Dental implants are the best solution for replacing missing teeth. Not only do they look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth, they also stop bone loss, keeping your bite strong and preventing the premature aging caused by facial collapse. Of course, even knowing all the benefits, many patients wonder: how much do dental implants cost on the Upper West Side? Are they worth it?
Below, we answer these and some other common questions our patients have about dental implants.
How much do dental implants cost on the Upper West Side?
As with all things in life, you get what you pay for — dental implants have a wide range of price points, but at Glassman Dental Care, we offer celebrity smiles, crafting each of our dental implant restorations with the highest quality materials for exceptional results. You’ll never get anything less than the red carpet treatment at our practice.
The cost of a single-tooth dental implant , implant abutment and implant crown on the Upper West Side ranges between $3500 and $6000. The price increases from there if you need an implant-supported bridge or implant-supported dentures. When supplemental procedures are needed—bone grafting, extractions, or sinus lifts — you can expect your total cost to increase further.
Are dental implants worth it?
Absolutely. At Glassman Dental Care, we believe everyone should feel confident when they smile and dental implants restore that sense of confidence in countless patients. With dental implants, your restoration will be strong, beautiful, and realistic looking, replacing your missing tooth in both function and appearance.
How long do dental implants last?
Your dental implants are designed to last a lifetime. Just like the roots of natural teeth, dental implants are osseointegrated into the jaw, making them a permanent solution for missing teeth. Depending on your age, the material you choose, and the amount of wear it receives, you may need to replace the restoration attached to your dental implant at some point, but the implant itself should never need to be replaced with proper care.
Who is not a candidate for dental implants?
Most patients are excellent candidates for dental implants, but there are a few circumstances in which the procedure is not recommended. If you have a habit of severe teeth grinding or jaw clenching, you may damage your dental implants; we don’t recommend dental implant surgery until you break this habit. Patients with uncontrolled gum disease or diabetes and people who take immunosuppressant drugs should not have dental implant surgery. If you use tobacco products, we will ask that you quit before getting dental implants, as smoking can complicate your recovery.
Can you get a temporary tooth while waiting for an implant?
Many of our patients are celebrities, so we understand the importance of making sure your smile is camera-ready even when you’re waiting for your permanent dental implant restoration. We offer several highly realistic temporary solutions so you don’t have to go without a tooth between appointments.
