WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:

Are Dental Implants Affordable?

The cost of dental implants varies for each individual person as no two mouths are ever the same. On this page, you'll find information about what is included in our dental implants solutions and general pricing. We’ve also shared information about dental financing options. However, the best way to get an accurate idea of what your dental implants will cost is to come in for a consultation. Start by calling a Treatment Coordinator.

About Dental Implant Costs

When reviewing and comparing costs, it’s important to consider that "dental implants" include an array of medical procedures that requires education, experience, and expertise. Cosmetic, reconstructive and implant dentistry is both art and science. Realize that you are buying a service rather than a product; a service that can change your life and give you teeth and a smile that will change your life and can last a lifetime. This is not a time in your life to simply find the cheapest bidder with generic implants, materials and overseas dental laboratories. Dr. Hogan has ample experience and education and takes pride in his office for using quality materials and time-tested methods.

First, here are the most commonly accepted figures: Without dental insurance or payment plans, a single dental implant may cost on average from $3,000 to $6,000 to be placed and restored. If you were interested in replacing all of your top or all of your bottom teeth with full-arch fixed implant bridges (often referred to as "All-on-4 " or "Teeth in a day") can cost from $15,000 to $35,000 (or more) per arch. But again, this is without dental insurance or payment plans. Many of our patients are surprised to find out they may qualify for a completely new smile for as little as $225/month.

Can you find a dentist who can provide dental implants for less? Absolutely. You can always find someone cheaper to do anything. Similarly, you can always find someone less skilled and with less experience. But do you really want to trust your healthcare and future smile with the cheapest bidder? No, of course not. We offer in-house and outside financing in an attempt to make this affordable for you. Come in and see what we can do for you.

What’s Included in Dental Implant Costs
Initial Consultation
The first time you meet with Dr. Hogan is extremely important. Much of the planning for the rest of the treatment will be done during the first consultation. The dentist will assess the health of the teeth and jaw bone. You will also need diagnostic imaging during this visit. At Full Implant Choice, we use an innovative, high-speed scanner (called the FACE HUNTER by Zirkonzahn) that, when combined with the CAD/CAM software, provides a photo-realistic 3D digitalization of a patient’s face to create highly individualized remarkably precision dental prostheses.

Surgery
After the initial consultation, you are scheduled for surgery implantation where the dentist will place the actual dental implants and the new teeth are fitted and adjusted. While these won’t be your final implants, you will leave our offices after this visit with beautiful, fixed, functional teeth.

Follow-Up Appointment
After 3-6 months, when the implants are fused to the natural bone, the dentist will take new impressions of your mouth and prepare a final, stronger, permanent set of teeth adjusted to a perfect fit. This helps ensure that the teeth will last for decades, and provide maximum support, beauty, and function to the patient.

Specialist Care
Dental implants fall into the category of restoration dentistry and have their own category of implantology. Implant surgery can be done by a periodontist, an oral surgeon, or a dentist with advanced training in implantology. Because of the specialist training necessary to perform the procedure, it’s common for the dental professional to charge a higher fee than for other services.

General Anesthetic
Some patients may choose to undergo general anesthetic during the dental implant procedure, meaning the patient is asleep for the whole procedure. This is more expensive and requires an anesthesiologist to be present for the entire surgery. It’s more common to perform the procedure using a local anesthetic, meaning the areas the dentist is working on are numbed but the patient is awake. Some patients might be too nervous during the procedure if they are awake, and if this is a problem you should consider asking for a sedative to ease your anxiety if you'll be under local anesthetic.

Bone Grafts
Patients who have lost a lot of bone may also require bone grafts. Bone grafts are performed in a separate procedure, several months before the implant is placed, and will require several months to heal and for the graft to fuse into the regular bone. This extra procedure will, of course, mean additional costs. This also means you won't be able to have the procedure done in one trip since the graft will take time to grow into the bone and you need to allow tissues to heal.

Material
The type of material used in the crown can make a big difference. Crowns made of acrylic resin are the most affordable but don't look nearly as natural as ceramic crowns or porcelain crowns. Porcelain and ceramic also tend to be stronger, which is another reason they're preferred for visible teeth. Resin crowns are also much less durable and will need to be replaced much sooner than other materials. The best quality overall starts with a solid block of Prettau® Zirconia, which is hand-colored and polished to match natural teeth and gums, and anchored to the implants. Zirconia bridges achieve a bite and smile that is virtually indistinguishable from healthy, natural teeth and gums and are able to withstand significant pressure and resist chipping, fractures and wear.

Teeth Location
Which teeth are being replaced also influences the cost of treatment. Front teeth are much harder for the surgeon to work on and require more skill to make the implant look like a natural tooth. As a rule, visible teeth tend to be more expensive, and the surgery tends to be longer.
Dental Implants Are More Cost-Effective in the Long Run
While more expensive than dentures, dental implants are the more cost-effective option for dental restoration, and provide a more natural, secure, longer-lasting solution. Other options, such as a tooth-supported bridge, have a limited lifespan and must be replaced. The American Dental Association reports that the average bridge must be replaced every 10.1 years. However, clinical studies have shown that implant-supported crowns (like we're discussing here) are effective at 20+ years in 95% of cases. This study shows a 98.8% 10-year survival rate of dental implants, which means the implants will almost certainly outlast bridges. Other studies have shown the effectiveness of dental implants in the shorter term. This Swedish study showed a 98.2% survival rate of the implant (Not for patients; there were no fatalities reported in the study!) over 32 months with the immediately loaded implants. Implants may be more expensive up-front, but over time their superior value and lifespan mean you'll be saving money in the long run.
