Learn More About the Cost of Dental Implants
If you are missing teeth, dental implants can restore your oral function, appearance, and self-confidence in your smile. These revolutionary titanium posts are surgically inserted in the jaw, where they provide secure support for prostheses, like dental crowns and dentures. Dental implants are a great investment in your quality of life, and with proper care, can last a lifetime. At Southern Dental Implant Center, Dr. Jason Collier can help guide you throughout the entire dental implant process, from your initial candidacy evaluation to the creation and placement of your restoration.

Treatment Cost & Considerations
Because the dental implant procedure is individually-tailored, total treatment cost varies from patient to patient. The cost of your implant surgery will largely depend on the number of implants you receive. Dental implants create a foundation that can support one, several, or an entire dental arch of false teeth. A single crown restoration, for example, will require just a single dental implant. And for patients who are receiving an implant-supported bridge or dentures, a few strategically-placed implants are usually sufficient to support a larger prostheses.
The type of restoration you receive will also have a significant affect on your total cost of treatment. An implant-supported denture, for example, will be more costly than an individual crown. Restorations can be made from a range of high-quality materials, and our team can also help you determine which types are the most cost effective for your budget.
To ensure successful implantation, your jaw must be strong and large enough to support your implants. If you are in need of bone grafting or a sinus lift before your implant surgery, this will increase the total cost of your treatment. Bone grafting strengthens the jaw bone so it can better support implants, and a sinus lift creates room for implants in the upper jaw. Our experienced dentists can easily determine whether you will require either of these surgeries before you are considered a good candidate for implants.
Investing in Your Confidence
Dental implants can dramatically improve your oral function. With dental implants, your prostheses will feel exceptionally secure, so you can eat, speak, and laugh without worrying about your false teeth slipping out. We use advanced technology and a precise analysis of your jaw to map your implants' placement, ensuring their security and longevity.
In addition to restoring your bite, dental implants are also beneficial to your jaw bone health. When teeth fall out or are extracted, the surrounding bone cells begin to degenerate because of a lack of stimulation. Dental implants mimic the stimulation your roots once provided, so your jaw will maintain its density and strength. In addition to preserving your overall oral health, maintaining a healthy jaw can guard against the sunken cheeks and wrinkles that can occur as a result of tooth loss.
