Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Dental implants are an excellent long-term solution for tooth loss. With proper care, your implants can last a lifetime, making them a smart investment in your oral health. Our baseline pricing is $2,222 for one post, but exactly how much dental implants cost will vary from patient to patient based on a variety of factors. At Parkway Dental in Albuquerque, NM, we believe in the importance of patient education and can explain all the factors that affect the final cost of your unique treatment plan. Dr. Michael Haight is a member of the International Congress of Oral  Implantologists (ICOI) and can place and restore your implants for fully streamlined treatment in our office. 

Our Base Costs for Dental Implants

When considering the price of dental implants, there are several aspects to keep in mind. A fully restored tooth with a dental implant includes three parts: the implant post, the connector screw or abutment, and the restoration. At Parkway Dental, we offer several types of implant-supported restorations, including crowns, bridges, and dentures. Our base pricing for dental implants begins at:

  • $2,222 per dental implant
  • $954 for the abutment
  • $1,552 for a single implant-supported crown

These prices reflect no coverage by dental insurance. Your final treatment cost can vary substantially based on your unique needs. During your initial consultation, you can discuss all of your options with Dr. Haight and he can give you a personalized estimate. 

Factors that Affect the Cost of Dental Implants

In the end, the final cost of your dental implants is determined by the extent of the treatment you require. Replacing a single tooth is generally less expensive than restoring a full arch of missing teeth. There are a variety of factors to consider when estimating your treatment cost.

Preliminary Procedures

You may require a preparatory treatment to improve your candidacy for dental implants. Preparing for dental implants may include a bone graft, sinus lift, or treatment for gum disease. Any preliminary procedures will add to the overall cost of your dental implants treatment. 

Number of Implant Posts

The amount of dental implants you need depends on how many teeth you have lost or need to have extracted. If you have lost two or more consecutive teeth, you may need an implant-supported bridge which typically requires one post per tooth. However, for an implant-supported denture, Dr. Haight can place as few as four to five implants for some patients. Others will need eight.  

Dental implants are a long-term investment in your oral health and your overall quality of life. 

Cost of Restoration

The type of restoration you need will also affect the final cost of your treatment. Dr. Haight can restore your implants with a crownbridge, or denture. Larger restorations tend to be more expensive than a single crown. In addition, choosing an advanced material can increase the final cost. 

Use of Sedation

Many patients opt to have their procedure performed under sedation for improved comfort. The type of sedation you choose can affect the final cost of your treatment.

Why Invest in Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a long-term investment in your oral health and your overall quality of life. While they are more expensive than other tooth replacement options, they offer unparalleled support, stability, comfort, and functionality. In addition, dental implants are the only type of restoration which actually protects the health of your jawbone, halting the tissue atrophy which develops after tooth loss. A strong jaw bone can prevent other serious health concerns from developing and maintain your facial structure.
