Edward Lorents, DDS, can discuss your dental implant options as well as review the cost of dental implants during a consultation at his Oklahoma City, OK, practice. There are many factors that can affect your treatment total, particularly the type of implants you select. Dr. Lorents offers several types of dental implants, including Speedy Implants and All-on-4®, and will help you choose the right type for your situation. Dental implants are an important investment with long-lasting results. They can improve your overall oral health and prevent future dental issues. Additionally, at Dental Arts Center we provide the entire dental implant process onsite, allowing you to keep your costs lower, while still ensuring the highest quality of care.
A General Cost Estimate
The cost of dental implants is different for each patient. When providing your estimate, Dr. Lorents will first consider the type of implants you will receive. Traditional dental implants typically cost between $2,000 and $5,000. If you use implants to replace your full dental arch, the treatment can cost between $10,000 and $20,000. Speedy Implants usually cost $1,995 each, which includes the implant, as well as the abutment and dental crown.
There are many factors that can affect your treatment total
The cost of dental implants can vary and will depend on several different factors. These include:
- Number of implants: A single dental crown will require only one implant post, while a full denture may require up to six posts.
- Preparatory procedures: If you have suffered jawbone recession, you may need a bone graft or sinus lift, which will increase your overall treatment cost.
- Sedation: In some cases, local anesthesia may be enough for implant surgery, but in other cases, you may require a stronger, more costly form of sedation.
- Your restoration: The type, size, and material of your restoration is another major factor in terms of cost.
A Healthy Investment
When considering how dental implants will fit into your budget, it is important to remember their many benefits and how they can save you money in the future. Typically, implants are permanent as long as you take good care of them through proper dental hygiene. Therefore, you will not require a series of costly restorations, which can add up over time.
Dental implants prevent bone regeneration, an important advantage that can protect your overall oral health and appearance. Since your jawbone will remain stable, you will not have your restoration adjusted, as you would with a traditional denture. You are also less likely to suffer from additional tooth loss since your healthy jaw structure will support your remaining tooth roots.
Making Implants Affordable
At Dental Arts Center, we perform all steps of implant surgery onsite. We even fabricate dental restorations in our own laboratory. Therefore, we can offer the most competitive implant dentistry prices in the area. You also have a number of payment options to choose from. In some cases, implants can be partially covered by insurance. Your insurance company may pay for the cost of a standard restoration, and you may need to cover the remaining cost. We accept CareCredit® and Lending Club, and will help you file any necessary paperwork.
