Patients who are candidates for dental implants often wonder how much the cost of a dental implant will be. The first step in understanding the cost associated with dental implants is to understand the process or treatment sequence to get a dental implant. Below, we will outline this sequence:
- If you have a bad or broken tooth, then it must be extracted. The average fee for this is $245 - $950.
- After extraction, a bone graft substitute will be inserted inside the extraction socket. The bone grafts vary in material and thus vary in their price. The average fee for this part is between $235 to $950. Your Implant Specialist Dentist will determine what type of bone graft will be suitable for your case.
- Now, once the extraction site is ready to accept the insertion of an implant. A Titanium screw will be surgically placed inside the prepared socket. This procedure based on the material of the implant used, the experience and skills of your dentist will cost between $950 to $2500. Implant type and the material of your implant is an important factor in the stability and success of your dental implants.
- Following complete healing and implant stability inside the bone; an implant abutment will now need to be fabricated to receive an implant crown. Implant Abutments can be pre-fabricated or generic or they can be custom made by a dental lab and thus called a Custom Implant Abutment. They can be made out of metal or white material with a price tag range between $560 to $1200
On top of an implant abutment, an Implant Crown will then be fabricated and cemented. Depending on the material of your dental implant crown which ranges from metal to non-metal to porcelain it can cost between $875 to $2000.
To come up with a conclusion of the fee for a dental implant, as you can see, there are many factors and variables one should take into consideration. But, the most important aspect of the whole process is to find the right implant dentist with the right knowledge and expertise to provide you the best service.
