When you receive dental implants at Advanced Dental Care, you’re making an investment in a strong, beautiful, long-lasting smile. But like with any investment, you’ll need to figure out the cost of the process ahead of time so that you can plan accordingly. Call our practice today to schedule a consultation; after an examination and an exploration of the different options, we’ll make sure that you fully understand the cost of dental implants in Costa Mesa.
It’s difficult to give a general range for the price of a dental implant treatment since every case of tooth loss is different. When you’ve only lost one tooth, you only need to get one dental implant and a crown to replace it. On the other hand, multiple implant posts and full dentures could be required in more extensive cases of tooth loss. You can generally expect the number of implant posts and the type of prosthetic needed to have a major influence on the cost of your new smile. That’s why the initial consultation – where we examine your mouth and determine your specific needs – is such an important step.
When you’re making a payment plan for your implants, you need to remember that each stage of the procedure has its own separate cost. First, you may or may not need to undergo bone grafting or another procedure to ensure your mouth is at optimal health. Then there’s the surgery to place the implants in your mouth (which can be conveniently performed in-office by our oral surgeon Dr. Coppelson, meaning you won’t have to worry about paying for treatment from an unfamiliar specialist at a practice across town). During this procedure, you may have to factor in the cost of IV sedation or another service used to keep you relaxed and comfortable. The surgery isn’t the final step; once your mouth has healed, you’ll need to pay to have an abutment placed, and you’ll receive your new teeth during the final stage.
You might feel uneasy about paying for dental implants when you compare it to the initial cost of other procedures. However, bear in mind that getting dental implants affords you multiple benefits, including:
It should also be kept in mind that dental implants require very little in the way of special maintenance yet can last for the rest of your life. As a result, you may end up paying less for implants than you would for dentures that need to be relined or a dental bridge that will eventually be replaced.
Our office is in network with most major insurances (including MetLife, Aflac, Delta Dental, Liberty Dental, and many more), and we strongly urge all of our patients to review their benefits before committing to any kind of treatment. Some plans will pay for the implant surgery itself; other carriers won’t cover implants but may help mitigate the cost of restoration and other related procedures.
