Dental Implant Financing Info
Are dental implants worth the price?
Dental implants have been available for several decades. However, for most patients, they are still a relatively new concept. When considering the cost of dental implants and comparing quotes, there are several important points that should be kept in mind.
When comparing the cost of dental implants to other tooth replacement methods such as dentures and bridges, it is important to take into consideration the longevity offered by dental implants that is not always afforded by other, more traditional methods.
While dentures and bridges are initially less expensive, their affordability can be short-lived. Because these older methods require repair and replacement every 5-10 years, they are often more expensive over time. By contrast, dental implants, when properly placed and cared for, can last a lifetime.
A Natural-Looking, Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth Request an Appointment
Jaw Bone Health
Over time, when a tooth is missing, the jaw bone deteriorates. So while a denture or bridge may seem to function similarly to a tooth, underneath the surface damage is being done to the jaw bone and ultimately to the structure of the face. This can result in the distortion of the shape of a person’s face, leading to additional cosmetic costs down the road.
On the other hand, dental implants are made of titanium, which actually integrates with the jaw bone, strengthening it and stimulating bone growth. This preserves the natural strength and quality of the mouth, lessening problems in the future.
Quality of Life
Dental implants can be seen as a long-term investment not only in terms of money, but also in terms of quality of life. A dental implant is the closest thing to a natural tooth. In addition to allowing the patient to eat the same healthy foods he or she has always enjoyed, it also eliminates the day-to-day hassles and possible embarrassment that are frequently caused by dentures.
Comparing Dental Implant Quotes
There are several steps (and often multiple professionals) involved in the placement of a dental implant. When comparing quotes, it’s important to factor in the cost of each of these steps:
- Exams/office visits
- Tooth/root extraction
- Bone grafting
- Placement of the titanium root (the “dental implant”)
- Placement of the crown
- X-rays, pre/post operative care
Financing for Dental Implants
First, check with your dental insurance carrier to see what portion, if any, of dental implants they cover.
There are health care credit companies that offer no-interest and low-interest loans for medical procedures including dental implants.
Dental Implants are an investment in your health as well as your appearance. A full set of teeth makes eating a pleasure again, making it easier to eat a balanced, healthy diet. A full set of teeth also preserves the contours of the face, keeping you from looking old before your time.

Patient Review by Diane K
Saw Dr. Goldberg about 5 years ago, had to have 2 teeth extracted, bone graft, 2 dental implants seated. He was AWESOME! I was put to sleep and never felt anything! I never even knew it was done! The office worked w the 2 insurances I had at the time, and made payments on the difference. Dr. Goldberg is THE best oral maxillofacial surgeon ever! Great practice!

You will not find a more friendly, attentive, caring and professional Dr. (including all fields) than Dean Whitman. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I am what is called a "white knuckler" meaning I have a fear of dentists. That is not the case with Dr. Dean Whitman and his staff.

I’ve had lots of dental implants and thus one was amazing. I went in for an extraction and Dr suggested getting the implant at the same time. -one appointment and sedation, hardly any pain, no swelling. Couldn’t have been any better
