Pricing For Dental Implants

When people begin to investigate the possible options for replacing their missing teeth, they quickly realize that dental implants are far and away the best solution. An implant restores the look and very nearly the full function of a missing tooth. It’s almost like replacing a real tooth with another real tooth. No other restoration method even comes close to providing the same result.

Are Dental Implants Affordable?

When it comes to specific pricing, asking “how much does a dental implant cost” is a bit like asking “how much does a new car cost.” In the latter case, for example, is the car in question a Ford or a Ferrari? The details make a world of difference. With implants there are numerous factors that must be accounted for to get a definitive price. That being said, we understand that for planning purposes even a ballpark figure is helpful. Here are the basic costs for getting a single dental implant at Harrell Dental Implant Center.

3D Cone Beam CT scan – $138

A 3-dimensional scan is extremely important for safe and painless placement of an implant. The image confirms that you have enough bone to hold the implant (or reveals the need for grafting) and shows the exact placement of the nerve so it can be avoided. This step is necessary for every consultation and implant procedure.

Surgical guide – $525

Using the 3D scan, a surgical guide is created to take all the guesswork out of placing your implant. The guide is laid over your teeth and gums and precisely regulates the installation depth and angle of your implant. A guide is used for more than 80 percent of implant procedures in our office.

Implant – $1800-2200

The implant is the actual titanium screw that is anchored in your jaw to secure your new artificial tooth. The cost varies based on the size and location of the the implant placed.

Abutment and Crown – $1800-2400

The abutment is the attachment point between the implant and the porcelain crown, which is your new tooth. For front teeth, due to the angulation of the implant placed in the bone, we utilize a custom fabricated titanium or zirconium abutment, with a separate crown made to attach to the abutment.

For most back teeth, bicuspids and molars, the abutment and crown are integrated into one piece to form what is called a “screw retained” crown.

Total cost – $3700-5300. This should be considered an “all-in” price for a single dental implant, including the visit, the dentist’s costs, etc.

Therefore, when comparing costs with another practice make sure their price also covers the same items. Many times you will find that a lower-priced implant doesn’t include the costs of all the items in the advertised total. On the other hand, some parts of the procedure may be left out completely by the low-cost leaders to offer you a rock bottom price. The trade-off is your confidence that you are receiving the best care possible.

Possible add-on costs

For some patients there could be additional costs to receive an implant. If the 3D scan shows that a bone graft is necessary to make an implant possible, this expense would be separate from the above price.

Bone graft – $524

Includes the use of graft material and membrane used to help the graft stay in place, plus sutures or stitches to secure the graft and membrane.

Similarly, if the implanted tooth is in the front of the mouth, a patient may opt to have a flipper made to wear for the three months that the implant is healing before the crown can be attached. This would also be an added expense.

Flipper – $450-600 (based on how many teeth are replaced)

This temporary removable prosthetic appliance can replace one or multiple teeth while your implants are healing.

All-on-4 implant – $26,000-30,000

This is the “all-in” price for replacing an entire arch of teeth (upper OR lower) with an All-on-4 implant appliance.

What about dental insurance?

We will gladly file your dental insurance on your behalf. Whether we are in-network or out-of-network for your provider, you will receive your full benefit. Typically, however, the benefit limit is between $1000-1,500, so even at the maximum there will be out-of-pocket expenses. You should check with your provider for a full explanation of your coverage.

If you need help covering the remainder or any portion of the cost, financing is available.
