Dental implants are essential for many people. However, it is natural to wonder how much you will need to spend on such a procedure. The cost of dental implants can vary significantly from one patient to the next. Our periodontist in Miami, FL will inform you of your price before proceeding, but here are some factors that could impact the cost of dental implants

The Need for Additional Treatments

Some people can get an implant right away. Others will require extractions first to fully remove the tooth before continuing. Additionally, our periodontist needs to make sure there is no presence of gum disease or other oral health issues. Treating these problems requires extra funds, and you need to take care of them before you can get dental implants. 

Location of the Tooth

Some places in the mouth require more advanced work compared to others. For instance, replacing a tooth in the front of the mouth requires expert precision to ensure the implant goes in at the right angle. There is also less space compared to a molar in the back. 

Number of Implants

Several implants will cost more than only one. However, if you need to replace teeth in an entire arch, then you should ask about All-on-4 dental implants. These are much more convenient for you in the long run and do not require as intensive of a procedure. 

Get Financial Help If Necessary at Our Office

In some cases, your dental insurance policy will cover some or most of the cost. You should contact your provider before seeing us to see if they cover dental implants and to learn your co-pay. In the event you need to pay out of your own pocket, then ask us about financing options.
