How much does a dental implant cost?
When it comes to costs for dental implant treatment (or any other service for that matter), it’s important to understand what the final cost is going to be. Make sure and ask your provider for a documented estimate BEFORE you start down the dental implant treatment path. What is the final price (or a reasonable price range) going to be when I have left the office for the last time with my great new smile?
What if something goes wrong? Who will pay for fixing it? For how long? How long will it take? How often will I have to come back? This is just the beginning of the list of questions.
It is very important that you understand the complete cost before embarking on this journey.

Dental implants can be used in many different ways to help patients improve their lives. They can be used to support one tooth (crown); they can be used to support a bridge of a few teeth; or used as a team of implants to support an entire arch of teeth. It is best to see your dentist and develop a treatment plan that will address your concerns but still fit your budget. For those people on very tight budgets, dental implants can be used to retain a conventional denture using something known as locators. Although they will reduce the cost and prevent the denture from accidentally leaving your mouth, the denture still rocks and comes in contact with some of the gum tissue.
Make sure and do your research so that you will be in a good position to evaluate all of your options before you make this investment in your health.
