Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Dental implants are widely recognized as the finest option available for patients who are missing teeth. The restorative solution can restore form and function to your smile, while also protecting your oral health. Many patients who suffer from tooth loss have questions about the cost of dental implants. The doctors at our Palm Harbor, Trinity, and Spring Hill offices can help you understand the different factors that affect the total price of dental implant treatment. If you have been considering dental implants or any other restorative procedure, please contact our offices to make an appointment with one of our doctors.

Restoring Your Smile

A dental implant is a zirconia or titanium post that is surgically embedded in the jawbone to replace the missing tooth’s roots. Implants are attached to a dental crown, bridge, or denture and provide unparalleled stability.

On the day of your surgery, your doctor will make a small incision in your gum tissue to expose the bone. The dental implant will be placed in its optimal location and angle. This ensures it can provide adequate support for your restoration while withstanding pressure and bite force from chewing and speaking. Many patients will have a temporary restoration placed while the site heals. For some patients, we are able to attach the permanent restoration immediately after surgery using Same-Day Teeth®.

Safeguarding Your Investment

Our practice was the first in the Tampa Bay area to incorporate 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanners into all of our oral surgery procedures. The use of this advanced technology allows our doctors to evaluate the structure of your jaw and enhance treatment planning. This allows for extremely precise treatment and optimal outcomes.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Dental Implants

Each dental implant treatment plan is tailored to the individual patient’s needs. Because no two procedures are the same, cost varies from patient to patient. There are several factors to consider:

Periodontal disease treatment – Before beginning any implant procedure, your gums must be in good health.

Bone grafting – Dental implants need a strong foundation to provide support to the attached restorations. If you have suffered bone atrophy after tooth loss, our doctors can perform a bone grafting procedure to build up enough dense, healthy tissue.

Number of implants – Placing multiple implants requires a lengthier, more complex surgical procedure.

Type of implants – There are many types of dental implants made from different materials, each with their own associated costs.

Type of restoration – Dental crowns, bridges, and dentures, which can be made from various materials, each carry a different cost.

Financing Options

We believe every patient deserves access to the very highest level of care. We offer CareCredit®, a medical credit card with low monthly payments. Breaking up your total treatment cost can make implants a smart and affordable investment in your health.
