Multiple Factor Affect Dental Implants Cost

Quantity of Dental Implants

The amount of dental implants will vary from patient to patient. A higher number of implants will increase the price. Usually a dental implant, implant supported crown and an abutment is needed for each missing tooth. Some patients are missing an entire dental arch of natural teeth. In this case, it will require an implant supported denture and six to eight implants and abutments to bring back your smile.

Type of Materials Used

At Robertsdale Dental Implants, we offer traditional dental implants and all-on-4 dental implants. All-on-4 is a more cost effective option that delivers exceptional advantages for certain patients who need to replace an entire row of teeth.

   

Inhalation Sedation

Sedation Options Used

Dr. Jason Northcutt offers both oral sedation and nitrous oxide. Implant placement is not especially painful. A local anesthetic will usually be sufficient to make you comfortable. Patients with dental phobia or high anxiety should choose oral conscious or IV sedation. Nitrous oxide is the less expensive option.

Preliminary Procedures

A certain amount of patients are good candidates for dental implants as is. However, some patients require preparatory dental care. If you suffer from missing natural teeth for an extended amount of time, you may have had some deterioration of your jawbone. For maximum stability, there must be sufficient jaw tissue present. A sinus lift or bone graft may be needed to restore lost jaw tissue at our Alabama dental practice. These preparatory dentistry procedures will increase the overall dental implants cost, However they can be the difference for a successful treatment.

The All-on-4® Dental Implants Can Reduces Costs

Dr. Jason Northcutt often uses All-on-4 Dental Implants to reduce your overall cost. If a patient is missing all or most of their teeth along the upper or lower arches, but is not a candidate for dental implant treatment because of bone loss. The All-on-4 method uses four strategically placed implants, patients can often forgo bone graft surgery. This can help reduce the cost of your implant treatment since you do not need an implant for each missing tooth. If you require dentures, the All-on-4 method reduces the number of implants needed, which can lower your costs.

How We Build Your Quote

 

Your consultation is as followed:

    During your visit at our Robertsdale, AL dental office, Dr. Northcutt will determine your oral health with a thorough examination. He will look for any issues including infected teeth and gum disease. Any issues may require treatment before the placement of your implant.

  • Examine Jawbone Density

    Next we will measure the density of your jawbone using advanced technologies such as a cone beam CT scanner. The scan results will determine whether bone grafting is needed prior to your implant surgery. 

  • Your different Implant Options

    Based on the location and the number of missing teeth, you may have options on where the implants are placed and how many dental implants are needed. Dr. Northcutt will help you understand every option’s cost and thoroughly explain all available options. He may suggest All-on-4® dental implants if you need to replace a full dental arch.

Are Implants Really Worth It?

In our experience, Yes, dental implants offer more than restore your smile. They can prevent a range of dental problems and keep your jawbone healthy.  

Every time you bite down, your tooth roots stimulate your jaw. If you are missing teeth, your jaw starts to atrophy from lack of stimulation. This can cause your facial appearance to change and shift existing teeth. By replacing missing teeth with implant-supported restorations and missing tooth roots with dental implants, you can reduce the chance of jawbone atrophy and other issues which can be more expensive than having dental implants placed in the first place.

Cost of Dental Implants
Frequently asked questions

Do you need to pay for 32 dental implants for a full implant-supported denture?

This is a common misconception. No, you do not need an implant for each missing tooth. A  upper or lower full arch denture can be supported with as little as four dental implants. This is called All-on-4 or All-on-X method. 

Are Implants Covered By Dental Insurance?

Implants are not covered under standard dental insurance plans, however other parts of the treatment may be covered. For example, it will most likely cover a portion of preparatory treatments such as bone grafting and gum disease treatment. Our talented staff will work with your insurance company to get you the best possible coverage. 

I see cheap prices advertised for dental implants elsewhere. Why should I not choose those providers?

It is likely these “bargain” prices are possible by using subpar hardware, hiring inexperienced dentists and cutting other corners that could eventually cost you much more than simply choosing a reputable provider in the first place.
