Dental implants have been steadily rising as a popular alternative to dentures or bridges. With a more comfortable fit, zero messy adhesives, no extra maintenance, and an incredibly natural look, the benefits of this innovative tooth replacement procedure are numerous. However, patients are sometimes bewildered as to why dental implants can be a more expensive option for replacing missing teeth compared to more traditional methods.
There are a number of variables that go into the price of dental implants, so the actual cost of the procedure can vary greatly from patient to patient depending upon their individual needs. Factors that contribute to the overall cost of dental implants include:
- Number of teeth replaced
- Complexity of tooth placement
- Implant material
- Lab costs
- Dentist’s fee
To help you cover the cost of this procedure, we have staff on hand to assist you with navigating your dental insurance policy to see if coverage is offered. We also work with reputable healthcare financing companies that can provide qualified applicants with customized options to make dental implants procedures more financially convenient.
When selecting a dentist for your dental implant procedure, we caution you against simply choosing the cheapest option. Oftentimes, a dentist with little experience may cost less up front, but might lack the skill or knowledge to maximize the aesthetic outcome and reduce the chances of problems down the road. A dentist with a history of success and specialized training might charge a little more, but may be better equipped to provide you with superior results right from the start. Take your dental health into your own hands, and be sure to research the credentials of your dentist before making your final decision.
