Dental implants are rapidly becoming the treatment of choice for many patients with missing teeth. Not only are they incredibly reliable for the long term, but they also provide patients with very natural-looking smiles. Dental implants mimic natural tooth roots more effectively than any other tooth replacement procedure, which means they stimulate the bone and maintain healthy bone volume.  

 

While dental implants provide many unique benefits that other tooth replacement methods don’t offer, some patients are discouraged by the initial cost of implant placement. Although implants are more expensive than some other tooth replacement procedures, the long-term benefits they provide make them a wise and worthwhile investment.

 

What Factors Affect Dental Implant Cost?

When you receive dental implants, you are making an important investment in your smile that will likely last a lifetime. For this reason alone, implants are worth every penny. There are many different factors that can affect the final cost of dental implant procedures, including:

 

  • How many implants you are receiving
  • Whether or not your implants are part of a hybrid dental appliance like All-on-4®
  • If periodontal disease is discovered
  • Whether or not you need a bone graft
  • If additional procedures such as extractions or sinus lifts are necessary

Here are a few of the unique benefits dental implants offer that make them well worth the cost: superior strength and stability when compared with other tooth replacement options, preservation of bone tissue, long-term reliability and convenience (no need to remove for cleaning purposes). In addition to these benefits, implants can help restore the beauty of your smile and renew your confidence.
