How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Looking into how much dental implants cost and getting a straightforward answer can be frustrating. But there is a reason for that, and at Harris Dental in Phoenix, we’d like to explain it.

It can be confusing to research the cost of getting a dental implant and finding nothing solid on the web. There are good reasons why most dental sites don’t publish the cost of tooth 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 a simple consultation to review dental history, assess needs and create 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 procedure won’t be what you thought it was going to be, or maybe you aren’t a good candidate for the process.

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 an exact price for full mouth dental implants. Dentists who offer implants can correctly calculate dental implant surgery rates based on current prices when you come in for a consultation.

Nevertheless, dental implants remain the best way to replace a missing tooth, because they look and function like natural teeth. One implant can support one tooth, and several implants can support a set of dentures. At Harris Dental in Phoenix we also offer general dentistry. Call us for an appointment today.
