Dental implants represent much more than new teeth; they’re the beginning of a new phase in your life marked by carefree laughter and smiles, effortless speech, and virtually unlimited food choices. Your self-confidence can soar to new heights. Built on a foundation of sturdy titanium—one of the strongest metals on earth—dental implants are designed to provide you with a lifetime of reliable performance. Taking all these life-changing benefits into consideration, it can be challenging to calculate the full value of implants. However, the information presented here will help you understand how we determine the overall cost for your new teeth.
The actual dollar amount you’ll pay for your dental implants depends on several factors. You may need a single dental implant or two full arches of them. The number of implants affects the cost, as more implants means more materials are needed. To get your mouth into the proper condition for dental implant placement, you may need some related procedures done. These will also figure into your final cost. If you have decayed teeth that are going to be replaced with implants, we must first perform tooth extractions to make space. If you’ve experienced decay in your jawbone, we will need to rebuild it with bone grafting so that it can support implants.
