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

A single implant restored with a dental crown costs an average of $3,000-$4,500, which includes the implant, crown, and abutment (the device connecting the crown to the implant. But of course, since every case and every need is different, the complete cost of treatment varies greatly. The first step in finding out what you can expect to pay for this treatment is visiting our St. Louis, MO, dentistry office for a consultation with Dr. Schlaikjer. He will assess your oral health and medical records to decide if you are a good candidate for dental implants. If you are, there are several factors in your dental implant treatment plan that will affect the overall cost. 

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.

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.

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.

Are Implants Worth the Cost?

Having a confident smile is priceless. Dental implants can help people who have missing teeth in several ways:

Speak Clearly

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.
