Dental implants can significantly enhance your confidence and quality of life. As with any surgery dental
implants are an investment, but patients often find that implants offer greater value than other dental
restorations. In many cases, the cost of an implant will be about the same as other treatment options, such
as replacing a missing tooth with a dental bridge or restoring a tooth that will require a root canal along
with other procedures such as surgical crown lengthening. Not only that, but dental implants have
numerous advantages over traditional restorations.
More complex cases require significant training and expertise on the part of your doctor. Naturally, the
cost of treatment will increase relative to the complexity of your case. Your doctor must take numerous
variables into account when designing your treatment plan, which generally proceeds in phases over the
course of several months. For these reasons, large dental implant cases can be a significant investment.
After a thorough examination and evaluation, you doctor will recommend a personalized treatment plan
and quote a fee.
The cost of implants depends on:
- The number of teeth being replaced and their location in the mouth
- The number of implants required to support the replacement teeth
- Additional procedures needed, such as bone grafting or sinus lifts
- The type of anesthesia used
Most insurance companies do not pay for implants, although some will cover the restoration portion of the
procedure. At the Watkin Osorio Boston Dental Implant Center, we understand that sometimes it is not
convenient or feasible to pay the entire balance up front. Therefore, we are pleased to offer 24 month no
interest financing. Contact us for details.
Often, the decision to choose implants comes when one weighs the cost of treatment against the long-term
benefits of having teeth that are secure, attractive and functional.
