About Dental Implant Costs

When reviewing and comparing costs, it’s important to consider that dental implants are “medical devices” which require a larger team of dental professionals and that the placement of dental implants is both art and science. You are, in fact, buying a service rather than a product – a service that can change your life and give you permanent teeth that will last a lifetime.

First, here are the most commonly accepted figures: The total cost for a single dental implant to be placed and restored range on average from $3,000 to $6,000 per restored implant. The typical cost is usually around $4,500. To replace all your top or bottom teeth with full-arch fixed implant bridges – often referred to as All-on-4 – can cost from $15,000 to $30,000 (or more) per arch.

Can you find a dentist who can provide dental implants for less? Absolutely. You can always find someone cheaper. Just like you can always find someone less skilled and with less experience.

Dental Implants
Initial Consultation
The first time you meet with us is extremely important. This Consultation includes much of the planning for the rest of the treatment. Our doctor will assess the health of the teeth and jaws. Diagnostic 3D imaging (valued at $477) will be obtained and treatment options will be discussed.

After the initial consultation, you are scheduled for surgery where the dental implants are placed and the new teeth are fitted and adjusted. While these won’t be your final restoration, you will leave our office after this visit with beautiful, fixed, functional teeth.

Follow-Up Appointment
After 3-6 months, when the implants are fused to the natural bone, the dentist will take new impressions of your mouth and prepare a final, stronger, permanent set of teeth adjusted to a perfect fit. This helps ensure that the teeth will last for decades, and provide maximum support, beauty, and function to the patient.

Sedation Dentistry
Some patients may choose to be sedated (undergo general anesthetic) during the dental implant procedure, as they might be too nervous during the surgery if they are completely awake. If this is a problem you should consider asking for a sedative to ease your anxiety.

Bone Grafts
Patients who have lost a lot of bone may also require bone grafts. Bone grafts may be performed in a separate procedure, several months before the implant is placed, and will require several months to heal and for the graft to fuse into the regular bone. This extra procedure may, of course, mean additional costs. This also means you may not be able to have the procedure done in one trip since the graft will take time to grow into the bone and you need to allow tissues to heal. However, we also offer an option that does not include bone grafting called a Zygomatic Implant.

Teeth Location
Which teeth are being replaced also influences the cost of treatment. Front teeth are much harder for the surgeon to work on and require more skill to make the implant look like a natural tooth. As a rule, visible teeth tend to be more expensive, and the surgery tends to be longer.
Affordable Dental Implants
While more expensive than dentures, dental implants are the more cost-effective option for dental restoration, and provide a more natural, secure, longer-lasting solution. Other options, such as a tooth-supported bridge, have a limited lifespan and must be replaced. The American Dental Association reports that the average bridge must be replaced every 10.1 years. However, clinical studies have shown that implant-supported crowns (like we're discussing here) are effective at 20+ years in 95% of cases. This study shows a 98.8% 10-year survival rate of dental implants, which means the implants will almost certainly outlast bridges. Other studies have shown the effectiveness of dental implants in the shorter term. This Swedish study showed a 98.2% survival rate of the implant (Not for patients; there were no fatalities reported in the study!) over 32 months with the immediately loaded implants. Implants may be more expensive up-front, but over time their superior value and lifespan mean you'll be saving money in the long run.

Dental Implants FAQ

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants are placed into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone over time. This process is called osseointegration. Once the implant has fused with the bone, a small connector post, called an abutment, is attached to the implant. This post sticks out above the gum line and is used to support the replacement tooth or teeth.

Are dental implants painful?

The procedure for placing dental implants is typically done under local anesthesia and is not painful. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or swelling after the procedure, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

How long does the dental implant procedure take?

The length of the dental implant procedure can vary depending on the number of implants being placed and the individual patient's case. Generally, the procedure for placing a single dental implant can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours.

How long does it take for a dental implant to heal after they are placed?

The healing time for dental implants can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the location of the implant and the individual patient's healing process. Generally, the healing process for dental implants can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months. During this time, the implant will fuse with the surrounding bone, a process known as osseointegration. After the implant has fully integrated with the bone, a small connector post, called an abutment, will be attached to the implant. The replacement tooth or teeth will then be placed on top of the abutment.

Are dental implants covered by insurance?

Dental insurance coverage for implants can vary depending on the individual plan. Some insurance plans may cover a portion of the cost of the implant, while others may not cover them at all. It's best to check with your insurance provider to understand your specific coverage.

What are the risks and complications associated with dental implants?

As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks and potential complications associated with dental implants. These can include infection, nerve damage, sinus issues, and implant failure.

How should I care for my dental implants?

It's important to maintain good oral hygiene and to visit your dentist regularly to ensure the long-term success of your dental implants. This includes brushing and flossing your teeth properly, as well as avoiding habits that can damage your teeth and gums.
