The following factors can affect tooth implant cost:
Number of Teeth Involved
If you need several teeth replaced, the cost of treatment will be greater because Dr. Withers will need to spend more time treating you as well as use additional materials to complete your procedure.
If you have jaw bone loss because of missing teeth, you may need to undergo a bone grafting procedure before dental implants can be placed.
Type of Procedure
You have several options when it comes to receiving dental implants for tooth replacement. Separate procedures have different fees, and we can discuss pricing during your consultation.
If Dr. Withers determines that you need a sinus lift before having implants placed, the cost of your treatment will be affected because of the additional procedure.
If you have gum disease, we must eradicate the infection before we can place implants. Dr. Withers may recommend a scaling and root planing treatment or laser gum surgery to treat gum disease.
Extractions and Being Edentulous
If you need to have teeth removed before receiving implants, the cost of dental implants will increase. If you do not have any teeth present, the implants may need to be placed after a bone grafting procedure.
