High-Quality Restorations for Life
Perhaps one of the most discouraging effects of tooth loss is the consequential loss of smile and facial aesthetics. Many patients who visit us are oftentimes embarrassed or even depressed by how much their appearance has changed because of one or more missing teeth. Have you been considering replacing your missing teeth with dental implants, but are concerned they may not fit your budget? While it is true that dental implants cost more than other restorative options, such as dental bridges or dentures, their long-term health and aesthetic benefits far outweigh that of alternative low-cost restorations. Along with both placing and restoring dental implants in-office, we have the expertise and technology required to provide our patients with the most high-quality and aesthetic restorations possible. Dental implant cost is determined by multiple factors, depending on the needs of our patients.
What Affects Dental Implant Cost?
Dental implants provide the most ideal long-term replacement to missing teeth. Each of our cases presents unique situations, however, and there may be times when certain restorative procedures must be completed before dental implants can be placed. We are skilled in these procedures, such as bone grafting, which provides the healthiest foundation for single or multiple dental implants. Once treatment is complete, even if you only need to restore a single tooth, you will begin to see the benefits of dental implants—all of which will last a lifetime with proper at-home and professional oral care. For patients with multiple missing teeth, our full-arch solutions provide the most significant health and aesthetic improvements of any restorative option available!
A Treatment Plan to Fit Your Budget and Smile Goals
We make a personal commitment to provide only the most exceptional restorative care for our patients. This means that you will never undergo procedures that do not relate to the end goal of your treatment. When it comes to dental implant cost, we determine this after a comprehensive exam, which includes taking x-rays and a thorough evaluation of your mouth. As a multidisciplinary team, we work together to create a treatment plan that not only fits your budget and smile goals, but provides you with the most beneficial, healthy, and attractive results possible. Dental implant cost will be more than temporary restorative options, but the vast improvement to a patient’s quality of life long-term is one of the main reasons why so many of our patients turn to dental implants to restore their smiles! Will you be one of them?
How much do dental implants cost?
Please call to make an appointment to determine your treatment plan because there are several factors that influence the cost of a dental implant, including:
- The quality, amount, and location of bone.
- The number of teeth that need to be replaced and the type of artificial teeth that will be used.
- The type of implant(s) that will be appropriate.
- The number of implants needed to support these teeth.
What are dental implants?
Think of dental implants as artificial tooth roots. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns.
A connector, known as an abutment, is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns. The crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth.
Modern dental implants have been used successfully for over 40 years. They are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth, and even better, they allow these new teeth to feel, look and function naturally.
Can I replace all my teeth with dental implants?
Yes, when all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, there are three option:
- Bridges on implants, which is a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants.
- All-on-4 or All-on-5, hybrid, or fixed-detachable dentures, which is a bridge-type prosthesis that attaches to multiple implants.
- Removable implant denture, which is a denture that snaps down onto the implants and can be removed for daily cleansing. Typically, 2 or 3 implants to each arch are needed.
How many implants are needed for the whole mouth?
The number of implants that are needed to replace all teeth won’t be the same for everyone, but usually five dental implants in the upper jaw, and four to five implants in the lower jaw.
