Dental Implants Cost

Dentist in Vancouver WA

There is a lot of confusion when it comes to implants. Many times dentists advertise dental implants starting at extremely low prices; however, many times there are hidden costs. You need to make sure they are not advertising specifically the dental implants cost. You see, the implant is simply the titanium screw that goes into your jawbone. That’s it. When you see a price for implants, the price simply covers the titanium screw. “I don’t just want the screw, I want my tooth back!” I know, continue reading, we’ll get you that tooth!

You mean there’s more? Glad you asked! There are a few more components involved in getting your new tooth. When discussing cost with your dentist, make sure you get the full story. Let’s discuss the other parts, the abutment and the actual tooth. The abutment screws into the top of the implant, and the tooth (or the crown) is secured on top of the abutment. All of the pieces fit together. This is what you want to know when pricing the cost of an implant. You need to ask if there is an additional charge for the abutment and the crown. That’s not all!

Yes… Even More Additional Costs

Do you need to have your tooth removed? Is there a cost for that? Is that included in the procedure?

And even more costs. There may be additional costs over and above the implant, abutment and crown. You will need to ask about procedure cost.   Is there an additional cost for sedation? Is there an additional cost for the CT scan and the exam? Will I need any grafting, and will there be an additional cost for that?

Checklist to Ask Your Dentist.

  1. What do dental implants cost, along with the abutment and crown? Remember getting a new tooth is composed of these three parts. What are the costs?
  2. If you still have your tooth, is there a cost to have that tooth removed? What is the cost?
  3. Is there a charge for the consult, CT scan and exam? What are the costs?
  4. Is there a cost for the sedation?
  5. Will I need grafting, and is there an additional cost for this?

All of these factors together comprise the true cost of getting a new tooth! If your dentist is unwilling to give you pricing and answer the above questions, move on.
