Dental implants are a type of cosmetic dentistry used to replace missing or broken teeth. The implant consists of a small metal plate, which permanently anchors the specially designed replacement tooth onto the patient’s bone. There are many different types of dental implants, and the best option for the patient is chosen during a thorough examination by a certified dental practitioner.
Although dental implants are a fairly common procedure, it can sometimes be challenging to find information when researching dental implant pricing. This is because there are many different variables affecting the price of dental implants, including whether the procedure is done by a specialist, as well as the patient’s own unique circumstances.
On average, basic dental implants will cost between $2,000 and $4,000. While this is more expensive than the price of traditional dentures, it is important to keep in mind that the higher cost is a result of substantially higher quality materials and a much longer lasting outcome. It is also important to remember that the price of your dental implant procedure may not fall within this $2,000 to $4,000 range. For example, if your dentist finds that you require bone grafting or another additional procedure before you are able to obtain dental implants, the cost of the procedure will be on the higher end of the spectrum for you. Other factors affecting price include the number of teeth that need to be replaced and which type of dental implant you require.
Although prices vary on a patient-by-patient basis, it is important to have a general idea of what to expect if you are considering this significant procedure:
