In 2012, the average cost for a single tooth implant ranged between $3,000 to $4,500, reports Time.com. The cost of a dental implant varies, depending on the specific procedure needed and the patient's particular needs, explains the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Dentists should always provide cost estimates in advance.
Factors that influence the cost and duration of dental implant procedures include the techniques and materials involved, the condition of the patient's jaw, and whether any restorative work is needed, according to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. The site recommends asking the dental provider about financing options in the event that the patient's dental insurance does not cover the cost of the procedure.
