Choosing to get dental implants is a good decision for many reasons. Among them is the fact that they can help prevent bone loss in your jaw and also provide you with stable substitute teeth. Before you make that decision, though, it is a good idea to make sure that you understand the costs of dental implants Farmingdale and know what is involved.
The Costs Of Dental Implants
The costs of dental implants Farmingdale are going to vary considerably depending on your location. The type of implant and how many you need will also be factors in the overall cost. If teeth need to be extracted, that is another cost.
Another factor is whether or not you need any treatment beforehand. This could involve treatment for gum disease, bone grafts, and gum grafts. For bone grafts, you also need to be aware that it will take from three to six months for the bone to heal before you can get the dental implants.
The overall cost of getting dental implants will generally include the cost of the implant, and the cost of the abutment and the dental crown. For these three things alone, you can expect to pay between $1,500 and $6,000 for a single dental implant. This cost does not include any insurance.
In order to get multiple implants, such as for an implant supported denture, you can expect to pay much more. It could cost anywhere from $7,000 up to $90,000 for upper and lower dentures, but an average cost is about $34,000.
Types of Dental Implants
Another consideration is the type of dental implant you will be getting. Dental implants can be made for a single tooth, a few teeth, or even for all of your teeth. Then there is the cost of the crown (or crowns) that will go on top of the implant.
Implant supported dentures usually require from four to six implants in each jaw. It can often be successful with just four, but individual conditions may mean more will be needed.
When looking at the price of dental implants, it needs to be remembered that they could last a lifetime with the right care. Other tooth replacement methods will cost less, but they have to be replaced every so many years – over and over.
Individual Pricing For Dental Implants
There really is no such thing as one cost for everyone. As seen above, each patient will have different needs and possibly need different treatments before and after. Remember also that there will be appointments after the surgery for checkups and dental cleanings to help protect the implants and to check on your overall dental and implant health.
Although dental implants are about 95 percent successful, there is a possibility of complications. If so, you may expect additional costs, and remember, insurance companies do not always cover the cost of implants, but more are doing so. One possible complication is that the implant could fail due to the bone not attaching to it or gum disease.
