If your dental insurance covers the entire cost of dental implants, then you do not have much to worry about as far as paying for the procedure. However, things become trickier when your insurance does not cover implants or only covers a portion of the cost. Our periodontist will need to review various factors to determine what the price for your implants will be.

  1. Overall Health of Your Mouth

Patients who already have healthy teeth, gums and jaw bone tissue can get implants inserted right away. In the event you have gum disease, cavities or other oral health issues, then those problems will need to be resolved first. These additional procedures will increase the overall cost of getting dental implants. Additionally, if the tooth in question is still partially in place, then it will need to be extracted first.

  1. Number of Implants

Multiple implants will naturally cost more than just one. Another component to this is whether our periodontist will be able to install all the implants at once or if they will need to be inserted one at a time.

  1. Location

Different areas of the jaw will require varying methods to install the implant safely and securely. For example, if the implant will be needed in the front of the smile, then the angle needs to match the existing jawline precisely to ensure a stellar smile. Implants in the back of the mouth will need to go in at a specific angle.

  1. Type of Implants

There are many different kinds of implants. You can get single implants, All-on-4®, and implant-supported dentures. The right one for you will depend on your overall oral health and how many teeth you need to replace. Our periodontist will tell you which procedures you qualify for.

Do Not Let Cost Get in the Way of Better Oral Health
