Dental implants are an investment and a necessity, just like any cosmetic dental procedure. Dental implants can give a person their quality of life back, allow them to eat the foods they once loved, and give them their confidence back. Dental implants, unlike veneers, replace severely damaged teeth or, in some cases missing teeth creating a new and functional set.
Dental Implants Cost
Cost can certainly vary from case to case. For example, we must perform a bone graft if a patient doesn’t have enough bone to support the implant. But on average, a single tooth can range anywhere from $3,000-$5,000, while a set of implants on the upper or lower mouth can range anywhere from $20,000-$35,000. They can last on average 20-40 years of the patient’s life.
“If someone has missing or shifting teeth, then dental implants could be the option for them,” Dr. Parker said. “Their life can change overnight just by getting them.”
The Dental Implant Process
We understand that the investment is a big one, and that’s why at Hales Parker Dentistry, we offer different payment options. When a patient first visits the office, they will meet with Kim, Dr. Parker’s Patient Concierge, who will conduct the initial consultation appointment, take x-rays and pictures, and go over all the finance options, including our in-house insurance membership plan.
“If a patient decides to take the next step and begin the dental implant process, we will be there for every part of it to make sure they’re comfortable and confident of their decision,” Dr. Parker said.
