Factors that Contribute to Dental Implant Cost
As no two dental implant procedures are alike, your dental implant cost can depend upon several factors, including the number of implants you receive, any preliminary procedures performed, and the type of restorations placed. During your consultation at our Pensacola, FL, office, Dr. Andrew Taylor and our staff can outline the total cost of your implant surgery and restoration placement. He will carefully review the individual steps of each procedure, your restoration options, and your budget, to create a personalized treatment plan that is right for you.
Why Do You Need Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an investment into your oral health and general wellbeing. While they may not be the least expensive solution, dental implants provide the most stable, secure base for restorations. You will never have to worry about your restoration slipping out of place, which can happen with traditional dentures, nor will you have to sacrifice the integrity of adjacent tooth structure to ensure a secure placement, which is required for a dental bridge. Implants are designed to last a lifetime, which increases their value exponentially.
Variables That May Affect Cost
As dental implant surgery is unique to each individual patient, the cost will be dependent upon multiple variables, including:
- Doctor’s Experience
- It is important to choose a reputable oral surgeon that is highly experienced in implant techniques. Although a surgeon with extensive training may cost more initially, it will greatly reduce your chances of complications, which can be costly and time-consuming. When you trust your smile to Dr. Taylor, he will recommend only the most highly qualified oral surgeon to perform your procedure.
- Your oral surgeon may offer several types of sedation, including oral sedation, intravenous (IV) sedation, or general anesthesia. The type of sedation you receive will affect the overall cost of your procedure.
- Preparatory Procedures
- If you require any prerequisite procedures, such as a bone graft, sinus lift, tooth extraction, or periodontal treatment, you may incur a higher cost. However, these procedures can ensure a successful treatment outcome and protect your long-term oral health.
- Number of Implants
- The number of implants you need will affect the overall cost of your treatment. One implant will generally cost less than several. However, for the right candidates, Dr. Taylor can restore an entire dental arch using only four implants with the advanced All-on-4® technique.
- Type of Restoration
- Dr. Taylor provides multiple implant-supported restoration options, including dental crowns, bridges, partial dentures, and full dentures. For the right candidates, we can also place a same-day crown. The type of restoration and material used in production will contribute to the overall treatment cost.
At Taylor Dental, we strive to make necessary procedures accessible to patients with varying budgets, which is why we accept all major insurance providers. We also accept a variety of payment and financing options to help make this vital treatment more affordable, including:

"Everyone that I interacted with was professional and friendly. My dental hygienist, Holly, did an exceptional job cleaning my teeth. She was proficient and kept me as comfortable as possible. The office is very clean, and I just love the heated massage chairs as well as the TV, headphones, and sunglasses provided. Genius!"Donna S.
