How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
In the United States, the average cost for a single-tooth replacement with a dental implant and crown ranges from $3,000 to $4,500. The average cost to replace a full set of teeth with implants and dentures is between $20,000 and $45,000.
There are several factors that can influence how much dental implants cost, so final prices can vary widely. Take a look at what our dentists in West Valley City, UT, consider when determining the cost of dental implants.
Number of Implants
It makes sense that dental implant costs rise when you need to replace a greater number of natural teeth. A dental implant procedure to replace one tooth requires a single dental implant, one abutment, and one dental crown. Restoring a full dental arch can require six to eight implants, the same number of abutments, and a custom denture. The added materials, increased surgical complexity, and time it takes for your dentist to restore your smile will raise the price of your care, but the lasting investment in your appearance and oral health will be well worth it.
Implant restorations can be made of various materials. Our practice in West Valley City prefers to use porcelain and zirconia. Both materials are durable, natural-looking, and resistant to staining, but some patients prefer zirconia for its especially lifelike qualities. Zirconia restorations tend to cost more than porcelain, but your results will appear seamless regardless of which material is right for you. It's also important to keep in mind that larger restorations like dentures require more material for fabrication, which can increase costs.
If you have a pre-existing oral health issue, like tooth decay or periodontal disease, it must be addressed before the dental implant procedure. Additionally, because the jawbone deteriorates after losing natural teeth, it can reach a point of atrophy where it cannot support dental implants. Fortunately, procedures like bone grafts are available to restore lost tissue and improve your candidacy. Including necessary oral health care or a bone graft in your dental implant treatment plan will increase your treatment costs.
The dental implant procedure is relatively painless. In most cases, our dentists can complete the process using only local anesthesia. However, we know that many patients are hesitant about treatment, whether due to dental anxiety, dental sensitivity, trouble sitting comfortably for extended periods, or other reasons. That's why we make sedation available. You can choose from nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or IV sedation administered by an anesthesiologist. Sedation costs extra, but it can help you relax without fear or pain during your treatment.
