The Cost of Dental Implants
Because dental implants are technically an optional procedure, insurance companies will not always cover the treatment. James M. Stein, DMD, can break down the cost of dental implants during a consultation at our Boston, MA, practice, as well as discuss financing options.
Implant placement is an individualized procedure, so the cost may vary significantly from patient to patient. The total price will depend on the number of implants you receive, the size of your restoration, and other factors. If you decide to pursue treatment, we offer a number of affordable financing options. Most patients agree that the cost of dental implants is offset by the numerous benefits they offer: dental implants are an investment in the future and in a patient's quality of life.
What Impacts the Cost of Dental Implants?
Dr. Stein always offers personalized treatment, and precision customization is especially important when it comes to dental implants. When designing your treatment plan, Dr. Stein will consider your health needs and cosmetic goals. Then you can discuss the various factors that will affect the price of your treatment:
- How many teeth you are missing- If you are missing a single tooth, you will require only one implant. Dr. Stein may also use implants to replace several or even all of your teeth. Implants are priced individually, so the number of implants you receive will directly impact total treatment cost. Additionally, dentures cost more than individual crowns.
- The restorative materials you choose- We offer dental restorations made from an array of substances. For the most authentic look, we suggest state-of-the-art ceramic, which is very durable and provides an incredibly lifelike sparkle. You may wish to pay slightly more for advanced materials that offer life-long cosmetic benefits.

- Number of office visits- Frequently, Dr. Stein can provide implants and your final restoration in just two visits. However, if you require extra appointments, this may increase treatment cost.
- Additional procedures- Before receiving dental implants, you may require a preparatory bone graft, sinus lift, or similar procedure. Further surgeries, as well as the type of anesthesia used, will impact total treatment cost.
