Cost Overview For Dental Implants
“As an oral surgeon I feel it is important to give you the exact cost of your dental implants. Some dentists advertise the cost of dental implants as only the price for the post, but fail to disclose the total cost of the porcelain crown and surgery. Better dental promises to give you one price that covers the total cost of your dental implants.” – Dr David Draper, DDS
Single Dental Implants
The average cost for a single implant is between $1,500 and $2,500. The least expensive option is “immediate implant placement” which is possible immediately after tooth removal if there is adequate bone for placement. However in complicated cases where jaw bone density is diminished or other complications exist due to injury or trauma, the cost may increase between $6,000 and $7,500. In more complicated scenarios there may not be adequate bone for a dental implant. In these cases the tooth socket is seeded with synthetic or cadaveric bone. This is called a bone graft. The socket is then grafted closed using your own gum tissue. It is allowed to heal for 3 to 4 months. We have staff in our Apex office who happy to sit down and talk with you about a reasonable 6 to 12 payment plan to help manage the cost of treatment. During the price quote process we can also help you find financing that offers no down payment or a longer payment schedule.
