How Much Are
Dental Implants?

No Dental Insurance For Having A Tooth Pulled

The cost of dental implants prevents many people from selecting them as a treatment option to replace missing or decayed teeth.

Dentures are more affordable, even though dental implants may be more comfortable.

But how much do dental implants cost without dental insurance vs. with a 1Dental dental savings plan? You’ll be surprised at how much you can save.

Tooth Implant Cost Comparison: No Dental Insurance vs. Dental Savings Plans

The cost of multiple and single dental implants depends on a few factors:

1. Location of the dental implant in the mouth (anterior, posterior)

2. Where you live (prices vary by state)

3. How many implants are needed (do you need a single implant or multiple dental implants?)

4. Type of implant you choose or your dentist recommends.

Below is a price breakdown for anything you might need for a dental implant procedure (single tooth extractions, dental implants, bridges and crowns) without dental insurance vs. using 1Dental’s Careington Care 500 plan.

Since many implants require a specialist called a prosthodontist, the Dental Access plan (powered by the Aetna Dental Access network) can often provide higher savings. Savings vary by dentist, but range from 15-50% whether you see a General dentist or specialist. This quickly adds up to thousands of dollars in savings and is a simple addition to the Care 500 plan.

What Is the Dental Implants Process

There are many moving parts involved with dental implants, and it typically takes about five months to complete the implant in the lower jaw and six months to complete one in the upper jaw. Below you can see what’s needed for the dental implant and a brief overview of how the process works.

  • First Consultation
  • Tooth Extraction
  • Dental Implant Placement
  • Placement of Healing Collar
  • Dental Crown Placement

First Consultation

Before any work can be done, you’ll need to visit a prosthodontist or a general dentist with training in placement and restoration of dental implants. A comprehensive examination will need to be conducted first. This examination will help your dentist determine what needs to be done during surgery.

Tooth Extraction

If there are any decaying teeth that need to be removed, this step will come first. Your general dentist should be able to perform this task.

Implant Placement

Once there is enough bone to hold the implant (bone grafting may be needed), the first procedure will be scheduled so your dentist or prosthodontist can place the implant in your jaw.

The Dental Implant

Three parts make up the tooth implant:

The Implant
which is placed in the upper or lower jawbone
The Abutment
which is attached to the implant using a screw. The abutment connects the implant and the crown.
The Restoration
which is the crown. It is screwed or cemented onto the abutment.

Placement of Healing Collar

After the implants are fused with the bone, the second surgery will be scheduled. During this second surgery, your surgeon or dentist will check the implant and then place a healing collar on the top of the implant. Once the tissue heals around this collar, the collar is removed and the abutment and a temporary crown is screwed into the implant.

Crown Placement

When the temporary crown has been in place for four to six weeks, your dentist will have you come in to get the permanent crown put on – which has been at the lab being made.

Conclusion

While implants provide a good long-term solution, they can be very involved and costly. The Care 500 plan offers 20% off at specialists immediately, but the Dental Access plan gives 15-50% savings per visit, including implants and additional procedures.
