The overall cost of dental teeth implants is based on several factors. Dental implant placement comprises of 3 or 4 individual steps.

  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:

Quick Free Consultation Request Form

Initial Dental Implant Consultation

Dental implant consultations are a critical part of the process of placing dental implants in any patient. Dr. Lokhandwala will evaluate the condition 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 can be 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 is covered.

Bone Grafts or Sinus Lifts – If Required

If Dr. Lokhandwala determines that the bone condition or 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 would be performed in our offices by Dr. Lokhandwala.

In most cases this portion may not be required.

Placement of the Dental Implant (Titanium

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 Implants with screw-like threads such as those made by Nobel Biocare or Endopore are treated with 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 implant is typically between US $ 1500 – US $ 2200, depending on the specific situation.

After the placement of the implant, 2 additional steps
namely the placement of the abutment and the
dental crown is required to complete the treatment.

Placement of the Abutment

This 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.

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 dental implant 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.

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 three teeth.

Mr. John Scott is a dental implant patient at StarBrite Dental. Dr. Lokhandwala placed 8 dental implants on the upper jaw for Mr. Scott.

The overall cost of a single uncomplicated implant (all inclusive, placement, abutment + crown) is therefore between US $ 3400 – 3800. This cost is closely comparable to the total cost of traditional bridges, but offer much greater functional freedom and a significantly better esthetic result.

For a limited time only, we are offering our new patient’s an excellent pricing for placing a single uncomplicated Tooth Implant+Abutment+Crown which is substantially lower then than the price range above. Please call us or email us to find out about our offer and payment choices

Patient Review

Based on a co-worker=’s recommendation from my husband=’s work, I chose Dr. Lokhandwala to install my implants. It is a somewhat new and complicated procedure. Since I had no such experience and did not know how well everything would work, I decided to install only one implant at my first surgery, though I needed two implants. The whole procedure (preparation, anesthesia, surgery itself) took about 2 hours and for the most part was painless. To my surprise, the post-surgery recovery was virtually painless too, only a minor discomfort for a few days, no bleeding, swelling or bruises. There was no need to take antibiotics or use painkillers. I healed well and fast. If I knew I would go through this kind of experience, I would definitely install both implants at once. I believe Dr. Lokhandwala did an excellent job. She undoubtedly deserves to be chosen as your doctor for implant installation.

Treatment Length with Dr. Lokhandwala: 4 months.
