There are many health benefits to dental implants such as how they keep jaw bone density resilient and prevent surrounding teeth from shifting. However, many patients end up being more concerned about the final dental implant cost than anything else. Dr. Tom McCawley will always inform you of how much you will need to pay before proceeding, so you can make an informed decision.
Factors That Affect Cost
First, it is important to consider implants may not be the only procedure you need. After an X-ray, Dr. McCawley may discover your jaw bone is not strong enough to support the implant. You will require a bone graft before proceeding, which adds to the final price. Additional factors include:
- Number of Implants: The procedure will cost more if you require multiple implants instead of just one.
- Extraction: If the entire tooth is missing then our periodontist can begin the implant procedure right away. However, if any part of the tooth remains, then it will require removal first.
- Type of Implant: You can certainly acquire a single implant but some patients may benefit from All-on-4, which replaces an entire arch of teeth. Our office also provides TeethToday, which can benefit patients with limited bone tissue.
Dental implant coverage will vary by carrier. You should always contact your dental insurance provider to see if even some of the cost can be covered.
Implants as an Investment
Even if you have to pay for the cost of dental implants out of pocket, it is usually worth it in the long run. They will last for decades and they function similarly to your natural teeth. When you want to restore your smile, there is no better option.
