Cost of Dental Implants

_DSF6212 (Large)

One of the most common questions we get asked about dental implants is, “How much do dental implants cost?” We know this question is essential because many want to ensure they can pay for their treatment.

We’ve put together some information below to help answer your questions about dental implants and their average price.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the gold standard for replacement teeth. They are artificial tooth roots that can be placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. They help stimulate new bone growth and look and feel like natural teeth, but they’re made from titanium or other strong and durable metals. An implant is designed to hold a permanent crown (replacement for your original tooth), covering it and giving it a beautiful appearance.

The typical cost of dental implants ranges between $3,000-$5,500 per implant, depending on a variety of factors, including type of implant used, whether you need additional procedures such as bone grafting, and your insurance coverage.

Factors Influencing the Cost of Implants

The Number of Implants Required

The more implants you need, the higher the price tag. This is because single implants are priced by the number of implants required.

Additional Treatments or Procedures

If you don't have sufficient bone density in your jaw, you'll need to undergo an additional procedure, such as a bone graft, before placing the implants. Bone grafts are performed to increase the amount of bone in your mouth so that the implants can be placed successfully. This additional procedure will likely increase the overall cost of tooth implants.

Type of Implant Used

The overall cost of your treatment plan depends on the type of implant used. Single dental implants are cheaper than full-mouth implants.

Dental Insurance Plans

Most dental plans cover part of the cost of teeth implant treatments since they are considered medically necessary services. It's best to check with your dental insurance provider to know the extent of your coverage. If you don't have an insurance plan, you can ask your dentist about other payment options, such as monthly payment plans.
