Dental implants are a long-lasting, viable solution for replacing missing teeth. However, they are also one of the most expensive restorative dental procedures due to the fact that it actually involves surgery. Although everyone wants to get the best deal possible to save some money, it is generally not in your best interest to shop around for the cheapest implants in town. You still want to be certain you are getting a high-quality restoration.

Hidden Fees

It might be tempting to meet with several different dentists in your area to see who offers the lowest price. One tactic you need to be aware of is hidden fees. Sometimes a dentist will advertise that the price of the implant is very low but fails to mention how much it costs to get the abutment and crown put in as well. The implant is technically only the titanium post that gets inserted into the jaw bone. An abutment and crown are also needed to replace the visible segment of the tooth. You may think you are getting a deal when in actuality, you are paying much more than what you would get elsewhere.

Subpar Work 

Even if you do your research and find a very low price, there is the risk that the implant will not be inserted correctly. Since surgery is involved, special precautions must be taken in order to prevent an infection within the affected socket. It is never worth it to experience more complicated oral health problems just to save a little money.
