Have the Price of Dental Implants Decreased?
Dental implants are the most durable, most comfortable and most modern Skokie dental implant replacement solutions available today and also a solution that many people refuse to consider because they think they cannot afford it. In the past, implants were very expensive, indeed, but the costs of getting an implant have decreased dramatically in the last few years and the trend seems to continue, too.
Dental implants are still slightly more expensive than dentures, but the actual amount you will have to pay for your implants will be determined by many factors. Here are some:
- The implantation method used – the mounting of implants requires a minor surgical intervention for the pole and another one for the abutment, but if you have adequate bone density in the implantation area, you can have the complete procedure performed in one go. Same-day implants are usually cheaper than the traditional method of installing the metal pole in one session and mounting the abutment on top of the pole in another;
- The need for bone grafting – if the tooth to be replaced with the implant is missing for a long time, the jawbone in the area might need to be reinforced with grafting. The procedure will add costs and will also prolong the time that the implanting process lasts;
- The number of implants you need – advanced techniques allow for the mounting of multiple crowns on one implant, which will decrease the per tooth price.
