Why Do Dental Implant Prices Vary?
For dental patient/ customers you need to know TWO very important factors:
– What are known as “Dental implants“ publically, usually consist of 3 different components (implant fixture, abutment, and crown) so when you see a special offer for $499 for implants, that means it’s only for the bone fixture and most likely they will overcharge you for the other 2 components to offset the low pricing on the implant fixture. When you see an offer such as that, you should always ask the right question: (How much will the total dental Implant restoration cost me?).
– There are over 200 dental implant companies and brands, so when you get a dental implant restoration you have to get all 3 components of the dental implant restorations from the same brand. Many of these cheap/low-cost companies might go under and vanish, which will make it extremely hard to find parts to restore them in case some component needs replacement. If that happens, then the whole implant restoration including the bony fixture has to come out and you have to go through the surgery again. So you have to make sure you are going with a good, reputable dental implant brand so they will last for years and years to come.
