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.

  •   My dentists had been 'keeping an eye' on my gum recession for some time. By the time I visited Dr. Aalam's office, the situation had become urgent.

    Dr. Aalam thoroughly explained the grafting procedure and I am very pleased with the results. I also appreciated that Dr. Aalam made himself extremely accessible (via his personal cell phone) for my questions and concerns, both before the procedure and post-op.

    My one critique is that I felt underprepared for the recovery experience. I know that everyone's body responds differently. But I found the recovery to be longer and more painful, than I'd anticipated or was warned about. That said, Dr. Aalam and the office staff (especially Summer and Linsey) remained helpful and responsive during that period. I did, and continue to feel, like a valued patient.

    thumb Kay S.

      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!

    thumb Lindsay T.

      Dr Alina is a god sent,I was defiantly meant to find her to help me with my implant.
    I am petrified of any sort of dentist and was mortified when I cracked my tooth not to mention I had to have a bone graft as well.
    It was my worse nightmare come true.
    I believe people come into your life for a reason,and I know this may sound cheesy but I couldn't never have imagined walking out of there after my year journey having fully gained my confidence in going to a dentist.
    I had a bone graft and a implant and didn't feel a thing throughout the whole process,I didn't even need to take any pain meds in my aftercare.
    I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
    Thank you for looking after me,i truly appreciate you.
    I couldn't recommend you enough

    thumb Coco D.
  •   Cannot say enough good things about this practice.  I dislike dealing with my teeth and this is why i am seeing Dr. Aalam. He is fixing my decades of neglect die to fear of dentistry(trauma as a child from a dentist).  
    I was scared to even make the appointment but Mara calmed my fears and told me they would be taking excellent care of me.  She made me comfortable and even remembered me when i came if for my first appointment.  
    Dr. Aalam is so calming, gentle and caring.  Top notch and state of the art equipment(i work in Ophthamology so i understand the need and cost to have the newest tools).
    They did ct scan, x rays and etc.  Everything was laid out on a monitor, all options reviewed and explained in detail.  BUT, Dr. Aalam was very, very honest with the state of my teeth.
    Yes, full implants are expensive and there are places you can go and get "deals" but like with Lasik, do you really want a Groupon deal for your teeth. The answer is no. You pay to do it correctly the first time or you pay later to fix the damage.  
    Truth be told, I need a new mouth of teeth. Dr. Aalam pointed out i can do only lower teeth if not financially possible but i made the decision to do it all now. I wont tell the price because it is not your business but Linsey(practice manager) is very nice, knowledgeable and willing to show you your options.  
    I have started my New Mouth Journey and have had a deep cleaning(under sedation)my hygienist was also calming and nice but sadly i forget her name :(.  i also had some teeth removed while under sedation.  No pain.
    I am so happy i found Dr. Aalam and his practice.  Found via a facebook ad i believe.  Stellar cleanliness.  Nice office. Little wait time.  Apple juice and water while you wait.  Dr. Aalam called me up himself to check on me after my surgery.  I have his email for any questions.  Five stars may not be enough.  

    Pro tip-free 2 hour parking on side street.

    thumb Robert S.

      Literally, the most professional experience anyone could hope for at a dentist.  The Ritz Carlton of dentistry.

    thumb Alan D.

      This place rocks!  I go for regular dental appointments but also had a procedure recently for gum recession.  Front of the house staff is so nice and accommodating (they worked so well cross functionally with my insurance), Dr Aalam has an amazing and gentle approach, and my hygienist Maryam always forgives me when I'm not flossing well enough 🙂 Highly recommend!  Easy street parking, clean and professional building, and everyone is always happy to see you.

    thumb Matthew P.
  •   I had such a pleasure to get referred from my regular dentist to Dr Aalam. I have for many years never been totally comfortable smiling as I always felt i was smiling only with my gum. I decided to make an appointment with Dr Aalam, and was completely amazed how welcoming not only he is, but how friendly and kind he's staff is. Everyone working there are super professional.
    After my consultation I felt so comfortable in Dr. Aalam's hands that I booked my surgery day the same day for gum contouring.
    Fast forward. I have never been this happy with my result. I can only recommend him, and trust me. I have looked around for 7 years to find the right person. I can never go to any other dentist now.
    Since my surgery I have also seen Dr. Krivitsky for cosmetic touch ups and will be seeing her again as well next week.
    The knowledge they both have, nobody can beat. I have referred and will only refer to both of them.

    Forever thankful!!!! Louise

    thumb Louise L.

      The team is outstanding! Extremely professional and with a remarkable technique. Possibly, the best experience you can have for your teeth. The gum tissue graft performed by Dr. Aalam was completely painless and with a very easy postop recovery. He is extremely clear explaining every single step of the procedure and suggesting the correct way for an effective recovery! Amazing job! THANKS!!

    thumb Ignacio B.

      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.

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!
