When replacing missing teeth, cost is often a major factor when considering dental implants. While dental implants can certainly give patients the most long-term and valued return on their restorative dentistry investment, they undoubtedly involve a greater upfront cost compared to other teeth replacement methods.
Why are they so expensive? The benefits of dental implants compared to traditional dentures, partials or bridges are unmatched. You’ll gain a replacement tooth or teeth that truly feel, look and function naturally. The expense of implant dentistry, however, can vary and includes several different important considerations.
How much will yours cost? The cost of your specific smile restoration using dental implants is based on a number of determining factors, including the following:
- location of the implant(s)
- the number of implants needed
- whether or not you need bone grafting or periodontal therapy prior to your implant procedure
- the cost of the actual implant
- the type of restoration (crown or overdenture) that you choose
At the office of Dr. Wayne Suway, we work hard to give patients the most value for their money. We pursue the industry’s leading options in implants dentistry, including top quality crowns for single tooth replacement and All-On-4 Implant Dentures for a more complete restoration. As an added advantage to our patients, Dr. Suway is able to perform the entire implants process right here in our office, which saves time and cost. We do our best to provide top quality dental implants at the most affordable rate possible.
The Value of Implant Dentures
When it comes to implant supported dentures, we recommend the innovative All-On-4 system. This includes the cost of 4 dental implants and their surgical placement in your jaw to secure a full arch of teeth and same day delivery of an all-acrylic upper or lower set of prosthetic teeth.
It is important that patients keep in mind that All-on-4 implant treatment typically results in much lower costs than traditional implant procedures since it uses fewer dental implants and often helps patients avoid the cost of bone grafting. It is also an excellent and cost-effective alternative for patients who have ill-fitting dentures, as this can result in multiple denture adjustment costs as the underlying bone resorbs over time. Dental implants are the only method to preserve the jawbone, making them a more secure and permanent restoration with significant benefits towards one’s quality of life.
Affordable Financing Options Available
While some insurance companies may help to cover the cost of dental implant therapy, our office offers ways to relieve your budget concerns if you are under-covered or without insurance. Be sure to ask about our flexible payment options and monthly financing plans to lessen your financial burden over time.
