How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
Dental implants are an investment.
On the surface, dental implants look incredibly expensive, especially when they are compared to other tooth replacement methods. However, dentures and bridges, the two alternatives, typically have to be repaired or replaced every 5 to 10 years. The cost of this regular maintenance may quickly outstrip the costs of simply turning to implants, which can last a lifetime (so long as you care for them properly). They also prevent your jawbone from deteriorating—dentures and bridges can’t do that.
As your jaw deteriorates, your face shape will change. You’ll start to look older. Moreover, your existing teeth will start to grow loose. The jawbone provides the structure that holds your teeth’s roots in place. Once it’s gone, you’ll lose your other teeth as well. Keeping the rest of your teeth in your mouth is priceless.
Thus, we encourage you to think of dental implants as an investment, and not as an expense.
If you need zygomatic implants you can expect the costs to be slightly higher. Zygomatic implants are a little longer than regular implants, and they require a lot more skill and training to place.
They are designed for patients with significant bone and gum loss. The good news is that because we can provide zygomatic implants you’re only paying for one surgery—not two. Zygomatic implants are great because they allow us to skip bone graft surgeries altogether.
Dental Implant Costs And Your Insurance Coverage
The good news is most dental insurance providers cover some of the costs for dental implants. Insurance doesn’t typically cover all the expenses so you’re probably still going to have to put some money aside before you can schedule your dental implant procedure, but certainly not as much as you would if you didn’t have insurance.
In addition, many of our patients take advantage of our ability to offer Care Credit financing, which gives them the ability to pay for their dental implants with a series of affordable monthly installments. We also offer patient financing through Lending Club.

Robin my hygienist was great, she kept me informed while working with my teeth. She also was soft on my gums and made sure it was a great experience. Dr. Patel explained in detail what was needed and what was not. He was very professional and told me the risks of a tooth that I know needs a crown. Other fillings he stated looked fine and pointed it out with actual photos that were in color and blown up for me to easily see.
I truly thought this experience was a five star rating! Thank you for everything. In and out in hour and 5 min and that’s because I was engaged and talking to. If I would have talked less it could of have been done in about 45 min.

Nice about working us in for a toothache. Reasonable but safety precautions in place. Professional but kindness shown for our unique situation. Addition: My son had 4 fillings. It was a good experience for him. The estimate of cost was accurate. Also, the doctor worked quickly which is favorable for less jaw pain. I highly recommend Dental Depot, Dr. Patel!Karen Q.7/02/2020
When walking in there are strict guidelines due to Covid. You will be greeted at the front door, your temperature will be checked, and seated 6 feet apart. When taken to your room, you are required to use mouthwash and wash hands. After you are settled in your chair you can remove mask. Dr Talbot and Alexa work very hard in trying to provide top notch service. I barely feel the numbing needles. The procedure went great. Would trust them with my kids.julia l.6/30/2020
This was my first time at the Dental Depot. From the moment I arrived, I was greeted by friendly staff. My hygienist, Nicole, put me at ease from the moment I arrived and explained the process as she went along. She is wonderful!
I was then greeted by Dr. Patel. He was very courteous and also made me feel at ease. He took the time to answer all of my questions.
I highly recommend anyone coming here. If you have anxiety when you go to the dentist, like I do, it will disappear once you are going through the process.Lamar J.6/15/2020
