How Much do Dental Implants Cost?

March 7, 2023

Tooth loss is one of the most common dental issues among adults. In fact, statistics show that approximately 120 million people are missing at least one tooth. This is expected to increase over the next two decades. While you may not think that one missing tooth is a major problem, it can lead to a variety of additional problems, including misalignment due to shifting of teeth to fill in the gap and additional tooth loss. One of the most popular options for tooth restoration at Peak Dental Group is dental implants.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the gold standard for tooth restoration because they look, feel, and function more like natural teeth than other options. Dental implants have a 95%+ success rate for healthy patients. A traditional dental implant consists of three parts:

  • Implant: tiny screw that is inserted into the jawbone, acting as an artificial tooth root. It restores stimulation to the jawbone, keeping it healthy and preventing deterioration.
  • Abutment: attachment that holds the crown or other tooth restoration to the implant, making it a permanent part of the mouth.
  • Crown: an artificial tooth that sits above the gum line.

Dental implants may be used to replace a single tooth or as support for multi-tooth restoration, such as bridges and dentures. Finally, with proper care and maintenance, dental implants are known to last a lifetime. However, it is important to note that the artificial tooth portion may need to be replaced, depending on how well you care for it.

How Much are Dental Implants?

Since dental implants look, feel, and function more like natural teeth, this is one of the most expensive tooth restoration options. When considering the cost, it is important to keep in mind that this is a lifetime investment and should be treated as such.

On average, a single implant costs between $3,000 to $4,500, and full-mouth implants cost between $60,000 to $90,000. This depends on several factors, such as:

  • Location of dentist
  • Experience/expertise of the dentist
  • Location of implant
  • Type of implant (traditional vs. mini)
  • Implant material
  • Additional procedures required

According to experts, no two dental implant procedures are exactly alike, so there is no standard cost.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer several benefits:

  • The procedure is easy/effective
  • Improve appearance
  • Keep jawbone healthy
  • Easy to care for
  • Improve speaking ability
  • Improve eating ability

Are Dental Implants Painful?

You will be given local anesthesia for the procedure, so you may feel some pressure as we are working, but you should not feel any pain. Once the procedure is over and the anesthesia begins to wear off, you may feel some discomfort. However, most of the time, an OTC pain reliever will help.
