What You Need To Know About Dental Implants Costs
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.
To make paying for dental implants more pleasant, however, 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 pick up part of the tab.
The huge cost range of dental implants is like the difference between purchasing a Toyota and a Tesla.
When it comes to dental implants, however, this range is dependent on your mouth condition, the number of implants you need, the materials you choose, where you live, and the experience level of your cosmetic dentist.
