Dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth in our current era. Questions about the price of dental implants are one of the most common questions that we have been asked by patients at Cleopatra Dental. However, there is no simple answer to this question, so we will try to be very clear and transparent about our answer to this common question.
There are many factors affecting the cost of Dental implants. Dental implant costs can vary from anywhere between $300 (internationally) to $8,000. These factors affecting the prices of dental implants include the following factors (ranked by effect from the author’s perspective);
Location is one of the biggest contributing factors that impact dental implant prices. A single dental Implant might cost as low as $300 including crown and abutment in some developing countries. It might cost up to $12,000 if you are in a prime area like the United States, for example. Please note that getting dental implants in another country such as Mexico or Costa Rica can initially be a cheaper option. However, dentists have been known to cut corners in order to minimize the amount of travel and appointments needed for quality dental work. This can often come back to haunt you later and cost you more than if you had dental work done nearby.
Just like any other service or commodity, supply and demand play a major role when it comes to pricing everything, including dental implants. For example, a dental implant specialist is more likely to provide dental implant services at a more expensive price point than a general dentist. Moreover, if the dentist is fully booked or busy, or has less time and energy, then it makes sense that demand is higher than supply and price is going to be higher.
This point is controversial because it can be the result or the cause of the price of the treatment. At Cleopatra Dental, we use Nobel Biocare TiUltra Implants, which we believe are the best available type of implants. We provide our patients with the implant Infocard and only Nobel Biocare provides a lifelong warranty for their implants.
Additionally, the cost depends on how many dental implants you may need. A single dental implant is going to cost less than full mouth dental implants (full arch dental implants.) You might need multiple tooth implants, which will cost more than a single tooth implant. Implant supported dentures are also a great options as well.
Many other factors can affect the price of the implant treatment. For example, The amount of treatment needed before placing the dental implant would definitely affect the price. Some patients might need placement of bone grafts, sinus lift, collagen membrane, sedation, or even medical conditioning. The implant area might affect the price based on the esthetic need and how much effort and planning is needed for each individual dental implant placed.
