Dental implants are a durable and highly effective tooth replacement solution. If you need tooth replacement treatment, dental implants are the most natural solution for eating, cleaning, and smiling. Learn more about dental implants and their costs below!
The cost of dental implants varies widely. Here are a few factors that influence the cost of dental implants to include:
– The materials used
– How many implants you’re receiving
– The type of anesthesia used
– The clinic’s location and average prices in the surrounding region
– Your dental health, particularly the condition of your gums and jawbone
For example, the price of dental implants will increase if you require a bone graft or tooth extraction to perform the procedure. Bone grafts are necessary when your jawbone lacks the sufficient density to hold the implant securely in place. In these situations, a stronger anesthetic is necessary, which also increases costs.
Moreover, implants are priced individually, so the more implants you need, the more expensive your procedure will be. That said, the cost of multiple implants can be minimized with the use of bridges. With a bridge, two implants can support three or four abutments and crowns. As such, the cost of two implants with a bridge would be less than four individual implants.
With all these factors in mind, it is best to have an initial consultation with a dental implant specialist to determine how much your dental implant procedure will cost. Your dental implant specialist can provide a breakdown of all the costs so you know exactly where your money is going. Here is a general breakdown of how dental implants are priced:
– A comprehensive dental examination with 3D imaging
– Possible tooth extractions
– Dental implant installation
– Abutment hardware placement
– Dental crown fabrication
– Crown placement
As dental implants are designed to integrate with your jawbone, they are meant as a permanent tooth replacement solution. With proper care, the implant screw can remain strong and healthy for 25 years or longer. For some, implants last a lifetime.
That said, you may need to replace the crown, bridge, or abutment every five to ten years or so. The implant goes through a process of osseointegration, which means that it becomes a part of your jawbone. This process contributes to its longevity. The crown, bridge, and abutment, on the other hand, remain separate from your natural tooth structure. As such, they have less longevity. Still, replacing the crown, bridge, or abutment will be a significantly less invasive procedure, as the implant installation is already done.
The costs of dental implants are sometimes covered under insurance. However, it depends on your specific plan. Some plans may cover the procedure in full, while others will only cover 50 percent or less.
To find out how much your insurance plan will cover, you have a few options. You can call your insurance plan directly to ask how much they will cover. You may also be able to find out by reviewing your benefits information. Another way to find out is by asking your dental clinic to send in a coverage request, which will provide a precise quote for how much you can expect to pay for dental implants with insurance.
