The Cost of Dental Implants

all-on-4 denture

At our dental office in Kansas City, MO, a single-tooth implant replacement can cost between $3,500 and $4,500. An All-on-4 procedure to replace a full arch could cost between $25,000 and $40,000. Your final costs will also be influenced by how many teeth you are replacing and whether you require preparatory dentistry as part of your treatment plan.

Dental implants fall under the category of restorative dentistry, but dental insurance tends to handle them uniquely. You will likely receive some level of coverage for your implant-supported restorations, but implants themselves are not typically covered. 

Although it can seem like a high price to pay, the expert dental care provided by Dr. Goodman and his oral surgeon partners can produce results that last a lifetime. Traditional dentures or bridges may be cheaper initially, but they do not last as long as implants, do not maintain jawbone strength, and are not as secure.

Dr. Goodman and his team will work with you to make your treatment as affordable as possible. We can coordinate with your insurance provider to ensure you are accessing every available benefit of your plan, and we offer financing plans through CareCredit® that can allow you to split out-of-pocket expenses into manageable monthly installments.

We work with an implant team at the oral surgeon's office that uses the latest in cone-beam digital scanning to plan the precise placement of each implant for optimum results and longevity.

"Dr. Goodman is excellent and everybody who works there is so nice. Complete smile transformation for me. Life changing." Andrew Hunt

Lifestyle and Health Conditions Can Affect Your Candidacy

Your health and lifestyle choices can affect whether you can be considered a candidate for dental implants. If you are considering implants, the first step is requesting a consultation with Dr. Goodman so the two of you can go over your medical history, concerns, and treatment goals. You will also want to let the doctor know what medications you take.

It's important to be upfront about health issues because they can affect how successful dental implants will be for you. For example, if you have undergone radiation therapy for head or neck cancer, that can slightly increase the risk of implant failure.

However, even if you are not a prime candidate for implants now, dental treatments are available that can help you qualify for implants.

See How a Dental Implant Is Placed Into the Jawbone Take a Closer Look at the Dental Implant Process

The implant is inserted, followed by a connecting abutment piece, and topped off with a crown, bridge, or denture restoration. These three pieces come together during implant surgery, resulting in a stunningly complete smile.

Treatments You May Need Before Getting Dental Implants

If you suffer from gum disease or are lacking in jawbone strength, you may require some preparatory treatments for optimum implant longevity.


Treating Dental Health Problems

If you have periodontal disease, the gum tissue inflammation must be treated before placing dental implants. This reduces the risk of implant failure following oral surgery. We may also perform tooth extractions on any remaining teeth that are decayed or compromised to accommodate an implant-supported restoration.

Bone Grafting for Jawbone Atrophy

If you lack sufficient jawbone density due to bone loss, hard tissue grafts can be placed to build up your bone structure. This provides a stable base that can support a dental implant or multiple implants. We can discuss the bone graft process and the surgical recovery times with you in more detail during a consultation.

Dental Implant Treatment Timeline What to Expect During the Implant Dentistry Process

If you think dental implants could be the right treatment for you, your treatment plan at our Kansas City practice will roughly follow the timeline below.

We've helped many tooth loss patients in and around Kansas City by placing dental implants.
We've helped many tooth loss patients in and around Kansas City by placing dental implants.


Contact us online or call (816) 842-8585 to request an initial consultation with Dr. Goodman. Our dentist will examine your smile to determine if dental implants are right for you. He may take photos or digital scans using a cone beam scanner to create a 3-D model of your bite. If Dr. Goodman determines you are a good candidate for dental implants, he will refer you to a trusted oral surgeon in the Kansas City area for implant surgery.


First Surgery

When you come in for your first surgery, the oral surgeon can provide sedation to help you relax. Using an advanced digital scan of your bite for precision, the surgeon will make incisions in your gums to place the titanium implants. After the implants are positioned, the surgeon will stitch the incisions shut.


First Healing Period

The first healing period takes somewhere between three and six months. During this time, the process of osseointegration takes place. This is when the implant fuses with your jawbone. If needed, we can provide a temporary restoration to wear during this interim healing period.


Abutment Placement

After the first healing period, the oral surgeon will attach an abutment to the implant. The abutment is the connector between the artificial tooth root (the implant) and your restoration. Again, sedation is available if you desire.


Second Healing Period

After the abutment is placed, a short healing period of about two weeks is required for the gums to properly heal around the abutment.


Restoration Placement

You will finally be ready to receive your crown, bridge, or denture. Dr. Goodman will attach the restoration to the abutment and ensure it is seated properly for optimum performance and longevity. He will also take care to see that it is comfortable and seamlessly blends in with your natural teeth. You will walk out of our dental office with a newly restored smile.

Implant Placement Recovery

Dr. Goodman will provide all implant patients with detailed instructions on post-surgical recovery. Some generally do's and don'ts while healing from dental implant surgery include:

  • Avoid touching or disturbing the soft tissue around the implant for the first 24 hours after surgery
  • Use a cold compress against your lips or face to soothe any discomfort or swelling
  • If needed, take over-the-counter pain relievers as directed for your pain
  • Avoid using a drinking straw until instructed as the suction can affect the clotting of the surgical site
  • Eat soft, lukewarm foods and be sure to chew on the opposite side of your mouth if possible

If you notice any excessive bleeding or develop a fever as you are healing from oral surgery, be sure to contact us right away so we can address these issues accordingly.


Looking to Address More Than Just Missing Teeth? Consider Full Mouth Reconstruction With Dr. Goodman

If you have missing teeth but also want to treat other dental issues that affect the form and function of your smile, like decay, damaged teeth, or gum disease, full mouth reconstruction may be right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

Q. Is dental implant surgery painful?

While dental implant surgery may sound intimidating, we make the process comfortable by offering sedation. Thanks to sedation, dental implant surgery is virtually painless. You may feel some discomfort as you heal, as this is a surgical process. Dr. Goodman may prescribe pain medication or advise you to take over-the-counter pain medication when discomfort arises during the healing process.

Q. What preparatory procedures do you perform?

To qualify for dental implants, you need adequate bone density in your jaw. We can coordinate bone grafting and sinus lift procedures to help you qualify for dental implant treatment.

Q. Why are dental implants made with titanium?

Titanium is the most commonly used material to craft dental implants and the material of choice for our Kansas City dental office. Titanium is biocompatible with the body, meaning it's not likely to cause harm to your surrounding tissue. It's also a metal that is strongly resistant to corrosion, which adds to its long lifespan.   

Q. Will I have to go without teeth while my implants heal?

Dr. Goodman can place temporary restorations at our practice immediately after your dental implant surgery. These temporary restorations allow you to enjoy a complete set of teeth while your permanent restoration is crafted.
