How much do Implants Cost? Influencing Factors and Considerations

While the various technological components of dental implants come with a fixed price tag, the cost required to restore a patient’s smile aesthetics and functionality varies according to a number of factors. The question “How much do implants cost?” therefore has quite a broad spectrum of answers. So, before we strive to provide an approximation, we shall take a look at the various factors that play a role in determining the cost of dental implants patients presenting with one or more missing or irreparably damaged teeth can expect to pay:

  1. The number of dental implants: Understandably, the cost of oral rehabilitation depends quite heavily upon the number of teeth requiring replacement.
  2. The cost of dental implants and case complexity: The more complicated a patient’s oral health problems, the more work and resources is required from Dr. Brueggen and his team, which may result in greater costs.
  3. The need for bone grafting surgery beforehand: In cases where patients present with advanced bone loss in the jaw, an additional surgery may be required before dental implants can be placed.
