If you are missing teeth, dental implants can completely restore the functionality and beauty of your smile. These titanium posts are surgically implanted into the jawbone to provide stable support for dental crowns and dentures, which are often combined with the All-on-4® technique. If you are considering your tooth replacement options, you may have questions about the cost of dental implants. By performing every stage of the implant process in our office, we are able to significantly lower your cost while maintaining the highest quality. Our affordable dental implant solutions allow our dentists to frequently perform these procedures, at times even more so than many oral surgeons, continuously refining their approach and skills. The dynamic pairing of cost consciousness and exceptional care provided by leading, highly experienced dentists have also made our practice a destination for dental implants. Our doctors and the team at Stubbs Dental in Bountiful, UT, and Layton, UT, are pleased to provide exceptional dental implant procedures that can fit into most budgets.
Investing in Your Oral Health
When weighing the costs and benefits of dental implants, many patients go forward with the procedure, concluding that it is worth the investment. Dental implants support artificial teeth unlike any other dental treatment available, allowing patients to speak, laugh, and chew without worrying that their dentures will move out of place. Since they are implanted into the jawbone, the titanium posts provide a lifetime of stable support for your restorations.
Many patients find it difficult to place a dollar amount on such a positive change to the look and functionality of their smile and quality of life.
Dental implants are an invaluable asset in that they help patients retain a healthy jawbone. If tooth roots are missing for an extended period of time, the adjacent bone will begin to break down due to lack of root stimulation. This can have detrimental effects on your oral structure, causing teeth to shift and changes to your facial appearance.
For instance, the cheeks may become concave, the face may sag, and the lips can pucker. The good news is that dental implants help halt this degeneration by essentially serving as the tooth root. Many patients find it difficult to place a dollar amount on such a positive change to the look and functionality of their smile and quality of life.
Case Complexity and Number of Implants
Since each dental implant procedure is customized to the patient, total treatment costs can vary considerably depending on the patient’s needs.
Case complexity, treatment timeline, and the number of implants are major factors in determining overall cost. Your restoration type, as well as any preparatory procedures, such as tooth extraction, are crucial factors in determining your case complexity and implant needs. Also affecting overall cost is the treatment area and amount of surgery required to deliver the treatment you need.
To offer an example, a patient who has a single tooth that is missing will require one dental implant and a dental crown. The cost for such a procedure will be less than for a patient who has complex restoration needs that involve tooth extraction, multiple implant placements, and a full restorative arch.
Sedation Dentistry Options
Patients who require a minimal number of dental implants may only require nitrous oxide or oral sedation. Patients undergoing extensive surgery and receiving several implants, or those who have a fear of dentistry, may require a more aggressive sedation therapy, such as IV sedation. In terms of cost, nitrous oxide and oral medications equate to a modest expense, while IV sedation is typically a more costly option.
