The pricing of your dental implant posts is the first factor that impacts the cost of your dental implant tooth replacement plan. Each implant post is custom crafted from high quality materials, usually titanium or zirconia. However, these customized restorations do come at a premium, so the bulk of the overall cost of dental treatment is wrapped up in the expense of crafting these implant posts. In addition to the crafting of the custom dental implant posts, the cost of surgical implant placement can also be high. Before we begin your treatment, we’ll review your dental implant options and partner with you to find a solution that meets your needs and fits your budget.
In addition to the creation and placement of dental implant posts, there are several other phases of dental implant tooth replacement that will also impact the cost of your treatment. Before the implant posts are placed, we may perform one or more preparatory procedures like tooth extractions or tissue grafts. After your implant placement procedures, we’ll still need to attach the abutments that affix the replacement teeth to the implant posts. Finally, we’ll design and attach the replacement dental crown, bridge, partial, or full denture.
While this complex tooth replacement process does come with a hefty price tag, many patients find that the benefits are worth the added investment. Some of the many advantages of replacing missing teeth with dental implants include:
Some dental insurance policies are now providing coverage for dental implants, but the vast majority of benefit plans still don’t provide coverage for these services. However, other aspects of your treatment will be covered, including replacement teeth and preparatory treatments. Our team will maximize all of your available benefits to help offset the out of pocket costs of dental implant tooth repalcement.
