Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
The cost of a tooth implant can be quite on the high side for most people. This procedure typically requires several visits to our dentistry and is worked on by several specialists. The tooth implant operation takes up a large amount time and resources. The materials used for implants, crowns, and modeling can add up to be quite an expense. Occasionally there are complications that arise that require their own costs and expenses such as tooth extraction or bone augmentation. We’ll be able to inform you of these possible problems and provide you with more information on the cost of dental implants during your consultation at our Fishers practice.
The average cost for a single dental implant can range anywhere from $1,500 to $2,000 and the crown that is placed on top can cost an additional $1,000 to $1,500. Dental insurance can help with the expenses, so be sure to give us a call to ask about our financial options. The total cost for a tooth implant procedure depends on factors such as the type of tooth, number of teeth being replaced, and the price of complications such as not enough bone to support the implants.
Why Should I Get Costly Dental Implants Over Bridges or Dentures?
Since dental implants are so pricey, why not go for a cheaper alternative such as a bridge or denture? It is better to go with implants for several reasons.
- Are stronger and more durable than bridges and dentures.
- Do not have to be removed to eat or sleep like dentures do.
- Look aesthetically natural. Most people cannot tell that you have artificial teeth.
- Can be cleaned in the same way as normal teeth. Brush and floss twice daily!
- Feel more comfortable than the alternatives.
