The cost of an All-On-4 dental implant treatment iin Houston varies significantly from $12,500 to over $20,000 which can be confusing to many patients who visit our office for consultation.
The financial aspects of treatment are important and as a patient, it’s understandable to expect that All-On-4 pricing should be the same wherever you go because the treatment is the same since it’s just 4 implants holding a full set of teeth
So why the huge differences in price? Given the disparity of the advertised costs how does one make a fair price comparison?
The first thing a prospective patient needs to understand is that the treatment has two parts. first, there is the surgical placement of the dental implants, where 4 implants are placed in the jaw.
The second and equally important part is the prosthetic teeth that are secured to the implants. As a patient this is arguably the most important part as this is what give you your smile back as well as restores your chewing ability. It is the second part that impacts the price of All-On-4 Dental Implants in Houston.
There are several methods to make the teeth that are secured to the dental implants as well as many different materials.
The lower price point, $12,500 and under typically includes a temporary tooth bridge that will need replacing to a more permanent version after the implants have healed and attached to the bone. Permanent teeth in this price range are typically made of plastic and are prone to fracture and wear.
In contrast, the more expensive options, $18K and over, include a state-of-the-art permanent set of teeth milled in one piece from high strength ceramic which studies have shown to be the strongest type of material for esthetic tooth replacement available.
