Factors Influencing Dental Implant Cost
The cost of dental implants treatment can be determined by factors such as the number of implants needed, necessary preliminary procedures, and the type of sedation used. While costs can fluctuate considerably, dental implant-supported crowns, which are used to replace one tooth, typically run between $1,000-$3,000. Drs. Craig Goldin, Marcy Goldin, and David Whalen at the Cosmetic Dentistry Institute in Troy, MI, are dedicated to delivering outstanding treatment outcomes while also keeping dental implant costs down. In addition, flexible financing is accepted through CareCredit® and LendingClub.
Dental implant cost is shaped by several factors which are unique to each patient.
Investing in Your Health & Confidence
The unique advantages of dental implants make the procedure well worth the cost for many patients suffering from tooth loss. Because the posts fuse with the jawbone, implants can provide a lifetime of stable support for crowns, bridges, and dentures with proper care. Dental implants allow denture patients, in particular, to eat, speak, and laugh with full confidence that their restoration will not slip out of place.
Cosmetic Dentistry Institute accepts flexible financing plans so patients can receive the high level of care they deserve.
Implant-supported restorations also preserve the jawbone and facial structure. Once tooth roots are missing, the jawbone starts to deteriorate. By essentially serving the function of tooth roots, dental implants can maintain a strong, healthy jawbone and in doing so, preserve a more youthful appearance. We offer a variety of types of dental implants, allowing us to meet your unique needs.
Determining Your Treatment Cost
Patients with complex oral health issues, such as extensive tooth decay and gum disease or a large number of missing teeth, can expect to pay more for their procedure than a patient with a single missing tooth. We can begin outlining your estimate during a consultation at our practice. Generally, determining factors include:
Number of Implants Placed
The number of implants you require is a significant factor that will influence the overall treatment cost. Although we use advanced techniques such as Teeth Tomorrow®, which help patients avoid a post for each missing tooth, a greater number of implants will still raise your cost.
Restoration & Abutment Types
The type and number of restorations being placed also greatly affect the price. Replacing a tooth with a single implant-supported dental crown will cost less than replacing several teeth with a bridge, or a full arch of teeth with a denture. Additionally, restorations fabricated from high-quality materials will cost more than lower-quality materials. Abutments (connector pieces between the implant post and the restoration) also range in price depending on materials and technology.
In order to receive dental implants, patients need to have enough jawbone mass to retain the posts. Patients who have had missing teeth for an extended period of time may require a bone graft or sinus lift to fortify the jawbone. In other cases, patients may first need to have damaged teeth extracted. These procedures will increase the total cost of your dental implant treatment.
Type of Sedation
Some patients are comfortable with local anesthetic whereas others prefer sedation, such as nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation. Alternatively, patients receiving several implants or who have complex cases may choose intravenous (IV) sedation. Nitrous oxide and oral medications are moderate in price, while IV sedation is relatively more expensive.
