Dental implant cost is affected by a variety of factors, including the type of restoration you need and any required preparatory procedures, such as CT scans and surgical guides. At our Rockville, MD, practice, the investment in a simple single tooth implant solution starts at $4,950.00. Dr. Victor R. Siegel performs every stage of the dental implant process, from preliminary bone grafts and sinus lifts to placement surgery and implant restoration. We offer several types of tooth replacement solutions, ranging from single dental crowns to full implant-supported dentures. During a consultation at our office, we can design a personalized treatment plan using advanced CEREC® technology and our cone beam computed tomography (CT) system, as well as provide an estimate of your final cost.
Factors that Affect Cost
Since the needs of each patient are different, we tailor treatment plans to each individual smile. As a result, the overall cost of treatment can vary significantly. The price varies depending on your oral health, the number of teeth that require replacement, what type of sedation you select, and other criteria.
Current Oral Health
It is important that you treat any underlying oral health conditions before receiving dental implants. We can effectively address gum disease, tooth decay, and many other concerns at our office. Whether you need periodontal treatment or root canal therapy, our team is committed to ensuring you have optimal oral health prior to tooth replacement. Treating any of these conditions will increase your total treatment cost.
When tooth loss occurs, your jawbone may begin to deteriorate. The longer you wait to seek treatment, the more bone tissue you may lose. In some cases, you may not have a strong enough jawbone to support an implant. To restore your candidacy, Dr. Siegel can perform bone grafts as well as specialized sinus lift procedures in the office. These treatments are likely to raise your overall cost and will also increase your treatment timeline.
Number of Implants
While we can place a single implant for the replacement of a single tooth, some restorations require more implants. You will likely need several posts to support larger restorations, such as bridges and dentures, which can increase your overall cost.
Our team can work with your insurance company to maximize your benefits and we also accept to help you manage out-of-pocket expenses.
Invest in Your Oral Health
Dental implants are the gold standard of tooth replacement as they protect the health of your jaw and restore both form and function to your smile. Since the post acts as an artificial tooth root, implants prevent future jawbone deterioration, minimizing the likelihood of more widespread tooth loss. This protection cannot be achieved with traditional restorations, meaning you will likely require other procedures in the future to treat issues caused by bone degeneration. Though you may need to replace an implant-supported restoration at some point, the implants themselves can last a lifetime with proper care.
Financing is Available
While the number of insurance companies offering coverage for implants is increasing, it is still likely that your entire treatment will not be covered by your insurance provider. Our team can work with your insurance company to maximize your benefits. We also offer several forms of financing and accept CareCredit® to help you manage out-of-pocket expenses.
