Dental Implant Costs

Dental implants offer one of the best return on investments of any modern type of tooth replacement treatment. Their durability and integrity allow these “artificial” tooth roots to last for decades or even the lifetime of our Buffalo, NY dental implant patients.

How Much Does It Cost to Get Dental Implants?

How can you know for certain how much your dental implants will cost? An accurate price estimate can only be given once Dr. Oppenheimer has had a chance to fully evaluate and examine your unique mouth and oral anatomy.

Many factors that go into the total cost of dental implants include things like:

  • The number of teeth that are missing
  • How many implants will be needed to support your fixed prosthesis
  • Which type of prosthesis you choose (i.e. bridge, crown, denture)
  • Adjunctive procedures such as sinus lifts, bone grafting, etc.
  • The type of implants being placed (traditional vs. mini)

You Won’t Need an Implant for Each Missing Tooth

It’s possible to use as few as four implants to permanently support a fixed denture (or extended implant bridge) to replace all of the upper or lower teeth at one time. A 3 or 4-tooth bridge can be supported by just two implants. The bottom line: you do not necessarily need an implant for each tooth that is missing, thus your implant treatment costs may fit your budget better than originally expected.

Insurance and Financing for Dental Implants

Some dental insurance plans will cover a portion of implant treatments. During your consultation we can provide you with an estimate of your coverage allowances and financing options to easily budget the difference. Because implants last longer than most dental restorations, they wind up being one of the most affordable treatments over the course of your lifetime.
