Dental Implant Cost
Dental implants are the preferred treatment option for replacing damaged, injured, missing, or diseased teeth, as this teeth replacement procedure significantly improves the standard of life, cosmetic appearance, and speech quality.
However, dental implant procedures are more costly than other dental treatments like bridges and dentures. Dental implant surgery is a lifetime investment, which is why it is priced accordingly.
Why Are Dental Implants So Expensive?
The dental implant procedure is only performed by skilled professionals known as oral surgeons. This cosmetic procedure is very complex and involves several risk factors, such as damage to other teeth or injury to the jawbone. In addition, the metal posts made from titanium and dental crowns that are molded and custom-made to match your natural teeth add up to the overall cost.
What is the Total Cost of a Dental Implant?
Dental implant surgery depends on multiple steps such as x-rays for a comprehensive dental exam, extracting damaged teeth, performing bone grafting, installing dental implants, placement of abutment, fabrication and customization of the dental crown, and the final placement of the crown.
Different dental practices have their particular cost for one or more of these elements, and Revive Dental and Implant Center ensures to provide a reasonable cost for this procedure.
A single dental implant per tooth may cost between $3,000 to $5,000. If a person pays for 3D imaging or requires multiple tooth implants, the cost will be more.
Does Insurance Cover Dental Implants?
Dental insurance covers dental implants, but it is only elective and covers some portions of the procedure. Typically, insurance plans may reimburse almost $1,500 per implant every year. If the whole procedure from start to finish stretches across the following year, a person may be able to collect reimbursement for both years.
The The All-on-4® Treatment Concept involves replacing multiple teeth and restoring the full function of a person's mouth. Four dental implants are drilled into the jawbone at a precise angle to maximize stability and comfort, and porcelain crowns are mounted on top to support multiple teeth ranging from 10 to 14.
Does Dental Insurance Cover All-On-4 Implants?
Dental insurance has limited coverage and only covers part of the All-on-4 procedure. Our dental professionals Dr. Chad Boustany and discuss the insurance coverage in detail with every individual before conducting the procedure.
Dental Implant FAQs
Some of the most common questions we encounter regarding dental implant costs are:
Does a Dentist's Location Affect Dental Implant Cost?
A dentist's location and experience significantly affect dental implant costs. Getting the surgery from a smaller town will save you some money.
How Much Does a Typical Bone Graft Cost?
A jawbone that is not dense enough requires a bone graft before dental implant surgery. A simple bone graft for a dental implant can cost between $300 to $800.
How Much is a Full Set of Dental Implants?
Placing multiple dental implants reduces the cost compared to planning the whole procedure for individual implants. The average price for a complete top or bottom set of dental implants can vary.
