What Is Bone Grafting?
A bone graft involves moving a piece of bone from another part of the body to the jaw. Bone grafts are often used before placing dental implants and are administered by experienced oral surgeons.
What Does it Cost to Get a Bone Graft?
The cost of a bone graft usually depends on what type of graft is necessary, what your insurance covers, and any additional procedures needed before or after. Generally, synthetic bone is less expensive than using your own bone. An additional cut is needed to use natural bone, so most of our patients opt to use synthetic.
What Happens During a Sinus Lift?
A sinus lift for dental implants involves “lifting” the sinus membrane so that bone can be inserted near the premolars and molars. Our dentists use anesthesia throughout the procedure to ensure patient comfort.

How Much Does Sedation Dentistry Cost?
The type of treatment administered will determine how much sedation dentistry costs. Some insurance plans offer coverage for sedation, so we encourage patients to speak with their providers before treatment. Generally, oral sedation and nitrous oxide tend to cost less than IV sedation.
What Is a Tooth Extraction?
Surgical tooth extractions are usually more complex than a general extraction performed at the dentist’s office. An oral surgeon is consulted when a tooth hasn’t broken through the gums or has not fully developed. During an extraction, the oral surgeon makes a small cut inside the gums to remove the tooth. Sedation is used to ensure you feel comfortable throughout the procedure.
Tooth Extractions: How Much Do They Cost?
What your insurance covers, the location of the damaged tooth, and the number of follow-up visits required will factor into the tooth extraction cost. At your consultation, our dentist will provide an estimate of the anticipated extraction cost.
Will it Hurt to Get My Wisdom Teeth Extracted?
