Most dentists would agree that dental implants are your best option for replacing missing teeth. A variety of factors will determine the total cost of getting dental implants.
The location of where you are having the procedure done will definitely have an impact on the cost. It is important to remember that major cities and coastal areas tend to cost more than minor cities and rural areas. Costs can even vary within a city, depending on the neighborhood. The level of experience of the surgeon will also affect the price. Surgeons that have a lot more experience placing dental implants will usually cost more than those who are just starting out. Other factors that may impact the price are hospital fees and anesthesia fees. If you are looking to have dental implants placed and do not have enough strength or density in your jawbone to support the implants, a bone graft procedure will be required before you are able to receive the implants. This extra procedure will definitely increase the overall price. It is also important to determine if your insurance will cover the procedure. If they will not, most dentists offer flexible financing options.
