Factors The Affect Cost Of Dental Implants
Overview of the costs that affect dental implants and how same day dental implants are now available to patients in the UK.
By: dental implants academy
One of the first factors that can affect the cost of dental implants is the consultation fee. Some dental offices might charge you up to £50. Others can provide this service for free. Before the surgery, detailed planning is needed. CT scans are important for this and it is a must do part of the procedure. However, this technology is rather expensive and it will not be that cheap. If there is more than one implants used, the cost will be higher. You can replace one or more teeth even the whole set of teeth in one jaw, and therefore the cost range will be different.
If bone grafting is necessary before the procedure itself, this might add to the final cost of the whole dental implant surgery. The bone grafting is usually needed if the jaw bone is very thin and the implant can’t fit so the dentist needs to increase the bone volume. The bone grafts are natural or synthetic and are used in bone augmentation. Sometimes, larger amounts of bone are needed and those can be taken from the patient’s other parts of the body. You will be made aware if it's likely you'll need bone grafting during a CBCT scan. For a general guide to dental implant prices click here http://www.dentalimplantsacademy.co.uk/
Abutment used sometimes is made out of zirconium. These are angulated and more esthetic, but also much more expensive than the regular straight ones that are conventional. The artificial crown needs to be fitted on the implant after the procedure is finished. Porcelain crowns with metal are less expensive than procera crowns.
This procedure requires anesthesia. If you choose local anesthesia it is the less expensive choice, but for those who want to undergo general anesthesia the cost will be higher. This is something you have to discuss with your dentist. Click here to find out more about the dental implant procedure http://www.dentalimplantsacademy.co.uk/
Post operative follow up also adds up to the total bill, but this is necessary in order to make sure that the implant is osseointegrated and that the procedure went well. If any complications appear, you need to contact your dentist immediately. Since the osseointegration of the implant can last up to 6 months, the dentist might place you a temporary crown that will come with additional cost. These are necessary especially if you have front teeth missing since it would affect the patient’s appearance.
Even though dental implants are not that expensive, the procedure is somewhat invasive, it all pays in the end to you since you will have a good functioning teeth and beautiful smile. And the best thing is that people won’t be able to tell if you have an implant or not.
A new development this year in Dental Implant treatment is same day dental implants, available from the Dental Implants Academy founded by Dr. Julian Perry. These implants are made after a 3D scan of the mouth has been taken. Because they are built from scans they require less visits to the dentist and so the cost comes down.
