There are many factors that affect the cost of dental implants. The first place to start is to have a thorough evaluation with Dr. Richard Goldin, an experienced periodontist that offers dental implants in Vienna, VA. He will determine if periodontal (gum) disease is present and discuss the best treatment plan options for your case.
If periodontal disease is present, it should be treated prior to placing an implant to improve the success of the implant. Dr. Goldin may recommend scaling and root planing, or other treatment if the disease is more advanced. Any periodontal disease treatment will be a separate cost from the implant.
The amount of bone loss that you have can affect the cost of having an implant placed. If there is insufficient bone to support an implant, a bone grafting procedure may be needed. Patients may have bone loss due to periodontal disease, ill-fitting appliances, or in areas where teeth have been missing for some time. Bone grafting would be a separate procedure and cost from the implant.
In some cases a sinus lift may be necessary prior to placing the implant, and would incur a separate charge. Any extractions that are needed will also be a separate procedure and additional cost.
The number of teeth that need to be replaced will affect the total cost of the implants. Dr. Goldin will evaluate the bone density to determine the optimal placement and number of implants required to replace your missing teeth.
There are many different treatment options available with dental implants, from single tooth replacement to implant supported dentures. Dr. Goldin will discuss the different treatment options to best serve your needs. Any periodontal disease treatment, sinus lift, or other treatments involved with a successful implant procedure will be explained when the treatment options are presented to you.
