One of the first questions that patients invested in their dental health has for their dentist is “how much are dental implants?”
In fact, questions about the cost of dental implants far outnumber any questions about pain, success rates, or questions about the aesthetics of implants.
Understandably, the price tag seems to be the most important thing to consider for many curious about this treatment.
Investment in Yourself
The first thing you should do is to stop thinking of dental implants as an option, and to start thinking of them as an investment.
The average alternative to implants including dentures or bridges requires replacing every five to ten years.
This added with the cost of regular repairs and maintenance can quickly surpass the total cost of dental implants.
How Much Are Dental Implants?
The cost will vary depending on your dentist’s expertise and on your geographic location.
However, you can expect single dental implants to cost anywhere from $1500 to $2000 per implant.
There are additional costs to consider including the following:
- The cost of a custom or stock crown
- The cost of the abutment that connects the crown to the implant
- Cost of tooth and root removal
- Office visit costs
- Pre and post-op care
The total amount of all of these typically ranges from $1500-$3000.
Dental Insurance for Dental Implants
The great news is that many dental insurance providers cover at least part of your expenses for implants.
Be sure to call your provider to see what may be covered under your current plan.
