Dental implants are an effective and natural-looking option for those looking to replace missing teeth. These metal posts or frames are surgically positioned into the jawbone underneath your gums, providing a sturdy base to support the artificial teeth, known as crowns which look, function, and feel like natural teeth.
With dental implants, you can receive a confident, new smile while helping to stimulate bone growth. If you are considering dental implants, it is essential to understand the cost of the dental implant procedure before you move forward.
Average Costs for the Implant and the Crown
On average, dental implants range in cost from $1,500 - $2,800 per implant. In some cases, people interested in getting dental implants don’t realize is that there is also a cost for the crown that goes on the implant.
Crowns can range in cost from $1,000 - $2,800 per crown with a total of $3,000 - $5,000 per implant and crown. When purchasing dental implants, it is important to keep in mind that you are not just purchasing a product, you are purchasing a service.
These dental implants are medical devices that are surgically placed into living tissue, where there are nerves sinuses, and blood vessels, requiring the precision and expertise of an oral surgeon. Pittsburgh patients and those in the tri-state area can count on Dr. Goth, who is board certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, for all their dental implant needs.
Factors that Impact Dental Implant Cost
There are a range of individual factors that can impact the cost of dental implants, including:
- Specific type of implant needed
- Overall complexity of the case
Cost can also be influenced when the case is more extensive. For example, fixed removal cases, where the implants are fixed with screws but can be removed by removing the screws, if needed, and where extractions are required along with implants and bone grafting, can run between $20,000 to $35,000 for everything. This includes the dental implants, bone grafting, temporary provisional, and all other final details.
