The Perils of Price Shopping
It seems a large number of dental professionals offer implants these days, often at a discounted or inexpensive rate. In reality, shopping around and going with the the best implant “deal” usually provides no deal at all. Receiving implants from a general practitioner or settling for the cheapest implants in town frequently leads to major problems for many patients, like improper placement, implant failure and broken or fractured implants.
The High Cost of Cheap Implants
Making the wrong choice in an attempt to go an inexpensive route may likely cost you more in the long-run. When it comes to your oral health, experience matters. As an implant specialist and member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Darrin Rapoport has placed more than 10,000 implants at a success rate of 98 percent, and maintains an extensive understanding of how to mitigate factors often leading to the demise of implants, including occlusion, untreated gum disease and systemic influences like diabetes.
Factors Affecting Implant Cost
Implants represent a new beginning, and are an investment in your smile and quality of health. For your convenience, we can discuss financing options once Dr. Rapoport determines your treatment plan. Total implant cost varies by each individual, and is affected by factors such as:
- Number of teeth to replace
- Need for extractions
- Type of implant procedure
- Type of implant restoration
- Need for bone stabilizing services
- Presence of active gum disease
