Frequently Asked Questions About Tooth Implant Costs,
This four-part article series provides a comprehensive FAQ guide to the cost of dental implants and the
surgical procedures required to place them.
Welcome back to our four-part article series on tooth implant costs. In our previous article
post, the second installment of the series, we discussed why dental implants are worth the
investment and which dental procedures are covered by the quote provided to you by your
dentist. In this article, the third installment, we shall continue to address more of your FAQs,
beginning with a look at the many benefits and advantages of this sophisticated and long-
Question: What are the key benefits offered by tooth implant costs?
Answer: Tooth implant costs may initially seem higher than most other tooth replacement
technologies, but if you examine the benefits of these ingenious dental devices and take into
account their much greater lifespan, it’s not hard to understand why! You wouldn’t expect to
pay less for a brand new Ferrari than for an old and beat-up Mazda 323. You also wouldn’t
expect the Ferrari to break down constantly and require attention from the mechanic! This is
precisely the difference afforded by tooth implant costs. Dental implants are the high
performance technology of the dental world. They
last several decades and seldom require any
restoration during that period. They are also
functionally and aesthetically superior to traditional
tooth replacement technologies, such as dental
bridges and removable dentures.
But tooth implant costs are about so much more
than simply getting the best, most comfortable and
functionally and cosmetically superior solution to
missing teeth. Tooth implant costs also afford
patients a technology that plays an integral role in
preserving the health of the underlying jaw bone. Dental implants are the only tooth
replacement solution that replaces the root of the missing tooth as well as the crown. The
titanium root of the implant transfers the forces associated with eating directly into this hard
tissue, essentially keeping it exercised, stimulated and healthy. By preventing atrophy of the
jaw bone, tooth implant costs help to preserve a patient’s youthful facial contours, while
preventing the destabilization of the entire dental arch.
To summarize briefly, tooth implant costs provide patients with:
• A beautifully restored, natural-looking smile
• Ultimate confidence in the social and professional environment
• Fully-restored bite functionality and the ability to eat all the foods they love
• A new tooth that feels like a natural tooth and doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort
• Tooth implant costs promote proper articulation in speech
• Dental implants last 20, 30 years and even longer if cared for properly
• They promote the health of the underlying jaw bone
• Tooth implant costs provide patients with a solution that actually helps to guard against
further issues of tooth loss.
Question: I’ve heard that there are newer, more modern dental implant
procedures that have actually reduced tooth implant costs. Is this true?
Answer: More sophisticated dental implant procedures have indeed been developed, but they
don’t reduce the individual tooth
implant costs. Rather, they have
markedly reduced the overall cost
of oral rehabilitation! The All-on-4
is an advanced tooth replacement
solution for patients that have lost
most, if not all of their original
adult teeth. It gives patients a fixed
and non-removable set of teeth that are virtually indistinguishable - in function, fit, feel and
appearance - from a natural set of teeth. Better yet, the cost savings patients are looking at
• Average tooth implant costs savings of $25,000 for straight-forward cases,
• Average tooth implant costs savings of $45,000 for more complex cases.
