The Finest Dental Implants in York & Hellam, PA
At the Center for Dental Excellence, we see many patients who are missing one or more teeth and would like to take restorative measures to revitalize their smiles. Dental implants are the best treatment option available to address the functional and aesthetic concerns that result from missing teeth. Dental implants have many advantages over other restorative options. They are the only treatment for missing teeth that can protect against future bone loss because they are placed directly into the jawbone. They also offer greater stability than bridges or dentures because they fuse with the surrounding bone. Dental implants are also incredibly durable and, with proper care, can last for decades.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
The cost of dental implants in Pennsylvania will vary depending on a number of factors discussed below. In general, a single tooth implant will cost between $1,500 and $2,500, with the additional price of the abutment and crown placement bringing the total dental implant cost to approximately $3,500-$4,000. However, it is important to remember that the price can change significantly depending on your individual needs. For a personal price estimate, please schedule a consultation with the talented implant specialists at the Center for Dental Excellence.
Factors Affecting The Cost Of Dental Implants
The total cost of your dental implants will be influenced by many factors. Many patients will require preparatory work before we can begin the implant process:
- Periodontal Treatments – Before we can begin planning for your dental implant placement, we must make sure that your gums are healthy. Treatment for periodontal disease can include deep cleanings (scaling and root planing), medications, or more extensive surgical procedures.
- Bone Grafting – When tooth loss occurs, patients frequently experience a loss of bone density and mass in the jaw. Dental implants need adequate underlying tissue to support the new restoration, so patients will often need a bone graft to build up healthy bone.
- Sinus Lift – Patients who need implants in the back upper portion of their jaws often need to have a sinus lift performed to create enough thick, dense bone to support the implant. The maxillary sinus typically does not have enough tissue to create a strong foundation for the implant.
In addition to these prerequisite procedures, the number of implants being placed will directly affect the total treatment cost. A single implant can support a dental crown, and multiple strategically placed implants can support a bridge or dentures. The type of restoration you require and the materials they are crafted from will also influence the cost of your procedure. Our practice prefers to use all-porcelain restorations since they offer an incredibly lifelike appearance. All-porcelain crowns, bridges, and dentures‘ high translucency mimic the way that natural teeth reflect light. Finally, the type of sedation or anesthesia you choose to receive will affect the cost of your surgery.
