The Care You Deserve, at a Cost You Can Afford
Dental implants are the best tooth replacement option in dentistry, and the only permanent solution for a lifetime of smile aesthetics, dental function, and proper health. The overall cost of dental implants, however, can concern patients as they do cost more than removable options like dental bridges or dentures. Our goal is to provide you with the dental care your smile needs, at a cost you can afford—and this includes comprehensive dental implant care. If you are concerned about the cost of dental implants, you are not alone, and our Milford, MA team is here to help you choose a treatment plan that works for you. Our decades of experience in implant dentistry and treatment planning set us apart as one of the few practices in our area able to provide you with the best options for your needs, all at a cost that fits within your financial budget.
Phasing Treatment to Optimize Affordability
We generally separate your dental implants treatment into three main phases: tooth extraction and bone grafting; surgical placement of your dental implants; and restoration with a dental crown, bridge, or full-arch prosthesis. To fit within your budget and the best interests of your oral health, we can lengthen the time between these phases to make your treatment process more affordable. Our treatment coordinators have years of experience specifically planning and phasing your implant treatment to ensure that these goals are met and you feel comfortable throughout the process. Your current oral condition and your future smile goals—information we gather in your consultations—all help better determine the final cost of your dental implants.

How much do dental implants cost?
Please call to make an appointment to determine your treatment plan because there are several factors that influence the cost of a dental implant, including:
- The quality, amount, and location of bone.
- The number of teeth that need to be replaced and the type of artificial teeth that will be used.
- The type of implant(s) that will be appropriate.
- The number of implants needed to support these teeth.
What are dental implants?
Think of dental implants as artificial tooth roots. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns.
A connector, known as an abutment, is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns. The crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth.
Modern dental implants have been used successfully for over 40 years. They are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth, and even better, they allow these new teeth to feel, look and function naturally.
Can I replace all my teeth with dental implants?
Yes, when all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, there are three option:
- Bridges on implants, which is a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants.
- All-on-4 or All-on-5, hybrid, or fixed-detachable dentures, which is a bridge-type prosthesis that attaches to multiple implants.
- Removable implant denture, which is a denture that snaps down onto the implants and can be removed for daily cleansing. Typically, 2 or 3 implants to each arch are needed.
How many implants are needed for the whole mouth?
The number of implants that are needed to replace all teeth won’t be the same for everyone, but usually five dental implants in the upper jaw, and four to five implants in the lower jaw.
