Dental Implant Cost Will Depend on Your Customized Treatment
There are several factors that can affect dental implant cost at our Manhattan, NY, practice. These include preparatory treatments, the type of sedation used, and the number of implants you receive. Dr. Greg R. Diamond or Dr. Mark Schlesinger can explain the specific procedures you may need during a consultation. Then your periodontist can provide an estimated cost, based on your unique treatment plan. Dental implants can provide significant benefits. This is especially true when you visit the Diamond Schlesinger Group. Our team uses advanced methods and technology to achieve beautiful, long-lasting results.
Factors Affecting Cost
Dental implant treatment is different for each patient, and we carefully customize your procedure to meet your needs. Therefore, cost can vary considerably from patient to patient. When calculating the cost of your treatment, your periodontist considers several different factors:
- If you have lost bone volume, you may require certain preparatory procedures. Bone grafting, sinus lifts, and other regenerative treatments can replace lost tissue and provide support for the implant posts.
- In some cases, you may have prior conditions that we must treat before implant surgery. For example, we may need to perform root canal therapy or extract a damaged tooth.
- All implant surgery takes place under sedation. However, we offer several types of sedation, and the method you select will affect the cost of your care.
- The number of teeth you are missing is a major consideration, since implants are priced separately. Additionally, if you are missing a large number of teeth, you will require a more extensive restoration. Bridges and dentures, for example, can cost more than individual crowns.
The Benefits of Restorative Care
Missing teeth can dramatically affect your oral health and quality of life, and lead to a need for costly dental care in the future. They can impact your appearance, making you self-conscious about smiling. They can also impair your dental function. With missing teeth, you may not be able to speak clearly, bite effectively, or enjoy your favorite foods. In addition, your other teeth may move out of alignment, drifting to fill in the gap in your smile. Missing teeth may also lead to jawbone recession. Our periodontists can help prevent these problems with a suitable implant-supported restoration.

Implants often require an out-of-pocket expense, but many patients feel the benefits they provide justify the cost. Unlike removable restorations, your implant-supported prosthetic will not slip or affect your ability to eat your favorite foods. It also looks more realistic than other restorations. Most important of all, implants protect the health of your jaw. Replacing your dental roots, the metal posts stimulate new bone growth. This prevents jaw recession and further tooth loss.
