Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
At Palm City Dentistry, Dr. Rene Aviles uses advanced techniques to provide the very highest standards of care. To ensure the satisfaction of his dental implant patients, Dr. Aviles combines innovative technology with years of specialized implant dentistry experience. Implants are titanium posts placed directly in the jaw, where they provide stable support for a dental crown, bridge, or denture. If you are considering dental implants, you likely have a number of questions about the procedure – including how much it costs. Dr. Aviles is happy to meet with you and discuss the cost of dental implants during a consultation at his Palm City practice. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
Factors Affecting Treatment Cost
The price of your dental implants procedure can vary considerably depending on your unique needs. In preparation for your implant placement, Dr. Aviles will review your dental health, aesthetic goals, and lifestyle to formulate a plan that is individualized just for you. Some of the most common factors affecting the price of implants include:
- The number of teeth you need to have replaced
- Your current oral health, which may necessitate prior treatment like periodontal therapy
- The number of dental implants you are going to receive
- The condition and density of the jawbone, which will determine whether a bone graft is needed
- Whether any teeth need to be extracted prior to your implant surgery
- The type of restoration you choose (dentures, partials, or crowns) and the materials they are made from
A Long-Term Investment
Dental implants and implant-supported restorations are typically more expensive than traditional forms of tooth replacement, like removable dentures. Patients choose dental implants because they realize that the up-front costs are well worth the long-lasting benefits. With proper care, dental implants can support your artificial teeth for decades. In fact, many patients' implants last for a lifetime.
Improving Your Appearance and Oral Health
Besides being a fantastic long-term investment, dental implants offer several benefits that are difficult to put a price on. For example, implants allow you eat and speak confidently without worrying your dentures will slip out of place. Dental implants also boast an advantage that no other restorative dentistry option can. By serving the function of a tooth root, dental implants prevent the jawbone reabsorption process that accompanies long-term tooth loss. This maintains the health of the jaw, preventing further tooth loss and the aged look that can result.
