The cost of an dental implant starts around $1,500 up to $1,800. Anything less may be an indicator that you’re getting an inferior product or one not designed for a particular location in your mouth. Short term the implant device may appear to be fully functional. But if we look at the cost and the cost of other materials for dental implants compared to their operational life, the difference may be likened to the difference between Toyo’s and Michelin tires. Here again you may get what you pay for and the initial cost may appear affordable, but in the long term you are going to get a better result with respect to how it functions and how long it lasts if your provider installs Michelins.
The real concern for the patient is ‘where and how’ to find inexpensive quality dental implant, and most likely the driving adjective is ‘inexpensive’. This is a result of the perception by the patient that teeth are utilitarian to their daily life. That’s really not the case, but to put the cost into perspective let’s examine what goes into the cost of a dental implant.
Different manufacturers put different prices on similar rods made from the same material. Some manufacturers include some kind of an extra charge in the dental implant’s price for their brand name. This is a lot more esoteric and therefore harder to explain. It’s like trying to explain the difference between Polo and Hanes T-shirts. However, some of these manufacturers provide lifetime guarantees and replacement for failure.
In our Sandy Springs office our goal to provide a single implant for about the same cost of a 3 unit bridge. The benefits are 1) preserving the underlying bone structure, 2) a more natural bite and 3) the ability to avoid cutting two healthy teeth to accommodate the bridged tooth.
We make the effort to do the right thing for our patients. Please give us a call for your complimentary consultation.
