How Much Does a Dental Implant Cost?

The best dental implants are from Branemark which are made in Sweden and have the lowest failure rate as far as implants go. A lot of cheap brands are now available and it is difficult to predict how good they are. Branemark is the original inventor of implants and these have been around for as long as tooth implants have been around.

Dental implant cost can vary from one make to another and their life spans vary too. A Branemark implant costs around US $ 3500 each.

The teeth implants procedure can take anywhere between 2-6 months depending on the quality and density of the your jaw bone receiving the implant. Costs can vary from $ 1500 – $ 5000 depending on which area you stay in.

On the east or west coast the dental implant cost can range up to $ 5000 per tooth implants but areas that fall in midwest and the south the costs can vary from $ 700 to $ 1000 per implant. The only way you will know the cost is to call around. Do not go to just anyone and do not choose someone because they are "cheap". Remember you get what you pay for this is VERY true about tooth implants too.

The best value can be found at the dental colleges. Students may do it but only under the supervision of actual dentist / instructors. Mostly it the professors who do the job and demonstrate to their students. So, it may take more time as step-by-step instructions are given to the students.

Waiting times are also more as there is a long waiting list for patients at dental schools. The time frame can be as long as 6 months. The dental implant cost about $ 750 which is about 1/4 the cost of at regular dentists.
