It’s important that you have a detailed discussion with your dentist about the costs of each stage of dental implant tooth replacement plans before beginning the process. Most dental offices are happy to help you with dental insurance claims and financing options to assist you in fitting the cost of implant supported tooth replacement into your budget. Don’t hesitate to ask questions and take the time you need to plan for the cost of your treatment.

The Importance of the Tooth Replacement Consultation

The cost of dental implant supported tooth replacement plans varies dramatically from patient to patient. In order to get an accurate estimate of your out of pocket treatment costs, you’ll need to receive a thorough examination. Your dentist will walk you through every step of the procedure to help you plan for the out of pocket costs. Don’t throw out the idea of implant supported tooth replacement because you’re concerned about the cost. Schedule a consultation and talk it through with your dentist.

Factors that Impact the Cost of Dental Implant Tooth Replacement

There are a number of factors that impact how much your implant tooth replacement plan will cost. Some of these variables include:

  • The number and placement of missing teeth
  • The number of implant posts needed
  • The material used to craft your dental implant posts, including zirconia and titanium
  • The type of dental restoration you need, crowns, bridges, partials, and dentures
  • The need for preparatory treatments, including tooth extractions and bone or soft tissue grafts
  • The use of dental sedation to ensure comfort during surgeries
  • The training and experience of the dentist or specialist
