Dental Implant Costs
How much should you pay for a Dental Implant
There are two major costs involved in dental implant treatment. The first is the implant itself and the second is the restoration (tooth or teeth) that is anchored by the implant. In the United States, these two procedures are usually done by two seperate dentists thus increasing the cost to the patient substantially. Fees for these services vary considerably. I have seen fees for a single implant that range from $ 300.00 to $ 5 ,000.00. I think that an average fee for the placement of each implant is about $2,500.00.
Restorations on implants vary to a much greater degree and an individual can pay as much as several thousand dollars for a single restoration up to over$ 80 ,000.00 for a complete rehabilitation involving dental implants. Fortunately, there are implant restorations available for most people that are in the realistic range and allow many more people today to find a suitable solution to replacing missing teeth. You have to make sure that the dentist that you choose is familiar with all of the restorative options to suit your needs and that he can provide the treatment at a fee that you can live with.
