- Placement of the crown
- X-rays and pre/post-operative care
Number of Implants Needed
A single dental implant to replace a missing tooth will cost less than multiple implants needed for a full mouth restoration. The number of implants required will depend on the extent of the tooth and bone loss and the desired outcome of the procedure.
Type of implant
Titanium implants are the most commonly used for dental implants, and they tend to be less expensive than other options, such as zirconia implants. Our oral surgeons will consider several factors, including the location of the implant and the strength of the jawbone, to determine the best type of implant for your needs.
Sometimes, additional procedures are needed before the implant can be placed, such as bone grafting or tooth extraction.
- Bone Grafting: A surgical procedure where bone, from human or bovine sources, is used to repair a deficient or damaged site. This is performed before, or at the time of, dental implant placement to increase the jawbone density to support the dental implant. Bone grafting is a safe and common procedure that can improve the success rate of dental implant surgery.
- Tooth Extraction: If a tooth is decayed, damaged, infected or loose, it may need to be removed to prevent further complications.
Type of Restoration
The type of restoration used to replace your missing teeth can affect the cost of the dental implant procedure. For example, an implant-supported crown will cost less than a full arch implant-supported bridge. Our oral surgeons will consider several factors, including the extent of tooth loss and your budget, to determine the best restoration option.
Sedation can help to reduce anxiety and discomfort during the surgery, making it a worthwhile investment for many patients, although it is not required.
- Local Anesthetic
- Nitrous Oxide Sedation with Local Anesthetic
- Office Based General Anesthesia with Local Anesthetic
