The Cost Of Dental Implants Explained

The Cost Of Dental Implants Explained

If you’re considering dental implants in Lebanon, TN from Tennessee Implant and Oral Surgery, you may be wondering how much you can expect to pay for your treatment. While implants may be a costly option for tooth replacement, they are the most durable solution for replacing missing teeth and they have many unique benefits that make them the ideal treatment.  Here are a few factors that play into the durability (and the cost) of dental implants:

The Different Types of Dental Implants

The cost of dental implants varies based on the type of implant you get. The most common types of implants include: 

  • Single-tooth implants – Single-tooth implants consist of a metal post that fuses to your jaw bone and functions as an artificial tooth root. This post is capped with a dental crown, which restores your missing tooth.
  • Implant-supported bridges – Implant-supported bridges use two dental implants to support a row of 2+ missing teeth, similar to a traditional dental bridge. 
  • Implant-supported dentures – This treatment uses a series of 4-6 dental implants. These implants are placed in the upper, lower, or both arches of your teeth. Then, a custom denture is made to snap onto the implants. Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures support your jaw health, will never move, and look and feel completely natural. 

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost? 

It’s very difficult to give you an accurate range for the price of dental implants. This is because there are a number of different factors that can affect the cost of your treatment, such as:

  • Preparatory surgeries like bone grafting, tooth extraction or alveoloplasty that may be required before your treatment
  • The number of teeth you’re restoring
  • The type of dental restoration you are getting
  • Your overall oral health

It’s difficult to provide you with a specific estimate for these procedures without an in-person consultation with Dr. Russell Kirk at Tennessee Implant and Oral Surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Kirk will assess your teeth and gums, determine the strength of your jaw bone, and give you an accurate cost estimate for your treatment.

Investing in Your Oral Health

Dental implants come at a higher price than other methods of restoring your teeth because they last the longest, look completely natural, and require no special care.

Dental implants last can last 30+ years with proper oral hygiene, and most patients will keep them for the rest of their lives. Alternative treatments like dentures and bridges may require replacement between every 5-10 years. In the long run, dental implants are often more cost-effective.

In addition, implants look and feel completely natural, and they also help support your jaw health by stimulating and strengthening your jaw bone. No other restorative treatment can prevent jaw bone loss.

Finally, dental implants will never move or shift, and they look and feel completely natural, unlike dentures and bridges. For all of these reasons, and quite a few more, implants are worth every penny.
