Tooth loss is one of the most common issues that we see among adult patients at Amores Dental. This can be the result of a variety of issues- but no matter what, the results are the same:
Dental implants are the ideal tooth restoration solution because they look, feel, and function more like natural teeth. In this article, we'll explain what you need to know about the cost of dental implants.
Dental implants are one of the most expensive tooth restoration solutions. However, the cost is worth it because it is also one of the longest-lasting options. According to the experts, with proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime.
On average, dental implants range from a low of $3,500 to a high of $6,700. This covers the cost of the device itself and the surgery with local anesthesia. If additional procedures are required, this cost will increase.
There are several factors that impact the cost of dental implants, including:
Location of the implants
Location of the dental clinic
Experience/expertise of the dentist performing the procedure
Type of dental implant (traditional vs. mini)
Number of teeth being replaced
Dental implants may be used to replace a single tooth or as a support for a multi-tooth replacement.
The average cost of a single dental implant with a porcelain crown is $4,800. Typically, implants are made of titanium, but some patients are allergic to the trace metals in these devices. In this case, a zirconia implant will be recommended, which is a one-piece, ceramic device. This is more expensive than a titanium implant.
The average cost of full-mouth dental implants is $43,000 to $65,000.
Other options include implant-supported bridges and dentures, which are designed to replace several missing teeth in a row. On average, you can expect an implant-supported bridge to cost approximately $5,000. Implant-supported dentures, on the other hand, use 2 or more implants to replace an entire arch of teeth. On average, implant-supported dentures cost $6,000 to $8,000 per arch.
There are a few things that you can do to reduce your out-of-pocket costs associated with dental implants.
First of all, take your time to shop around and seek second or third opinions. You want to find a clinic where you can afford the procedure- but you also want to make sure that the dentist is qualified to perform the procedure. You may not want to choose someone that is just starting out and doesn't have much experience.
In some cases, dental insurance will cover a portion of dental implant surgery. Our office staff will be happy to work with your provider to determine your coverage. If your insurance does not cover this procedure or if you do not have insurance, you may want to discuss payment options. Many clinics, including Amores Dental, offer financing options. This will allow you to pay for your treatment upfront without breaking the bank and to make small, budget-friendly payments over time.
Dental implants are among the most expensive tooth restoration options available. This is because they look, feel, and function more like natural teeth than other options on the market. However, this cost is worth it because they are designed to last a lifetime.
If you have been missing teeth for some time, you will be glad to have your speaking and chewing ability back and your confidence restored.
When consulting with a dental professional about dental implants, it's critical to ensure that you choose a qualified provider. There are a few questions that you can ask to help with this process:
How many procedures have you performed and how many have been successful?
What steps are required and how much will this procedure cost?
What additional costs may occur unexpectedly?
What are the benefits and risks associated with this procedure?
What should I expect when it comes to recovery time?
When can I go back to work?
Will I have any additional out-of-pocket costs following the procedure?
