Dental implants are small titanium cylinders that are placed into the jawbone to replace the roots of missing teeth. They have two primary uses: to replace missing teeth (either single or multiple) or to help hold dentures in place. While dental implants are typically made from titanium, they are also being made out of zirconia.

One of the most confusing issues to consumers are the components of dental implants. Quite often a dental team and patient will refer to a full tooth replacement as an “implant.” Technically, this is not correct. The full tooth replacement is comprised of three parts: the implant, the abutment, and the crown. The implant is also known as a fixture or body. This is the “screw” or “rod” that is placed into the jawbone. The “crown” or “cap” is the actual tooth you see in your mouth. There is a hidden component, called an abutment, which is a connector between the implant and crown.

After the procedure, the jawbone grows around the posts, so that they become permanently anchored in place. In some cases, dental implants can be placed on the same day as a tooth extraction, while for others, periodontal treatment and other procedures are required before implantation. It’s important to speak to your dental implant dentist to develop a treatment plan that’s right for you and may include any necessary pre-treatments.

Dental Implant Options

Dr. Ira Goldberg of Morris County Dental Associates explains the versatility of dental implants and the variety of dental implant options that are readily available.

Tooth Implants can help replace:

  • A single tooth
  • Multiple teeth
  • A full jaw of teeth
  • Or help stabilize dentures

A dentist with advanced training in dental implants, like Dr. Goldberg, can determine which type is right for you.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Dr. Goldberg always tries to answer a direct question with a direct answer. That’s why we will tell you the placement of a single dental implant costs between $900 and $1,950. It is critical to note that this is just for the implant, not for the implant, abutment, and crown/bridge/denture.

There are many variables involved when determining the fee for an implant and its restoration: Are you in need of a standard implant or a mini-implant? How many implants do you need? What is going on top of that implant: a crown, denture, or bridge? Do you require other procedures such as extractions or bone grafting?

As you can see, there are multiple variables that go along with the simple question of “how much does a dental implant cost.” This is why we offer and recommend a free consultation to discuss your particular situation.

When you are comparing costs or receiving consultations, be sure both you and the person you’re having a conversation with are talking about the same thing. If you ask, “how much does an implant cost,” you may then receive an answer to just that: the implant. Not the implant, abutment, and crown.



Procedure Risks

Titanium is a biocompatible material, meaning the body accepts it. There are no reports of allergic reaction to the titanium alloys used for dental implants. Success rates are generally between 92% and 99%, depending upon the type of implant used, its location in the mouth, a person’s health, and the job it is being asked to perform. Primary reasons why they may fail include uncontrolled medical conditions and failure of patients to return to the dental office for maintenance. Although it is rare, there may be no detectable reason for implant “failure.”

Choosing A Highly Qualified Dentist

While there are many things that you should consider when looking for an implant dentist, basing your decision on experience, training, and technology will help you to find the best provider for your needs. Dr. Goldberg has 20 years of experience in placing and restoring implants, and he holds numerous credentials in the field, including a diploma from the American Board of Oral Implantology. At our office, we utilize the latest in imaging technology, including 3-D scans and RFA (resonance frequency analysis) to develop treatment plans and place implants, ensuring the best results.
