2 dental implants WITH bone grafting, 1 broke in 3 months
Amount: $13,000.00 not covered by insurance

Type of Graft: cadeaverDentist/Periodontist: Laporta
A year ago, I had (2) teeth pulled, and bone grafting for dental implants. Apparently I have bone loss and this was to ensure no movement. January 2014, I go in for the actual impants using IV sedation. ($1,500.00)
May 2014, I am told I am ready for the (2) crowns.
September 2014, (1) impant is wiggly. My regular dentist did an x-ray after he realized the crown was NOT wiggly. The x-ray showed BONE LOSS around the now wiggly implant. My dentist says, "I have never seen this before". I am asking, "where did the bone I paid for go?" Now the periodontist, wants to "explore" to see if he can fix it. He wants me to take halcion and novacaine. He flat out said, he did not want to pay (himself) for the anesthesia, even though I PAID for it, for the procedure. He admitted, he also, "never saw this happen". The crown cannot be used again either. This is so NOT FAIR. Even Public Health thought that was being reasonable. I have no health factors that caused this to fail. We went over that too.

The dentist said I needed 7cc's of bone @ $1100 per cc. Is this a reasonable amount? This was to secure an implant the was infected.

Type of Graft: Injected cadaver bone GrafDentist/Periodontist: Dentist
My husband was traveling, had issues with a tooth. He got prices on the extraction of the bad tooth, preping for implant & the implant. They wanted a deposit up front even though he was filling out the necessary paperwork for a Care Credit loan.(First alarm!!) After a week of antibiotics, he went back for follow up & to get bad tooth extracted. At the appointment they had an estimated charge for everything which was very high-$12,000 for 2 teeth. He called me & we decided to wait & get another estimate. He told them that he only wanted to get tooth extracted-a charge of $287.00. During extraction, the dentist told him the tooth next to extracted one needed a bone Graf or it would do the same as one being extracted. He explained there was space around tooth root & it would become loose & require extraction. This had not been discussed prior to the extraction. Was this price $1139.00 plus the charge of $287.00 for extraction too high? If so, what is a typical charge for the bone Graf?

Is my pricing high?
Amount: $1,400.00 not covered by insurance

Just saw the dentist today. Informed I am in need of two extractions and two bone graphs. My insurance does not cover bone grafts. Is $700 each a good price, or should I look to another opinion?

Type of Graft: bovineDentist/Periodontist: maxillofacial surgeon
I'm an older woman who has had several bone graft/implant procedures over a 20year period. The implants were all molars. This procedure is superior to bridges and other dental appliances if one has resources to pay for it. The implants feel like one's natural teeth. I figure the overall cost at $3000 per implant including graft and x rays. I would do it again with no hesitation.

Bone grafting and implants
Amount: $8,000.00 not covered by insurance
Posted by: Kirk Short in Los Algodones, AZ.Posted: January 17th, 2014 03:01PM
Type of Graft: lower molarDentist/Periodontist: Marcela Ibarra
I had implants come out after many years. Truckee oral surgeon, Dan Martin, cleaned out the infection at cost of more than $500. For cost of bone material ($32) could have grafted before suturing but wanted full bone grafting code paid in advance (even though 99% of work was already done). I didn't have the money (real estate sales, no income) so he closed the hollow defect to fill with interstitial tissue. I had to graft again before implants could be installed. Separate surgery, long term healing. CIRO Dental Clinic in Los Algodones, Mx, did 4 root canals, 2 extractions, 4 bridges and 2 crowns, plus graft and 3 implants with 5 unit bridge for about $8,000.

Dental Bone Graft

Type of Graft: entire top jaw lineDentist/Periodontist:
I am in pure shock at what I am experiencing. I'm 39 and have next to NO bone in upper jaw line. This means that a denture will not hold either because gum line is receding as well. I don't find this to be dental I find this to be medical however insurance does NOT agree with this. Even if it means having to leave my current job as a GM and have to go into a field of work to where I don't have to talk - a lesser paying career. Insurance won't pay for bone graft / hospital stay / anesthesiologist - nothing. There was an infection pocket found under sinus cap area / I'm osteoperosian . . .so in total I'm looking at an out of pocket bill for about $20,000.00+ this will financially destroy us . . .I just don't understand!

Type of Graft: boneDentist/Periodontist: dentist
I had an estimate for implants in July 2013. I have AmeriPlan, which negotiates discounted rates with dentists, chiropractors, prescriptions, etc. for only $15 per month. It is not insurance, they just negotiate the same rates the insurance company would have received on behalf of the consumer. I was told $2,475 per tooth which included the bone graft, implant and crown.

Dental Bone graft
Amount: $875.00 not covered by insurance
Posted by: Joy is getting a new tooth in Grandville, MI.Posted: August 23rd, 2013 01:08PM
Of course the surgeon gave an estimate of $425-$875, and it was the highest! He said while doing the procedure, he was using one cc of cadaver bone, and at he also mentioned he wasn't using it all and told the assistant to set it aside in case he needed more. It made me curious, wondering how much he would have used to make it the $425! He made it sound like he didn't need to do a lot? Was I just an easy target to overcharge??? In all I paid $2975.00 and that included the implant and cuff. My insurance will cover about $600.00 of that!
