Dental Implants and Mini Dental Implants
Many of my patients are surprised to learn you don't need to see a specialist or oral surgeon to have a dental implant or mini implant placed. Dentists like me, who have gone on to take post graduate implant training, are able to place dental implants as well as mini implants right in our office.
This is great news to our patients since they can have their implants from start to finish in one office. Also, dental implant costs are significantly lower when placed by a dentist versus an oral surgeon; making dental implants a more affordable treatment. We can also offer lower cost bone grafts and extractions if needed. For more involved cases we work closely with a specialist.

Does dental insurance cover dental implants?
How much do dental implants cost?
My office likes to give patients one price for implants which includes the surgery, followup visits, abutment and the final crown. This way there are no “hidden costs” or surprises at the end. Since every insurance plan is different there is not a single price to quote. The average cash price of a dental implant, abutment and crown is about $3,800 (but can be lower depending upon how many teeth you are doing at once). If you need bone grafts or sinus lifts the cost will be different. It may be also be different if you have dental insurance.

Dental implants and dentures, bridges & partials
Dental implants and mini dental implants can be use to hold dentures, bridges and partial dentures securely in place. Many patients have a hard time keeping their dentures and partials comfortably in place all day. Even more so when they are eating hard, brittle food or even worse, sticky, chewy food.
In recent years it has become very common to use mini dental implants or full dental implants to solve this problem. The results are amazing. Imagine having your denture or partial lock into place during the day, and then be able to remove it for cleaning and sleep. Dental implants can make his possible.
