Cost of Dental Implants

Dr. Amy Marckese 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. We do our best to offer affordable dental implants.

The Cost of Not Replacing Your Teeth

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.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Dr. Marckese understands that the upfront expense of the dental implant treatment can be difficult to manage. Our dentist in Indianapolis, IN has experience in helping you get the most out of your dental insurance plan. Our dental staff is always happy to openly discuss the details of all of your dental implant cost and payment options with you during your consultation.

The total cost of a dental implant procedure can vary widely, depending on several key factors. During your consultation, Dr. Marckese will examine your teeth, gums, and overall oral health. She will take X-rays or scans to see if there is enough bone for the implants. Each implant patient is different and will have different needs, therefore the cost of treatment will vary from patient to patient. The key factors that will determine the cost of your treatment include:

Number of Teeth Implants

A dental implant is a very intricate and sophisticated dental tool. This tiny piece alone will cost you between $1,000 to $3,000 per post. The more teeth you are missing, the more implants you will need to secure the false teeth.

Location and Size of the Implants

The location of your missing teeth also play a large role in the number and size implant posts you will need. There are several different sizes available to accommodate the various locations along the jaw bone. The bone density will differ in each location, determining the size implants you need. The price point for each size varies.

Additional Procedures

We already know you need to have good oral health and enough bone to qualify for dental implant. Patients who fail to meet these requirements will need to have additional procedures before surgical implantation. Dr. Marckese may need to extract teeth that are damaged or decayed. You many require bone grafting to create greater bone density to support the implants. Additional procedures to restore your oral health will add a significant amount of money to your implant treatment.

Dental Insurance and Coverage

If you have dental insurance, they may offer some coverage for your treatment. Some dental insurance plans offer partial coverage, while others offer not coverage at all.

Other Fees

Other fees that you will need to consider include things like dental sedation, X-rays, scans, and post-operative care. Often the cost of these things get overlooked.

Please plan ahead when investing in your one of your greatest assets, your teeth. While the cost of your treatment is higher than other traditional options, dental implants are the best solution to restore your smile. The cost of a single tooth dental implant will run between $3,000-$5,000, for your reference. The cost of a full mouth dental implants will run into the tens of thousands of dollars.
