This message from Robert Matlach Dental in Huntington NY is about the cost of dental implants.
You can’t buy them at Costco. You can’t compare price tags on Amazon. The rates aren’t listed on your dentist’s site.
There is a reason for this.
A tooth implant procedure isn’t one-size-fits-all, and the price depends on many factors.
First, let’s specify what we are talking about. A single implant replacement tooth involves several parts:
- The post (screw)
- The abutment (connecting piece)
- The crown (artificial tooth)
The post is screwed directly into the jaw bone. It replaces the tooth root and is anchored where the root used to be. When the post fuses with the bone, we attach an abutment and then a crown for the visible portion of the tooth.
The cost of dental implants vary widely from one area to the next. Most dental plans do not cover implants, although this appears to be changing somewhat.
Dental implants from Robert Matlach Dental in Huntington NY are an investment that will pay off for years to come. We have placed them in patients from North Bay, East Smithtown, and South Melville, who also come to us for sedation dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
