An Examination of the Costs of Dental Implants

You can be sure, the motivations behind rock-bottom prices promoted for dental implants are rooted in marketing. Yes, you can get dental implants for as low as $2,000 apiece. However, promoting only the bare minimum required leaves out the cost to have the dental implants placed, options for higher quality materials and variables such as the possible need for supporting procedures. Let’s take a look at all of the primary things that factor into the cost of dental implants in Manhattan.

Cost of the Parts

Dental implants are typically made of three primary parts: a titanium implant post, a tooth-shaped “crown” and an “abutment” that connects the implant post and crown.

When you see ads promoting dental implants “starting at $1,000” or something similarly too good to be true, it’s likely they’re only giving you the price of the implant posts – which can range in price from $1,000 to $3,000, depending on whether the implant post is pure titanium or one of its alloys.

Add that $1,000 to $3,000 to the cost of the crown and abutment, which themselves range between $1,000 and $3,000 collectively and you could be looking at anything between $2,000 and $6,000 for the cost of the dental implant parts. And you’ll also need to cover the cost of the procedures to place them.

Cost of Procedures

Along with the price of the parts, you have to also factor in the cost of having your dental implants placed. That price will vary by dentist’s office, especially in Manhattan. And you’ll need more than just the relatively short implant placement procedure. You’ll also need X-Rays and other imaging, along with consultations to help your dentist develop a treatment plan.

You might also need a supporting procedure such as a sinus lift to make space for the dental implants or a bone graft to replace lost jawbone at the site of where the implants will be placed.
