About Dental Implants Implant Procedure Implants vs. Dentures Single Missing Tooth Implant Dentures
For those considering dental implants for the restoration of missing teeth, one of the most frequently asked questions in a dental implant consultation with Dr. Vito Clarizio is about the dental implant cost. While Dr. Clarizio provides each patient with a detailed estimate, it is nearly impossible to give a general cost for dental implants, because they are such a versatile method that may be used in a number of techniques. Dental implant cost fluctuates according to the number of dental implants required as well as the method of placement, such as single implants, bridge support, implant supported dentures, or All-on-4, for example. Procedures that must be performed to prepare for a successful implant will also affect the dental implant cost.
Additional Procedures Affecting Dental Implant Cost in Whitestone, NY
- Bone Grafting: Dental implants require a sufficient amount of bone to successfully integrate. If you do not have adequate bone density, grafts may be required before you can undergo an implant procedure.
- Periodontal Disease Treatment: Periodontal disease negatively impacts the gum tissue, root, and bone, creating a hostile environment for teeth. Implants cannot be placed without first addressing your gum disease.
- Sinus Lift: Dr. Clarizio will determine, during your dental implant consultation, whether you need a sinus lift before the implants may be placed. This additional procedure will increase the overall dental implant cost.
- Extractions: Your own natural teeth must be absent at the site of a dental implant. If your teeth are still present, Dr. Clarizio will need to schedule an extraction.
The best way to obtain a detailed estimate of your dental implant cost is to schedule a dental implant consultation with Dr. Clarizio. After a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and bone density, as well as an evaluation of your medical and dental history, he can provide you with an accurate account of your expected dental implant cost.
