Cost of Dental Implants Philadelphia, PA

Quoting the cost of dental implants is not as easy as one may think. Giving a patient an estimate will require an in-depth examination of their teeth, gums and oral health. Since no two patients are the same, our dental implant treatment plans are unique. Each plan may require different steps that will affect the total cost.

Fortunately, dental implants don’t come with additional costs like other options. Teeth implants are more expensive than the most traditional restorations that replace missing teeth. For example, dental bridges and dentures can cost less because of the standard processes. However, the process is a great long-term investment in your dental health.

Dr. Drew Shulman is a local Philadelphia dentist providing all types of dental implants for patients with missing or damaged teeth. We understand that having a firm grasp on the financial burden is critical to deciding if teeth implants are right for you.

Dr. Shulman and our team will help you financially plan for your replacement teeth. He will conduct a thorough analysis of your entire mouth to accurately build a treatment plan. Our staff will then contact your dental insurance to help you maximize your dental benefits. You will be responsible for the remaining balance.

Determining the Cost of Dental Implants

The total cost of having your teeth replaced with dental implants can fluctuate depending on a few main factors.

The Type of Dental Implant

Dental implants come in a few shapes and sizes, each with it’s specific use-case. Your dentist will determine the one that will work best for you during your exam. The dentist usually bases it on your clinical condition and the type of dental restoration you need. For example, you could get an implant-supported bridge, implant-secured denture, or a dental crown.

The location of the missing teeth and the amount of bone available are important factors to see which type of implant you will need. The number of and types of dental implants you need will impact the overall cost significantly.

Preparatory Procedures

Before your dentist can surgically place your dental implants, Dr. Shulman will make sure that you have a healthy mouth. This means you must be in good overall health as well. You may need to make a few lifestyle changes before getting approval from your dentist for oral surgery. You must be free from any oral problems, such as gum disease, bleeding gums, and tooth decay.

Undergoing treatment for gum disease is very important to the success of your implants. Extremely decayed teeth may need root canal therapy or even extraction. If you lack bone tissue, Dr. Shulman may need you to get a bone graft. These preparatory procedures will increase the total cost but are necessary to guarantee successful implantation.

Dental Restoration & Prosthetics

The type of dental restorations you will need plays a large impact on the total cost of treatment. You will have a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture on the implant(s). The type of restoration you need depends on how many missing or damaged teeth you have and their location. Also, you may need a temporary restoration while your implants heal.

Oral Surgery

An oral surgeon will need to surgically install the dental implants into your jaw bone. This will require sedation so that you are comfortable during the surgical procedure. The type of dental sedation you choose will add a few hundred dollars to your total treatment cost.

A single dental implant that secures a dental crown costs on average about $4,000. This includes the surgical placement of the implant, the abutment, the crown, all the procedures, and some additional materials. The cost will go up from there because of your unique case.

We will work with you to see if your dental insurance covers dental implants, oral surgery, and additional treatments. Give us a call at (215) 372-1142 to learn if you qualify for our dental implant procedures.
