Are you thinking about getting dental implants to replace your missing teeth? If so, you may be wondering how much the procedure typically costs. Unfortunately, the cost of implants can vary significantly from patient to patient, depending on a variety of factors. After your dentist performs a thorough examination of your mouth, he or she will be able to give you a cost estimate. In the meantime, here are a few helpful tips for determining how much your dental implants may cost.

 

 1. Implant Type

There are different types of implants available, and the type your dentist uses can affect the cost. Some implants can be placed in a single office visit, while others are placed in a two-stage process. The two-stage process involves two separate surgeries and is typically more expensive than a single-stage process. It is important to note that a two-stage process may be required in some cases, especially when a bone graft is needed.

 

 2. Number of Implants

The more implants you require, the higher your cost will be. Some dentists may offer discounts when multiple implants are placed at once, so it is a good idea to check..

 

 3. Extra Treatments

If you require any extra services, such as a bone graft, the cost of your treatment will increase. Since bone starts to degrade soon after tooth loss, your chances of needing a bone graft increase the longer you go without receiving treatment.

 

 4. Insurance Coverage

Some insurance policies offer more extensive coverage than others. To get a better idea of how much you will have to pay for your implants, check with your insurance provider to find out if your policy will cover all or part of your surgery.
