Affordable Dental Implants
Dr. Koshgerian and Dr. Shelton are trusted surgical professionals in the San Diego area who have served our community through beneficial oral health care for over two decades. We believe that everyone deserves to have a healthy smile, and one that you never feel like you have to hide.
The choice to restore your smile with dental implants is a long-term investment in your health. With a complete smile, you can enjoy your favorite foods, maintain proper oral hygiene, prevent dental shifting and jaw bone loss, and feel confident about your smile. Some patients opt for cheaper options upfront, such as removable dentures or bridges. While these options restore the appearance and some function to your smile, they do not prevent bone loss or improve your oral health.
Additionally, patients find it inconvenient to have to replace dentures every few years, and not having them professionally fitted can cause sores and slipping pieces. With dental implants, there are no moving parts. Your replacement teeth are there to stay, and will look and feel just like your natural teeth. This investment is one worth making, because dental implants are the only restorative solution that fuses to the jaw bone and prevents the bone from weakening over time. Patients with removable oral appliances may experience facial sagging, dental shifting, and severe bone atrophy associated with tooth loss.
The cost of your dental implant surgery will depend on several factors, including:
- The number of implants you will be receiving
- If you require bone grafting or other tooth extraction
- Your choice of anesthesia (this could include local anesthesia, nitrous oxide, IV sedation, and/or general anesthesia)
- The details of your dental insurance
During the consultation, our staff will cover all of these items with you and provide a cost estimate. We can discuss your method of payment and answer any questions you have about the payment process and your account.
When it comes to anesthesia, many patients remain comfortable with local anesthesia, an injection that numbs only the surgical site. However, depending on the complexity of your procedure and your level of anxiety, you may opt for another choice such as laughing gas or IV sedation. General anesthesia is typically reserved for complex surgical procedures, such as corrective jaw surgery or those involving a hospital stay.
One option to decrease the cost of your implant treatment is to consider same-day dental implants. This treatment involves your surgeon extracting a damaged or decayed tooth and immediately placing a dental implant post into the empty tooth socket. This can only be done if you have enough jaw bone to support the implant. In some cases, we can place grafting material around the implant post during this same visit, allowing the graft and implant post to heal together to form a solid foundation. Immediately replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant leads to less recovery time, fewer office visits, and the satisfaction of consistently having a complete smile.
