6 Factors That Can Affect Dental Implant Cost

Your dentist in Fairfax, VA, will inform you of every step of your dental implant procedure, from the initial 3D digital scanning of your jawbone to determine its health to the creation and placement of customized, high-quality restorations. You and your dentist will also discuss the cost of those implant-related procedures. Contact us online or by phone for a free dental implant consultation at our state-of-the-art Fairfax, VA, dental practice to learn more. Implant cost factors include:
Number 1

Number of Implants

The cost of your dental implants will depend on how many implants Dr. Charles D. Kirksey, Milan Simanek, or Touraj Kamali need to place in your jawbone. One implant to replace a single tooth will cost less than the multiple implants required to replace a full mouth of missing teeth.
Number 2

Type and Number of Restorations

A single implant-supported denture for the upper or lower arch will cost less than a full-mouth restoration to replace all your teeth. An implant-supported crown, partial denture, or bridge each have their own price ranges. A crown requiring just one implant will cost less than a denture requiring six to eight implants.

Number 3


Many patients are anxious about dental surgery. Sedation offered by our compassionate dentists can keep you stay relaxed and pain-free. However, sedation on top of numbing anesthetic will add to the implant procedure cost.

Number 4

Insurance Coverage

Most dental insurance plans do not cover the cost of implant surgery, or the cost of the implant itself. However, they will probably cover some of your restoration costs. Our friendly, knowledgeable team in Fairfax, VA, will find out your exact coverage. 

Number 5

Pre-Treatment Procedures

Severely decayed teeth may need to be extracted before the dental implant procedure can begin. Issues like gum disease will have to be treated first, as well. A bone graft may even be needed if you do not have enough healthy jawbone to support implants. These procedures will add to your treatment costs.

Number 6


The abutment is the connector between an implant and its tooth restoration. In some cases, the price of the abutment may not be included in the cost of the implant itself.

What Will Dental Insurance Cover? And What Requires Paying Out of Pocket?

Dental implants and abutments are not covered by basic insurance, but your restoration and any preparatory work is probably covered under your plan.

Dental Implants Can Save You Both Time and Money It Pays to Choose A Premium Tooth Replacement Option

This may sound like a bold statement, but investing in a premium restorative treatment like dental implants now can actually help you spend less money and less time in a dental chair in the years to come. Here are some more reasons why dental implants are a wise investment:

Far Fewer Denture Adjustments

Dental implants are the only restorative dentistry treatment that can halt the jaw atrophy that happens after losing a tooth. If you have worn traditional dentures, or know people who have, you probably know that regular adjustments are essential to maintaining a proper fit as the jaw continues to change shape over time. With implant-supported dentures, you may need some initial adjustments, but you can expect your jaw and your dentures to maintain a precise and comfortable fit with minimal intervention from your dentist.

Avoid the Need for Bone Grafting

If you are wearing a traditional bridge or denture, the bone beneath it is slowly shrinking due to a lack of stimulation normally provided by the roots of each tooth. Eventually, a bone graft will probably become necessary in order to maintain your oral health. However, by choosing implants, your jaw will maintain healthy bone tissue, eliminating the need for this costly and invasive dental procedure in the future. Even if you are only missing one tooth, an implant can provide vast oral health benefits.

Keep Dentures Out of Harm's Way

Traditional dentures must be removed and soaked every night. This puts your replacement teeth at risk of being dropped or otherwise making contact with hard surfaces that can easily cause damage. But dentures supported by implants stay firmly in place at all times, except during your six-month checkups when your dentist will remove them for deep cleaning. This can help you denture last as long as possible so you don't have to spend money on repairs or replacements.
