All-on-4® dental implants have grown in popularity in recent years due to being a comprehensive solution for replacing numerous missing teeth. However, a question Dr. Hutton receives frequently is how much the procedure is going to cost. The truth is that it can differ greatly from one patient to the next. Here are some of the factors that go into determining a final price tag.

Additional Problems That Need to Be Addressed

Some patients are missing a lot of teeth and just need to get the implants. Others have additional issues that have come up that need to be corrected so that the mouth is healthy enough to support the dental implants. For example, if loss of jawbone tissue has taken place, you will need to undergo a bone grafting to strengthen the tissue so that it can support your restorations. Periodontal disease can also develop more easily with several missing teeth, so any infections need to be eliminated before you will be a good candidate for All-on-4®.

Whether You Need to Go to Multiple Offices

Your procedure will be more affordable if any additional treatments can be done at the same office. If you have to go around town getting everything done by different periodontal professionals, you are ultimately going to pay more. That is why going to the office of Dr. Hutton is a great advantage. You can get bone grafting, gum tissue regeneration and much more at our dental practice.

Type of Implant You Get

Different types of dental implants are out there, and they each carry their own price. For example, you can get endosteal implants, which are placed in the jawbone, and there are subperiosteal implants, which are placed directly above the jawbone. Different types work better for different patients, and the price should not be the only factor you take into consideration when deciding.
