How Much Should I Expect to Pay for Dental Implants?

Dental implants range from about $1000 to $3500 per tooth as of 2014. While the cost can be prohibitive, dental implants are a permanent and natural-looking solution to missing teeth. Dental implants require about six months of treatment to complete the process.

The cost per tooth includes the initial dental screw placement in the jaw, as well as the fitting and placement of a crown in the open space. Dental implants can be used to cover one tooth, several teeth or all of the teeth as needed. Because dental implants are viewed as a cosmetic procedure, they are not covered by most insurance companies.
