Considering the Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants have been available for several decades. However, for most patients, they are still a relatively new concept. When considering the cost of dental implants and comparing quotes, there are several important points that should be kept in mind.
Financing for Dental Implants
Dental implants are an investment in your health as well as your appearance. A full set of teeth makes eating a pleasure again, making it easier to eat a balanced, healthy diet. It also preserves the contours of the face, keeping you from appearing older.
We will tailor your treatment plan to accommodate your specific needs. We are also contracted with health care credit companies that offer no-interest and low-interest loans for medical procedures, including dental implants. Click below to learn more about these financing options:

When comparing the cost of dental implants to other tooth replacement methods such as dentures and bridges, it is important to take into consideration the longevity offered by dental implants that is not always afforded by other, more traditional methods.
While dentures and bridges are initially less expensive, their affordability can be short-lived. Because these older methods require repair and replacement every 5-10 years, they are often more expensive over time. By contrast, dental implants, when properly placed and cared for, can last a lifetime.
Jaw Bone Health
Over time, when a tooth is missing, the jaw bone deteriorates. So while a denture or bridge may seem to function similarly to a tooth, underneath the surface damage is being done to the jaw bone and ultimately to the structure of the face. This can result in the distortion of the shape of a person’s face, leading to additional cosmetic costs down the road.
On the other hand, dental implants are made of titanium, which actually integrates with the jaw bone, strengthening it and stimulating bone growth. This preserves the natural strength and quality of the mouth, lessening problems in the future.
Quality of Life
Dental implants can be seen as a long-term investment not only in terms of money, but also in terms of quality of life. A dental implant is the closest thing to a natural tooth. In addition to allowing the patient to eat the same healthy foods he or she has always enjoyed, it also eliminates the day-to-day hassles and possible embarrassment that are frequently caused by dentures.
Comparing Dental Implant Quotes
There are several steps (and often multiple professionals) involved in the placement of a dental implant. When comparing quotes, it’s important to factor in the cost of each of these steps:
- Exams/office visits
- Tooth/root extraction
- Bone grafting
- Placement of the titanium root (the “dental implant”)
- Placement of the crown
- X-rays, pre/post operative care
Financing for Dental Implants
First, check with your dental insurance carrier to see what portion, if any, of dental implants they cover.
There are health care credit companies that offer no-interest and low-interest loans for medical procedures including dental implants.
Dental Implants are an investment in your health as well as your appearance. A full set of teeth makes eating a pleasure again, making it easier to eat a balanced, healthy diet. A full set of teeth also preserves the contours of the face, keeping you from looking old before your time.

I rather go to have a donut. But if you are in need of an implant the doctor and his team make you actually come and go with a smile on your face. A doctor of a class of his own. The team around him, superb. The office is super nice from decoration, music, etc.

So far this has been the best dentist visit I have ever been on. The staff was courteous and responsive even to my busy schedule and multiple times of having to reschedule with them. I would recommend them to anyone.

I know all the five stars seem lazy or excessive on my part but I sincerely want people to know how much this office helped me through every part of my experience. I had both zygomatic implants (because of severe bone loss) and complete extraction of teeth and implants in my lower jaw. This was all on the same day. Despite normal dental pain I felt so safe and cared for and all my followup appointments met the same standard. I can't thank Dr.Alijanian enough and I'd like to thank each member of the staff for his or her individual attention and care.
