This is Dr. Sasan Khodabakhsh. I often get asked by my patients, how much does it dental implant cost? The short answer that it depends. And in this video, I'm going to try to answer all the factors that are involved in the pricing of a dental implant. You know, typically a dental implant, it consists of three different connections, you have the implant itself, which is the part that goes in the jaw, you have what's called the abutment that fits over the implant. And then you also have the crown that fits over the button, which is the part that you actually chew on as a restoration itself. Other factors determine the cost of the dental implant, for example, the demographics, where does this patient live? You know, someone that lives in Kansas, for example, what may get quoted a different price than someone that lives in New York City? Another factor is the dentist that's placing that dental implant, you know, as a general dentist placing the implant? Or is it a specialist placing the implant, general dentists can have a lot of experience placing dental implants, and also, you know, their experience level is an important factor. So do your research when you decide on the provider that's going to be placing that implant for you. Another important factor is the lab that's being used, you know, this lab somewhere, you know, overseas, or is it you know, a tried and true lab, right here in America that, you know, stands behind their product and their material. Because whatever we put in the mouth, you know, we want this to last a very, very long time. Another factor that determines the cost of the implant is the warranty that's given, you know, some dental offices do give like a one year or five year warranty, and no at some point, Dental Implant Center, we give a lifetime warranty, as long as a patient comes out every six months for their regular checkups and cleanings. Another factor that I want to mention, you know, typically, you know, when a patient comes in, and once a dental implant is, you know, after we take the, you know, 3d x-ray and we take our x-rays, you know, there may not be enough bone in the area that we want to place an implant. So, you know, we have to add extra bone, we have to augment the tissue. You know, there's a lot of different factors that can increase the price of a dental implant. So those are discussions we want to definitely go with, go over with the patient. When determining the price. The cost of a dental implant can range anywhere from the low end from $3,000 up to a high end of $5,000. Based on all the different factors I discussed earlier.
