Your dentist has asked you to consider dental implants, but what about the costs?
Dental implants costs vary depending on the condition of your mouth, the type of dental implants and the quality of materials. That being said, here is the average cost of dental implants at an all-in-one center:
Procedure TypeSingle Tooth Implants
Procedure TypeOne Jaw: Upper or Lower
Procedure TypeFull-mouth Implants
* Prices vary across our financing partners
Though other treatments may seem less expensive than implants, it’s important to consider the long-term price. With dental implants, your mouth and teeth function more naturally. They integrate with your bone to prevent bone loss, help preserve your jaw structure, and allow normal eating. It is certainly an investment, but you’ll reap the benefits every single day.
Here are a few problems we see that drive up costs
- The jawbone has been compromised and bone grafting or a sinus lift is needed
- A tooth left without a connection on the opposing jaw changes the way you bite and allows teeth to shift
- Dentures leading to bone loss and causing damage to the jaw structure
- Partial dentures putting pressure on adjacent teeth and causing them to loosen and fall out
- A failed bridge that causes a significant amount of bone loss, making dental implant options more complicated
When we meet our patients, a majority of them have already gone through a constant history of dental work and maintenance. Their constant short-term “fixes” have caused them long-term problems (and costs).
As you do your research, be careful of dental implant clinics that provide a quote before seeing you in person for a 3-D CT scan. And if the price sounds too good to be true, it probably is. There is no “one price fits all” approach to pricing dental implants.

This is a big decision but we are here for you every step of the way.
Can you finance dental implants?
Yes! We offer financing through LendingClub, CareCredit, GreenSky, and Proceed Finance. When you come in for your free consultation, we’ll see if you qualify for financing and payment plans. We’ll also check your insurance plan to see if your plan provides coverage for a portion of the procedure. We’ll assist you with the entire process, making it as easy as possible to pay for your implants.
Does insurance cover dental implants?
Certain dental insurance plans do reimburse portions of the dental implant procedure, but unfortunately, it is rare to receive significant coverage. Most insurance providers consider dental implants a “cosmetic procedure.” However, we will provide you with information so you can maximize your insurance for reimbursement. Coverage amounts depend on the insurance provider, plan coverage details, and plan annual limit. Private dental insurance plans may cover certain aspects of your procedure such as anesthesia, tooth removal, and bone grafting.
There are a few cases where medical insurance is available for people who are missing all of their teeth, and as a result, have medical complications. Typically, medical insurance will cover dental implant and tooth replacement procedures related to the following types of conditions:
- Trauma, say you lose your front teeth after a car accident
- Loss of teeth due to a medical condition
- If teeth are lost in the course of tumor treatment
- A congenitally missing tooth
This type of coverage depends solely on the individual policy. Other than these situations, medical coverage is very rare.
Does Medicare/Medicaid cover dental implants?
Medicaid and Medicare do not cover dental implants at all. State/county insurances (such as BadgerCare and CountyCare) also do not cover dental implants. For more information on these options, visit our friends at Medicare Consumer Guide.

Is it safe to get cheap dental implants outside of the U.S.?
Dental tourism can be an affordable way to receive treatment that would otherwise be out of budget, but a limited budget is all the more reason not to gamble with your health and savings. EON Clinics doctors continually are fixing teeth that were poorly placed elsewhere at a cheap price. Oftentimes, we see patients spending even more to fix the smile they initially thought would save them money. As such, we highly advise against dental tourism.
