The Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants fall under the category of restorative dentistry, and as such most dental insurance plans will cover some or all of the cost of treatment. At the dental practice of Dr. John Goodman 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.
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.

Dental Implant Timeline
Treatment typically falls into several phases. However, if you suffer from gum disease or are lacking in jawbone strength, you may require some preparatory treatments for optimum implant longevity.
Before and After
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 scheduling a consultation with Dr. Goodman so the two of you can go over your medical history, concerns, and your 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.
Some factors to be considered:
Poor Jaw Density
If you have been missing teeth for a long time, the bone in your jaw deteriorates and may become too weak to support implants. In these cases, we can offer bone grafting to restore the lost tissue and strengthen your jawbone.
Smoking inhibits your body's ability to heal properly and increases the risk of implant failure. If you smoke, you should quit for several months before surgery and plan to stop for good.
Healthy gums are essential for both your natural teeth and dental implants. If you are suffering from gum disease, we offer periodontal treatments to create a healthy foundation for your implant.
Diabetes and other autoimmune diseases increase the risks of surgery and inhibit healing. Be sure to tell the dentist about these health issues. On a positive note, if your diabetes is under control, your success rate climbs to rates equal to those who do not have the disease.
