When you’re missing one or more teeth, it can be difficult to complete daily tasks, like eating, speaking clearly, and smiling with confidence. The good news is that if you’ve suffered from tooth loss, dental implants are available to restore the appearance and function of your smile. However, they are quite an investment. Continue reading to learn about the different factors that contribute to the cost of dental implants.

Type of Dental Implant

There are several ways that dental implants can be placed. A lot of the time, the implant is placed, and then the incision is stitched over. After a few months, a second surgery takes place to install the abutment. This is typically done if bone grafting is needed to ensure the stability of the implant. In other situations, a longer implant is placed in a single surgery. Ultimately, it all depends on your unique case.

Number of Implants

The higher number of implants you have placed, the more your procedure will cost. This is one of many reasons why people who are missing multiple teeth may opt for fewer dental implants or an alternate tooth replacement option, such as dentures or dental bridges. Discuss your different options with your dentist to create a plan that meets your needs.

Additional Oral Surgeries

If you need to have additional surgeries before having dental implants placed, you’ll ultimately be paying more to restore the health and appearance of your smile. For instance, some patients need to have an extraction, while others may need a sinus lift or bone graft before the placement procedure takes place. These treatments will contribute to the overall cost.

Location of Teeth

It generally costs more to replace a front tooth because it requires additional attention to detail to match the exact angle of your jawbone. Depending on the location of your missing teeth, additional techniques may be needed to ensure that your implant is placed precisely in the perfect spot!

Overall Dental Health

If you are dealing with a dental problem already, like gum disease, this will need to be treated ahead of time. There also may need to be additional precautions taken to cater to these issues. They can add up to your overall cost.

All of these factors play a role in the cost of your treatment, but they’re important so you have the most successful surgery possible. When you infect in dental implants, you’re investing in the future of your smile!
