Dental implants have quickly become the gold standard for tooth replacement, according to Dr. Dean and dentists around the country alike. Their longevity, esthetics, and restorative properties make them the most unique and effective treatment for replacing the crown and root of teeth. Once the implant post is placed inside of the jaw and given time to heal, a custom-made crown can easily be crafted to fit over the top of the post, making your smile complete. However, if you’re unsure what can influence the cost of this treatment, the team at Dean Dental Care is ready to help! Call his office today to set up your next consultation!
Dental implants are a highly customized treatment, which means that your tooth replacement needs will widely vary from any other patient’s. For example, if you needed to replace a single tooth vs. all the teeth in your mouth, it can be done, but it will cost much more to complete treatment. Furthermore, the state of your oral health as well as the condition of your jaw can greatly influence what your total price tag will be. If you need gum therapy to treat infected gum tissue or a bone graft/sinus lift to increase the available amount of bone tissue for implant placement, this will affect your costs as well.
Dental implants are made up of three distinct parts. This includes the titanium post that integrates with your bone tissue, the restoration that fits over the top portion of the implant, and the abutment that connects the two components together. Each of these parts come with their own costs, especially the restoration since it can change wildly depending on how many teeth you need to replace. For example, replacing a single tooth with one implant-retained crown is much cheaper than using a dental bridge or denture that’s designed to affix to several dental implants at once.
In order to best determine a more precise cost of your treatment, it’s crucial that you set up an initial consultation with Dr. Dean. Whether you want to learn more about the process or see if you are eligible for treatment, a consultation let’s you determine what your specific needs might be. The better you understand the number of teeth you want to replace and which treatments you’ll need to get it done, the more accurate your treatment estimate becomes. When you want a tooth replacement that not only looks great, but stands the test of time and prevents existing bone tissue from breaking down, there’s no other treatment quite like dental implants.
