How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
This is not an easy question to answer, many different factors affect the cost of dental implants from patient to patient.
- The type of implant used
- The location of the implant
- The dental implant material used
- The amount of coverage provided by your dental insurance
Typically the cost of dental implants ranges between $2-3,000 depending on those factors listed above. Full mouth reconstructive implants are significantly more costly, they can start around $24,000 and be as much as $96,000.

What Are The Advantages Of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are typically stronger than their alternatives which include:
Are You Eligible For Dental Implants?
If you are afflicted by certain medical conditions; such as active diabetes, cancer, or periodontal disease, you may require additional treatment before a procedure is implemented.
Smoking is another issue that can prevent dental implants from being a viable solution. If you are a smoker, your dentist may ask you to quit smoking, smoking is very damaging to your oral health and can decrease the likely hood of a successful implant.
What Is The Success Rate Of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are easily the most successful procedures performed in dentistry. The success rate typically is at or above 90% for both lower and upper jaw implants! The upper jaw is slightly less (but only about 5%) successful than the lower jaw as it is less dense. This decrease in density means it is typically harder to perform the procedure of the implant.
What Are The Risks Of Dental Implants?
There are some risks that may cause failure of the dental implants even though these failures as stated before; only account for about 5-10% of all dental implants. Here are some reasons that failure may occur:
- Poor positioning of the implant
- Possible infection of the implant area
- Loosening of the crown on top of the implant
