Factors that influence dental implant costs:
- Quantity of dental implants needed
- The presence of periodontal (gum) disease
- If bone grafting is needed
- Tooth extractions
Number of dental implants: The number of dental implants that are needed obviously affect the overall cost of your dental treatment.
Periodontal (gum) Disease: If you have lost some of your teeth due to gum disease or currently have an active periodontal infection, you may first need gum disease treatment to restore your oral health. Optimum oral health is essential to the success of dental implants. Gum disease treatment is a separate procedure and will affect the overall cost of your treatment.
Bone Grafting:Dental implants are placed into jaw bone to mimic real tooth roots. This means you will need sufficient bone to support dental implants. Patients with significant bone loss from gum disease or other problems may need a separate procedure to increase bone density before the implants are placed. This will affect overall costs.
Tooth Extractions:Sometimes teeth may need to be pulled before implants can be placed. Tooth extractions are separate procedures and can affect the overall cost of dental implants.

Before dental implants, dental bridges were the traditional method used to replace teeth. Dental bridges last an average of 10 years and require a dental procedure on teeth that may otherwise be healthy. This unnecessarily puts other teeth at risk for tooth decay and periodontal disease. If you take into consideration that dental implants can last a lifetime and minimally affect the surrounding teeth, dental implants are more cost effective treatment option in the long term.
