What is the cost to implant at tooth 22?

Dear Patient,

Thank you for reaching out and expressing your interest in BICON ultrashort implants. From your questionnaire, I understand that you’ve lost a tooth and might be considering an implant to restore functionality and aesthetics. You’ve stated that cost is an important factor for you, which is not uncommon among patients exploring dental implants.

As you may already know, the **3D Intraoral Scanning, 3D Digital Volume Tomography (DVT) Scan, 3D Virtual Implant Planning, and 3D Surgical Implant Navigation** are a standard procedure for computer-guided implantology. These procedures ensure a highly successful and precise placement of your implant.

Our **BICON ultrashort implants** have several advantages over traditional implants. They often eliminate the need for extensive bone grafting procedures, which are required when there’s insufficient bone to support standard-length implants. This makes the process less invasive, potentially shortens the treatment span, and can be more cost-effective. Moreover, the simplified procedure and reduced need for additional surgical interventions may lead to a lower risk of complications.

It’s important to note that **Short Implants** cannot be compared to conventional or traditional implants because they require a different approach and surgical procedure to guarantee long-term results. Short Implants are characterized by a plateau geometry and are tapped into the bone, not screwed. This guarantees a higher contact area between the implant surface and the surrounding bone, providing a more stable “grip” than screw-retained implants.

Our surgical procedure for Short Implant placement includes the following steps:

**FIRST STEP** – Under local anesthesia, four to six Short Implants are inserted in the upper and/or lower jaw. This surgery takes one to two hours per jaw, with follow-up visits recommended 24 hours and 48 hours after surgery.

**SECOND STEP** – Three months later, a small incision is made in the soft tissue to attach the prosthetic component, indicating the implant’s position for the laboratory to create a model. This is also the time for you to try on a replica of the prosthetic and discuss any desired aesthetic modifications.

**THIRD STEP** – Three days after the impression-taking, you will have a final opportunity to try the prosthetic replica and make last-minute corrections. The final prosthetic is then inserted 48 hours later.

Regarding the cost of this procedure, it typically varies between 12.000€ and 20.000€ per arch, depending on the number of implants and the type of prosthetic chosen. For an individual tooth implant, such as at tooth 22, the cost would likely be at the lower end of this scale. However, to provide an accurate quote, a comprehensive assessment of your specific condition and needs would be necessary.

I hope this information has been helpful and I look forward to discussing your implant options further during your next visit.

Kind regards,

Prof. Dr. Mauro Marincola
