Dental implants offer numerous advantages over traditional dentures and dental bridges. In addition to replacing your missing teeth, Dr. Haque of Oak Brook Smiles provides you with new tooth roots. This prevents your other teeth from shifting towards the open spot and causing problems with your alignment. He always takes care to ensure that your replacement teeth match the color and shape of your remaining teeth as much as possible.
Since dental implants are permanent, you never have to take them out for cleaning or worry that they might fall out in the presence of others. They also don’t require the support of nearby teeth to function. Despite all of these benefits, many insurance providers classify dental implants as a cosmetic procedure and deny coverage for it. Their reasoning is that the patient can opt for dentures or bridges instead. That leaves many patients wondering “How much are dental implants?” They do cost more than other tooth replacement options, but most people feel the convenience is worth the additional expense.
Typical Dental Implant Costs
There is a lot more to the dental implant procedure than just getting one or more replacement teeth. You may incur some or all of these costs depending on your treatment plan:
- $1,000 for every tooth root and $900 for every replacement tooth that Dr. Haque installs.
- $750 for each bone graft required. You may need this procedure if the bone near the implant site is too weak to support it.
- $700 to attach each replacement tooth to its new root.
When you visit Oak Brook Smiles for your consultation, Dr. Haque will provide you with a written estimate that explains each individual charge.
