Looking into how much dental implants cost and getting an easy answer can be frustrating. But as we explain in this post from Staten Island Dental Care, there is a reason for that.
It can be confusing to research the cost of getting a dental implant and finding nothing solid on the web. But there are reasons why most dental practice websites don’t publish the cost of dental implants.
1. The Math Might Come Out Higher Than it Should
The number of teeth being replaced may be more than the number of implants needed to cover that section of the mouth. Tooth implant dentists want to offer accurate pricing rather than scare you away with higher estimates. It takes an easy consultation to review dental history, analyze needs and design a treatment plan. This could mean a more efficient surgery with fewer implants.
2. There Might Be Something Better For Your Mouth
While dental implants really are the state of the art in tooth replacement, much better than a bridge or denture, sometimes the technique won’t be what you thought it was going to be, or maybe you aren’t a good candidate for the treatment.
3. Supply Costs and Lab Costs Change
A ballpark number might be possible to post on the Internet but the changing cost of supplies and lab fees make it impossible to guarantee a specific price for full mouth dental implants. Dentists who offer implants can accurately calculate dental implant surgery rates based on current prices when you come in for a consultation.
