When reviewing and comparing costs, it’s essential to consider that dental implants are “medical devices” that require a larger team of dental professionals. The placement of dental implants is both art and science. You are, in fact, buying a service rather than a product – a service that can change your life and give you permanent teeth that will last a lifetime.
First, here are the most commonly accepted figures: The total dental implant costs for a single dental implant to be placed and restored range on average from $3,000 to $6,000 per restored implant. The typical cost is usually around $4,500. To replace all your top or bottom teeth with full-arch fixed implant bridges – often referred to as All-on-4 – can cost from $15,000 to $30,000 (or more) per arch.
Can you find a dentist who can provide dental implants for less? Absolutely. You can always find someone cheaper, just like you can always find someone less skilled and with less experience.
