Dental Implant Cost in Seattle
As Washington’s most trusted periodontal practice, Pacific Northwest Periodontics is frequently contacted by patients interested in dental implants. One of the first questions these patients ask of our esteemed team — led by Dr. Dr. Darrin Rapoport and Dr. Ida Zarrabi — is “How much does a dental implant cost?” Although dental implants are more expensive than most other dental procedures, the healthy benefits and durability of an implant make it a worthwhile investment.
The Perils of Implant 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. At Pacific Northwest Periodontics in Seattle we offer high-quality dental implants that you’ll love.
The High Cost of Cheap Dental 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.
Our Implants Are An Investment
Pacific Northwest Periodontics is proud to offer only state-of-the-art equipment and supplies. If you are looking for the cheapest dental implants —in terms of both price and quality — you will not find that at our practice.
The advanced technology and implants we use are designed to stay in your mouth for decades — or in many cases a lifetime. Indeed, dental implants are more expensive than other tooth replacement options like a dental bridge, but those have a shorter lifespan and need to be replaced periodically. The money you spend on a quality dental implant will not be in vain.
Factors Affecting Dental 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
What Does The Cost Of A Dental Implant Goes Toward?
The total price of a dental implant includes:
- Your initial consultation and examination
- If necessary, the cost of extracting a tooth or grafting bone to strengthen the jawbone
- The surgical procedure that inserts and secures a titanium post into the jawbone
- Anesthesia to numb the pain during this surgery
- Placing an abutment on the implant to hold the crown
- The cost of a durable, attractive crown that looks like a real tooth in your mouth
- The expertise of our world-class periodontists who have decades of collective success providing patients with dental implants.
