Dental implants are often considered the ideal tooth replacement option for patients with missing teeth. Although dental implants tend to be more of an investment compared to other tooth replacements, they prove to be a more cost-effective solution that can last a lifetime. At Precision Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, our board-certified periodontist, Dr. Daniel Lauer, is highly specialized in placing dental implants and strives to make the permanent solution a viable option for those who are interested.
Since the dental implant procedure is highly customized for each patient, the cost will vary from case to case. Prior to placing the implant post, Dr. Lauer often needs to perform a tooth extraction and ridge augmentation. On average, a single tooth implant with this preliminary work ranges from $3,500-3,600. The total cost of the entire dental implant procedure—from the initial work to implant placement to the final restoration—is approximately $3,500-5,000.
The amount you can expect to pay will depend upon a number of factors, which typically include the following:
- Initial imaging needed to create custom treatment plan
- Potential bone grafting needed prior to implant procedure
- Number of teeth to be replaced with implants
- Location where the dental implants will be placed
- Materials used to create prostheses
Since implants have a higher upfront cost compared to other tooth replacement options, our team works with patients to ensure the procedure fits comfortably within their budget. This often entails utilizing a financing company like CareCredit® to divide their total cost into more manageable monthly payments.
