With dental implants, missing teeth are replaced permanently, giving you a lifetime of happy smiles, delicious meals and the confidence to feel your best around friends and family. With results like this, it’s hard to compare dental implants to temporary solutions like bridges or dentures. While we often consider dental implants in Dallas, TX the “gold standard” of tooth replacement, many patients are concerned on the overall cost of their treatment. With dental implants, there is no one-size-fits all solution, thus no set-in-stone price. Every step of the implant process is completely unique to each patient and dependent on their needs and smile goals. However, as a long-term investment in oral and overall health, dental implants should always be considered as an option for you or a loved one in need of tooth replacement.
When determining the cost of dental implants, we have to take many factors into consideration. Just as every person is unique in their own way, so is their mouth, and smile. We always begin the implant process with a thorough consultation and examination of your oral health. Using our advanced technology and cone beam CT scans, we can get a detailed picture of your bone volume, position of existing tooth roots or nerves, and discover how many teeth will need to be replaced. Following that, some patients may require bone grafting treatment to restore lost bone in the jaw that may have deteriorated due to lack of tooth root stimulation. Having proper bone volume is key for successful implant placement as the jawbone is what holds the implant in place. Additionally, the number of teeth you need to have replaced will play a big factor into your overall cost, as replacing just one tooth is much different than replacing a full mouth of missing teeth. We only use the highest quality implants from Keystone to ensure your new teeth will last for a lifetime with proper care. Taking all these factors into consideration requires a private consultation with our oral surgeon, Dr. Howard Cooke, where we can answer any questions you have and get you on the path towards confident smiles again.
We understand that budget is a concern for almost every patient and our team will always work with you to make dental implants as affordable as possible. One of the most effective ways to help pay for dental implants is through our financing programs. We work closely with CareCredit® and GreenSky® financing to help you receive the implants you need in an affordable way. Patients are able to use these financing programs to come up with monthly payment plans that fit within their budgets. We recommend asking our staff about this as an option for you!
