Dental Implants Cost
Implants are considered one of the best investments you can make in your oral health following the loss of a tooth.
Though dental implants have many restorative and cosmetic benefits, you may be worried about their price.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
Number of Implants
If you have widespread tooth loss, you may benefit from having several dental implants placed. This will raise your overall price, but dental implants have many unique benefits, including the ability to prevent jawbone atrophy following tooth loss.
Type of Restorations
Dental implants replace tooth roots. To restore a tooth completely, you will also need a crown, the part of the tooth you see above the gumline. A single implant supporting a crown costs significantly less than several implants and a larger restoration, like a denture. The various materials used for restorations are also priced differently, affecting the cost
Before you can receive a dental implant, your mouth must be healthy enough to support it. Problems like decay, gum disease, and significant bone loss in the jaw will have to be corrected before you can be considered for dental implants. Once these problems have been addressed, we can place your implants.
Dental implants placed in the front of the mouth may be more expensive because they require greater precision to achieve a natural look. Additionally, our dentist takes special care with the dental material selected for the "smile zone" to ensure your restoration blends in with the surrounding natural teeth. We want people to see your beautiful smile, not notice your dental work.
Additional Fees You May Encounter
There is no standard price for dental implants because no two procedures are the same, just as no two people are the same. Though the implants and restorations will make up a significant portion of your cost, there may also be fees for:
- Digital scans of your teeth and jawbones
- Extraction of problem teeth
- Bone grafts or sinus lifts
- Gum disease treatments
- Prescription medication

Will Dental Insurance Cover My Implants?
Dental insurance doesn't typically cover the cost of dental implants, abutments, or implant surgery, but it may help pay for the restoration. Fortunately, Peak Family Dentistry in Albuquerque, NM, works with CareCredit®, a flexible financing company that allows patients to pay out-of-pocket costs in affordable monthly installments.
Don't let costs deter you from receiving this life-changing treatment. Many patients consider dental implants a worthwhile investment because they can prevent serious oral health problems. If cared for properly, implants can last a lifetime.
