Dental Implant Costs

Missing teeth can cost you your abilities to smile with confidence, chew, bite, and speak properly, and maintain jawbone health.

For $3,000 to $4,500 on average per tooth, dental implants placed by Cheryl L. Cushman, DDS, in Lithia Springs, GA, can complete your smile.

However, many factors may affect the cost of the dental implant treatment you receive at Atlanta West Periodontics & Dental Implants.

5 Factors That Can Affect Your Dental Implant Cost

No two implant procedures are the same; therefore, no two price tags for implant placement are identical. Dr. Cushman will provide her Lithia Springs, Douglasville, and Mableton patients with a customized cost estimate during a dental care consultation at our warm and welcoming practice. Cost factors can include:
number one

Number of Implants

A dental crown will require only one implant, while a dental bridge can require two or more. A full arch of dentures may need four or more. The more implants and restorations needed, the more you can expect your dental treatment to cost.

number two

Type of Implant

The price of some implants may only include the titanium post that is surgically anchored into your jawbone. Meaning, the abutment, or connector used to attach crowns, bridges, and dentures to the posts, may cost extra.

number three

Preparatory Procedures

Many patients require tooth extractions, gum disease treatment, or a bone graft or sinus lift before receiving dental implants. These dentistry procedures can help your implant results be as effective as possible.

number four

Restoration Materials

The kind of implant-supported crown, bridge, or dentures you choose can affect your final cost. An ultra-lifelike material like zirconia may cost more, but it can save you money due to its long-lasting strength and durability.
number five

Sedation During Surgery

Some patients only require local anesthesia. If you have a dental phobia or can't sit comfortably for long periods, Dr. Cushman offers safe, gentle sedation dentistry. This will add to your final cost but be worth it for your peace of mind.

Dr. Cushman Can Make Dental Implant Costs Affordable

  • No Expensive Specialists Needed
  • Dr. Cushman has over 30 years of dental surgery experience, performing every stage of dental implant treatment, from preparation to restoration, at our relaxing and comfortable Lithia Springs practice. This can save you money, as you won't need an expensive oral surgeon for implant placement.
  • Financing
  • Dental insurance rarely covers dental implant surgery, but it may cover a portion of your restorations. Dental insurance or not, Dr. Cushman wants all her patients to receive the best dentistry treatments possible. That's why we offer low-interest financing through CareCredit® and LendingClub® to make out-of-pocket fees more affordable.
  • Reduced Need for Future Implant Repairs
  • While other local dentists may advertise bargain rates to get you in their dental chairs, it is always possible they lack Dr. Cushman's credentials and use less advanced techniques and materials than she does. They may also use inferior off-brand implants and abutments in order to trim costs. Dr. Cushman's extensive training and use of top-quality materials can reduce the chances of costly revision surgeries.
