Determining the Average Cost of Dental Implants
Dental Implants are a strong, long-lasting solution to replace missing teeth. Their cost is determined by many factors, including:
- the expertise of the practitioner performing the implant
- materials used
- preparation procedures, such as tooth extraction or bone grafting,
- number of implants needed
- laboratory costs
- type of implant: for example, an implant to replace a single tooth or an implant to hold a bridge or denture
What is the Cost of Dental Implants?

According to DentalImplantCostGuide.com, the average completed dental implant, in the U.S., costs about $4250. The implant refers to the post that goes into the jawbone, and acts as the root of the new tooth.
The implant post costs between $1000 to $3000. The implant holds an abutment, which goes into the implant and rises above the gum to hold the crown, which is the new tooth. An abutment and crown cost between $500 to $3000.
- CT Scan
- Tooth extraction
- Bone graft
- Surgical guides
- Barrier membranes
can add to the cost.
Dental Implants can also be used to support bridges and dentures. The average cost of a complete set of dentures, supported by dental implants, is about $34,000.
Paying for Dental Implants
An increasing number of insurance companies are beginning to recognize the long-term benefits of dental implants and will provide some coverage toward their cost. It’s worth asking if your insurance company to provide the cost they would pay for dentures or a bridge to be put toward dental implants.
We work with Care Credit, a company that offers low, monthly payment plans for healthcare procedures that are not commonly covered by insurance, like dental implants.
