Dental Implants Cost

Dental implants from Smiles for Life Dental Care can be life-changing, but you may be concerned about the cost.

Many variables affect dental implant costs, but our offices serving Harrisonburg and Staunton, VA, offer affordable financing options.

Before you decide to get implants, here's everything you need to know about what you're paying for — and how you can pay for it.

Smiles for Life Dental Care has offices in Bridgewater, VA, and Staunton, VA. We strive to make the dental implant procedure more accessible for patients throughout the Harrisonburg and Staunton area.

Restoring Your Smile is Worth the Cost

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), the average cost of a dental implant in the United States is between $3,000 and $4,500. Many variables will affect your overall cost.

Number of Implants

The number of implants needed to restore a smile varies from patient to patient. A person missing just one tooth will pay less than a person who needs to replace an entire arch of teeth.

Type of Restoration

Dental implants have abutments that can support restorations to fill the gaps in your smile and restore functionality to your mouth. Our practice offers implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures that are indistinguishable from natural teeth. Crowns cost less than bridges and dentures, but any restoration will add to your overall cost. Our dentists can attach your implant-supported restoration to your abutment without having to refer you elsewhere!

Preliminary Surgery

Before dental implant placement can occur, a patient must be examined to determine if their mouth is healthy enough to support the implant. Gum disease, tooth decay, and bone density problems must all be addressed before your surgeon can place your implants. We can perform bone grafting, tooth extraction, and other preparatory procedures for implant patients.

Surgeon Experience

The more experienced your oral surgeon, the more expensive your implant placement might be. Our dentists serving the communities of Harrisonburg, and Staunton, VA, are highly trained in implant dentistry and can perform a safe procedure.

Additional costs may include surgeon fees, fees for sedation dentistry techniques, and the cost of prescription medications for patient care and recovery.

Making Dental Implants Affordable

Traditional implants and All-on-4® dental implants are not covered by dental insurance. Still, many patients claim they're a worthwhile investment because they can prevent serious oral health problems like jawbone atrophy. Dental implants can last a lifetime when cared for properly.

We offer several financing options to our patients throughout Harrisonburg and Staunton to make this procedure more affordable, including:

  • CareCredit®
  • Compassionate Finance™
  • LendingClub®

Why Dental Implants?

Our dentists recommend dental implants and implant-supported crowns, bridges, or dentures after tooth loss because they're the next best thing to a natural tooth. The implant post fuses with your jawbone and becomes part of your anatomy, stimulating your jawbone and holding a restoration firmly in place.

This advanced technique in dentistry can improve your overall oral health, prevent serious dental problems, lead to a boost in confidence, and improve your quality of life.
