Exploring the Cost of Dental Implants
The cost of dental implants at our Nashville, TN practice depends primarily on the extent of treatment you require. Iroquois Family Dentistry can bundle the services and appointments required for an implant-supported crown for as low as $4,500. Dental implants are an investment in your health and quality of life that can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. Dental implants are not covered by insurance, but our financing options can make this treatment affordable on virtually any budget. We invite you to learn more about what influences the cost of dental implant treatment.
Choice of Surgeon
In general, a more experienced surgeon using the latest tools and methods will charge more than a less experienced surgeon using a less sophisticated approach. However, it is important to remember that this experience and technology can ensure that your procedure is safe and provides the best long-term benefits.
The most accurate diagnoses can be obtained through digital diagnostic imaging. At our practice, we routinely use CT scans, surgical guides, digital impressions, and CEREC® custom restorations for your convenience, safety, and long-term satisfaction. This technology results in costlier treatment, but can minimize the risks of surgery and help to provide exceptional results.
Each and every patient who walks through our door is unique. Therefore, no two treatment plans will be the same. In order for implant placement to be successful in the long term, preparatory procedures may be necessary in some cases. For example, if you have tooth decay or periodontal disease, these problems need to be addressed before continuing with implant treatment. Some patients may lack adequate bone density to support a dental implant. In these instances, a bone grafting procedure may be required. While treatment for conditions such as gum disease or cavities is typically covered by insurance, bone grafting may not qualify for coverage unless it is determined to be a medical necessity.
Type of Restoration
Another significant factor associated with the cost of dental implants is the type of restoration attached. Dental implants are quite versatile, and can be restored with crowns, bridges, and dentures. The type and quantity of dental materials used in the fabrication of your restoration will be reflected in your treatment fees. A single crown will cost less than an implant-supported bridge, and a bridge will cost less than an implant-supported denture. As a general rule, the more teeth you are replacing, the more your treatment will cost.
