Can I Afford Dental Implants?
Hi! I’m Jennifer Haack, a treatment coordinator at EON Clinics. Many people who want dental implants worry about the cost. We treatment coordinators work to create a customized care plan that fits your needs, as well as find ways for you to finance your treatment
How much are dental implants?
Dental implant costs vary depending on the condition of your mouth and the type of work that needs to be done. That being said, here is the average cost of dental implants at an all-in-one center:
- Single Tooth Implants $174/month (avg.)
- One Jaw: Upper or Lower $346/month (avg.)
- Full Mouth All-On-4 $692/month (avg.)
It is certainly an investment, but you’ll reap the benefits every single day. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. EON Clinics also offers affordable payment plans with zero to low interest for those who qualify.
Why do dental implants cost so much?
At EON Clinics, the cost of dental implants is all-inclusive with no hidden fees. Your treatment cost covers a variety of expenses:
- Oral surgeon fees
- Prosthodontist fees
- Custom-fabricated temporary and permanent prostheses
- Material costs
- Anesthesia related costs
- Any included medications
- Post-surgical follow-up appointments
- 3-D CT scan imaging
You will live with the outcome of your smile transformation for the rest of your life, and you truly do get what you pay for. Our patients repeatedly say that they were grateful to choose the highest quality care and a lifetime solution. Their only regret? Not doing it sooner!
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.

What is the Dental Implants Process Like?
Hi, I’m Dr. Ahn, here to help explain the process of getting dental implants. I’ve performed this procedure for hundreds of EON patients! Let’s start by going over some of the biggest questions my patients ask about the process.
What are the benefits of an all-in-one clinic?
From start to finish, your dental implant procedure will be handled by one team of staff in one location. Many general dentists and clinics that offer dental implants do not have a lab onsite; this means they must rely on an outside prosthodontist and technicians. By offering everything in-house, EON Clinics is able to deliver your new smile faster, while maintaining the highest level of service and quality. At our clinic, you’ll find the oral surgeons who place the dental implants, prosthodontists who specialize in tooth replacement, the dental implant laboratory, and 3-D CT scanner all in one place.
How is the dental implant procedure performed?
Many patients are fearful of the process at first, but we assure you, it’s quick and relatively painless! You may stay awake during the procedure or opt to be put under general anesthesia, whichever is most comfortable for you. Your doctor will surgically insert a dental implant into your jawbone. Four implants are inserted to support a full arch of teeth. Meanwhile, your temporary teeth are crafted at our onsite lab. These temporary teeth are then attached to the implants with a connector.
You’ll leave the day of your surgery with a set of temporary teeth that look natural. Once your jaw has healed, we’ll replace your temporary teeth with a permanent bridge that looks, feels, and functions just like real teeth! This final appointment takes less than an hour and does not require surgery. At this point, you’ll be able to eat anything you’d like!
How long does a dental implant procedure take?
A single tooth implant can be placed in less than 30 minutes and multiple tooth implants can take up to an hour. A full jaw, also known as an All-on-4, could take 2-3 hours. We’ll cover all of the details with you prior to your appointment.
Procedure Timeline for Single and Multiple Implants:
From start to finish, the entire procedure for a single implant or multiple implants takes about 6 months. Most of that time is spent allowing the implant to fuse to the jaw bone. If bone grafting and/or extraction is needed, it may take an additional 4-6 months.
Procedure Timeline for All-on-4 Full Jaw:
From start to finish, the entire dental implant process for an All-on-4 full jaw takes about 8 months. Most of that time is spent allowing the implants to fuse to the jaw bone while wearing your temporary teeth. Like any surgery, your healing period may be shorter or longer based on individual healing factors.
Is dental implant surgery painful?
Our patients are often surprised by how quick and uneventful the procedure actually is. Your pain will very likely be minimal; most patients report pain at a level of 2 on a scale of 1 to 10. Pain tolerance varies by patient but our care team is here to assist and provide comfort with pain medication if needed. We’ll make sure you’re comfortable from start to finish.
Anatomy of a Dental Implant
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are permanently anchored to the jaw bone. They are the ideal replacement solution for missing or failing teeth due to their strength, longevity, and completely natural appearance and feel. There are three main parts of the dental implant:
This is the new replacement tooth. Your crown will be custom-made to seamlessly match your natural teeth in color, size, and shape.
The abutment will not be visible in your mouth, but functions as a connector piece that secures kyour new tooth to the titanium implant.
An implant is a screw-like post that creates a stable base for your new tooth. The implant is permanently attached to the jaw bone.
