Dental Implant Prices and Payment Options
By Dr. David Wyse on August 19, 2013
Thanks to implant dentistry, people who are missing one or more of their natural teeth have a second chance at a healthy, functional, aesthetically pleasing smile. Dental implants are small but extraordinarily strong titanium posts that are surgically implanted in the jaw to replicate the root of a missing tooth. These posts actually fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration; once this fusion has occurred, dental implants provide unrivaled support for custom-crafted restorations such as dental crowns, bridges, and even full sets of dentures. Truly, implant-supported restorations are the next best thing to having your own strong and healthy natural teeth.
If you are looking for a cosmetic dentist capable of providing you with natural-looking restorations but who can also perform the surgical placement of dental implants, we invite you to visit Chrisman & Wyse Cosmetic & General Dentistry. Having every stage of implant dentistry performed under a single roof will help to save you time and money. During your initial consultation at our practice in Bloomington, dental implant costs will be discussed in great detail so that you can make the most informed and confident decisions possible.

Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a substantial investment, to be sure. While dental implants do represent the most expensive method of replacing missing teeth, they also offer the longest-lasting, most durable and stable support for crowns, bridges, and dentures. They also help to prevent the degradation to the gums and jawbone that occurs when teeth are lost. Ultimately, dental implants are a highly cost-effective solution as they can last for decades, if not a lifetime, while allowing patients to avoid extensive oral health treatments related to the damage caused by missing teeth.
The exact cost of your dental implants depends on many factors, including:
- The number of implants you require
- The type of restoration (e.g., a crown, several crowns, a bridge, or a set of dentures) you require
- Whether you need to undergo a bone grafting procedure in order to build up the jaw prior to implant placement
- Whether you need to undergo periodontal treatments to treat gum disease prior to implant placement
Other costs associated with implant dentistry include our dentists’ fees and the cost of anesthesia. We will be up front with you about the various costs related to your treatment before your decide to undergo implant dentistry.
During your initial consultation, we will also discuss your payment options. You may be surprised to learn how affordable dental implants can be. Ultimately, dental implants are unsurpassed in the many oral health, aesthetic, and functional benefits they offer, and we will work with you to make your care as affordable as possible considering your budget.
