What are the different types of dental implants?

There are various dental implant solutions designed to address specific patient needs. Some of the different dental implant solutions include:

Single Tooth Implants: Used to replace a single missing tooth with an implant and crown.

Implant-Supported Bridges: These replace multiple missing teeth using fewer implants than individual tooth replacements.

Implant-Supported Dentures: These provide stability and support for removable dentures, preventing slippage.

All-on-4 or All-on-6: A fixed bridge supported by a small number of implants (usually 4 or 6) to replace an entire arch of teeth.

Each of these solutions is tailored to specific situations and patient needs, making dental implant treatment versatile and effective. Our dentist will recommend the most suitable option based on your individual circumstances.

How much do dental implants cost?

Single Tooth Implant: The cost for a single dental implant can range from $3,000 to $6,000 or more.

Full Arch or All-on-4 Implants: Full arch implant-supported dentures or the “All-on-4” procedure can cost between $15,000 and $30,000 or more per arch.

Additional Costs: In addition to the implant itself, you may have additional costs for consultations, X-rays, 3D scans, bone grafts (if necessary), and any other preliminary procedures. These can add to the overall cost.
