Dental Implants Cost
Do you have missing teeth, but think you can't afford to replace them?
Dr. Justin Schlaikjer and his St. Louis, MO, team of dental professionals can make the treatment you need fit your budget.
We invite you to learn more about the cost of dental implants and why it is such a worthy investment.
Cost of Dental Implants
Number of Implants Needed
Replacing one missing tooth will cost less than replacing several or all of your teeth. The number of missing teeth also affects what type of restoration is needed, such as one crown or a full denture.
State of Oral Health
If you are suffering from periodontal (gum) disease or have any bone loss in your jaw, you may require more treatments before the implants can be inserted. This requires more appointments, more treatments, and more money.
Choice of Restorations
Depending on your needs, your dentist will recommend different types of replacement teeth. A dental crown, dental bridge, or dentures are the most common. The number of restorations, the type, and the materials used all affect the cost of your treatment.
Choice of Provider
The dentist you choose not only affects the cost of your treatment, but also the quality. Dr. Schlaikjer has 10 years of dental experience and specialized training in implant dentistry. With our flexible financing options, you can trust you will get the care you need at a price you can afford.
Here's Why Our Patients Rate our St. Louis, MO, Office 5 Stars!
By far, the BEST experience I’ve ever had at a medical office. The staff/doctor was so accommodating, and made me feel super welcome and comfortable. At one point during my visit I told them I felt like I was at a spa! They treat their patients so well and give you their undivided attention. I was dreading this visit, but it was actually enjoyable! Dr. Schlaikjer was very informative and took his time, he was funny (as well as the staff), and I know I can trust him, which can be hard to find when it comes to healthcare. They truly, truly care about their patients, and I will definitely be back.View On Google
I was referred by my dentist who gave Dr S a rave review. After a thorough examination it was determined that my bone had to be built up to, accommodate an implant. It was a difficult task but Dr S handled it with expertise, compassion and an explanation of each and every procedure before he began. After major oral surgery he sent me home with his cell phone number to call if I was in pain. I have the utmost confidence in dr S and encourage anyone needing a Periodontist to go to him.View On Google

Are Implants Worth the Cost?
Our teeth play a major role in our ability to speak clearly. People who have missing teeth can be self-conscious about the way they enunciate. Dental implants act as a sturdy base for restorations that allows them to function just like your natural teeth, meaning you will be able to speak clearly once again.
Realign Your Bite
An improper bite can cause issues with your jawbone and overall oral health. By replacing your teeth with implants and restorations, your dentist can realign your bite to ensure it is properly balanced and functioning correctly.
Prevent Bone Atrophy
Missing teeth means missing tooth roots, which causes deterioration of your jawbone. By replacing the missing tooth roots with implants, you can maintain a healthy jawbone and prevent atrophy.
Get Your Confidence Back
Having gaps in your smile can be embarrassing. Because implants are a permanent fixture in your mouth, your restorations will have a solid base that allows them to look and function like your natural teeth. No one will know they're not your natural teeth, and you'll be able to smile with confidence once again.
