The Costs of Dental Implants

Dental Implants are not inexpensive!  Regardless the type of prosthesis a patient chooses, there are significant costs in replacing a lost tooth.  This portion of the website will help you understand the costs involved in implant dentistry.

Dental Implants are made from pure titanium metal.  They are cylindrical in shape and act like the root portion of the missing tooth when anchored into the bone.  After the bone heals around the implant, a "post" is fabricated to which a crown is attached, resulting in a crowned tooth that looks and functions like a natural tooth.  Single or multiple implants can be placed.  Implants are generally placed after bone is mature (approximately age 21).  Implants can also be used to secure a removable partial or complete denture.

WHAT INFLUENCES THE COST OF DENTAL IMPLANTS?

1.  The Experience of the Dentist

4.  The Manufacture of the Dental Implants

5.  Is a CT Scan Needed to Help in Implant Placement?

6.  The Number of Implants Needed

7.  Is a Bone Graft Needed?

8.  Local Versus General Anesthesia

9.  Are X-rays Included?  Or Charged separately?

10.  Are Post Placement Office Visits Included, or Are They a Separate Charge?  What is the Fee for Post Placement Office Visits?

FINAL NOTE:

Calling dental offices to ask for the cost of dental implants is not like calling retail stores for the price of a particular item.  The factors listed above influence cost of treatment.  Dr. Lee encourages you to call for a consultation or second opinion appointment to fully answer your questions.  Before we answer the question of the cost of implant, we would like to share the following proverb:

"CHEAP THINGS ARE NOT GOOD, GOOD THINGS ARE NOT CHEAP"
