In all honesty, since dental implants have been invented, the cost of receiving implants has gone down. But why are they still expensive? This is due to the amount of research and development that went into creating an implant.
In addition, dental implants are made from a costly material called titanium. More so, titanium can range in quality, making the material more expensive. Being softer or harder, the place where it’s made, and the extensive training the dentist had to undergo for dental implants all contribute to the net cost.
The amount of time it takes for a dentist to become a board certified implantologist can range up to ten years! Even after this certification, the implantologist must take exams and keep up with present-day practices in order to keep their board certification. Having this much extensive training requires a good investment which is then shown in the cost of the dental implant.
