How much do dental implants cost?

Cost of a single dental implant in United States is $2200 on average. However, the final price depends on many different factors, including:

  • Dental implant type (single, multiple or full mouth)
  • Dentist expertise (more experienced dentists will charge a lot more)
  • Your location (big cities are very expensive, see map below for more details),
  • Ammount of dental insurance you have (if any),
  • Material used for dental implant (titanium, zirconium),
  • Additional procedures performed (extractions, bone grafts),
  • Additional costs (in case something goes wrong).

Single tooth implants cost

Full mouth dental implants cost

Cost of these can range from $25,000 (withouth additional procedures) to enormous $100,000 (including additional procedures).

Please note that most people DO NOT qualify for a full mouth dental implants.

What are these “additional procedures”?

These procedures sometimes (not always, every case is different) need to be perfomed during dental implants placement:

  • tissue grafting
  • dental extractions
  • sinus lifting
  • computer termography scans
  • bone grafting

The prices above reflect only to the dental implants placement stage. You will need to pay extra for the abutment (extension of the implant metal post) and crown  (your new artificial tooth).

Costs of abutment and crown together is around $500 – $2500 extra to the single dental implant. Sometimes you will need a tooth flipper, too (this one is around $100, depends on type).
