Dental Implant Costs

The usual reason why people hesitate on getting dental implants is its high cost. Although the price to pay is a little daunting especially if you are on a tight budget, the current success rates of implants are at the highest we have seen and will continue to increase as more innovations arise.dentalimplants

The costs of dental implants are dictated by a lot of factors. For one, your location..Specialist dental Implant Dentist who have had extensive training as well as oral surgeons also charge higher. In essence, you will be paying them for their expertise as well as their use of high quality materials. Coupled with this, the lab work as well as the customization of your dental implants adds up to the expenses. Taking of radiographs, making of dental casts, fabricating temporary crowns, the use of anaesthesia and even the use of computer tomography (CT) also contribute to these.

The number of dental implants you would like to have will of course affect the total amount to pay. In some instances, additional steps to be taken such as tooth extraction, treatment of gum disease and surgical procedures also contribute to the bill. The complexity of the case will dictate the amount of procedures to be done so you should also be ready for the possibility of additional charges once a treatment plan has been made.

The typical cost of a simple single implant in the US can range from $1,000 to $5,000 with the average cost around $2,500. The abutments that serve to anchor the crown to the implant as well as the chosen dental crown have a combined cost of $500 to $3,000. If additional procedures need to be taken, the price can reach up to $4,000 to $10,000.

According to the website CostHelper, patients reported spending $3,500 to $30,000 for two to six implants with a partial/full-mouth cosmetic dental bridge or a removable partial denture. The large range in price is also dependent on the type of implants used. In dentures, mini-implants which are less expensive, less traumatic and require more simple procedures can be used instead of the pricier conventional implants.

Two to six implants as well as a full set of cosmetic dentures will have a combined cost of $7,000 to $90,000 or more. If these full dentures will be supported by the implants, the average cost will roughly be around $6,500 up to $80,000 with an average expense of around $34,000.

At this point, you might be furrowing your eyebrows at the number of zeroes in those prices. Some patients are lured into advertisements for non-expensive implants only to realize that they are not of good quality. In other cases, this low cost only involves the implant and not all the procedures that need to be done prior and post implant placement.

It is important to discuss all the possible costs during the initial consultation as well as go over the possible treatment plans with your dental implant dentist London so you do not get surprised with the total bill. As pricey as they are, they will become a successful health and financial investment when done and cared for properly….read more
