As such, you can feel confident in this worthwhile investment in your smile. During your appointment, Dr. Steven M.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Dental Implants

There are a number of factors to consider when determining dental implant cost, including the type of materials used and the number of implants you receive.

Number and Type of Implants

Dr. Balloch will perform a comprehensive exam of your smile that may include digital x-rays and advanced imaging. These scans can help him determine your jawbone health and an implant placement strategy. The size and density of your jawbone and the extent of tooth loss can impact the type and number of implants you receive. You may need a single implant and crown to restore a missing tooth, or you may require four to six implants to support a full arch denture. These variables can affect the overall cost of your implant treatment.

Materials Used

Dr. Balloch uses only the finest, safest, and most durable materials in dentistry, making dental implants a worthwhile investment in your health and appearance. 

Associated Costs

Sedation, anesthesia, pain medication, and surgeon fees may be applied to your unique treatment plan. The final cost will also include any supplementary treatments, such as a bone graft or sinus lift, that can ensure the success of your procedure.

Restorations

After your dental implant has integrated with surrounding bone tissue, you can receive your custom restoration. We can design and create dental crowns, bridges, or dentures to meet your unique needs. The type of restoration you receive will affect the cost of your treatment.

Invest in Your Appearance, Health, and Quality of Life

Dental implants provide the most long-lasting and far-reaching benefits as compared to any other restorative dental treatment. By replacing the tooth roots, these restorations help to preserve the jawbone structure, prevent teeth from shifting, and support your facial contours.

In addition, these posts provide a secure foundation for crownsbridges, and dentures. As such, implant posts can restore your natural ability to eat, chew, and speak with confidence, improving your overall quality of life.
