Dental implants provide unrivaled support for dental crowns and restorations. There are a variety of factors that affect dental implant cost including whether preparatory procedures are necessary as well as the number of implants needed. At Dr. Yamen Akhras’ Orland Park, IL, practice, the cost of dental implants can start at $2,500 per tooth, which includes an implant, abutment, and crown. Because we have the ability to perform every stage of your dental implants treatment at Premier Dental & Implant Center, you can save time and money by not having to deal with the hassle of referrals and the expense of costly specialists. 

What Affects the Cost of Your Implants?

pie chart of implant costThe cost of dental implants treatment differs from patient to patient, depending on the needs of each. There are many factors that can impact your overall price, including the type of restoration you receive and how many preparatory procedures you require. 

Current Oral Health

It is important that patients receiving dental implants are in excellent oral health before undergoing dental implant placement. Depending on your situation, you may require treatments to address oral health concerns such as gum disease or decay. At Premier Dental & Implant Center, we offer root canal therapy and other procedures to provide comprehensive care for our patients. 

Preparatory Procedures

During your initial consultation, Dr. Akhras will review x-rays and scans to check the health and density of your jawbone tissue. If Dr. Akhras finds that you have experienced significant bone loss, you may require a preparatory procedure, such as a bone graft or sinus lift. These procedures significantly improve the probability of successful implant integration; however, they do carry their own costs. 

Extent of Work

One of the factors that will most significantly affect the price of your treatment is the extent of work required. Depending on how many teeth you are replacing and the size of your restoration, you may need multiple implants, which will increase your bottom line. In addition, if you receive a larger restoration such as a customized denture or choose a more advanced material, your overall expense will increase.

Sedation Method

While dental implants can be placed using only local anesthetic, we want to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible during any surgical procedures. As a result, we offer sedation dentistry at Premier Dental & Implant Center. Intravenous (IV) sedation can make all oral surgeries more comfortable, but it will also increase the cost of your procedure.

Education and Training

Another factor that increases the cost of treatment is the quality of the surgeon’s experience and education. Inexperienced doctors may offer lower prices in order to attract patients; however, inexperience can result in less successful treatment and the need for expensive revision procedures. Dr. Akhras has extensive training in dental implant placement from the renowned Misch Institute and emphasizes continued education. He provides the most trusted, up-to-date dental techniques and advanced technologies to ensure the highest level of care for his patients. 

Invest in Your Future Health

The benefits of dental implants are substantial. This treatment provides unparalleled support for dental restorations and prevents jawbone degeneration that accompanies tooth loss. Implants are also durable and can last a lifetime with proper care. By choosing an implant-supported restoration, you are investing in your future health and well-being as well as protecting the integrity of your smile. 

High-Quality Dental Care

While other practices may advertise lower prices, they are often marketing gimmicks that hide extra costs. At Premier Dental & Implant Center, we provide high-quality dental implant treatment plans.  We believe that everyone should have access to the dental procedures they need, so we accept CareCredit® and work hard to help you manage any out-of-pocket costs.
