At Dental Wellness of Westchase, the cost of dental implants varies from patient to patient, depending on individual health and dental needs. The treatment cost is comparable to replacing a single tooth with a three unit bridge but has many advantages over the bridge. When you meet with Dr. Amy Creech-Gionis or her Associates in our Tampa, FL, dental office, we will assess your oral health and tooth replacement needs and provide you with a detailed treatment estimate to outline the cost of dental implants, as well as the timeline. Your total expense will depend upon number of implants required, surgical fees, and a number of other related factors. Despite the investment required, most patients are very happy to proceed with dental implants, as they are a permanent solution for missing teeth that provides the most efficient and comfortable results.
Dental Implant Starting Cost
|Type of Treatment||Cost|
|Post and Placement of implant into jaw||$2300|
The numbers we provide are for a frame of reference. Your unique case and specific needs may include other preparatory procedures such as bone grafting or a sinus lift. Your total treatment cost will be determined at our office after a thorough examination.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants include several phases of treatment, multiple office visits, a full range of diagnostic and evaluative procedures, and several months of care from our doctors. There are a number of variables that will affect the overall cost.
The Number of Implants Needed
The cost of your implants treatment will depend heavily upon the type of restoration you require. A single implant and crown to replace one missing tooth will cost much less than implants for a full set of dentures, which may require as many as eight implants.
Our doctors are highly experienced at providing life-changing results to patients with personalized care that can eliminate issues and the need for revision procedures in the future.
For patients who have lived with missing teeth for several years, bone loss in the jaw may require bone grafting to take place either before or during implant procedure. In some cases a sinus augmentation surgery may be needed before a patient can be eligible for dental implants.
Sedation is recommended for implant procedures to make the visit easy and comfortable. The level of sedation or anesthesia required for your surgery will also add to the overall cost of dental implants. Some patients prefer intravenous (IV) sedation, while others receive a combination of local anesthesia and other forms of sedation.
The Expertise of Your Dentist
In our practice, we utilize 3D CVTC scanning technology to completely plan your implant placement ahead of time. A custom guide will be fabricated for you that allows the doctor to place the implant with precision and safety. Our doctors are highly experienced at providing life-changing results to patients with personalized care that can eliminate issues and the need for revision procedures in the future.
What to do to maintain your implant
A Worthwhile Investment
Not only are dental implants the most comfortable and natural-feeling form of tooth replacement, they are also the most permanent. In most cases, dental implants last a lifetime and prevent the changes to the jawbone that cause crowns, bridges, and dentures to require regular maintenance and replacement. When you add the continued cost of traditional tooth replacement options over the course of many years, the upfront cost of dental implants can actually be less expensive than traditional options.
