A single Dental Implant procedure takes only a few minutes, with little or no discomfort. You'll be surprised at how fast the procedure goes.
Dental Implants are a wonderful alternative for replacing missing teeth. Hundreds of thousands of implants are placed every year.
A Healing Collar is placed on the implant while the implant heals in the bone. The healing collar is then replaced with an 'abutment' and a crown.
Don't let poor oral hygiene, missing teeth, or loose or worn dentures affect your quality of life. Dental Implants may be your answer.
The key to successful Dental Implant placement and restoration is a knowledgeable, experienced, and caring Team.
$1,000. per Implant (Includes the Titanium Dental Implant and the Implant Surgery Placement ONLY.)
All other fees related to the complete Dental Implant treatment are explained on this page.
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.
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 (if you qualify). Phone or Email our Dental Implant Coordinator DEBRA at:
Phone: 1-780-349-6700 or Email:
This program FULLY PAYS 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) is completely covered, up to the allowable AHS budget per year. This program does not include smaller socket grafting (ridge preservation procedures) following extractions.
WE CHARGE $1,000. Per Implant Placement Surgery at our Center (this Fee includes the cost of the Dental Implant and the Surgical Placement).
*** For any other Fees involved in the implant procedures such as CBCT-Scans (3-D Scan X-Rays), Operating Room Facility Fee, Restorative Costs (Crowns, Abutments, etc.), or surgical guides, call to talk to our Implant Coordinator (Debra) for a complete explanation or see below. THE ABOVE 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 may be covered FREE by Alberta Health Care.
For example: A single Implant with abutment and crown, complete, at our practice costs $3,990. This includes the consultation examination, the dental implant, the implant abutment or post, the final implant crown and laboratory fee, the surgical facility set up fee, the CBCT 3D Scan (3D X-ray), the surgical guide, diagnostic study models, as well as any extra radiographs required during the treatment. Additional implant crowns, complete, are $3,190. 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.
PLEASE NOTE: If the patient proceeds with the Implant Placement and Restoration at the Leigh Smile Center, the $100 Consultation fee and the $300 CBCT Scan fee is INCLUDED as part of the overall price ($3,990). This represents a LARGE saving to the patient. If not, we will be happy to provide you with a copy of your scan.
We have always believed that Dental Implants and Dental Implant procedures should be available to more patients. 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 most Implant cases can reduce the Implant surgery time to a few minutes per implant site, and allow for minimally invasive surgeries. . 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. You will receive a printed Fee Quotation estimate
prior to any treatment.
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

Bone Grafting: Alberta Health Care Insurance
currently pays for Bone Grafting procedures related to Dental Implants.
When comparing fee estimates, patients must keep in mind that there are two phases to dental implant placement:
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 to cover component parts and tools.
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, DIGITAL X-RAYS, 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 "no obligation Consultation". Please contact our office for more details, and to arrange for a consultation or Second Opinion. Implant Treatment Coordinator: Debra email: firstname.lastname@example.org
