Learn more about dental implants in Athens GA
A number of factors can affect the cost of your dental implant procedure. Factors ranging from the condition of your oral health to the type of dental implant procedure you are having can greatly affect the overall cost. A consultation with Dr. Matthew McRae Jr. in Athens, GA can give you a better idea of what your cost of a dental implant procedure might be.
The amount of teeth you need replaced with a dental implant procedure will affect your cost. The more teeth that you need to replace, the more the procedure will cost. Replacing more teeth, requires more materials and time that we will need to spend providing your treatment. Dr. McRae will spend more time during the actual procedure as well as evaluating the bone density at the sites where your implants will be placed in order to be most stable and effective.
Separate procedures that need to be done prior to your dental implant procedure will contribute to your overall cost. While these procedures are billed separately, their necessity certainly affects the total of your treatment plan.
A separate procedure may be recommended by Dr. McRae if there is bone loss present, a sinus lift is required, periodontal disease is present, or extractions are needed. In the instance of bone loss, a bone graft may be necessary before your dental implant procedure since dental implants require a sufficient amount of bone to be placed. If there is periodontal disease present, Dr. McRae may recommend treating it first to increase the likelihood of success of your dental implants.
Dr. McRae will discuss any necessary separate procedures, such as a sinus lift or necessary extractions, with you during your dental implant consultation.
