If you have a missing tooth or teeth, dental implants can be used as a replacement, to restore your beautiful smile. Dental implants are a good option for replacing missing teeth because they are stable, secure, and look very natural. But how much do dental implants cost?
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial roots or screws that are placed into the upper or lower jaw to provide support for fake teeth. Implants are usually made of titanium, and can be used to replace any number of teeth.
Dental implants are usually recommended for individuals that are in good overall health, and have enough bone structure to support the implant. When dental implants are cared for properly, they can last a lifetime.
How much do dental implants cost
A single dental implant can cost somewhere between $1,000 and $3,000, but there are several variables that can impact the final cost.
Dental implants are fully customized for each patient, so the cost will vary based on individual needs. Factors that impact the cost of dental implants include:
- Number of implants needed. The cost of a single-tooth implant will obviously be less than the cost of multiple dental implants.
- Location of the dental practice. Dental implants typically cost more in regions with higher operational overheads.
- Material used. The quality of the material chosen for the dental implant will also affect the cost.
- Experience of the dental surgeon. Dentists that are more experienced with dental implant procedures, generally charge more for their expertise.
