Cost of Dental Implants
in Walnut Creek
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 in the Walnut Creek area, 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.

Obviously, Dr. Ali is the BEST - and that's what's important. I have had several surgeries and there is never much if any pain or swelling afterward, and his confidence and competence are inspiring. And special thanks to the check-in receptionist who was so lovely and made me feel so good, as most of the staff always have. The only humble suggestion I would make is I could have used the post-op instructions sooner (as in, not after the surgery). I mean, you'd think I'd know by now to stock up on ice cream, etc., but somehow, it never occurred to me. And the whole post-op talk was tough - admittedly I wasn't in the most aware state of mind, but that's a known thing. I couldn't hear the nurse - and I guess she couldn't hear me because she couldn't answer simple questions. And she really did not go over the follow-up plan very thoroughly and then forgot my bag of gauze (not the end of the world, but in that relatively fragile state, it just added difficulty.) Thanks for listening and thanks for taking such good care of me!! My family is lucky to be part of your practice and we're lucky that Dr. Alijanian is in little Walnut Creek for us.

Dr Alijanian and staff provided excellent service from start to finish including after care attention for my recent oral surgery. If any future oral surgery needs to be done I will certainly go back to Dr Alijanian. My two sons also had their wisdom teeth done by Dr Alijanian few years back and they had similar experience

The doctor and his staff were top notch. I would most definitely go back to this Doctor in this office for any procedures in the future. I will be telling family and friends what a great office and Doctor this is. I recommend this doctor and his staff 100%.
- Mitchell K
My only comment would be is I felt I wasn't given ample time to explain how I felt and to discuss my concerns. The dentist was seeing other patients in-between my visit so I felt I didn't have his undivided attention
- Anthony N
Very professional and courteous staff; Dr Alijanian is great!
- LYNDA K
Everyone in this clinic have shown professionalism. Dr. Alijanian is gentle and caring. I was given post care instructions (verbal and in print) which eased my worries regarding healing. Dr. Ali himself even called later in the day to check on how I'm doing. That has never happened with any of my previous dental surgeons. Thank you Dr. Alijanian and staff for the excellent experience.
