Cost of Dental Implants

A couple smiling lovingly after their Dental Implant at Westlake Oral and Plastic SurgeryMissing teeth have a significant impact on your life. One of the most obvious effects is the deterioration of your smile. With gaps in your smile, your confidence can plummet. Eating and speaking become more difficult. Without teeth, you may find that you can no longer enjoy all of your favorite foods. You may develop a lisp, or find that others have a hard time understanding you. Tooth loss also leads to bone loss in the jaw. Over time, the bone changes shape, which can lead to other issues. At Westlake Oral and Plastic Surgery, we offer dental implants to replace your missing teeth. However, how much does this revolutionary treatment cost?

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a modern alternative to bridges and dentures. This treatment uses titanium posts, which we surgically implant into your jawbone, to support your replacement crowns. As you heal from surgery, your natural bone fuses to the posts, integrating them gradually into your jaw. The posts stabilize in the jaw, essentially becoming the roots that support ceramic crowns. Implants are a versatile treatment that can be used to replace any number of missing teeth, from a single tooth to an entire arch of teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Along with restoring the functions and aesthetics of your mouth, dental implants provide numerous benefits over traditional treatments.
•  They look and feel completely natural.
•  The crowns mimic the color and light-reflection properties of natural enamel.
•  Your replacement teeth are more comfortable. The teeth are supported by the posts, rather than your gums.
•  They are easier to care for. They can be brushed and flossed just like your natural teeth.
•  The posts aid in protecting the integrity of your jawbone. They function as your natural tooth roots and stimulate the bone. This stimulation triggers your body to send essential nutrients, keeping your jaw strong and healthy.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Treatment with dental implants is highly customized, and your treatment plan is tailored to meet your specific needs. Because your needs are different from those of other patients, the cost of your treatment will vary based on your situation. While they tend to cost more than traditional methods of treatment, the fact that implants are designed to last a lifetime can make them worth the investment. There are several factors that affect the total cost of your dental implants.
•  The number of implants needed. One of the biggest contributing factors to dental implants is the number that you need. For single tooth implants, the average cost ranges from $1,000 to $3,000. The addition of the abutment and the crown can add $500 to $3,000. Multiple tooth replacement can range from $3,000 to $30,000 or more, while a full mouth replacement can cost between $7,000 and $90,000, with an average of approximately $34,000.
•  If you need a bone graft. If you need to undergo a bone graft before getting dental implants, this surgery can increase your overall cost.
•  If you have insurance. Because dental implants are becoming more prevalent for replacing missing teeth, more and more insurance companies are starting to cover at least a portion of the cost. Check with your insurance company to find out whether or not you are covered by implants.

The exact cost of your dental implants will depend mainly on your specific situation. For more information, and to schedule your consultation, call Westlake Oral and Plastic Surgery today at (805) 267-9766.
