Many people will lose at least one tooth in their lifetimes. If this ever happens to you, then it is critical to remedy the situation immediately. Dental implants are by far the best restoration method, but plenty of people are understandably concerned about the cost. It is difficult to nail down a specific number because there are numerous factors that go into your personal dental implant cost.
Location of the Implant
The position of the implant will vary depending on where in the mouth it needs to go. Our periodontist in Harrisonburg, VA may need to make certain adjustments, such as altering the angle to match your jawline. When more advanced work is necessary, the cost will go up.
Number of Implants
Getting several implants will cost more than only getting one. In the event you do need multiple implants, you should speak with our periodontist about whether you can get them all put in at the same time. Depending on your health, you may need to get the implants inserted at different times.
Need for Extractions
Some people have already lost the entire tooth. Other people will still have part of the tooth in the mouth. Our periodontist will first need to extract the structure, which comes with an additional cost.
Our team will also need to look at your jawbone’s health. The implant goes directly into the bone and needs to fuse with the bone tissue. It is possible to still get implants, but our periodontist will need to perform bone grafting first. You may also need a sinus augmentation, and either of these treatments will come with a price tag.
