Dental implants vary in cost based on the amount of work required. Certain patients will have a higher cost based on bone density and other concerns that need to be addressed prior to starting the implant surgery. As a National average, we find that single tooth dental implants normally range in the treatment cost from $1500 to $7500. Dental implants are a medical device that is surgically inserted into the living tissue of your mouth. This is an intricate procedure that requires extensive training and coordination. Dental professionals trained in this procedure have found that placing an implant is an art and a science that requires attention to detail.
One way to help understand the cost is to understand the durability of the implant. A dental implant is deemed a permanent procedure that will be able to provide you with a complete smile once again. When positioned properly, a dental implant does fit in with the rest of your teeth. Most people are not able to identify a dental implant from a live tooth. We recommend working with Dr. Heorner because he is trained in dental implant surgery and is able to ensure the dental implant is correctly placed to ensure long-lasting success. What many patients do not realize is that a poorly placed implant can end up crooked and could destroy the bone. What ends up happening is the implant will need to be removed, which can be a difficult process, and may not be able to repair the damage done from a cheap implant dental company. Experience makes a world of difference with dental implants, and Bismarck Advanced Dental and Implants has the skills and experience you need to ensure the implants will be successful.
What Impacts Dental Implant Costs?
When planning for dental implants, contact our office to assist you. We can work with your financial situation to find an affordable payment plan to ensure your dental implants will be successful and affordable. Here are some elements that have a direct impact on the cost of your dental implants:
- The quality of bone or requirement of bone grafting. Location of the bone is another element that impacts the cost of the dental implant. Bone grafting is a large possibility for people with extracted teeth that have yet to be replaced and have experienced significant bone loss.
- The number of teeth that need to be replaced and the material used to create the teeth will impact the cost. When looking at options, there are some patients that prefer a removable bridge or denture.
- The type of implant used is another element that can alter the cost of the dental implant. Standard implants are normally 3 to 6 millimeters, but other patients may need 6 to 14 millimeters in length to secure the abutment to the tooth and hold it in place permanently.
