The cost of a dental implant is what concerns many patients when considering dental implant surgery . The biggest disadvantage to dental implants is the high cost. Yet the cost is a long term investment and while implant may be more expensive at first they can actually be much cheaper over the long run. Not only can they be cheaper over time they are easily the best option for your long term oral health. The advantages of getting dental implants far outweigh the disadvantages of getting implants.
The cost of a dental implant is made up of several factors. The cost of the implant itself is determined by the tooth that is lost and what size implant must be used as well as the dental implant system that your implant dentist uses for the surgery. The experience and training of your dentist may make the surgery more expensive but also make it more likely to be successful and have the implant last longer. Some surgeries are more difficult than others and will be more expensive due to the complexity. Other cases may require other dental procedures before the implant can be implanted, a bone graft procedure is often necessary for patients who have had a missing tooth for a long period of time.
The cost of a dental implant is generally not covered by insurance, which, can make it more difficult for patients. Despite this fact it is still worth the investment in dental implants, no matter your financial situation. Other dental restoration can negatively affect your oral health over the years and this means that you will end up paying more in the long run. Dental implants last longer than other tooth replacement options and have fewer problems over the course of their lifetime. Dental implants are particularly useful for implant supported dentures as well.
