Dental Implants Price Comparison – Know The Expectations

by | Dec 27, 2018 | Dental Implants | 14 comments

Dental implants restore form and function to people who have lost or missing teeth. Because they perform such important work and because they are expected to remain in your mouth for such a long time, they are something of an investment. And, when the cost of implants is compared to other tooth replacement options, dental implants are worth it in the long run.

Why A Dental Implants Price Difference Is So Common?

It’s not uncommon to have Internet ads shouting low prices for implants at you from every corner of your browser. But it’s actually impossible to quote for implants without seeing and assessing a patient. Everyone’s case is completely different and requires a different approach. That is why it’s important to find a dentist that offers consultation to determine the exact treatment plan for your case.

The Cost Of Dental Implants

A dental implant procedure can be complex and can take a relatively long time to complete because it is made up of a series of smaller procedures.  Each smaller procedure has to be fully completed before you can move on to the next step.

Because osseointegration is so important for the success of your dental implant surgery, the healing time for the implant can take several months to reach completion.

When your dentist presents you the cost of dental implants he will give you a comprehensive treatment plan to cover the entire process.

Dental Implants Cost – What Can You Expect?

The cost of your implant procedure depends on:

How many teeth do you need to replace?
Of course, a single implant will cost considerably less than the all-on-four implant system, or multiple placements in your mouth.

What type of implants will you have?
There are hundreds of brands around the world, all ranging in price. Dental implants are however, very much like other things in life: you get what you pay for. If you are going to opt for a cheaper solution, you may not have the same quality as a more expensive implant brand.

Do you need any additional procedures?
If you require a tooth extraction, sinus lift or bone graft surgery, these additional procedures will influence the total cost of your implant procedure.

How Does The Cost Of Implants Compare To Other Tooth Replacement Options?

While the initial cost or outlay required for dental implants is higher than its alternatives like bridges or dentures, there are maintenance costs associated with the alternatives that implants do not require. A denture or bridge will need to be replaced, maybe even as often as every five years. If you compare the cost of these replacements with a 30-year dental implant, the implant may cost less.

The Knock-On Costs

Wearing a bridge requires that other teeth in your mouth be filed down to make space in your mouth. This makes those teeth more susceptible to decay and cavities. Not only will you be required to exercise a higher level of dental hygiene, you may experience some complications with your weaker teeth that your dentist will need to address.

Because dentures sit above your gum line, they too can present with challenges later on. Dentures do not replace the missing tooth at the root, so further bone loss is likely to occur, because the jaw bone does not receive stimulation from your tooth’s roots.

Patients who wear dentures may be susceptible to irritation from their dentures, as well as drifting of the other teeth as they try to fill the gap left by the missing tooth. Drifting teeth can loosen over time, and be lost if they are not corrected.

Comparing The Costs Of Dental Implants

The placement of a single dental implant without additional procedures can range from $3000 to $7000. If you need a sinus lift or bone graft, this figure may increase.

The cost of dental implants for the All-on-4 treatment usually ranges between $15000 and $30000.

If you do receive a quote from a dental practitioner who has not assessed you, the figure will not be accurate and you should consider this the starting price for your treatment. Book a consultation at your local dental clinic to get a more accurate treatment plan cost.

    I am really staggered at the amount that local dentists charge for dental implants. Now I see why many of my friends visit India for them. But still, I can say it’s far too risky. I know people who had good implants from overseas but not everyone can get the same experience. Prevention is always better than cure. At least when you know how to be hygienic with your teeth; you wouldn’t have to waste thousands of dollars over and over again on getting them fixed.

    Before having had a couple done a few years back, I’ve really wondered why dental implants are expensive. But just like all the factors discussed above the cost is justified. I currently have a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile. So, considering this return of investment, it was all worth it.

    Let me say to anyone that has one ounce of speculation or doubt on dental implants, it’s all in YOUR head. You need to dissolve any doubt. You will not regret it one iota. In fact, once you’ve done it , you will wonder why it was so hard to make the decision and why you didn’t do it earlier!!! It’s totally worth every penny to have a complete set of teeth. My only regret is waiting so long to get it done.

    This is interesting. I know that the dental implant cost may
    vary but I haven’t realized it would depend on a number of things.
    At this point, I must say implants do cost more upfront than the other alternatives. But, I’ve done some homework and I know how these alternatives tend to wear down overtime. So I guess the bottom line is, it’s much more cost-efficient in the long run.

    I have a few missing teeth and I’m considering dental implants
    to replace them. But, I wanted to make sure whether or not implants would be a financially feasible option for me. Judging from what I see here, it appears that they would be. Anyway, the best alternatives for anything are often expensive so I had no doubts of going for implants. I just had to make sure that my decision is right.

    Nice info! I never thought there are several important points that should be kept in mind prior to getting dental implants. And, looking at all the points, dental implants are truly expensive. But considering the longevity offered by dental implants, we all should
    look at the cost of dental implants as an investment instead of an expense. Other alternatives may be affordable but their affordability can be short-lived.

    I have missing teeth for a while now and it always makes me feel embarrassed with my speech and smile. So when I heard about plenty of people turning to implants for help, I was desperate to get one for myself as well. I thought I was all ready to have dental implants until I got here. I didn’t know I should also mentally prepare for their fees. Anyway, I still believe that the price is going to be worth paying. I just hope I won’t end up looking at a large fee because I need lots of work besides the implants.
