When it comes to replacing missing teeth or fixing gaps in your smile, you want to find a trusted periodontist in Atlanta, GA, to be sure you are getting top-quality treatment and service. Dr. Gregg R. Codelli wants to be sure you understand dental implant cost and treatment options before you decide which remedy or combination of approaches is right for you.

Factoring in the Factors

No two dental implant procedures are exactly the same. Underlying oral health issues as well as the length of time since the tooth loss both affect the type and depth of procedure. Healthy bone is necessary for successful implantation and when there is bone loss, pre-treatment steps must be taken to ensure there is sufficient structure to hold the new implant. The following factors also affect the overall cost of the procedure.

  • The number of teeth you need replaced
  • The type and scope of bone atrophy 
  • If you need a sinus lift in conjunction with implants
  • The presence of gum disease

Understanding your overall oral health is an imperative first step in our recommending treatment strategies for your missing teeth.  

Making Comparisons

When comparing implants to other replacement treatments, it is essential to understand the value of each procedure and the potential need for further dental work in the future. Dental implants are collectively considered to be the best long-term solution for missing teeth. Because the implant inserted into your jawbone fuses to the jaw structure, it promotes healthy bones and lasts a lifetime. Although the upfront cost may be higher, with proper oral care, implants are one-time investment in your health and smile.
