Dr. Randolph Snyder’s practice works with several dental insurance types and offers various payment options for his patients. However, many factors can influence your dental implant cost. The list below provides an overview of some common circumstances that can affect the cost of a dental implant procedure.
Number of Teeth. Your costs will increase for every additional tooth that needs an implant replacement. Dr. Snyder must assess each tooth individually and evaluate the bone density in addition to determining that every implant is placed to maximize the chances of their successful integration with the jaw bone.
Bone Loss and Sinus Lifts. Dental implants require a sufficient amount of bone in order for the implant to be placed. As a result, patients who have experienced significant bone deterioration will likely require a bone grafting procedure prior to the placement of their implants. Similarly, if Dr. Snyder determines that your sinus floor is too close to the intended implant placement destination, he may recommend a sinus lift before receiving your implants. Both the bone grafting and sinus lift procedures will be billed separately, enhancing your overall cost.
- Periodontal Disease. Your chances of successful implant integration will increase significantly if your mouth is free of disease, infection, and bacteria. As a result, Dr. Snyder will likely suggest some kind of treatment to eradicate the infection and restore your oral health prior to the implant procedure. Depending on the severity of your periodontal disease, Dr. Snyder may be able to resolve the issue with a simple scaling and root planing treatment. More advanced cases may necessitate a treatment like laser gum surgery. These procedures will add to your overall treatment cost.
