Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. While they are a cost-effective option due to their longevity (they can last a lifetime with proper care), they are an investment in your dental health. The team at New Image Dental wants our patients to understand the benefits of dental implants and what factors contribute to their overall cost:
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
Because every dental implant treatment is completely personalized and unique, there is no single, correct answer to this question. The cost of an implant at New Image Dental can vary depending on your oral health, the location of your tooth, and other such details.
However, before we get started on your treatment, we will give you an accurate estimate of your total cost and provide you with resources for payment and financing.
5 Factors That Affect The Cost Of Your Dental Implant
What are the most common factors that affect the cost of dental implants? Here’s a quick breakdown:
- Number of teeth being replaced – The more teeth that you need to replace, the higher the cost of your implant treatment. If you need more than one or two of your teeth replaced, we will offer honest advice and go over you all of your restorative options, including dental bridges and dentures.
- Additional preparation surgeries – If you require a tooth extraction, or your bone must be strengthened with a graft or sinus lift before your procedure, this will increase the cost of your overall treatment.
- Tooth location – The cost of treatment often depends on where your missing tooth is located. It’s usually more difficult to replace a front tooth, compared to an anterior tooth or molar. However, this depends on your oral health, the shape of your jaw, and other such factors.
- Your overall oral health – If your mouth is not healthy, and you suffer from periodontal (gum) disease, tooth decay, or other oral health issues, these must be resolved before an implant can be placed, increasing the overall cost of your procedure.
