How much do dental implants cost?  The million dollar question – literally (ok, almost).

An ideal option for people who have lost a tooth/teeth, dental implant costs are impacted by the procedure time and materials.

Dental Implant Cost Factors

  • The dental implant(s) which is inserted into your jawbone (this is done under anesthesia during this so you’ll be in your happy place when this happens!).
  • The abutment (part that attaches to the implant using a screw).
  • The restoration/crown (part that actually looks like a tooth).
  • The procedure (inserting the implant(s) into your jawbone with anesthesia, recovery and follow ups.

Average Dental Implant Cost Per Tooth:  $2000

Cost Range for a Full Set of Dental Implants: $24,000 – $100,000

No, we’re not joking.

Oh yeah, the $2000 dental implant cost per tooth figure is just for the implant itself. Throw in the cost of an abutment and the restoration/crown and that’s another $2000 on average per tooth. That brings the total for the whole shebang to an average of $4000 for dental implants per tooth in the United States.

How Do People Pay for Dental Implants?

Most cosmetic dentists offer payment plans and/or affordable financing options for dental implants. Also, more insurance plans are starting to cover part of the cost of dental implants because they understand the cost benefit of them. So be sure to check with your dental insurance company to see if they’ll pick up part of the tab.

The huge range of prices of dental implants above is like the difference, cost-wise, between buying a Toyota and a Tesla. But when it comes to dental implants, this range reflects the difference in price due to the condition of your mouth, how many implants you need, the materials used, where you live and the experience level of your cosmetic dentist.
