We know that cost is a factor for many individuals when it comes to getting dental implants.
How much do dental implants cost?
Several factors can affect the total cost of a dental implant procedure and tooth restoration. Payment options and financing can be discussed during the consultation. Much of the final quote for dental implants will depend on the state of the patient’s mouth, including the gums and the underlying bone structure, and how many implants are needed to achieve the desired result.
Factors that can affect the final cost of implants include:
- The number of teeth missing / location of missing teeth
- Type of implant process required
- Existing periodontal disease
- Existing bone loss
- Needed extractions
- Preoperative procedures
If there is a need for bone loss treatments or tooth extractions prior to the dental implant process, these costs can often be incorporated into the entire cost of the implants and financed as a full mouth restoration.
When looking at other methods of replacing teeth, it is clear that the investment of getting dental implants is worth it in the long run.

As you can see, dental implants are a modern, advanced way of getting teeth replaced. When you take into account the level of skill, precision, and advanced technology used on dental implants, it is hard to find a better, longer-lasting option. Other tooth replacement methods do not add up.
So, while the initial cost of dental implants might seem high, the long-term investment is cost effective. You will not have to return every few years to replace the implant(s). Plus, the functionality and health of a dental implant is better than for other tooth replacement methods.
Many people wonder, “Can I afford dental implants?” The answer is almost always yes – where there is a will, there is a way, and there are many financial options that can help patients manage the initial cost of their dental implants.
