There are many options for replacing a missing tooth or teeth. Among the most expensive, is a dental implant. So how much does a tooth implant cost? And is it worth paying that price?
A dental implant is a permanent solution for tooth loss. While you can use dentures or other temporary solutions to fill in the gaps in your smile, an implant is the only solution that allows you to treat your artificial teeth the same as your natural teeth. Not only will no one else need to know your tooth is artificial, you won’t have to think about it.
For many people, this makes the financial burden of a tooth implant worth the cost.
The final price will vary from person to person. At Rockville Dental Arts, we expect the cost of a dental implant to cost between $2,000 to $5,000 per tooth.
Why does the cost vary so widely?
A dental implant is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. Your tooth will be fitted to your mouth so that you will have the best long term results. The work you may need to properly install your tooth implant will be personalized to give you the best smile possible.
For another thing, we use the best materials. Your dental implant needs to last, so we take care to make sure that’s possible.
There are other costs to take into consideration. For example, some patients may need bone grafting. The tooth implant is installed in your jaw bone. This is done through a pain free procedure. If the jawbone isn’t healthy enough for an implant to take, then bone grafting may need to be done. This may add an additional $500 to $1,500 to your final tooth implant costs.
To get the best look at what your individual expenses may be, your best solution is to schedule a consultation and exam. This way, you can get the most personalized information on what your final needs and costs will be for a tooth implant.
