In our practice, dental implant costs range from $1900 to $2200. We have a 3D CT scanner in our office which helps with precise placement of the implant in the bone for best results and avoid risks ofthe procedure.

The cost of implants depends on how much the patient values their smile

Placing a dental implant is like mimicking nature. Teeth are naturally born in bone, and yet we as humans are trying to get bone to stick to the metallic surface. It takes intelligent thinking and forward planning to place an implant so that it stays in the bone and supports a crown.

So just think what amazing science has allowed metal to stick to bone and appreciate that costs can reflect the expertise associated with it.

I hear this question quite often "what is the average price". 

The real questions is what do you get with it?

There are many different types of dental implant manufacturers using different materials, dental implant crowns, ceramists making the crowns and doctors planning and executing the treatment. 

Quality materials and highly skilled providers tend to be more expensive.

On average the surgery costs $2000 and the crown $2000.  This would be a reasonable budget for a single tooth.... if its less then you need to find out why, if its more you need to find out why.

Best of luck.

It is easiest to talk about the single implant. Dental implant treatment ranges from having a single implant to 20 implants and a superstructure of prosthetics ranging from a removable denture over 2 implants to fixed crown and bridge work over 20 implants. A single dental implant in the hands of a hight trained, busy, outstanding, quality based specialist should cost in the range of $2200 to $2500. The crown should cost between $2000 to $3000 performed by a skilled specialist such a prosthodontist. General dentists tend to charge around $1500 for the surgery and same for the crown. But make sure you shop around and meet the dentists and specialists with the best reputation and ask to see their own results (not others) to make sure they are capable of doing what it is that you want.  Remember you "get what you pay for" and choosing to go cheap could end up costing you a fortune in the end.

I would say the cost depends on a few things

1. Bone grafting required?

2. Is a custom abutment needed to restore case?

3. Does the clinician use different companies for different situations (ex ankylos implant in anterior and biohorizon implant in posterior)

With this being said make sure the price is for the entire procedure start to finish and not just the surgical component, many times a specialist will place the implant and the general dentist will restore it so you have multiple offices to deal with

The only difference in cost between a molar and incisor would be the need for bone grafting or custom abutments. The cost of the implant should not vary. Be careful when getting a quote for implants that the price included everything. Unfortunately, some dental offices will advertise a very low cost for an implant but after placing the implant they will tell you that grafting was not included, and neither was the cost of the abutment. You can't restore an implant without the abutment so why would a dental office advertise an implant without the abutment? It's done a lot in my area and I think it reflects on the integrity of the office as a whole. In summary: if you want to know the true cost of the implant, make sure the price quoted included the abutment and any necessary bone grafting. 

Good luck!

Dental implants when placed in mexico cost less than in the United States using the VERY same brand your home dentist uses, such as nobel Biocare, Zimmer, 3i, etc. The quality and procedure its the same and it is just close to your home and many patients do it every year, you should check for dental tourism. I hope this helps. Thank you.

Dental implants and Fees

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

There are many reasons for different fees for a dental implant. One reason is that there are over 150 different types of dental implants on the market. Some have a long history and some have only been on the market for a short time. Some manufacturers have standard parts and many are clones of the major companies. I would worry less about the implant fee and more about the experience of the person placing it for you. If you need bone grafting, or any additional procedures, this adds cost. Finally, the restorative portion is separate from the surgical part. On average to restore a tooth, a fee of 3000 to 3500 is an average fee.

Cost for impplants can vary widely.  There are several factors that come into play.  Is it in the visible area or aesthetic zone or not?  WHat kind of temporary do you want if any.  Implants basically range from about 1800-2200 for a reputable implant frm a reputable provider depending on your geographic location and whether they are using major brand or off-brand implants.  Be sure to ask for (Astra, Strauman, Biohorizons orone of the other major barands)  they have higher quality and will be servicable down the road.  A posterior implant then needs and abutment these range from 500-1500 depending on whether they are able to use a pre-fabricated abutment or need to make a custum abutment out of metal alloy or porcelain.  Implants in the anterior usuallt run higher because there are a lot more aesthetic demands.  To pull off an anterior single match implant is quit a feat.  Bewhare of bargains because the materials are typically inferior, the placement is inferior and the fit and look is not as good.  Misplaced imkplants are unesthetic and can become annoying food traps and don't survive as they should.  Lok not only for price, but for before and after photos of whover is doing it.  Ask how many they have done.
