With any surgical procedure, one concern for many patients is the cost of dental implants. Patients typically want to ensure that the treatment itself is worth its value. We are happy to tell our patients that dental implants are usually the best investment that you can make when it comes to restoring missing teeth.
The cost associated with the procedure itself is dependent on several factors that will be determined before agreeing to treatment. Our oral surgeons will scrutinize each unique situation, taking into consideration the patient’s health history, the number of missing teeth, the need for extractions or bone grafting, and the relationship of adjacent structures in the mouth such as the nerves and sinuses. Next, a custom treatment plan will be tailored to achieve optimal results. While some advertisements may boast “bargain” dental implants, it is important to understand that the only way to get an accurate cost assessment is through a thorough consultation with a trained oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
At Columbia Basin Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, the patient’s desired outcome is our top priority. We make every effort to work hand in hand with our patients to ensure we fully understand their restorative goals and develop a plan that best suits these needs.
Dental Implant Value
Dental implants are the most cost-effective treatment option for replacing missing teeth. Investing in dental implants can provide patients with more than a new smile—they can provide real value to one’s life and oral health. Dental implants present an appealing and valuable investment because:
- They stimulate the jaw bone and help maintain the alignment and function of healthy nature teeth, avoiding the additional costs associated with future oral health problems, orthodontic work, or bone grafting.
- They last a lifetime if cared for properly. A well-placed and cared for dental implant does not require significant adjustment or replacement, characteristics typically associated with removable prostheses.
- They improve quality of life dramatically, which is extremely valuable for your overall well-being.
At Columbia Basin Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to restore their smile and oral function. We accept a variety dental and medical insurance plans, and we also have financing options available—including CareCredit—to make payment as simple and convenient as possible.
