The Average Prices For A Single Tooth & Full Mouth Implants
Dental implants are the best choice for people with partial or total tooth loss due to poor nutrition, poor oral hygiene, or even playing hockey.
The costs of dental implants are determined by a number of factors. Like most services, a dental implant's price really depends on materials and time.
There are several materials involved in a dental implant.
- 1. The implant itself that is embedded into your jawbone (it is done under anesthesia, so you'll be in a happy state while this is happening).
- 2. The abutment - the part attached to the implant with a screw.
- 3. The restoration or crown - the part that actually looks like a tooth.
The duration of a dental implant procedure covers the time the cosmetic dentist spends performing the surgery and also handling other non-surgical aspects.
Average Dental Implant Cost Per Tooth in 2019: $2,000
Cost Range For A Full Set Of Dental Implants In 2019: $24,000 - $100,000
Ouch! That's so expensive.
But the $2,000 dental implant cost per tooth only covers the price of the implant itself. The cost of an abutment and the restoration/crown, means another $2,000 will be added to the average cost per tooth. In the end, the cost of a single tooth implant stands at $4,000 on average in the US.
There are actually some tips to make things more palatable and affordable.
1. Many cosmetic dentists provide payment plans and/or affordable financing choices for patients. Also, as insurance companies know the cost benefit of dental implants, more insurance plans are beginning to cover part of the dental implant costs. So make sure to talk with your dental insurance company to see whether they will take on part of the tab.
2. As for the materials used in dental implants, a Toyota and a Lexus will both get from point A to B and do so very well. Therefore, you don't necessarily opt for the top of the line implant to get the job done. You still have a safe and reliable alternative to high cost materials.
3. If you need more than one dental implant, you can probably get a better price from your local cosmetic dentist. Remember to ask!
4. Are you getting a dental implant by an experienced dentist in a major city with a high cost? Driving one hour or two can earn you a lower price from a more experienced dentist who lives in suburban areas. The time definitely worth the cost.
