Dental Implant Costs
The rst question that we are usually asked regarding dental implants is, “How much does a dental implant cost?”
There are many variables that affect what your dental implant will cost. During your research, you may see a large range of prices advertised for dental implants. Basing your decision to proceed with an implant based solely on the cheapest price may not give you the outsome you want.
The questions you should be asking are:
- What kind of an implant am I getting?
- Where is the implant made?
- Do you recommend the final restoration material based on bone density and bite strength?
- What is the reputation of the implant manufacturer? (Many of the cheaper implants are manufactured in countries like China with very questionable quality control measures) What research is there to support this type of implant?
- Are there long term studies showing the success rates of these implants?
- How much time will I need to be off work?
- Do I have to visit multiple locations for various parts of this procedure?
- How much pain or discomfort can I expect? Will I have to have stitches?
- What kind of temporary tooth will I be wearing (if necessary)?
- How many visits do you need to have the procedure completed?
- How long will it take to recover from the procedure?
You should try to find out as much as possible about the cost of the finished solution, not just about the cost of one component of that solution.
You need to know what the complete implant (the actual implant, abutment, crown and surgery) is going to cost you and what the pros and cons of each solution are that may be an option for you.

PAYING FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS
Costs can be offset partially through insurance, as many Dental Insurance Plans offer partial dental implant coverage.
Dental Implants are also considered a medical expense, and can be used to offset your net income on your income tax return. Depending on your income tax bracket, you can save up to 40% of the cost of your dental implants and related dental procedures.
