Invest in Your Oral Health
One of the biggest concerns most patients have about receiving dental implants is the overall dental implant cost. However, over the course of your lifetime, dental implants are an affordable investment in your oral health. Since every implant case is unique to each patient, there is no set cost of receiving implants. As an implant specialist with nearly 50 years of dental experience, Dr. Patrick Nicosia is able to evaluate the state of your oral health and give you an estimate on the dental implant cost in order to reach your smile goals during a detailed consultation.
Factors that Determine Implant Cost
If you have damaged or failing teeth, they will need to be extracted before being replaced with dental implants.
Dental implants require adequate amount of bone volume to be successful. If you have experienced bone loss, we may need to perform bone grafting treatment to restore what was lost.
Gum (periodontal) disease treatment
Dental implant surgery requires you to have a mouth free of disease. Those with periodontal disease will need to receive treatment before implants can be placed.
Severity of the case
If you are missing all of your teeth and are in need of full arch dental implants, the cost will differ from those who only need to replace one tooth. The more teeth that need to be replaced, the more the overall cost will change.
Get Long-Term Results with Dental Implants
When choosing dental implants, you are making a positive investment in your oral and overall health. While dentures and dental bridges are quick fixes for missing teeth, they do not provide the long-term bone stimulation, security in the jaw, and natural appearance that an implant offers. With proper care, dental implants can last you the rest of your life, while with dentures you may need to replace them every few years. Thanks to our advanced technology and Dr. Nicosia’s periodontal expertise, your dental implant surgery will be in the best of hands.
Cost of Dental Implant FAQs
It is normal to have several questions about the cost of dental implants because it is a big investment. Dr. Nicosia wants you to feel confident in your decision to replace your missing teeth using the most successful solution. Here are the answers to a few of the most common questions about the treatment:
Can I use my dental insurance?
Most dental insurances will not pay for the entire cost of the treatment; however, depending on your specific policy, it may cover certain aspects until you reach your annual allowance. We work on your behalf with your insurance company to file the necessary claims and paperwork to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket.
How can I pay for dental implants?
We accept all common forms of payment to cover any balance not paid by your insurance company. We also accept third-party financing with CareCredit to keep your new smile affordable.
Why are dental implants cost-effective?
Dental implants have over a 95% success rate. They have the potential to last for several decades with the right aftercare, so you never need to worry about having them replaced. They can also lower your overall dental costs. The implant posts preserve your jawbone’s density to stop dental drift. By keeping any remaining teeth firmly in place, it reduces your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and additional tooth loss down the road.
