Cost of Dental Implants
Dental Implants are Expensive...
There has, in my opinion, been a tendency for many practitioners to overcharge for dental implant procedures. If you are interested in my commentary about excessive fees in this field of dentistry, Click Here for information about excessive Fees. . .
There are two major costs involved in dental implant treatment. The first is the implant itself and the second is the restoration (tooth or teeth) that is anchored by the implant. In the United States, these two procedures are usually done by two seperate dentists thus increasing the cost to the patient substantially. Fees for these services vary considerably. I have seen fees for a single implant that range from $500.00 to $6,000.00. I think that an average fee for the placement of each is between $1500.00 and $2500.00.
In my practice, the fee per implant is $1850.00, however, if you contract to have me do all of the work associated with that implant or implants, then I may waive or modifythat fee. This is the advantage that I pass on to the patients in savings because I can do both procedures for them in one office.
I would charge for the implant if I were not doing the restorative work. Right now, I am offering to place implants to support an existing lower denture at a fee of $999.00 complete. For that fee, I will place implants in your lower jaw and attach your existing denture to these implants for excellent stability and retention of the denture. To see all of my fees, you can view my fee schedule. Remember that out of state patients will get great incentives to fly to Boynton Beach for their dental treatment.
Restorations on implants vary to a much greater degree and an individual can pay as much as several thousand dollars for a single restoration up to over $80,000.00 for a complete rehabilitation involving dental implants. Fortunately, there are implant restorations available for most people that are in the realistic range and allow many more people today to find a suitable solution to replacing missing teeth. You have to make sure that the dentist that you choose is familiar with all of the restorative options to suit your needs and that he can provide the treatment at a fee that you can live with.
Fees for dental implants are often inflated. Many patients save on their dental implant treatment when they become patients of Dr. Davidoff in Florida!
