Dental Implant Cost: What to Expect

Woman budgeting for dental implants

Losing a tooth can be jarring, and we understand that budgeting for a dental implant procedure may be a bit daunting. That’s why we’ve put together this post with what costs to expect with a dental implant procedure and how to move forward in making the best financial decision for you.

The Costs of Dental Implant

As much as we would love to give a straight answer to this question, it is difficult to say what the cost of a dental implant will be, as there are many factors that could affect the cost of your dental implant. These variables range from the type of dental implant you receive to how much your insurance company is willing to cover. Dental implant procedures are considered a surgical procedure in which oral surgeons must gain training and certification to perform. As such, if you pay out of pocket, a good procedure will not be inexpensive. Even so, it is important to research what your insurance company can cover and speak to your oral surgeon on the details of what the procedure may cost based on their analysis of your condition. Most good oral surgeon’s, including ours, will also work with you to navigate the costs of your procedure.

Factors That Contribute to the Cost of a Dental Implant

To better understand what we mean when we talk about the variables that affect the cost of your dental implant, it is important to see the procedure, not as one task, but as a procedure with multiple steps- each having an effect on the overall cost of the dental implant. In some dental offices, the initial consultation in which your oral surgeon looks at your overall health and the state of your gums and jawbone is something that can be charged for. Luckily, The Center for Oral Surgery of Las Vegas provides this consultation alongside CT scans and X-rays for free. The type of dental implant you want or need may also vary in price or number depending on your condition. It is also important to note that location and insurance coverage can also be variables that determine the cost of your dental implant procedure.
