Why are Dental Implants expensive?

Have you been told that the cost of dental implants is too high?

Or perhaps you are facing the daunting prospect of needing to replace one or more missing teeth but feel like getting an implant isn’t feasible due to the cost.

Whatever your situation may be, it’s important to understand the costs of dental implants and why they are expensive, as it is often a considerable investment in both time and money.

In this blog post, we will explore exactly why they tend to have higher costs than other tooth replacement options, what affects their price and if there are ways for you to get affordable dental implants.

What are dental implants?

If you have been considering dental implants in Reading, it is important to understand what you are investing in. Dental implants are artificial replacements for lost or damaged teeth.

Highly trained dentists use advanced implant systems that are researched for many years with a guarantee, so they can be a cost-effective and lasting solution to tooth loss that can last for many years. While they may seem expensive at the outset, this investment can truly benefit your overall in the long term – not to mention your confidence and health.

Cost of an implant versus the cost of a bridge

When making a decision about your dental health care, it can be very overwhelming to consider the various factors like cost and longevity that come into play. It is important to start by speaking with a trusted dentist or periodontist in order to determine which dental solution best meets your needs. Some people opt for a bridge, while others prefer to pursue a dental implant, depending on their individual financial situation as well as their longer-term goals.

In general, the cost of an implant today may outweigh the cost of going through with a bridge, but over time, implants require far less maintenance than bridges do – and you do not need replacements – making them the more cost-effective solution in the long run. As always, seek out advice from our Reading dentists here at Gipsy Lane ahead of making any decisions and remember: your teeth are worth investing in!

The costs involved in Implant surgery

Dental implants can be a life-changing investment in your oral health and quality of life, all patients say that they wished that they had had an Implant years ago. but it’s important to consider all of the factors that come into play when pricing out this significant dental procedure.

  1. Location is often a determining factor of cost, as implant dentists in some parts of the country, like Central London, tend to charge more than those elsewhere due to the overheads.
  1. The type of implant system used is a cost factor and can cost 30% of the fee. Many cheaper systems are available, but would you want a cheap implant in your mouth with no guarantee or warranty?
  2. The placement complexity can also affect cost; for example, an implant may require bone grafting to properly place it in the correct position, which can further increase the price.
  3. It’s even important to consider the dentist’s cost of his extensive training and ongoing continuing education in speciality procedures such as these and the dentist’s speciality insurance and indemnity, which can be as much as £13,000 per year.
