Dental Implant Cost
The cost of dental implants are dependent on a number of factors, including the number of implants being placed, the amount of bone loss, type of materials used, insurance coverage, etc., ranging from just a few thousand dollars to an upwards of seven thousand dollars for a single implant.
Associated Costs of Dental Implants
It is good to keep in mind that the price listed for a dental implant can be misleading as there are multiple steps to the dental implant process (learn about how the process works here). Prices of dental implants may not include associated costs such as the implant crown, the 3D scan, exam, or even the initial consultation. Also, technically, a dental implant is just one part of the process of replacing a lost or missing tooth, as well as only one of the pieces of materials used in the dental implant procedure, so it’s good to be clear about what is included in implant prices.
For example, some dental professionals only perform one part of the dental implant process, sending the patient to a general dentist to complete the other part. So the price here for a dental implant may be around $2500, for example, but that won’t include creating and placing the final crown, which would include an additional fee. Depending on the dentist, associated costs such as the consultation, exams, x-rays, etc. may be individually charged on top of the dental implant price given.
Dental Implants from Start to Finish
After the initial consultation and 3D X-ray, the whole dental implant procedure starts with placing the implant inside the jaw, waiting appx. 4 months for healing, then finishing the process with placing the final crown. By digitally planning this process, we can design the look and function of the final crown before the implant is placed. This is one of major advantages to have one dentist work on both the Implant and the Crown, so that they can have that foresight of the final crown aesthetics while planning the angle and location of the dental implant. Here at Ponderosa Dental Arts, we take care of a majority of our patients receiving Dental Implants throughout the entirety of the process from missing to to placing the final implant crown.
