The cost of denture implants is very dependent on exactly what is needed before, during and after the denture implant procedure. For example, if you have been told previously that you didn’t have enough bone for dental implants then added to the procedure would be extensive bone grafting which in turn will make a difference in the cost of denture implants.
The cost of denture implants -what is the actual process?
Included in the cost of denture implants is a procedure where the implants usually are placed in the jawbone at the front of your mouth because there tends to be more bone in the front of the jaw than in the back and possibly either no need for bone grafting or very little need at all. This usually is the case even if teeth have been missing for some time. It is commonly known that once you lose teeth, you begin to lose bone in the area as well. The front jaw is also ideal because at the front there are very little nerves or other structures that could interfere with the placement of denture implants.
We appreciate that not only will the cost of denture implants be important but the time frame to complete the implants as well. This depends on many factors. The shortest time frame is about five months in the lower jaw and seven months in the upper jaw. However, the process can last 12 months or more, especially if you need bone grafting and other preliminary procedures. It is also most common that two surgeries are needed. The first one to actually place the implants in the jawbone and the second to expose the tops of the implants. Sometimes a one stage procedure is used. In this procedure, our dentist can place the implants and the supporting bar in one step.
It is worth noting that the cost for denture implants for retained dentures is exceptionally lower than that of traditional alternative options, it’s more affordable than ever if it’s a one-day treatment.
