The Cost of Dental Implants: A Long-term Investment in Your Smile
When you consider the unparalleled benefits provided by dental implants, most patients consider the treatment option a worthwhile investment in their health and appearance. Dental implants restore your smile's foundation after tooth loss, providing a stable, new structure for your dental crown, bridge, or denture. Dr. Munal Salem and his skilled associates will evaluate your smile and provide you with an individualized estimate to help you determine whether the treatment is right for you. We can also help you explore different financing options. Contact Alpha Dental Center to schedule a consultation and learn more about the cost of dental implants. We proudly serve patients in Southshore, MetroWest, South Coast, Cape Cod, and surrounding areas.
Which Factors Affect My Treatment Cost?
The cost of your dental implants treatment will be largely shaped by a few variables:
- Number of Implants - The number of implants you require depends upon the type of restoration you need. A dental crown requires only a single implant for support, while a dental bridge or denture may require the placement of two to eight implants. Although a single post costs less than multiple implants, we can often provide some discounts on the placement of multiple implants.
- Type of Implants - There are several types of dental implants on the market today. In addition to traditional, full-size titanium implants, other types include ceramic implants and mini dental implants. Mini implants are typically less expensive than traditional implants, but are not as strong. Tooth-colored ceramic implants offer unique benefits, but are generally more expensive than titanium implants. We prefer full-size titanium implants because they provide superior strength at a mid-range price point.
- Preparatory Procedures - In some cases, patients require certain additional procedures before they can receive dental implants. For example, you may require bone grafting or sinus lift surgery to supplement your jaw bone. These treatments carry additional costs, which we can discuss with you before treatment begins.
- The Cost of Surgery - Your surgical costs can make a huge difference in the overall cost of your dental implant placement. Your surgeon's fees, the cost of anesthesia or sedation, and any facility fees will be included in this price. This may also include charges for any diagnostic scans and other technology used in planning your surgery. Our team will help you understand these costs in detail.
The Cost of Restoring your Implants
It is important to keep in mind that at some dental offices, the cost of your restorations may not be included in your initial quote. Your dental implants are only the foundation for your dental crowns, bridges, or dentures. These restorations can vary greatly in cost depending upon the materials and skill used to create them. We provide high-quality restorations made from dental porcelain, zirconia, and other durable, lifelike materials. Our team will help you understand what your total price will be for your surgery as well as your restorations so you clearly understand the path of your treatment and the costs you will pay during each step along the way.
Flexible Financing Options
We believe that every patient deserves a healthy, functional smile. Our team is happy to help you explore financing options for your dental implants and restorations. We accept all major forms of payment and offer CareCredit℠ patient financing, which offers low- and fixed-rate interest plans to break up the total cost of your treatment.
