So how much is a dental implant? Does it fit your current pocket or do you need to save up a huge sum first?

1. What constitutes the total cost of a dental implant?

The implant treatment itself is complicated, including many stages and multiple parts in each. Every part is charged at a different fee. These steps are:

  • Thorough dental examination, such as 3D imaging;
  • Tooth extraction if needed;
  • Dental implant placement;
  • Abutment insertion;
  • Generation of the top tooth restoration, like a dental crown or bridge;
  • Prosthesis placement.

The factors that determine the cost of each component of an implant

The fee for a dental implant part or step differs largely, depending on many variables, including:

  • The kind of implants you are getting;
  • The number of implants;
  • The materials to be used;
  • The complexity of the treatment;
  • Your geographical location;
  • The clinic that provides the service;
  • The expertise of your treating doctor;
  • Whether there are any additional procedures, like a tooth extraction, sinus lift, or bone graft to be conducted.

2. Costs according to types of dental implant

2.1. Single tooth implant

No one purchases just a single implant as it is only the ceramic or metal screw that is inserted into the jawbone. Moreover, you also need an abutment, which is the part that connects the implant post to the top prosthesis. All of these components are charged separately.

Some patients are also required to receive a sinus lift or bone graft for sufficient jawbone density to hold the implant secure in place. That will also add to the total fee. The total cost of implant in the U.S. varies from $3,100- $5,800.

2.2. Multiple tooth implant

If you seek to have more than a tooth replaced and these are consecutive, there are more options for you to choose from and hence more pricing choices.

For instance, if you want to restore 3 to 4 teeth that are next to each other, you can receive a dental bridge held by only 2 implants, which helps lower the final fee: around $6,000 to $10,000 in the U.S. This is because 2 implants can support 3 to 4 neighboring teeth and this is less costly than 4 separate implants.

2.3. Entire mouth implant

There are varying restoration approaches for patients with complete tooth loss, and thereby, it comes in a series of costs.

The most expensive option is an individual implant for every tooth, costing around $60,000 or $90,000 in the U.S. This approach enables greatest preservation of the remaining teeth if they are healthy enough.

A more affordable option is implant-supported dentures. However, this requires extraction of all remaining teeth to replace the entire mouth with 2 full arches of artificial teeth. The arch is held in place by 4 to 6 implants each in the upper and lower jaw. This is also commonly referred to as all-on-four or all-on-six dental implants. The fee of all-on-four can vary from $24,000 to 50,000 in the States.

2.4. Extra fees from dental implants

Before making up your mind about your treatment, always make sure to have a thorough discussion with your dental care provider regarding pricing and any additional procedures. 

As getting implants takes multiple months, you will likely pay the fees over the course of months. Most clinics offer payment plans to support your treatment. So you may also want to talk to your dentist about this as well.

3. How come dental implants are so expensive?

The high cost is from the pricing of the implant components and materials as well as the long duration and complexity level of the treatment procedures. It can take patients multiple months from the beginning to the end for a dental implant treatment.

Generally speaking, dental implants are more expensive than other tooth restoration treatments like dental crowns, bridges, and dentures. In spite of the higher costs, dental implants are more durable than other tooth restoration methods and don’t need a replacement as often. The benefits you can obtain from dental implants are numerous, which are considered to outweigh the costs for most patients.

4. Dental tourism in Vietnam

If you are looking for quality and safe dentistry but fail to afford it where you live, you can consider traveling to another country for a treatment at lower costs yet with the same quality and outcome. You can also have a wonderful trip with friends and family while you are there as well. Killing two birds with one stone, who would not take it?
