Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants provide significant, life-changing advantages for patients. The cost of dental implants depends on many factors, including the surgeon’s experience, the types of implants chosen, and possible preparatory procedures. Most often, the cost will primarily depend on the number of dental implants needed. In short, the cost can vary dramatically from patient to patient.
At Green Gregson Family Dentistry, our dentists provide an in-depth consultation and a personalized treatment plan with options. We understand that budgeting for dental work can be a difficult task. Our dental office offers a variety of payment options as well as flexible financing options through Care Credit.
Types of Dental Implants
There are numerous types of dental implants available today. In addition to the traditional titanium implants, there are now also mini dental implants and all-ceramic implants. While conventional, full-size implants are sufficient for most cases, some patients may require another option based on their individual needs.
For example, mini-implants are beneficial for patients who are deficient in bone. Mini implants typically cost less than traditional implants, but they are not as durable. Ceramic implants are generally the most expensive option. Furthermore, patients who have metal allergies may necessitate a ceramic implant rather than titanium.
These factors can be reflected in your total cost of treatment. Our dentists will provide you with all of the implant options available, and explain the features and benefits of each. This communication will help you determine which type of implant meets your goals.
Number of Implants
Many of our patients enjoy the benefits of sedation dentistry. At Green Gregson Family Dentistry, we offer both oral sedation and nitrous oxide for your comfort. Sedation can add a marginal fee to the cost of treatment. Most often, patients find sedation is well worth the comfort provided.
Oral Surgeon’s Experience
When undergoing any type of procedure, it is essential that you choose an experienced dentist you can trust. Our dentists are specially trained and certified in dental implant placement. Less experienced and non-certified practitioners often charge less for implants treatment. It is vital to consider, though, that selecting a knowledgeable provider, such as Dr. Green or Dr. Gregson, can reduce your chances for complications and avoid more extensive dental work in the future.
Schedule a Consultation
Dental implants are an investment in your oral and overall health. While the upfront cost may be higher than alternative teeth replacement options, dental implants can actually save you money in the long run. Because implants restore health as well as function and aesthetics, they are a superior and long-lasting solution. If you are considering dental implants, it is important to understand the cost factors of your treatment.
