The above fee includes the Implant and the Implant placement only (the Surgical Phase). All other fees related to the complete dental implant treatment (Surgical and Restorative Phases) are explained on the Dental Implant Fees page. For example: A single implant with abutment and crown, at the Leigh Smile Center, will cost $3,990. This includes the dental implant, the implant abutment or post, the final implant crown, and the surgical facility fee. Additional implant crowns, complete, are $3,100 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. The 3-D X-ray and the surgical guide are included in the fee.
We stand behind our work. Some dental implants do fail; however, this is rare. At the Leigh Smile Center, we have a very high success rate. If the implant does fail, Dr. Leigh will refund the $1,000 dental implant placement fee, or replace the implant at no additional charge, within one year of placement.
Patients should be aware that there are no Dental Implant "Specialists". The Alberta Dental Association & College and the Canadian Dental Association do not recognize the placing and restoring of Dental Implants as a "Specialty" field in dentistry. No dentist in Alberta is allowed to say that they "specialize" in Dental Implants, or that they are "specialists" in Dental Implant procedures. This would be misleading to patients, and a violation of the Code of Ethics. Every registered Dentist in Alberta (General Dentist or Specialist), with the proper training and experience, can place and restore Dental Implants. Dr. Leigh has been placing and restoring dental implants throughout his long dental career. Dr. Leigh does only Dental Implants and related procedures in his dental practice. His Associate Dentists perform all aspects of General Dentistry, including Dental Implants.
IMPLANT DIRECT's "All-Over-4" treatment concept utilizes 4 Implants to support a fixed screw-retained implant appliance. All-Over-4 and Teeth-in-1 Day are registered trademarks of Implant Direct Sybron International. A similar treatment option is NOBEL BIOCARE's "All-On-4" and "Teeth-in-A-Day" which are registered trademarks of Nobel Biocare. Another similar concept, "All-in-one" (a full Zirconium Implant Arch), is a registered trademark of Quadrant Dental. SEE BELOW. Another example is the "PRETTEAU Dental Implant Bridge" (full contour Zirconia) from Tischler Dental Laboratory. As you can see, there are many options for screw-retained implant appliances in the marketplace.
These appliances are used for the total rehabilitation of the edentulous patient. We are now pleased to offer this innovative treatment option to our patients who request it. All trademarks are the property of their respective companies.
Maxillary (Upper Appliance), a Fixed / Removable "HYBRID" Appliance. In all of these appliances we use Nobel Procera Services (Nobel Biocare) MILLED TITANIUM FRAMEWORKS exclusively.
1. MAXILLARY FEES (Upper Appliance) $18,000. to $22,000.
2. MANDIBULAR FEES (Lower Appliance) $16,000. to $18,000.
The lower price of each of the two fees above is for cases where 4 implants are used at the patient's request. The higher price is for cases where 6 implants are utilized. Above Fees include the Implant Placement Surgery and All the Implants and Abutments, including the final restoration.
3. *** Immediate Function (Teeth-in-1-Day) ... ADD $2,000. to the above fees if the patient requires Immediate Fixed Temporary Teeth.
Prof. Malo pioneered the idea of total rehabilitation of the edentulous patient developed in the early 1990’s at the Malo Clinic in Spain, which allows for immediate function, full-arch Implant-Supported appliances. This treatment option can avoid the necessity for sinus grafting by utilizing angled implant placement in the posterior maxilla (upper jaw).This Implant Therapy option is now promoted by many Implant manufacturers.
"The placement of dental implants for single tooth restoration started with edentulous sites and has evolved to immediate extraction and placement of an implant in a single day. Immediate "loading" of single implants is a misnomer as single implants cannot truly be loaded without a high risk of failure. However, with full arch replacement there is now true multiple placement and immediate loading in a single day! This technique is gaining worldwide popularity as it is a true immediate (temporary) fixed prosthetic alternative to removable solutions. It is a predictable, esthetic and (cost-effective) solution, versus up to a dozen implants and grafts needed for a past traditional fixed solution to the edentulous arch." BioHorizons Canada.
DENTURES ON IMPLANTS: (Please see the "Terminology" Page)
If you’re tired of your current dentures moving around in your mouth, and think denture adhesive is bothersome, our denture replacement solution may be right for you. A fixed denture replacement solution consists of a dental implant bridge that is supported by four or more dental implants. By using dental implants to secure the dentures, the need for denture adhesive is no longer necessary. Because the dental implants function like the natural roots, the dentures will feel almost like your natural teeth. Ask our Dentists if you may be a candidate for a fixed (screw-retained) dental implant appliance to replace your conventional denture.

These prices include a CAD/CAM Computer designed and Milled Temporary Verification Bridge.
We are now able to offer our patients a low cost option for Full Arch Rehabilitation.
Structural Properties: The transformation toughened Zirconia has unique properties such as high fracture toughness and strength. Extensive laboratory studies confirmed the strength, superiority of zirconium-based restorations. Excellent material physical properties, biocompatibility, and superior aesthetics make Y-TZP a popular material among the contemporary all-ceramic material. Extensive in vitro and in vivo studies have confirmed high fracture resistance and its use in stress bearing areas. The five-year clinical follow-up studies that are in progress have shown a positive result at the end of first year."
