Dental implants are the best option for replacing missing or extracted teeth. Compared to other restorative solutions, they are the most durable, long-lasting, and aesthetically pleasing choice. If these benefits have led you to consider getting dental implants, the price may be one of your greatest concerns.
We encourage you to arrange a consultation at our Oakton dental practice to learn exactly how much the placement of dental implants will cost based on your unique needs. During this appointment, we will also discuss financing services that can help make treatment more affordable.
Dental Implant Pricing Basics
The average cost of an implant, abutment, and crown is in the $3,000-$5,000 range. However, the price that you can expect to pay will vary depending on your particular circumstances.
Some factors that influence the cost of dental implants include:
- The type of implant used
- The type of restoration used (crown, bridge, or implant-supported denture)
- The number of implants used
- The number of procedures required
- The need for additional surgeries such as bone grafting
- Your dentist’s training and experience
Are Dental Implants the Most Expensive Option?
Dental implants have a higher upfront cost than other tooth replacement options. That said, when looking at their longevity and benefits, they compare favorably to the alternatives.
Choices such as dentures can have additional expenses that you may not have considered. Since the average lifespan of a denture is 7-10 years, you may end up paying for it more than once. Implants, on the other hand, can last a lifetime with proper care. And only implants help prevent jawbone loss — something that could turn out to be a costly problem in the future.
