Dental Implants Start at $2,909
At our dental office in Cedar City, UT, you can receive one dental implant, one abutment, and one custom dental crown for as low as $2,909. However, if you have more than one missing tooth, jawbone recession, or dental phobia that calls for sedation during surgery, the overall cost of your treatment will likely be higher.
Dental Implants Cost Factors
Number of Missing Teeth
The starting cost of replacing one tooth with an implant, abutment, and crown is $2,909. However, if you have lost several natural teeth, you will require more implants and larger restorations, which will increase the overall cost of your dental treatment. It's important to understand that if you are missing many teeth, you won't need an implant to replace each missing tooth. Bridges require at least two implants, while full dentures can require six to eight implants per dental arch.
Type of Implants
If you qualify for mini dental implants, your procedure may be more affordable than if you receive traditional implants. Because mini implant surgery is less extensive and requires fewer materials, the surgical costs are generally lower.
Condition of Your Smile
If you have deficient bone tissue because you have struggled with missing teeth for a long time, you may need a bone graft or sinus lift to restore lost bone tissue and provide a stable foundation for your dental implants. Both of these preparatory dental procedures can add to the overall cost of your treatment in Cedar City, UT.
Use of Sedation
Although local anesthesia alone can reduce physical discomfort during your dental implant surgery, additional sedation options are available for patients who are especially nervous about dentistry or are undergoing a complex procedure. We offer nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and intravenous (IV) sedation. While nitrous oxide is an inexpensive option, oral medication and IV sedation will increase the cost of your dental treatment.
Type of Restoration
Single-tooth restorations such as dental crowns are less expensive, while larger restorations such as dental bridges and dentures cost more.
Financing Your Treatment
Because dental implants are considered an elective cosmetic treatment for tooth replacement, they are not covered by basic dental insurance. However, because our team believes that every patient should have access to the life-changing benefits of dental implants, we offer financing through CareCredit®. CareCredit offers low-interest payment plans with flexible terms that make this treatment affordable on most budgets.
The Benefits Far Outweigh the Costs
Dental implants are widely considered the gold standard in tooth replacement because they offer unparalleled benefits compared to conventional bridges or traditional dentures. Although dental implants have a higher average cost than other restorative methods, they offer benefits such as:
- Jawbone support that prevents bone recession
- A more secure fit than traditional dentures - with no denture adhesive required!
- Dentures that function as effectively as natural teeth
Meanwhile, with proper care, your implants can very likely last the rest of your life.
"I would recommend this office to anyone! Friendly and knowledgeable staff and they were quick to get me even as a first time patient. Dr. Tavoian was great to explain everything he was doing and to outline my options with pricing before he started the work so that I knew exactly what to expect. The procedure went well. I'll definitely be a returning patient for other dental work in the future." Tennile Manwaring, 5-Star Review
