Are you curious about the cost of your dental implants in Dallas? If so, the best way to get a precise estimate is to contact our office. However, we also want our patients to have easy access to the information they need, which is why we’ve included the variables that influence the price of your treatment the most. Read on to satisfy your curiosity and take your first step toward a complete, healthy set of teeth.
We offer different types of dental implants based on the number of teeth that you’re missing. Usually, the more teeth you’ve lost, the higher your treatment price will be. For a single missing tooth, we will recommend an implant-retained crown. If you have lost multiple teeth consecutively, we can recommend an implant-retained bridge to literally “bridge” the gap in your smile. Lastly, for those missing all or most of their teeth, implant-retained dentures offer the most stable full smile replacement available.
After your initial consultation, you’ll have your dental implant surgery, where small incisions are made in your gums to access your bone. Once tiny holes are created in the jaw by your implant dentist in Dallas, your dental implants are placed. Next, you’ll begin a healing process called osseointegration that takes at least 3 to 4 months to complete. Then, any abutments are attached (small connectors), and Dr. Bolouri will take impressions and images of your smile with the implants, which are used to create your final restorations. Each stage of this treatment will incur a separate cost, which will add up to the total price of your implants.
While dental implants in Dallas tend to come with a higher price tag than other treatment options, their incredible benefits make them well worth it. Primarily, as the only replacement that restores your teeth from the roots up, dental implants allow you to eat, speak, and smile confidently. Your replacements look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. Plus, dental implants stimulate the jawbone to prevent it from deteriorating after tooth loss, which provides you with a fuller, more youthful facial appearance.
Usually, dental insurance does not cover dental implants because they’re seen as an elective procedure. However, we will do all we can to maximize your insurance benefits and minimize your out of pocket spending. For example, your insurance may be able to cover certain aspects of your treatment like the initial consultation, treatment of preexisting issues like gum disease, and part of your restoration. This will all depend on your specific plan, which is why it’s best to contact our office so we can help!
