How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?


We would love to be able to give you an exact number for what your dental implants will cost in our Brentwood Los Angeles office. Unfortunately, because all patients are different, it’s important that an examination be completed before establishing your treatment plan and the costs of dental implants so you know the number of implants and the types of dental implants you will need.

That’s the “bad news”. Here’s the good news…

We will work with you when more extensive treatment is needed to craft a payment plan that works for you. We believe that dental care should be within everyone’s reach and will work to accommodate your personal financial situation to the best of our ability.

GETTING STARTED With Dental Implants

The first step to finding out the cost of your dental implant surgery is setting up an initial consultation. An approximate fee can usually be determined during this initial visit and we can discuss the easy financing options, what your dental insurance may cover and how you can fit the cost of dental implants into your budget and lifestyle.

Call us at (310) 299-8329 to schedule your initial consultation.

types of dental implants procedures we offer

single tooth dental implant


A Single Dental Implants is a titanium or zirconia post that is surgically placed into the jaw to replace a single tooth root. This post naturally fuses to the bone, to function just as a tooth root. The post supports an artificial tooth implant crown that looks, feels and acts exactly like a natural tooth. 

multiple missing teeth dental implants

Multiple Implants

Multiple Dental Implants look and function precisely like natural teeth, without affecting the surrounding teeth. It’s always best to maintain a patient’s existing healthy teeth, which is why multiple implants are often a better solution for patients looking to replace several missing teeth.

all-on-4 tooth replacement dental implants


The All-On-4® dental procedures utilizes a minimum of four dental implants to support a full-arch fixed prosthesis and completely restore a patient’s smile in just one day. This tooth replacement procedure is ideal for patients who are missing all or the majority of their teeth. 

zygomatic implants dental solution


Zygomatic Dental Implants utilize patients’ existing bone density by anchoring the extra long implants closest to the cheek bone, also known as the zygomatic bone. This dental implant surgery solution is a graftless treatment ideal for patients who experience severe forms of bone loss.

sinus lift

Sinus Augmentation (sinus lift) is performed when the sinus floor is too close to the area where dental implants are to be placed. This procedure is performed to increase the amount of bone in the upper jaw to ensure a secure foundation for the implants, while protecting the sinus.

bone graft after tooth extraction

Bone Graft

Bone grafting is the process of restoring lost bone tissue in the jaw. When left untreated, periodontal disease can progress to and damage the supporting bone. Because dental implants are placed into the jawbone, patients must posses enough bone to support the implant. A bone graft is performed when patients lack adequate bone density.

  •   Dr. Aalam is an absolute life saver and I am so grateful to have been seen by him.

    I had extreme tooth sensitivity for about a year. So extreme that I ended up accidentally overdosing on pain killers to numb the pain. I had been seen by 2 different dentists multiple times and neither were able to fix the problem. Within 15 seconds of being inspected by Dr. Aalam, he was able to see a crack in my tooth which is what had been causing me so much pain. He saw with his naked eye what two dentists were unable to see even with X-Ray!

    He is beyond talented and one again I am so grateful he was able to see me and recommend to the correct endodontist to give me a root canal. I am finally pain free! Thank you Dr. Aalam!

      I first reached out to Dr. Krivitsky for a consultation regarding my gums a couple of years before my surgery. (I decided to wait until after my Invisalign treatment was complete.) I was very impressed. Not only was she a compassionate doctor, she was very patient with all of my questions. I was fascinated with her technique of incorporating the patient's own stem cells in the gum repair procedure. I was also intrigued to hear her recommend using the tissue on my gums where a couple of wisdom teeth had been removed. She pointed out those areas have a very good quality tissue often overlooked in gum repair surgery with tradition methods. I can truly say she made a big impression on me.

    Five months after completing my orthodontic work, I was ready to have the gum surgery. I again consulted with another (traditional method) periodontist and Dr. Krivitsky. She impressed me all over again. In my heart, I felt like it was best to proceed with her. While it's true that the estimate at the Center for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy was more expensive than a traditional periodontist, it was not exorbitantly so.

    The day of the surgery went extremely well. I was put under conscious sedation. Except for a brief exchange at the beginning, the procedure itself is a blur. I have recollections of conversations happening around me and movement in my mouth and jaw but very little else. It was an absolutely pain-free experience. As I was coming to, they let me know that the procedure went extremely well.

    Dr. Krivitsky and her staff were very professional and patient with all of my questions after surgery and in the coming weeks. I returned for several check-ins at one week, three weeks and five weeks. It's now two months after my surgery. My gum line is restored (in particular an extremely problematic area in my upper back left which was the worst going into the surgery.) I'm thrilled beyond measure with the results.

    Ten years ago, I watched a friend recover from a traditional gum graft surgery. His experience seemed extremely unpleasant. Apparently the roof of his mouth was extremely sore for days and he could barely talk. My experience recovering was nothing like that. Yes, I had some swelling that peaked on the third day, but I never experienced any pain. Nor did I have any trouble talking. I feel my recovery time was extremely swift. If you're considering gum graft surgery, you owe it to yourself to at least consult with the Center for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy. I will be heartily recommending them to everyone I know.

    thumb Van S.

      My mom had implants done at the age of 84, and usually, because of the age and the bone condition, the chance of getting it to work is not high but Dr. Aalam has done a great job and all work well. The staff at the office are delightful, friendly, and professional.
    I recommend their office and rate them 100% approved.

    thumb Mozhgan T.
  •   I was referred to Dr. Krivitsky by my new dentist Dr Yeung (who you can see from my other review, I'm obsessed with.)

    She is super personable, explains things well, and does everything to make sure you are getting the best care possible.

    I had to redo a bone graft and I feel much more confident after being in her hands. It was also less expensive than my less bone graft and she offered free general anesthesia (take it, I didn't and I should've!!!)

    She placed an implant in a very difficult spot with little bone in my little head and now I have a picture perfect smile.

    Can't recommend enough

    thumb Sabrina S.

      From my first phone interaction to the very moment I left my follow-up treatment--wonderful service! The staff and Dr's at Center for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy are simply caring people. I went in as a referral from my primary dentist because of my impacted partly bony wisdom tooth. That sucker needed to come out ASAP!

    My primary dentist gave me the options of Dr. Alina Krivitsky's office as well as another "5-Stars on Yelp" practice. I called both offices ahead of time to check on their availability because I had swollen lymph nodes and sporadic pain. I also wanted to receive estimates for the wisdom tooth removal. I was drawn to Dr. Krivitsky's office because of the friendly response from her front staff member, Summer. Unlike the first office I called, Summer kindly answered all of my questions and acknowledged the urgency to see the Dr. to hopefully ease my wisdom tooth pain and rid my swollen lymph nodes. I was reassured that I would be in great hands and indeed I was!

    Dr. Krivitsky communicated everything that I had to look forward to on the day of the surgery. Her reassurance and humor helped me feel comfortable and at ease even though like many others, I was a nervous wreck (on the inside). I was treated with care on the day of the appointment. The staff even allowed my boyfriend to come back with me until I was sedated. That meant so much to me because my anxiety had grown as we got closer to the procedure.

    And...JUST....LIKE....THAT..... Dr. Krivitsky proudly held my wisdom tooth for me to see! I was done! I did not feel any pain during the procedure and experienced minimal pain afterwards. I followed the post-op directions and was on my way to a speedy recovery.

    The only thing that left a distaste in my mouth (literally) is the prescribed anti-inflammatory medicine, the flippin' Medrol Dose Pack! They are tiny evil little pills that dissolve with water on the tongue before it allows itself to be swallowed. For six whole days, I went to war with these little demons, but I came out on the other side...

    On the other hand, I am EXTREMELY happy that I chose Dr. Krivitsky. Her team is one of a kind and all go above and beyond to help with anything they can. One of the staff members even went as far to help me solve an issue with my insurance (I don't remember her name, but she is the best)!

    I am extremely confident in Dr. Krivitsky's skills and expertise in her practice. She is truly worth every second of your anxiety and your time!

    thumb Jackie M.

      I can not speak highly enough about this office and staff. From the front desk, and straight to the top everyone involved in my treatment was amazing. Dr. Aalam is a phenomenal individual and true professional. He was attentive through the entire process of my tooth implant. Madison, his dental hygienist is also a gem. She's caring, attentive, and knowledgeable of her craft. I highly recommend this office for your dental needs.

    thumb Navid Y.
  •   I'd been so embarrassed about my smile for the longest time and finally got the courage to do something about it. I found Dr Aalam on Google. He was the first to pop up in my search and the top rated so I chose him after calling his office and a few others. After the virtual consultation, we scheduled an appointment for my procedure which went very well. It was prompt, quick, absolutely painless and almost forgettable. I do remember Dr Aalam telling me I now had a beautiful smile and that I was going to be so happy when I woke up haha he's a really kind doctor who understands his clients' desires. I think his prices are fair. I actually was expecting to pay a bit more since he's one of the best in LA. He even gives you his personal phone number to contact him at any time should you have questions or concerns. The aftercare is really easy and I literally didn't need ANY pain medication. I'll be going back for my follow up appointment in a couple weeks but I am already so excited about my smile and I would recommend this office to anyone who is looking for quality care and dependable results.
    Also, the receptionist Summer is the kindest, most knowledge team member ever. She is definitely able to quell any nervousness you might have on the day of your procedure, and she's such a great fill in for the doctor when he is busy and you have a question or concern.
    5 stars, 10/10.

    thumb Brittni W.

      My experience at the center for advanced periodontist and gum disease was completely life changing. As someone who was raised to only seek healing and help when there is a problem, I haven't been to the dentist since childhood!

    I came in with an extremely severe wisdom tooth problem. This problem was so bad that I fainted! I am someone who didn't know or have trust in our current health system. It wasn't until I had the most eye opening experience this year (2020)  that I was given the direct experience of a true miracle.

    This office has changed the way I view doctors, dentists and healthcare. I am forever grateful for the work they did on me this year and teaching me how to maintain my oral health!

    They also give the best cleanings! I can't wait till my next one!

    From the beautiful office to beautiful staff, I am truly so grateful for the individuals that work here!

    Thank you all so much!

    thumb Jasmine P.

      Dr. Aalam is phenomenal! Amazing results, and from start to finish this is hands down the best dental experience that I have had. The office is clean and beautiful and the whole staff is so kind and patient. I have dental anxiety and Dr. Aalam and staff really made me feel safe, calm, and well taken care of. Thank you Dr. Aalam!

Dental Implant FAQs

Q: What are dental implants?

A: Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, either made of titanium or the holistic alternative, Zirconia, that are placed in the jaw bone and support permanent restorations to replace missing or extracted teeth. Once the implant is placed, it takes 3-6 months for the implant to fuse to the jawbone, also known as the osseointegration process, and the surrounding gum tissue to heal before a permanent artificial tooth can be fastened to the implant.

Q: Will my teeth implants match my existing natural teeth?
A: Yes! Your teeth feature a custom-designed porcelain crown that perfectly matches the shade of your existing teeth.  Patients often have difficulty distinguishing their natural teeth from their beautiful new teeth implants.
Q: Are there any age limitations?
A: Any person over the age of 18 can have dental implants as long as there is enough bone available in which to place the implant. Younger than 18? Get in touch with our Brentwood, Los Angeles office for an expert opinion on what your best options are!
Q: How often will I need to have checkups?
A: The success of your implants will depend greatly on how well you maintain them. They need to be professionally cleaned and examined once every three to six months. Also, brushing and flossing daily is absolutely necessary for long-term maintenance of your teeth, as well as maintaining overall systemic health. We offer periodic educational seminars on how to maintain healthy gums and increase total oral health.
Q: Is the dental implant procedure painful?
A: No, it is not. We are dental implant experts. We pride ourselves on pain-free and gentle treatment. An effective local anesthetic is used during the procedure so that you do not have any discomfort during the placement of the dental implants. We also use an IV sedation method that is designed to help the patient relax and feel at ease. This sedation works quickly and completely relaxes the patient and eliminates any stress or anxieties.  Although this method does not induce sleep, the patient will feel relaxed and the periodontist will be able to accomplish a higher level of dentistry in a shorter amount of time. The mild discomfort you might experience after dental implant surgery can be controlled with medications.
Q: When can I return to work after tooth implant surgery?
A: You can return to work after a dental implant procedure in Beverly Hills the following day unless a particular surgical circumstance arises. Dr. Aalam or Dr. Krivitsky will discuss all post-operative care instructions with you.

Q: What if I want “metal-free” implants?

A: For patients who prefer non-metal implants, we offer holistic alternatives made of Zirconia, a type of ceramic. Zirconia implants possess a unique one-piece design, meaning the artificial tooth root and the abutment (the piece the replacement tooth is fastened to) are connected, in contrast to titanium implants which are two pieces. The biocompatible material offers the same strength as titanium dental implants, and Zirconia implants are also white in color, which may be a more aesthetically pleasing option for some patients, as the metal isn’t visible.

Q: What is All-on-4?

A: All-on-4® is a revolutionary procedure that restores a patient’s smile by replacing all missing teeth, either on the top, bottom, or both, utilizing a minimum of four implants, in one day. Patient’s leave with a complete set of teeth and a beautiful smile on the same day.  This procedure is particularly beneficial for patients who experience bone loss, as it is a graftless solution that utilizes existing bone density and tilted implants to support the permanent restorations. Did you know Dr. Aalam was trained in Portugal by Dr. Paolo Malo, the founder of the All-On-4 technique? Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky are dental implant experts who provide life-changing results for their patients.

Q: How much do implants cost and does insurance cover the cost?

A: The cost of single tooth and multiple dental implants in Los Angeles varies depending on each patient’s specific case. Elements including the number of teeth missing, whether a patient experiences bone loss and chooses a graftless solution or requires a bone graft, the type of implant chosen, the number of implants and whether additional treatments such as gum grafts are needed can factor into the overall cost. The first step into understanding which dental implant surgery treatment plan is best for you and receiving a quote is to schedule a consultation with your periodontist in Los Angeles to receive a proper diagnosis.

Q: What are the advantages of dental implants?

A: Dental implants replace inconvenient or non-permanent dental solutions (such as dentures). No more messy nightly soaks, or dental replacements needed when you choose to have a dental implant procedure. Permanent implants are extremely durable, as they won’t slip like traditional dentures and can last a lifetime with the proper maintenance. These permanent teeth will look, feel and function like your regular teeth, improving your ability to chew and speak without any impediments. Most patients opt for dental implants to restore their smiles, self-esteem, and confidence, so they enjoy a healthy smile, worry free!
