Cost of Dental Implants
If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants are the gold standard for tooth replacement. If you’re considering getting implants, contact our office today to see if you are a good candidate. We can set up a consultation to discuss insurance, financing, and the cost of dental implants in Morristown, NJ.
How much do dental implants cost?
Dental implant surgery, including the implant, abutment, and crown, costs between $3,500 to $4,000 per tooth. Full-mouth dental implants cost significantly more because they require more material, and it is a more complicated surgery. However, some insurance plans may help cover some of the costs associated with dental implants.
Getting a dental implant is one of the more expensive tooth replacement options. The cost of implants depends on many factors, including the number of teeth replaced, whether you need other treatment like extraction or bone grafting to prepare the area, your oral health, and your insurance.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Treatment
Many different factors will contribute to the total cost of your dental implant procedure. These include:
- Number of Implants: The more implants you need, the more expensive the surgery will become.
- Type of Implant: Standard titanium implants are the most common and least expensive option. However, other types of implants, such as zirconia or ceramic, may be recommended for some patients and can cost more.
- Implant Placement Location: Implants placed in the front of the mouth typically cost less than those placed in the back.
- The Complexity of the Surgery: More complex cases, such as those that require a bone graft or sinus lift, will usually cost more than simple cases.
Will my insurance cover dental implants?
While most dental insurance plans cover tooth extractions, many will not cover the total cost of dental implants. They are a more costly tooth replacement option, and as such, they are typically not fully covered by insurance. If you are considering implants, check with your insurance provider to see if they offer this coverage. If your insurance provider does not cover the cost of implants, our office will work with you to determine if you may qualify for financing options.
About Dental Implants
Dental implants are an excellent choice for replacing missing teeth. Unlike dentures or bridges, which rely on neighboring teeth for support, implants are a standalone tooth replacement option. An implant is a small titanium post that our oral surgeon will place into the jawbone. Once the implant has healed and bonded with your jawbone, an artificial tooth (called a crown) is attached to the post. Patients can get a single tooth implant or even full mouth implants to support a complete set of dentures. With proper care and good oral hygiene, they can last you a lifetime.
