Patients with missing teeth may hesitate to invest in dental implants due to the cost.
We can help you use your dental insurance plan to cover as much of your treatment as possible, and we offer financing to make any remaining expenses a fit for your budget.
At Astoria Dental Group in Queens, NY, serving Long Island and greater NYC, we can help you understand these cost factors and how to budget for this solution...
So, how much will my dental implants cost?
Factors that Determine the Cost of Dental Implants
It is hard to put a price on your oral health. Having a healthy, functional smile is virtually priceless. However, we understand that costs are always a consideration when deciding to undergo major dental treatment. Various factors will influence the cost of your dental implants, including:
Before we can proceed with implant treatment, we may need to perform root canal therapy to save an existing tooth, restore an existing tooth with a filling or crown, or provide periodontal therapy to improve the health of the gums. Extractions may also be needed. In addition, bone grafting may be performed if the jaw does not have sufficient bone to support an implant, or a sinus lift may be performed if there is not enough space to accommodate the implant in the upper jaw. All of these treatments come with an additional cost.
The type of dental implant used for your procedure contributes to the price of treatment. Traditional dental implants are typically more expensive than mini dental implants, but they offer superior support for crowns, bridges, and dentures. Aside from being more affordable, mini dental implants can treat a wider range of patients; their smaller size and diameter makes them a solution for patients with some jawbone atrophy, bypassing the need for bone grafting. There are a number of other implant variables, including the material, thread type, and shape.
The number of implants needed to support your new restoration will affect the cost. It takes more time to plan and place multiple dental implants. Patients who need a single implant placed can expect to pay a lower price, while patients who require a full-arch restoration can expect to pay more for treatment. Abutment pieces are necessary to connect the restoration to each implant. These abutments will also add to the cost of treatment.
The location of the missing tooth or teeth can affect the cost of treatment. The back teeth are subject to more wear and tear, so providing a strong anchor for restorations is critical. The front teeth are not subject to as much pressure, but aesthetics are a concern since the restoration will be more visible. We will take all of this into account when developing your price quote.
The type of dental prosthetic that is placed will impact the price of treatment. Less work and materials are needed to fabricate a single crown, so this is typically the least expensive option. Full dentures will typically have a higher price. Larger restorations require more implants, which can also inflate cost.
The number of office visits needed to complete all stages of treatment can also affect your quote. We will consider how many planning appointments, surgical appointments, and check-ups will be required for successful treatment. Once we have taken all of these factors into account, from the need for preparatory procedures to the type of implant and prosthetic, we can provide you with an accurate cost estimate.

Other Factors that Affect Cost
There are other factors that affect the cost of implant treatment, including:
The Dentist's Experience and Location
A dentist with more experience and training will charge higher prices for treatment, while a dentist with less experience may offer cheaper prices. However, it is important to undergo treatment with a dentist who has the necessary skills and experience to provide beautiful and lasting results.
In addition, the location of the practice plays a role in pricing. A dentist with a practice in a rural area will often have lower operating costs than dentists in a large city.
A dentist who uses state-of-the-art technology may charge higher prices for treatment. However, it is important to consider how advanced technology can improve your treatment planning and surgery. Some of the technology that we use when designing and performing your dental implant treatment include:
- Mini Drive-Lock™ (MDL) Dental System
- SimPlant™ One-Day Dental Implants
- An On-Site Dental Lab
- Computer Smile Imaging (Smile Pix)
- Tomography Digital X-rays
Type of Sedation
Your dental implant surgery will be performed with the use of local anesthetic. At your request, you can also receive oral conscious sedation, which is one of the most affordable anesthesia options. Patients can also elect to undergo treatment under the supervision of a board-certified anesthesiologist, which is a costlier option.
I'm born and raised in Manhattan hence, I always had access to the best. In essence, very picky. So you can imagine how I was exceptionally surprised to receive equivalent expertise at Astoria Dental. I can't wait to share the results with friends, family and anyone. I'm screaming with gratitude and happiness.

Reasons to Replace Your Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
Many adults are affected by issues associated with missing teeth. They may choose to undergo more affordable treatments for tooth loss, such as traditional bridges or dentures. However, for the right candidates, implants are the superior option. Here are a few of the reasons why dental implants are often the best solution for tooth loss:
When patients suffer tooth loss, simple tasks like chewing and speaking become a challenge. Even after having traditional restorations placed, patients may still feel that the prosthetic will slip out of place when eating hard or sticky foods. Implant-supported restorations are secured within the jawbone so they remain stable when eating and speaking.
Dental implants are the only treatment that will maintain the health of your jawbone after tooth loss. When teeth are lost, they no longer stimulate the surrounding tissues, which is the signal to send blood and nutrients to the area. As a result, the jawbone can begin to degenerate, which can change your facial structure and jeopardize your oral health.
Many patients want to know how long dental implants will last. With the right care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Of course, this depends on the patient's health and aftercare. Abstaining from tobacco products and maintaining good oral hygiene prolong the lifespan of dental implants. It is important to note that crowns, bridges, and dentures will not last forever. They will eventually need to be replaced.
Many people feel self-conscious about tooth loss, particularly if the lost tooth is in a more noticeable area of the mouth. Even with traditional bridges or dentures, they may worry that the prosthetic will slip out of place in front of other people. By securing a natural-looking restoration to implants, patients can feel confident in their appearance and dental function.
Unfortunately, dental insurance plans don't typically cover the cost of dental implants because they are considered an elective solution. However, they do generally cover preventative and traditional restorative care. In many cases, the preparatory treatments performed prior to implant treatment are covered. We will check your insurance plan to determine which treatments qualify for coverage.
In addition, it is possible that insurance may cover some or all of the cost of the restoration used to replace a missing tooth or teeth.
As part of your custom quote, we will include a breakdown of any of the procedures or services that will be partially or fully covered by your insurance plan. Meanwhile, you can depend on our staff to work with your insurance carrier to secure the best possible coverage.

I'm Still Not Sure Implants Are Right for Me
What Are My Other Options?
Some patients want to know more about their alternative options before undergo implant surgery. Patients who suffer from tooth loss have three other options:
A traditional dental bridge can be used to replace a single missing tooth or up to three consecutive missing teeth. The bridge consists of artificial teeth that fill the gap, along with two dental crowns that are placed on the adjacent teeth for support.
Partials replace multiple missing teeth. The tooth loss doesn't have to be confined to one area of the mouth; this treatment can address missing teeth in various areas of your smile. Partials are fabricated with a base that fits over the dental arch; they may also be attached to adjacent teeth with clasps.
Full dentures are an option for patients who are missing all of the teeth in the upper or lower arch. This treatment involves the use of prosthetic teeth that are attached to a base. The base is crafted to precisely fit the patient's arch so it stays in place with suction and dental adhesives.
We Offer Comprehensive Care
At Astoria Dental Group, we are proud to offer a full range of treatment options for tooth loss. We invite patients to schedule a consultation at our practice so we can discuss all of your options and find the one that best suits your budget, lifestyle, and personal goals.
We urge anyone suffering with a compromised smile to schedule an appointment at our practice as soon as possible. The longer tooth loss goes untreated, the greater the impact it can have on your health. If bone loss progresses and other teeth shift out of place, it can become more expensive to restore your oral health, function, and appearance. The best way to reduce the cost of treatment is to undergo treatment as soon as possible.
