At Klein Dentistry, tooth replacement with a dental implant requires careful planning involving Dr. Klein, the implant surgeon, and the dental laboratory.
One factor that can result in additional costs can be preparing a deficient implant site. When a tooth has been missing for some time, there can be insufficient height and width of bone in which to place the implant. In other words “there isn’t enough dirt to bury the fence post”.
The location in the mouth can also affect the cost of replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant, and preparing a deficient implant site may require additional procedures. Replacing a single front tooth can be much more complicated, time consuming, and aesthetically demanding than an out-of-sight back tooth, leading to additional costs.
