Cost of Dental Implants
The price of dental implants will vary greatly based on a number of factors. For more straightforward cases, the cost of dental implant placement can range between $3,000 and $6,000 in the New Jersey area. The custom-made temporizations, abutment, and crown can cost an additional $2,000 to $3,000. For more complex cases, the patient may require preliminary dental work, such as soft tissue grafting, bone grafting, and extractions, which can increase the total cost to about $10,000.
When you come in for your evaluation, Dr. Beckwith can give you an idea of what you can expect based on your oral state. Each dental implant procedure is managed on a case-by-case basis, ensuring the unique demands of a patient’s dental needs are effectively addressed. In general, the amount you can expect to pay will depend upon the following:
- Complexity of the surgery and if bone grafting is needed
- Number of implants being placed
- Material used to craft the crown
- Laboratory fees
- Expertise of the surgeon
- Geographic area
Since dental implant surgery is such a specialized procedure, it is crucial that you seek a highly qualified implant dentist to obtain best results. Considering the complexity of dental implant surgery, the expertise of your surgeon is very important to the success of your surgery and your overall safety. Dr. Beckwith is a board-certified dental implant provider with more than 30 years of experience. He is highly sought after for his advanced skill and precision in performing both the surgery and placing the artificial tooth.
Although dental implants are more of an investment compared to other tooth replacement options, their value is far superior and can last a lifetime. Should you wish to discuss your dental financing options to make your payment more affordable, our Financial Coordinator is more than happy to sit down with you to answer your questions and help you find an appropriate plan to make dental implants a reality.
Does Insurance Cover Dental Implants?
Whether your insurance will cover the dental implant procedure will depend upon your provider and specific policy. In most cases, dental benefits are designed to only cover routine and emergency care. As a result, dental implants are often excluded from insurance coverage, though the lowest-priced alternative typically qualifies. If dental implants are a covered benefit, the amount your insurance will pay is still limited to your policy’s annual maximum.
Although rare, some medical insurance plans are beginning to offer coverage for procedures like bone grafting. Patients who experienced tooth loss due to an injury may also be eligible for medical insurance coverage. Keep in mind, however, that both of these scenarios are very uncommon, and your medical benefits will likely not contribute to dental implant surgery.
While dental and medical insurance may not offer significant financial support for dental implants, Dr. Beckwith is committed to making the procedure a realistic solution for patients who are good candidates. Through the Cornerstone Premier Dental Plan—our in-house dental insurance program—patients can receive a discount on their total dental implant cost, helping make the process more affordable.
