Cost of Dental Implants
The most frequent question people ask about a dental implant procedure is the cost of dental implants. When people compare dental implants to other tooth replacement methods, they may seem costly.
However, these implants are more affordable than people think. Instead of considering them an expense, you can look at the cost of dental implants as an investment. A single dental implant can cost anywhere between $1500 to $2000, while regular dental implants can burn a hole in your pocket for around $3000-$5000. However, depending on insurance reductions and the average costs in your local area, these numbers can go up or down.
Unlike dentures and bridges, they can prevent jawbone deterioration, as after experiencing multiple tooth loss, your face shape changes, causing your jawbone to deteriorate. Dental implants help restore your jawbone’s integrity so you regain your smile, confidence, and the ability to chew and speak normally again.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant works as a tooth root, a titanium post surgically inserted into your jawbone beneath the gum line. Usually, the dentist attaches a crown on top of the dental implant to make it appear like your natural tooth. A dental implant feels, functions, and looks like your natural teeth.

Benefits of a Dental Implant
1) A Dental Implant Acts Like Your Natural Teeth
2) Dental Implants Help to Prevent Bone Loss
3) Dental Implants Keep You Free of Gum Disease
The gap created by missing teeth is a trap for food and bacteria, leading to gum disease. A dental implant is necessary to cover these gaps.
4) Dental Implants Prevent Facial Sagging and Premature Aging
An unwanted effect of multiple missing teeth is facial sagging. The lower third of your face may start to change, gradually closing the distance between your nose and your chin. Changes can include thinning lips, excess wrinkles around the mouth, and a more pointed chin, making you look much older than your actual age.
5) Dental Implants Help Keep Adjacent Teeth Stable
Factors Affecting the Cost of Dental Implants
The following factors affect the cost of dental implants:
● The Implant Posts
● Preparatory Costs
You may need some preparatory treatments before implant placement. In some cases, Dr. Wimmergren may recommend extraction if you have damaged or decayed teeth.
● Sedation Dentistry Options
● Replacement Teeth
● Dental Insurance and Financing
Dental Insurance varies but may cover other preparatory treatments, dental sedation options, and even replacement teeth. Talk to your dental insurance coordinator about the cost of each step of your implant-supported tooth replacement treatment plan. This ensures you take the time to discuss financing options so that your implant plan fits your lifestyle.
