The Cost of Dental Implants

Happy Couple Under TreeIf you have lost a tooth because of gum disease, an injury, or tooth decay, you may have considered dental implants but are unsure of the costs. Determining a standard cost of dental implants is difficult because every patient and case differs from one another, and the fee depends on a variety of additional circumstances, such as insurance coverage. However, you can get affordable implants at Oral & Facial Surgeons of Arizona.

Insurance Coverage

Make sure to consult first with your insurance company to see if your plan provides coverage for dental implants. Because most companies classify implants as a cosmetic procedure, they tend to provide significantly more coverage for conventional solutions such as dentures. However, surgical costs may be covered by your health insurance plan in some instances. We are here for you and will help you in any way possible.

Factors Affecting Costs

At your initial consultation, the team of experts at Oral & Facial Surgeons of Arizona will fully detail all of your dental implant choices. From there we will tailor a treatment plan that addresses your precise needs and concerns. Factors that affect costs of dental implants include:

• Complexity of the surgery
• Geographical location
• Initial procedures, such as x-rays and CT scans
• How many and which teeth need replacement
• Material, type of post, brand, abutment and crown
• The particular surgeon’s experience and specialty

It is essential to understand when getting a quote that the total cost includes several aspects of the process, such as the procedure itself, implant, abutment, and crown. There may also be additional charges for the scans, anesthetic, and impressions.

Treatment Option Alternatives

There are procedures for dental implants that result in lower costs. For instance, the All-on-4® treatment alternative requires the placement of fewer implants compared to traditional implant procedures, making it a cost-effective option. It is an excellent choice for those suffering from failing or missing teeth with dentures.
