As of 2015, the average total cost for a dental implant, abutment and crown is $4,250, states the Dental Implant Cost Guide. Costs range from $1,500 to $6,000 but can be higher depending on other required procedures, such as tooth extractions, X-rays and bone grafts.
The cost of a dental implant varies based on the particular provider a patient uses, his geographical location, the number of implants needed, the number of teeth being replaced, and the type of implant or procedure, explains the Dental Implant Cost Guide. The cost of dental implants also varies depending on the country in which the procedure takes place. Patients can potentially save money by traveling to another country to obtain their dental implants. Some medical school will have a discounted rate since students are doing the work. Insurance may also cover some of the cost if the patient goes to an approved dentist to have the procedure done.
