Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement option for people with missing, damaged, or unhealthy teeth. At Bryan Hill, DDS, we recommend dental implants as the best alternatives to dentures and dental bridges. Dental implants are suitable for adults of all ages, meaning unless your dentist says otherwise, everyone is a candidate for dental implants. However, to get an implant, you must have adequate bone support, healthy gums, neighboring solid teeth, and be committed to good oral hygiene and overall body health.
What is the Cost of Dental Implants?
People are always eager to know the cost of dental implants. The dental implant cost varies greatly depending on the dental implant materials used, the number of teeth being replaced - whether it is a single tooth implant or multiple tooth implant, and the dentist's experience. The dental implant procedure is complex, with several aspects to each treatment, meaning you must pay different amounts for every process. Some aspects that will include the total cost of your replacement teeth are a comprehensive dental exam, tooth extraction (if necessary), dental implant installation, abutment hardware installation, dental crown construction, and crown installation. The cost of each element is mainly based on the dental practice. Some dental facilities provide a free complimentary computed tomography (CT) scan as an incentive before the procedure starts. However, if you must pay, the cost of the 3D image ranges between $350 and $510. Dental implants are a long-term investment and are similarly priced. The primary reason for the lack of standard fees is that all treatment processes differ. In contrast to a single service, such as a filling, dental implant costs are based on the nature and extent of the work. Your total ultimate cost will be determined by certain factors, such as if you have a CT scan, need a bone graft or sinus lift, and the type of bone graft since their price also varies.
Dental Implant Procedure
The dental implant procedure is a complex surgical process involving placing a small titanium post into the jawbone to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or denture. Before the procedure, you must consult with us to determine if you are an ideal candidate for dental implants. During the consultation, we will carefully examine your mouth to check the health of your teeth and gums. We can also take x-rays, and review your dental history. We will also discuss the different types of dental implants available. We offer single tooth implants, multiple tooth implants, and implant supported dentures. Depending on your needs, we will help customize the best course of action for your specific case. Once you are deemed a good candidate for dental implants, we will create a treatment plan for you. The treatment plan will outline the number of implants needed and the ideal material. It will also include information on the estimated recovery time and any potential risks associated with the procedure.
