With a success rate of 98 percent, dental implants are a great investment if done correctly. When installed by a professional, implants will keep the surrounding teeth in place, help you retain your normal facial appearance and maintain a healthy jaw bone. While the cost of implants can vary substantially, it is worth it to at least consider them for your missing teeth.

Number of Implants Needed

Requiring multiple implants will naturally cost more than only needing one. However, the cost of even a single implant can vary wildly based on where in the mouth it needs to go. For instance, an implant in the front of the mouth will cost more than one in the back because our periodontists will have less room to work with.

Extra Procedures

Before dental implants can be installed, our periodontists may need to perform an additional treatment first. Bone grafting and sinus elevations are common before a patient can qualify for implants. A sinus lift may be needed to prevent the implant from perforating the sinus membrane. Bone grafting makes the jaw bone tissue stronger and better capable of accepting the implant.

You want to go to a periodontist office that has years of experience helping patients receive implants. Specialization is not a factor you want to skimp on. When inserted correctly, dental implants can last for decades. Do not inconvenience yourself in the future to save some money now.
