Determining Dental Implant Cost
Patients plagued with decayed or missing teeth can rejuvenate their smile and their confidence with dental implants. This tooth replacement system provides unparalleled stability for implant-supported restorations like crowns and dentures. Patients considering dental implants may be understandably concerned about dental implant cost. The team at Delany Dental Care in Gurnee, IL, is pleased to provide exceptional outcomes for dental implant procedures at a competitive rate that can fit into most budgets. Ultimately, however, dental implants can help safeguard your oral health as well as address cosmetic concerns associated with missing teeth, so patients should consider the procedure as an investment in their long-term oral health.
An Investment in Your Health & Confidence
Many patients choose to proceed with receiving dental implants when they weigh the costs and benefits of the treatment. The confidence that comes with not having to worry about their restorations slipping out of place while performing everyday activities is invaluable. Additionally, while other tooth replacement procedures may be less costly, dental implants provide something that other solutions cannot: helping patients retain a healthy jawbone and facial structure. Because dental implants effectively replace tooth roots and send regenerative signals to the jawbone, your facial structure will not be affected and you will not need to pay more out of pocket to correct the effects of missing tooth roots.
Determining Your Costs
There are a number of different factors that can affect your total cost, including the number of implants needed, whether you require any preparatory procedures, and what—if any—costs will be covered by your dental insurance plan. The only way to receive an accurate estimate is by coming in for an evaluation.
Please keep in mind that these costs are estimates that do not take into account your unique oral structure and health requirements. Patients requiring replacement of only one tooth can receive a single dental implant, an abutment, and a dental crown for approximately $4,800. Full arch dentures supported by traditional dental implants can range from $5,000 to $10,000. Patients who choose All-on-4 implants will pay approximately $12,500 per arch, while the All-on-5 implant prosthesis will cost approximately $15,000 per arch.
Case Complexity & Sedation Type
Patients who need other procedures performed in order to receive dental implants—such as bone grafts, sinus lifts, or tooth extraction—can naturally expect to pay more in total for the procedure. Additionally, the treatment area and surgical dexterity required to deliver the treatment you need could also affect your bottom line.

Another significant factor to consider when collecting cost information is sedation types. Patients who are receiving a relatively straightforward procedure and who do not have dental anxiety may be able to undergo their surgery with only nitrous oxide or oral sedation. These methods can moderately increase your bottom line. Alternatively, patients receiving several implants and undergoing extensive surgery, or patients who have an extreme fear of dental procedures may need a stronger sedation option, such as IV (intravenous) sedation. IV sedation requires the presence of an anesthesiologist, which will significantly increase your total costs.
