When many people think about dental implants they think about dental implant costs.
The condition of your teeth and gums can greatly affect your overall health. With recent advances in implant technology, there has never been a better time to get dental implants. Have you considered the cost of not acting on your oral health? The longer you wait to treat missing or failing teeth, the worse they inevitably become. Doing nothing is not a good option as your oral and overall health only continues to deteriorate over time.
Advances in technology have reduced the cost of dental implants and reduced the healing times which have made the procedure much easier for the patient.
At Mile High Dental and Implant Centers we offer a complimentary consultation and a PLAMECA ProMax Cat Scan of your mouth.
This is a $350 value.
We will discuss the options available to you and the costs involved in each option.
Factors affecting the Cost
- Type of implant, which includes the material and type of post, abutment and crown
- Cost of the surgical procedure involved
- Number of teeth needing to be replaced
- The dentist/surgeon’s experience
- Creation of the prothesis
- Additional procedures such as bone grafting
When getting a quote, remember that the total cost includes all of the individual aspects of the procedure, such as the cost of the procedure and implant, the cost of the abutment and the cost of the crown or denture.
No two patients or their custom dental implant procedure are exactly alike, so the number of appointments, procedures and cost varies accordingly. After an initial exam and CAT scan your dental implant doctor should provide you with a plan, including an estimated number of appointments and cost. Your doctor will also alert you if there are any changes during the process. This occurs in some situations because when the doctor performs the surgery sometimes they uncover additional issues.
A tooth rebuilt using a dental implant is the next best thing to healthy natural teeth. A dental implant has comparable costs to other treatments to restore a tooth. This is because the other options available like a bridge or a denture do not last a lifetime and will most likely need to be replaced at some point. Most people are a lot happier with a brand new tooth made from a dental implant over the other options that are available.
