UNDERSTANDING THE COSTS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
If you are considering dental implants, one of
your main concerns is probably the cost. You
might be wondering why dental implants are more
expensive than other tooth replacement options
and how you can afford them. Lets take a look at
the factors that affect the costs of dental
implants.
FACTORS THAT AFFECT THE COST OF DENTAL
IMPLANTS There are a number of factors that will
affect the overall cost of your dental implants.
These include Number of implants - The more
implants you need the greater the
cost. Pre-surgery tests - You may require special
scans or screenings before you can get a dental
implant. These tests will allow your dentist to
make sure the implant will be in perfect
alignment with your jaw and bite. Bone grafts -
For a dental implant to be successful, as well as
long lasting, there needs to be sufficient bone
mass in the jaw for implantation.A patient
looking for dental implants who has suffered from
bone loss can have an additional procedure to
increase bone mass. This is called a bone
graft. Materials - Most dental surgeons use
titanium implants. Because titanium is difficult
to mine, its expensive.So why do most dental
surgeons choose titanium? Titanium implants offer
a low risk of rejection or infection and are
incredibly long lasting - they can literally last
for decades. Titanium merges and fuses with your
natural bone in a process known as
osseointegration. This process helps ensure the
success of the implant.Some dentists offer
implants made of a zircon-based material, which
is cheaper, but may not be as long lasting or as
successful as titanium implants. Experience of
your surgeon- Dental implant surgery is a
specialist area of dentistry. To be able to
perform implant surgery your dentist will have
completedextensive training over the course of
many years. This training isnt cheap and is a
factor in why implants are more costly than their
alternatives. When deciding to get dental
implants, you are choosing to engage the services
of a highly skilled professional and incur the
costs associated with that. Time required for
treatment-Fitting dental implants takes multiple
visits over several months, which of course is
more costly than procedures that take only one
visit. Your dentist will be spending a lot of
time on making sure your dental implant is the
best it can be and will last for years to
come. Equipment costs- Dental implant surgery
requires precision to be effective. To ensure
success,state-of-the-art equipment is often used.
This may include 3D imaging machines, laser
guides and computer aided design (CAD). These
technologies help with determining the health of
your jawbone, plotting the position of the
implant prior to surgery and building a mock-up
of your mouth so your dental implants look as
natural as possible.

PAYING FOR YOUR DENTAL IMPLANTS Most people do
not qualify for dental implants on the NHS.
However, there are situations where implants may
be covered, such as if your teeth have been lost
to oral cancer or facial trauma. Find out more
about what treatments are covered on the NHS. If
you have health insurance with dental cover or a
dental plan, you may be able to claim all, or at
least a portion of the costs of your implants.
Often dental insurance will only cover the cost
of an implant if you have lost the tooth in an
accident or a because of medical condition. If
you want to have implants for cosmetic reasons
only, the cost will normally not be covered by
your insurance.
