Dr. Amy Marckese-Braun is an Indianapolis, IN dentist that offers dental implants to her patients missing one or more teeth. The initial cost of dental implants may be more than other tooth replacement options such as dentures. But dental implants are a long-term investment in your overall well-being and oral health and may help to prevent the need for further advanced dental care. Dental implants offer a permanent solution for missing teeth and often require no future maintenance costs like dentures. But dentures will also need replaced, realigned, or rebased over time. This cost can add up depending on the wear and tear.
Avoiding tooth replacement because of treatment cost often leads to more expensive treatment down the road and decreased quality of life. The longer you put off getting dental implants, the more likely you are to need additional procedures that can increase total cost. If missing teeth are not replaced, it will have a domino effect on your oral health, slowly leading to changes that affect the health of the gums, teeth and fit of the bite.
Dr. Marckese-Braun understands that the upfront expense of the dental implant treatment can be difficult to manage. We have experience in helping you get the most out of your dental insurance plan. Our Indianapolis, IN dental staff is always happy to openly discuss the details of all of your dental implant costs and payment options with you during your consultation.
The total cost of a dental implant procedure can vary widely, depending on several key factors:
- Number of implants being placed
- Location and size of the implant
- Need for bone grafting or additional procedures to restore health
