Dental Implants Cost
Dental implants can restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile with comfort and confidence after tooth loss.
At Advanced Oral Surgery of Tampa, this treatment is personalized for each patient, and final costs can vary.
Our dentists serving Tampa, FL, explain what affects implant cost and how we can work with you to make this treatment fit your budget.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
Because dental implant treatment is highly individualized to meet the unique needs of each patient, it's difficult to provide one set price for care; however, we will always do everything we can to make treatment more affordable.
Drs. Jason Edwards and Thomas Backeris will be able to provide you with an accurate quote for your implants during your initial consultation.
What Affects Dental Implant Costs?
Number of Implants
We offer several options to replace missing teeth. Patients can receive an implant-supported crown to replace a single tooth, a bridge supported by two implants to replace several consecutive missing teeth, or an implant-supported denture supported by several implants to replace a full arch of natural teeth. We can even convert your traditional denture into an implant-supported denture. While receiving a greater number of implants will increase the average cost of treatment, you can expect a lifelike, long-lasting solution for your tooth loss.
Quality of Materials
Our dental implants and abutments are made of high-quality titanium, a durable material that becomes part of your anatomy after osseointegration. Titanium implants may be more expensive than other materials, but they are the gold standard in implant dentistry and offer greater stability and long-term success than other options. When cared for properly, your titanium implants can last a lifetime.
Most dental implant placement procedures are performed under local anesthesia; however, patients who need extra help relaxing during treatment may benefit from additional sedation. We offer oral conscious, and IV sedation to accommodate your specific needs. Every member of our dental team is trained to provide anesthesia. Though anything more than local anesthesia will add to the cost of your treatment, choosing sedation can increase your comfort while in our care.
Not every patient is ready to immediately receive dental implants after their initial consultation. Our advanced technology can help determine if you'll require a bone graft to strengthen your jaw, additional tooth extraction, or periodontal work to improve the health of your gums prior to treatment. Preparatory work will add to your final costs, but these treatments can provide a strong foundation for your implants, allowing them to last well into the future.
"If you need any oral surgery, this is the place to go" A 5-Star Review From a Real Implant Patient
"On my first visit for a dental implant, everything was explained to me thoroughly and with great detail. I knew what they’d do, how it would work, all the potential costs, everything was clear. I always felt important, never rushed; this team was there for me. Hands down, best experience ever." mwabell - 2021
Are Dental Implants Covered by Insurance?
Dental insurance plans won't cover titanium implant posts and abutments; however, it's likely that your plan will contribute to the cost of your implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture. We accept most dental insurance plans and offer financing options.
Are Dental Implants Really Worth the Investment?
Our answer for the vast majority of patients in the Tampa, FL, area with tooth loss is a resounding yes. Missing teeth can impact more than just the look of your smile—they can have serious consequences for your dental health, which may require even more costly dental procedures in the future. This additional work can actually end up costing more than treatment with implants.
Missing your natural tooth roots leads to jawbone atrophy. A weakened jawbone can cause wrinkling around the mouth, significant changes to your facial shape, and the shifting of your remaining teeth, among other issues. Dental implants gradually fuse to your jawbone and mimic natural tooth roots to keep your jaw healthy and functional. In fact, they are the only treatment that offers this benefit.
Making the investment in dental implants can completely transform your smile and self-image, while also saving you time and money you may have otherwise had to spend on other dental work later in life.
