The cost of dental implants depends on the location where they are being done and the condition of the jaw bone below the teeth. When damage or loss of structure to the jaw bones is extensive then oral & maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Landon D. McLain MD, DMD, FACS will first carry out bone grafting before setting up the implant. The procedure is extensive and costly but the result of this surgery is worthwhile and necessary to allow implant placement.
The cost of dental implants depends on the following factors:
- Location and hospital where the treatment is being done
- Type of implant placed
- Type of prosthetic abutment and crowns required
- Additional procedures like bone grafting or installation
- Anesthesia requirements
