Typical Treatment and Fee Ranges
New Patients Welcome. Fees are highly variable because of many factors including but not limited to risk, complexity, doctor's experience, materials and the cost of business overhead. Total charges are often higher when treatments are delivered over multiple offices because each office then must meet its own overhead cost. But this is not always the case; Dr. Schlie is happy to work with your favorite dentist to bring cost effective solutions to you.
It is common for extensive treatment to be charged on a single fee basis rather than broken down into minor component parts. For example, in our office if Dr. Schlie sets out to do a 12 Teeth Bridge on 6 Implants and it requires 1 or 2 more implants, he often will not charge anything extra. That would also be the case if minor bone grafting or tissue grafting becomes required.
Many cases are similar, many patients are similar, but no two cases and no two patients are identical therefore it is rare that treatment for you will be identical to that of your neighbor. Do you want to know what dental implants cost? Look below....
The depicted treatment and fees do not take into account potential additional costs such as exams, radiographs, CT scans, pre-treatment surgical guides, bone grafting, tissue grafting, and complications.
This information will help you get over sticker shock! It is good to remember that the primary reason prices seem so high for many is that the U.S. dollar has been significantly devalued since 1970! (In 1970 gold was $32 per ounce; at the time of this writing--mid May 2014--the price of bullion gold is $1295 per ounce! What is it right now? )
The information presented here is neither meant to be exhaustive nor is it meant to dictate what any doctor charges or any patient pays for treatment. This will merely give you some ideas of typical treatment solutions and fee ranges ($ U.S.) in California.
Our fees are generally within these typical ranges, are presented to you in writing, and agreed upon before treatment begins.
