When considering dental implants, how much they cost is likely one of the first questions you may ask. While every patient’s investment will differ, the average cost is $1,500 to $2,000 for each individual implant. The dental implant process also includes the dental crown, abutment, other necessary procedures, and everything else that goes into the placement of the implant. These extra costs can range from $1,500 to $2,500, making the total cost for a single implant, $3,000 to $4,500.

Many people choose cosmetic dentistry because they want to alter how they look. Some people feel self-conscious about their smiles or may neglect their oral health and wish to make changes to hide flaws or brighten up their smiles. Others may have had an accident or injury that has left them with broken or missing teeth. Our cosmetic dentist can help these individuals achieve beautiful smiles through teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and other treatments.
There are many things that will affect what your total investment will be when getting dental implants. These factors include:
Titanium is the most commonly used material for the main post of the dental implant. This material is biocompatible and bonds very well with the jaw bone. Some patients may require a different material due to a sensitivity or metal allergy. Zirconia is the second most common material used and is a ceramic material made to look like your real tooth. Zirconia is slightly more expensive than titanium and can increase the total investment for your treatment.
Bone grafting may be required for patients when they have experienced bone loss in the jaw following the loss of natural teeth. You may need a bone graft before having an implant placed in order to properly support the new implant. This procedure will add to the overall cost of treatment.
The number of implants that you need is a big determining factor in the overall cost of treatment. When patients have lost multiple natural teeth, the cost will be higher than those who just need one implant. Patients who are missing an entire arch of teeth often opt for All-on-4 implants because it uses only 4 implant posts, making it a more cost-effective option.
Your oral health plays a role in the overall cost of dental implants. Patients with poor oral health may need additional treatment in order to ensure the success of the implant procedure. With proper care and good oral health, patients can expect to pay less than those who don’t have good oral health.
Many patients require other procedures in their dental plan along with their implant treatment. Common treatments include tooth extraction, bone graft, dental bridges, and root canals. Dental implants are also often done as part of a full mouth restoration which can increase your total investment.
Dental Implants Are Life-Changing!
If you’re missing one or more of your teeth and would prefer not to have a bridge or full/partial dentures, you might consider exploring whether you’d be a good candidate for dental implants.
Most dental insurance companies cover some portion of the cost of dental implants, depending on your coverage. If you do not have dental insurance, you will need to pay out of pocket for this procedure. You should contact your insurance provider to determine what your policy covers.
Many patients choose to finance their dental implants because it allows them to spread out the payments over time. We offer financing options through CareCredit. CareCredit offers flexible monthly payments for qualified patients. The application process is quick and easy, and most patients are approved within minutes.
If you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA), you may be able to use these accounts to help offset the costs associated with your dental implants. These accounts allow you to set aside money from each paycheck to pay for medical expenses.
