One of the biggest considerations of implants is the cost. Dental implants are an investment in your long-term health and wellbeing. There are cheaper options for replacing your missing teeth, but they won’t offer the same level of aesthetic or function. To fully understand the costs of dental implants, it is important to understand the reason behind the cost of treatment.
What is the cost of dental implants in Milan?
There is a cost for the dental implant hardware and placing the implant into the mouth. There is a additional cost for the abutment and crown. Implants have a wide variability of cost. It is unlike many other treatments. It can depend on the amount of implants to be placed, how many crowns and whether it is a full arch reconstruction. It can cost over 2000 euros to place a single implant, depending on the quality of the materials used. This is because we use the most sophisticated implants, created with the latest technology for the absolute best result.
What factors influence dental implants costs?
Let’s take a simple case of replacing a single tooth that has been lost. You could place an implant that isn’t a top of the range implant – made from cheaper material. This could be placed without any preparatory treatment, such as gum or bone work. This would make it cheaper in the short term.
However, to get the best treatment for your smile, you could look to a higher end implant, that will have an additional upfront cost, but is more likely to have further long-term benefits. You could also have a bone graft or soft tissue gum graft. This is a highly skilled treatment, so will include an additional cost, but can have huge benefits longer-term. It’s important to understand that long-term aesthetics, benefits and oral health can be more costly in the short-term.
If something doesn’t go to plan during dental implants treatment, will it cost me more?
Most of the time, no. If a dental office has a good policy, any implant placed that is failing within a certain period of time, is replaced for free by your dental surgeon. However, if the implant fails after a few years due to poor hygiene or oral health issues, then it is not possible to replace it for free.
As a dental office, we replace the dental implant for free if it fails in the initial period after placement. This is providing hygiene has been maintained to an adequate standard and regular hygiene recalls were followed during this period of time.
How do manufacturers invest and develop their Implant systems?
There are a handful of dental implant companies, out of thousands of companies, that invest heavily in their research and development. This includes the surgical and prosthetic components. These companies’ products are often more expensive, but there is reason for that. Just as when you buy a car, there are more sophisticated models with a long term durability, which is the same with dental implants.
Investing in dental office facilities and equipment for implant dentistry in Milan
We only use three companies for our dental implants. We have chosen them carefully and believe them to be the absolute best in the world. We do this so our patients get the best care possible. This not only includes the implants, but also the surgical and prosthetic components. We have the latest diagnostic equipment to plan treatment. Our anesthesia equipment is electronic, giving the patient a much better experience and comfortable environment during surgery. We have also invested in infection control to ensure the absence of cross contamination during the procedure.
Whilst it may feel like anyone can be an implant dentist now, there are some dentists that have skill and experience in dental surgery. This goes beyond placing simple implants and can mean the difference between your implant being a success or not. I have a fully recognised US speciality both in periodontics and prosthodontics, which is rare, as normally dentists have a general degree or at the most they specialise in one or the other. It means that I am able to offer an insight into every aspect of implant dentistry, including gum health, bone grafting and prosthetics.
The aftercare we provide for our implant patients
We class aftercare as having the same importance as placing the dental implant. It is easy to think that you have a titanium implant and so there is no way you can get any decay. However, peri-implantitis is a serious condition that can develop from poor maintenance and oral health issues.
Once you lose bone around your implant through inflammation, it is very difficult to fix and can lead to implant failure. We have specially trained hygienists who will monitor your oral health and give advice about your dental hygiene and caring for your implants.
