A conservative estimate of the cost of one dental implant is approximately $3,000 to $4,500, as of 2015, according to MedicineNet. This estimate includes surgery for placing the implant, the implant crown and all related components. Prices for dental implants fluctuate by region and dentist.
Most dental insurance plans do not cover the cost of dental implants, notes MedicineNet. However, some policies cover the cost of the implant crown. Because insurers view dental implants as an elective or cosmetic procedure, most plans refuse to offer coverage for them. The success rate for dental implants is close to 98 percent, and many dentists consider implants the standard recommendation for replacing missing teeth.
