Dental implants are often considered a lifetime investment in your oral health, but still many patients ask about the overall cost of dental implants. Your smile is unique to you and every person has different needs and smile goals that may alter the cost of dental implants. During a consultation with Dr. LaKendra Sakeena, we will be able to identify your dental implant needs and understand what your goals are. This will help us determine the overall cost of dental implants for you.
When receiving dental implants, it is important that your health be in top condition to allow for healing and successful integration of the implant post into the jaw bone. Gum disease is a common condition that affects nearly half of the American adult population and can damage the jaw bone and gum tissues. This infection will need to be treated before dental implants can be placed.
If you have failing teeth or few remaining teeth, they will need to be extracted to make space for dental implants. The number of teeth that need to be removed will alter the overall cost of dental implants.
A dental implant requires adequate bone volume to be successfully placed and stable within the jaw. When bone deterioration has occurred or there is not enough bone, bone grafting is necessary to restore volume and allow for implant to be placed
Certain teeth are more difficult to replace within the mouth depending on their location. If you have teeth that are in the upper molar area or in the front “smile zone” the cost may differ.
