Cost of Dental Implants – Williamstown, NJ
How to Prepare for Your Future Tooth Replacement
When we talk to patients about dental implants, one of the most common questions we get involves the cost of treatment and the best ways to pay for it. It’s no secret that dental implants are expensive, however, the benefits that come with treatment are truly second-to-none. Overall, Dr. Kassem and the team members at iSmile Dental Arts are confident that once your implants are placed, integrated and restored, you’ll feel good about your long-term investment not just for your daily life, but your oral health as well. Contact our office today and schedule a consultation to get started!
The Cost of The Implant Posts
One of the most significant factors in determining dental implant treatment cost is the number of implants you intend on having placed. Not only does Dr. Kassem need to consider the material used to make the posts, but he needs to create a treatment plan to make the placement of said implants predictable and successful. Furthermore, placing four implants for an implant-retained denture is going to take more time to plan for then a single implant to replace one tooth. The good news is the more implants you need, the cheaper each implant will be.
Preparatory Treatments to Consider
During your consultation, Dr. Kassem will need to examine the current amount of bone tissue present in your jaw prior to starting treatment. The amount of bone volume is particularly important to ensuring long-term success and proper integration of the post. If you don’t have enough bone available for the number of implants you need placed, you’ll need to have a bone graft performed. This utilizes bone from either an outside source or from your own body to expand the amount of tissue present.
The Different Types of Restorations
Lastly, the complexity of the restoration needed to restore your smile largely varies for a number of reasons. A single implant-retained crown is always going to be cheaper than an implant-retained bridge or denture, both of which require significantly more planning and preparation to ensure optimal comfort and an even bite (which is very important for preventing teeth grinding or jaw pain in the future.)
Payment Plans for Affordable Treatment
While most dental insurance plans do not cover dental implant treatment, there are some plans that may cover a portion for certain aspects of your treatment, including preparatory bone grafts.

Regardless of the cost of your treatment, it’s important to note that even when compared to cheaper tooth replacement options, dental implants are more cost-effective. This is because they do not require the same level of long-term maintenance as dental bridges or dentures. They also don’t have the same lifespan compared to implants, largely because of their longevity and durability.
