The Number of Implants
The number of implants you need will have a big effect on your overall tooth implant cost. In addition to more materials, Dr. Kharmouche, Dr. Hardison and Dr. Hasan will need to spend a greater amount of time plotting the specific placement of each individual implant. These factors together will impact the total cost.
If Gum Disease is Present
If tooth loss has occurred because of gum disease
, Dr. Kharmouche, Dr. Hardison and Dr. Hasan will need to ensure that your gums are healthy enough to support the implants. If gum disease is still present, treatment will need to be provided before moving forward. The cost of gum disease treatment will be incorporated into your overall tooth implant cost.
If Bone Loss Has Occurred
Bone loss can occur if you have gum disease or if you have been without natural teeth for a long period of time. When this happens, a bone graft procedure is usually necessary to make sure that the implants have a sturdy foundation. The cost of a bone graft will impact the overall tooth implant cost.
If Extractions are Necessary
In some cases, a tooth will need to be extracted if it is loose or damaged. The amount of teeth that are extracted will affect the overall tooth implant cost.
The Type of Implants
Different types of implants have various fees. For instance, implant supported dentures will have a different tooth implant cost than one or two individual implants.
