If you have missing or damaged teeth, your dentist has probably discussed replacing them with dental implants. Compared to other options, implants provide a teeth replacement solution that will last longer, support your jaw bone health, and improve your quality of life. It is important to remember these key benefits when looking at the cost of dental implants in Asheville, NC.
Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants will cost more than dentures and dental bridges. This is because they are a sophisticated solution for tooth loss. No other option will deliver false teeth that function, feel, and look like natural teeth. An implant-supported restoration will replace your teeth at the root and not just the crown portion of your tooth.
How Much Will My Dental Implants Cost?
Unfortunately, that is not a simple question with a simple answer. Everyone has different needs and circumstances. Every patient will have to undergo a thorough evaluation with their dentist. Then, the dentist will create a customized treatment plan based on your needs. Then, they should be able to give you an idea of the cost of treatment. Many factors can impact your final bill.
List of factors that will impact your implant treatment
Estimating the cost of your dental implant treatment depends on several factors. Since no two patients are alike, you can expect your bill to differ from another patient’s. Things that will affect your treatment cost include:
- Number of missing teeth
- Location of missing teeth
- Size of dental implants
- Will you need any teeth extracted?
- Do you require a bone graft?
- Which restoration(s) will you need
- What is the current state of your oral health
Cost of a Single Dental Implant
The total cost of a single dental implant will include all the labor, your surgical needs, the dental implant fixture, the abutment, and the dental crown. The average cost for all of this is about $3,000 to $4,500. However, any of the above factors can impact this, and the cost could decrease or increase significantly.
Cost of Full-Mouth Dental Implants
It is much harder to quote an average price for full-mouth implants since many things must be considered. The cost can vary significantly. However, you should be prepared to pay tens of thousands of dollars to replace both arches of teeth.
Will My Dental Insurance Cover Dental Implants?
Regarding dental insurance, figuring out what they do and do not cover can be confusing. Dental implants may be considered cosmetic since there are other ways to replace teeth. However, most dental insurance providers will offer some type of coverage for parts of the treatments. For example, your provider will likely offer some dental restoration coverage. We suggest you call your provider to discuss what they and do not cover regarding dental implant treatment.
