The Varying Dental Implant Cost Explained
If you’re looking to get a dental implant procedure, you likely have looked at some of the options available. You may have even got some quotes on how much are dental implants and noticed that there is no definite answer to teeth implant costs.
How Much Does a Tooth Implant Cost?
If so, you might have seen that the prices can vary. Dental implants are, by their very nature, a complicated, in-depth major dental procedure, so they will not be a cheap venture for your oral health. But with that said, you should not have to pay more than the dental implants are worth.
At Brisbane Dental Implant Group, we provide high-quality dental implants that deliver value and performance. Please continue reading to learn more about the actual cost of dental implants and find out why they are worth as much. Once we have explained the process, you will know the value of finding a dentist who knows what they are doing, and you will be more than happy to pay for their expertise and see the value of their work.
How Much do Dental Implants Cost?
If you’re getting a single implant done, the cost of a single tooth implant can be anywhere between $1,000 and $3,000. On top of this implant price, you’ll also need to pay for the abutment (support) and the crown. So the total cost you can expect to pay per tooth is between $1,500 and $6,000.
- The above amounts are the out-of-pocket costs you can expect to pay without considering your private health cover or other insurance.
- The total price includes your consultation costs, but your final cost may be lower or higher depending on your circumstances, the type of treatments you need and the number of implants you’re getting
The money you pay for your dental implant costs includes consultations, the implant to be placed in your mouth, the metal abutment which holds the crown, the creation of the crown, surgical fees, and any bone graft that may be required along with the procedure. You may also need a CT scan or tooth extractions, depending on specific oral health issues you might have.
This complexity makes it difficult to say how much your implants will cost before a properly comprehensive consultation. You may have complications that need further work, such as gum disease, or you might need a simple implant treatment that does not require extra scans and appointments.
Furthermore, you might need to replace multiple teeth, which naturally means the cost of implants will be higher. If you’re replacing between two and four teeth with an implant and crown, you may be looking at a figure of up to $10,000. But again, this amount does vary depending on your circumstances and oral health needs.
How Can a Tooth Implant Cost So Much?
A dental implant is a complicated procedure involving precision and multiple consultations with your dentist. There is much more to these types of dental treatments than a routine visit to the dentist.
During your first consultation, we will examine your mouth and take the necessary scans and X-rays to ensure that you qualify as a dental implant candidate. An important thing to determine is whether your mouth has sufficient jaw bone to support the implant and ensure it will fit for years to come.
Once we have identified that you are a candidate for implant and surgical procedures, we can begin preparing your jaw and gums for your dental implant surgery. If you need bone grafts, then this step will be done in advance to give your jaw time to accept the bone graft and strengthen. This process can take a few to several months.
After this, the abutment is placed; this is a metal piece installed in your jaw, designed to hold the crown. Once your mouth has healed from the abutment placement, we will take more impressions of your mouth and let you choose the type of implant you want. Depending on your budget, you can get a fixed or removable implant.
The main reason why implants are so expensive is that they often require several consultations and treatments to complete. You might also need other dental procedures (e.g. bone grafts or sinus lifts) before your implants can be placed.
Everyone is different – and different treatments mean different costs.
