The Cost of Dental Implants

A consultation is required to determine how much your dental implant treatment will cost. During this appointment, Dr. Brace will thoroughly examine your entire mouth and medical history. This is necessary since no two patients are alike and will need different care. There are many factors that will go into the total cost of your treatment:

  • How many teeth are missing
  • Where the missing are located
  • They type of restoration needed to replace the teeth
  • The number of dental implants required to support the restoration
  • The size the implants needed
  • If your dental insurance offers any type of coverage
  • Current oral health status

After your evaluation, our team can accurately estimate the total cost of your teeth implants. For your reference, a single dental implant can cost up to $5,000 while a full mouth replacement will cost tens of thousands of dollars.

Dental Implants and Insurance

Are you curious to know if dental insurance will cover your dental implants procedure? You will need to be prepared to examine your insurance coverage. Dental insurance companies and what they cover will differ from policy to policy. Basic dental insurance coverage does not typically include teeth implants. Unfortunately, they are considered a cosmetic procedure with most companies.

We have seen some policies cover certain portions that are involved in the overall process of replacing missing teeth with implant supported restorations. Most dental insurance offers some coverage for tooth extractions and the dental restoration (such as the bridge, denture, or dental crown).
