The initial costs of dental implants are often on par with those of a tooth-supported fixed bridge, but greater than the upfront costs of removable dentures.
If maintained appropriately, dental implants can last a significant period of time whilst carrying a low risk of complications.
Even with continued implant maintenance and repairs, the long term cost can still be significantly less.
There are many factors relating to the cost of dental implants. Being aware of these factors often puts dental implant costs into perspective.
The cost of implant fixtures can vary depending on the quality, country of manufacture and scientific data backing the product.
Modern technology comes at a cost. Practices with more technologically advanced equipment will often have higher fees to enable them to deliver the best treatment modalities available.
The skill level and experience of the support staff, particularly the clinical assistants, also plays a role in determining the cost of dental implant treatment. Like dentists, clinical nurses need to be trained for dental implant procedures. Consequently, the labour costs are higher than those for general dental treatment.
As with most prosthodontic procedures, the dental technician and ceramist plays an important role in the final result of your implants as they physically fabricate the restorations / crowns. They are often underestimated as they work “behind the scenes”. Having an experienced dental technician consequently comes at a higher cost.
Careful consideration needs to be made when determining where to have your dental implant treatment. There should be very little or no compromise in terms of the quality of the materials used. Laboratory fees can vary significantly depending on where the restoration is made and the materials that are used.
