DENTAL IMPLANTS COST
Dental Implant Fee Schedule:
In an effort to better serve our patients and consumers, we are happy to provide you with information about Dental Implant fees and estimates. At the Leigh Smile Center we are striving to provide Dental Implants at low cost for Albertans. We feel it is important that our patients and potential patients do not experience 'surprises', hidden fees, or fees for unexplained procedures, and we are happy to provide you with an accurate fee estimate. It is prudent for consumers to compare fee quotations before committing to any Dental Implant procedures.
We want to make our patients feel welcome and at ease. In the winter months, warm up beside the fireplace.

"A team from the Athlone Institute of Technology in Ireland tested the antibacterial action of coconut oil in its natural state and coconut oil that had been treated with enzymes. The oils were tested against strains of Streptococcus bacteria which are common inhabitants of the mouth. They found that enzyme-modified coconut oil strongly inhibited the growth of most strains of Streptococcus bacteria including Streptococcus mutans — an acid-producing bacterium that is known to be a major cause of tooth decay."

Dental Implant Surgery Treatment Fees:
$1,000. per Implant
The above fee is for the Dental Implant (all standard sizes), and the surgical placement of the dental implant only, provided there is sufficient available bone width and height for Implant placement. For a complete fee breakdown (abutments, crowns, bridges, implant dentures and appliances), please see below or contact our office. Certain Conditions May Apply.
Before getting Bone Grafting for Dental Implants, to increase Bone Width and Height at insufficient sites, ask us about eligibility for Alberta Health Care’s Free Bone Grafting Program.
Phone or Email our Dental Implant Coordinator DEBRA at:
Phone: 1-780-349-6700 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This program may partially pay for Bone Grafting for Dental Implants, such as “SINUS GRAFTS” and “BLOCK GRAFTS”, to augment the deficient bone sites, as well as the Anesthetic for the procedure (IV Sedation or General Anesthetic), up to the allowable AHS budget per year.
This program does not include smaller socket grafting (ridge preservation procedures) following extractions.
*** For any other Fees involved in the implant procedures such as CBCT-Scans (3-D Scan X-Rays), Operating Room Facility Fee, or Restorative Costs (Crowns, Abutments, Hybrids, etc.) call to talk to our Implant Coordinator (Debra) for a complete explanation or see below.
THE ABOVE $1,000 FEE DOES NOT INCLUDE THE RESTORATIVE PHASE. For complete details, including the costs associated with the Restorative Phase (dental abutments, crowns, bridges, implant overdentures, and implant titanium frameworks), please see BELOW. Bone grafting for additional width or height is not usually required. If it is, it can be covered FREE by Alberta Health Care.
NEW 2018 DENTAL IMPLANT FEES.
COMPLETE SINGLE IMPLANT/CROWN TREATMENT -- $3,990
$3,990 Includes the Implant Surgery, Zirconia Ceramic Crown, Implant Abutment/Post, Laboratory Fee, Consultation Exam, CBCT-Scan (3D X-Ray), Surgical Set-up Fee, Surgical Guide, Diagnostic Study Models, and any extra radiographs required. Does not include Bone Grafting if required. Additional Implants/Crowns are $3,190 each (in the same arch, on the same surgery date). If the second or more implants are in a different arch, the price will be $3,590 each for the first implant, and $3,190 for the second or more implants.
PLEASE NOTE: The $100 Consultation fee and the $300 CBCT SCAN fee will be INCLUDED (credited) as part of the overall price if the patient proceeds with the implant placement and restoration at our Center. This represents a large saving to the patient.
We stand behind our work. Some dental implants do fail; however, this is rare. If they do fail, Dr. Leigh will refund the $1,000 Dental Implant placement fee or replace the implant at no additional charge, within one year of the initial surgery.
If you are seriously considering dental implants, you should do some comparative shopping. Compare prices in terms of the TOTAL fee ... not just the placing of the titanium implant. For instance, does the fee include the CBCT (3-D X-ray) SCAN, the SURGICAL GUIDE, the Consultation Fee, any additional radiographs, a Zirconia Ceramic Crown, the Abutment/Post, and the Laboratory Fee? You may find SIGNIFICANT differences in prices from dental office to dental office when you compare 'apples to apples'. Our fee is ALL INCLUSIVE.
Price is important to the vast majority of Patients.
We have always believed that Dental Implants and Dental Implant procedures should be available to more patients, and there can be a significant difference in price from one dental office to another. The majority of our simpler Implant surgeries take about 10 to 20 minutes to complete. The use of Computer Generated Surgical Guides in the larger Implant cases can reduce the Implant surgery time to a few minutes per implant site. So, conservatively, we can place 6 Implants in less than 1 hour.
The following fees are only "estimates". Actual prices may vary depending on the complexity of the treatment. Several factors, including but not restricted to: patient health, bone density and amount, gingival biotype, type of implant required, bone grafts, and bone regeneration, may result in increased fees. These factors will be assessed during your consultation, and prior to surgery. All aspects of the Implant Procedure will be explained fully to you prior to surgery.
ALL-ON-4, AND ZIRCONIA ARCHES: SEE "ALL-ON-4" PAGE.
If you are considering Dental Implants as an option to conventional dentures or missing teeth, then you should ask these Four Very Important Questions of your Dental Practitioner:
1. How long have you been placing and restoring dental Implants, and do you perform both the surgical and prosthetic phases?
2. How many implants have you placed?
3. What is your success rate? and,
4. Specifically, what is your training and qualifications in Dental Implant procedures?
You should not be afraid to ask those questions, and your dental professional should be quite willing to answer them.
At the Leigh Smile Center, we feel it is our obligation to provide you with that information. Dr. Leigh both places and restores Dental Implants, and focuses on Implant-related procedures in his Dental Practice. He will be happy to provide you with his experience and training in the area of Dental Implants. email@example.com

Our NEW 2018 FEE SCHEDULE has been designed to make DENTAL IMPLANTS cost-effective for all our patients. Considering the experience of our Dental Implant Team, we think it’s a GREAT value. We sincerely hope that this New Fee Schedule will help all patients to take advantage of the tremendous benefits of Dental Implants and make Dental Implant procedures more accessible to Albertans. Because of the current price of gold, there will be an additional fee of $100 for a full gold crown. All Prices are in Canadian Dollars.
Bone Grafting: Alberta Health Care Insurance may pay for Bone Grafting procedures related to Dental Implants.
When comparing fee estimates, patients must keep in mind that there are two phases to dental implants:
1. The Implant Surgery Phase. The surgical placing of the dental implant and healing collar in the mouth.
2. The Prosthetics Phase. Placing the abutment in the implant, and attaching the crown. Some dentists do only one of the phases -- either the implants or the prostheses. This may lead to greater overall cost. Other dentists, like Dr. Leigh, perform both phases of the procedure.
It is also important to choose an implant practitioner who has the training, experience, and knowledge to place various types of implants, and perform a multitude of implant procedures, such as bone augmentation, ridge splitting, and bone grafts. Follow-up aftercare is also a major factor in successful implant surgery. Fees may change without notice until a final treatment plan has been arranged and accepted; following which, the arranged fees will be valid for a period of 90 days.
Please Note: For the most part, we use 3 major brands of dental implants. At the Leigh Smile Center we are totally familiar with a number of different, major implant systems. However, we will place any other brand of dental implant the patient wishes for an additional fee of $300 each.
Unfortunately, the final results of Dental Implant Treatments, as well as all other dental treatments, cannot be 'guaranteed'. There is no way to predict how each patient will respond to various dental surgery procedures. The Alberta Dental Association and College does not allow Dentists in Alberta to guarantee or warranty dental treatment or services.
Routine replacement of metal or nylon retention clips or caps (for dentures), which must be changed as wearing occurs, will be charged at the standard fee.
Our Dental Team has many resources available to help you with your treatment options and the important decisions for your dental and overall health. Most importantly, we will answer all your questions in a thorough and complete manner, to make sure you understand all the phases of your proposed treatment.
We provide a comprehensive, computer print-out of the proposed treatment along with the total fees involved prior to commencing any treatment. Technology is an important part of providing modern Dental Implant treatment. All our dental operatories are equipped with computers, monitors, and Digital cameras, and we have our own in-office CBCT i-CAT Scan Machine (3D Imaging) for diagnosing all our implant cases.
We encourage you to be an informed consumer when considering Dental Implants. The Leigh Smile Center offers a "Consultation". Please contact our office for more details, and to arrange for a consultation or Second Opinion.
