Wondering how much it will cost to improve your smile with dental implants? While it’s important to check with your dentist for a detailed price estimate, here are a few factors that could determine how much you pay for your new teeth.

1. Number of Implant Placements

It should come as no surprise that you’ll pay more to replace several teeth than you will to replace just one tooth. The location of the implants in your mouth can also affect price, since some areas require the dentist to be much more precise in order to achieve the perfect angle.

2. Extra Procedures

If you require extra procedures before you can receive dental implants, your overall cost will go up. For example, if you don’t have enough bone mass to support one or more implants, you’ll likely need a bone graft. If the tooth you’re replacing is still in your mouth, you’ll need to have it professionally extracted, which will add to the overall cost.

3. Materials Used

There are a variety of materials that can be used for implants, but titanium is one of the most common because it’s easier to install and is typically accepted well by the body. It’s important to talk to Dr. Cotey about the benefits of various implant materials, and how they will affect your treatment cost.

The Cost of Not Receiving Implants

While it’s important to consider the cost of receiving implants, it’s equally important to consider the cost of not receiving them. When a tooth is lost, jaw bone directly beneath the missing tooth starts to degrade due to lack of stimulation. Over time, bone degradation can become so severe that it changes the shape of the face. Dental implants can prevent this from happening by stimulating the bone and encouraging healthy growth.
