It can be nearly impossible to put an exact price on how much dental implants will cost until an initial consultation is conducted. Each and every person's mouth is different and at different stages of dental health, so it's not possible to give a price until a consultation and x-rays are performed. Once the consultation is conducted, the dentist will be able to give you a "roadmap' of what needs to be done to get your mouth ready for a dental implant. At this point he or she should be able to give you more information on pricing for the procedures.
There are three major things to keep in mind when shopping for and pricing out dental implants:
Don't Wait: If you are in need of a dental implant procedure, don't hesitate. The longer you wait, the more likely your costs will go up. As an example, let's say you lose a tooth and want to get it replaced. Instead of taking care of the issue right away, you wait. With the missing tooth and an open hole, the bone around the missing tooth deteriorates and will require extensive repair before an implant can be placed. If treated right away, this would have not required additional treatments and the cost would be much lower.
If you don't want to wait, we invite you to schedule your initial consultation to see what the best path to success is for you. After the consultation, we can give you a much better idea on pricing and scheduling. Schedule your free consultation now.
Price Shopping is the Wrong Mindset: In this day and age it's very common to shop for a product or service solely based on price, however, when it comes to your health this is the exact opposite mindset you should be in. Instead, be looking for the most qualified professional to help you with a successful procedure. Additionally, be cautious of the "teeth in a day" promotions. It is almost impossible to receive a dental implant in a day and if you do it can be rushed and not successful. Cutting corners puts you at risk, and similar to the above point, may cost you more in the long run.
Dental Implants are an Investment: Instead of thinking that you are simply filling in a missing spot in your mouth, view dental implants as an investment in both your dental and mental health. There are so many benefits to getting dental implants and your personal happiness and health cannot be measured in dollars and cents.
Getting dental implants is a big step in the right direction for improving your dental health. It's important to educate yourself and find a dentist that is an expert at dental implants. The exact price of dental implants again varies, however, scheduling your free consultation is the first step to finding out pricing specific to your procedure. Schedule your free consultation now.
