Looking into how much dental implants cost and getting a straight answer can be frustrating. But there is a reason for that.

I’m Dr. Kirk Johnson. Thanks for stopping to read my blog. I know it can be frustrating to look for the cost of getting a dental implant procedure done and finding nothing solid here on the internet. Let me take a moment to explain why most dental websites don’t publish the cost of tooth implants.

Happy middle-aged man adds money to his piggy bank. He's saved for dental implants but now needs to find out how much it will cost

1. The Math Might Come Out Higher Than it Should
The number of teeth being replaced may be more than the number of implants needed to cover that section of the mouth. Tooth implant dentists here in Anchorage, Alaska, want to offer accurate pricing rather than scare you away with higher estimates. It takes an uncomplicated consultation to review dental history, assess needs and determine a treatment plan. This could mean a more efficient surgery with fewer implants.

2. There Might Be Something Better For Your Mouth
While dental implants really are the state of the art in tooth replacement, much better than a bridge or denture, sometimes the technique won’t be what you thought it was going to be. If your heart is set on implants or if you’ve been told by others in Southern Alaska, Wasilla, or Palmer that’s what you should get, we can help to explain the pros and cons of this path.

3. Supply Costs and Lab Costs Change

A ballpark number might be possible to post on the internet but the changing cost of supplies and lab fees make it impossible to guarantee an exact price for full mouth dental implants. Dentists who offer implants can accurately calculate dental implant surgery costs based on current costs when you come in for a consultation.

4. Insurance Policies Change

The cost of your dental implants in Anchorage might be affected by your insurance. In the past, dental insurance didn’t cover implants at all. Now, many do, but the level and type of coverage is so variable that we won’t know how it affects you until we see your policy.
