jaw bone. Without the protective effect of dental implants, dentures will become less stable as the jaw continues to melt away. After jaw bone loss has occurred, the procedures to replace it are far more extensive and expensive than if implants had been placed immediately following tooth extraction.
In addition, dental implants can also pay off in terms of quality of life. Dental implants alleviate many of the issues that patients typically experience with dentures, such as gum recession, sunken cheeks and difficulty speaking or chewing.
Does Insurance Cover Dental Implants?
While some insurance carries do cover dental implants, it varies on a case-by-case basis. Before opting for the dental implants procedure, it is important to check with your provider to see whether or not you will be covered. Our friendly staff can also help you get the information you need, ahead of the procedure.
