Most patients with missing or damaged teeth want to get their dental problems fixed and most dentists agree that dental implants are the preferred tooth replacement method. The logical solution for most patients would then be to get those gaps in your smile fixed with dental implants. But this can be challenging because dental implants can be pricey. However, the price of inactivity can also be high. Yes, dental implants cost more than doing nothing. At the same time, they can be a low risk investment that can last a lifetime if cared for properly.
The Cost Of Our Services
We know that most patients are concerned about the cost and expense of dental implants. We also believe that each patient and their needs is unique and deserving of individualized care and attention. For this reason, we never offer a one size-fits-all payment plan. Here at Gentle Dentistry, our treatments are carefully and precisely crafted to meet the dental needs and well-being of each patient. Consequently, payment is expected at the time of service unless other arrangements have been made ahead of time.
The Cost Of Inactivity
Lost teeth create gaps in the mouth which can trap food, plaque, and bacteria. If left untreated, these problems can cause gum disease, tooth decay, and further tooth loss. They can also result in muscle atrophy, jawbone deterioration, facial deformation, and premature wrinkling around your mouth. This can result in patients looking years older than they actually are. Luckily, patients can help stop these problems with amazing dental implants. So although you may not want to spend now, spending money now on dental implants can help you save money on dental treatment in the future.
The Cost of Dental Implants
The actual cost of dental implants depends on a variety of different factors. These factors include each patient’s individual oral health, the number of required implants, where in the mouth the implants are located, geographical location, provider you choose, if any supplemental procedures are necessary, and what the individual patient desires are for their treatment outcome. However, on average, the cost for a single dental implant can range from $1,000 to $5,000 dollars. Keep in mind that supplemental procedures can add additional fees to the total cost.
Why You Should Avoid Discount Deals
One need only drive down the street or open a newspaper to see many great dental implant deals. But are these deals too good to be true? While it is true that we are all looking for a great bargain, many of these less-expensive products do not measure up when it comes quality, durability, and strength. Additionally, patients may notice steep discounts on the front end, but surprise costs on the back end when products crack, loosen, become infected, need to be replaced, or do not look right.
You can always rest assured that Gentle Dentistry only uses the highest quality products with a proven and safe history. You should also be aware that when you get a quote, the total fee should include multiple parts of the procedure and not just one implant piece. Your quote should be written and should include fees for the entire procedure, as well as cost of the implant, abutment, and the crown piece. Sometimes there will also be costs added for x-rays, anesthetic, and other services related to your oral surgery.
What Should You Do To Get Started?
If you decide that dental implants are the right option for you, you will need to schedule an appointment with Dr. Spector or Dr. Migdal. During this initial appointment, your mouth, gums, and overall oral health will be measured and examined, you will be provided an estimate of the exact cost for your dental implants, and you will have a chance to ask questions.
