OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
overall cost of dental teeth implants is based on several factors.
Dental implant placement comprises of 3 or 4 individual
1. Bone Graft at site of extraction (Only if required)
2. Placing of the Dental Implant
3. Placing of Abutment
4. Placing of dental crown on the abutment.
The cost of each step is different depending on the specific situation,
but is typically within a 20% range.
Broadly, placement of tooth implants can be divided into 4 steps:
1: Initial Dental Implant Consultation
implant consultations are a critical part of the process of placing
dental implants in any patient. Dr. Lokhandwala will evaluate the
of the gums and jaw bone before recommending placement of the dental
implant. In order to do this intraoral and panoramic x-rays will be
taken. StarBrite Dental uses digital panoramic imaging and so all this
done in one sitting in our offices. Depending on various factors and
the amount of diagnostic work required, this "consultation/records
visit" may be charged. If the patient has dental insurance a
significant (if not all) portion of this dental implant initial visit
2: Bone Grafts or Sinus Lifts - If Required
If Dr. Lokhandwala determines that the bone
depth is inadequate at the dental implant site, a bone graft may be
recommended before dental implants placement. Sometimes in placing
upper jaw dental implants it may be determined that the sinus cavity is
low and would need to be lifted in order to give room for the implant
to be inserted.
These procedures if determined to be required
be performed in our offices by Dr. Lokhandwala.
In most cases this portion may not be required.
3: Placement of the Dental Implant (Titanium screw)
This involves placing a titanium screw (the dental
implant) into the bone under the gum. The implant is slowly screwed
into the bone using a guide. This process is done using local
anesthetic, and is comfortable and takes about 45 minutes. Dental
screw-like threads such as those made by Nobel Biocare or Endopore are
special materials on the screws to enhance or accelerate bone growth
and integration with the implant. After this stage, a
three-to-four-month waiting period is given for the bone to grow around
the dental implant screws and tightly integrate with it. During this
time, patients wear a temporary
tooth for cosmetic reasons.
The cost of placing the single tooth dental
between US $ 1500 - US $ 2200, depending on the specific situation.

4: Placement of the Abutment
step involves inserting in the abutment into the dental implant. The
abutment is the piece which will ultimately anchor the visible tooth.
Depending on whether the dental implant abutment is standard or
customized, it can cost about US $ 650-800.
5: Placing the crown
The crown placement (the part of the tooth that's
visible above the gum line) is the next step. As with an ordinary
dental crown, this crown is well-anchored by the implanted post that is
firmly surrounded by bone, much the way a natural tooth's root
stabilizes the tooth.
The cost of a
anchored crown is
similar to a regular crown. Depending on whether it is front tooth or a
molar it can vary between US $ 1200-US $ 1350 depending on the number
of crowns being placed.
Mr. John Scott is a
dental implant patient at StarBrite Dental. Dr.
Lokhandwala placed 8 dental implants on the upper jaw for Mr. Scott.
A portion of
this cost may be
covered by dental
insurance in lieu of a 3-unit bridge which is the alternative to a
single tooth implant. 3-unit bridges require shaving down the two
adjacent teeth to the missing tooth to make a prosthesis covering all
