Key factors that affect the cost of dental implants

Dental implants are considered the gold standard in tooth replacement by both dentists and patients alike. At Knoxville Smiles at Malone & Costa Dentistry in Knoxville, Tennessee, we know that cost is an important factor when deciding on the best tooth replacement option for your specific situation. Read on to learn more about the variables that can affect the cost of dental implants. 

Cost of Dental Implants in Knoxville Area

The number of implants you are getting

Dental implants can be used to replace just one tooth, an entire dental arch, and everything in between. An implant for a single tooth will cost less than what is required to replace multiple teeth. However, advances in dentistry and surgical planning have enabled people to replace a full arch of teeth with as few as four dental implants, so implants are often within reach for patients who have lost all of their teeth.

Bone density

Implant success is dependent on the density and volume of underlying bone for the implant to fuse with. While patients with insufficient jawbone should not rule out dental implants, they may require additional preparatory treatments such as bone grafting prior to implant placement.

Location of the teeth being replaced

Drs. Stephen Malone and Michael Costa provide customized care that is tailored to your mouth. Different teeth will require different sizes and placement of implants to achieve the best results, particularly the front teeth since they are visible within your smile.

Whether you need extractions 

Before implant placement, you may need one or more teeth extracted if they have been severely compromised. This procedure is typically straightforward but usually requires time for healing prior to implant placement.
