Dental Implant Cost

Dental implant costs
can vary widely from case to case. We'll try to be helpful here, to help you budget for this expense. They include the fee for the actual implant fixture, plus the crown, bridge, or denture that is attached to it. These are two separate procedures, and the fees are quoted separately.

Please be careful about price shopping for this service. If you get the cheapest implants, but then they only last for three years instead of twenty years, have you really saved any money? Dr. Chal is meticulous in his technique with this procedure and with everything he does, in order to give you the most comfortable and longest-lasting dental implants possible. He attends two hundred hours worth of continuing education courses each year in order to keep abreast of the latest techniques and to constantly refine his skills. Shortcuts may start out being cheap, but they cost much more over the long run.

At Dr. Chal's office, the cost of placing the implant root form can vary from about $1500 to $3000, depending on the situation. This fee is for the surgery alone and doesn't include the restorative cost of actually placing the implant. If bone grafts are required, there will be extra cost for that. If one tooth is missing, only one fixture will be required. If many teeth are missing, there could be considerable variation in the number of fixtures needed, depending on the situation and your preferences.

Placing a crown on top of the implant fixture will cost an additional $1500 to $3000, depending on the material used and any special requirements. If several teeth are missing, a crown unit may be required for each missing tooth.

For additional perspective on these costs, we have an additional page about dental implant costs that you may want to visit.

Placing a denture that is stabilized by implants, or doing a hybrid restoration or complete implant reconstruction can be considerably more complicated. Costs here can go into the tens of thousands of dollars.

You may get some help from dental insurance for implants. However, most insurance plans provide for benefits based on the least expensive treatment option for your case. So you may get some benefits, but don't expect a generous response from your insurance company. If you remember that they're in business to maximize their profits you can avoid frustration in dealing with them.

And finally, beware of hunting for bargains here. If you later have problems with your dental implant treatment, those problems can be very serious, even leading to a complete inability to eat properly, loss of bone or mouth structure, or other serious problems.
