Many people can benefit from
dental implants. However, most people avoid them due to the perceived cost. It
is vital to ask a periodontist
before making a decision one way or the other. It is almost impossible to say
what the dental implant cost will be
for any one person because there are so many factors involved.
Additional Procedures Involved
incredibly intensive. Implants require a metallic post to be inserted into the
jaw bone with a crown going on top. However, this treatment cannot be done if
the patient has gingivitis. Gum disease needs to be treated first.
Additionally, some patients can get an implant immediately while others will
need a tooth extracted. Any of these will increase the cost.
In the past, many insurance
companies would not cover dental implants because they were seen as primarily
cosmetic. These days, many insurance agencies have started covering them. In
the event your insurance provider denies a claim at first, it is worth it to
inquire further. It is possible the company will partially cover the cost.
Number and Type of Implants
One implant will cost less
than several, but another huge factor is where in the mouth the implants need
to go. There are also different types of implants, such as implant-supported
dentures. This is where several implants are surgically inserted into the jaw
bone and an entire arch of teeth is placed over the metallic posts. This is
more intensive than simply a single post with one crown.
