How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

At Periodontal Associates of Jackson, the average cost to replace one tooth with an implant is $2,200, and replacing an arch of teeth with an All-on-4® implant-supported denture is $12,000, much less than the industry average costs for these procedures.
Because implant dentistry treatments are highly specialized for each patient, prices can vary. Your implant doctor can determine a more accurate figure during a consultation at our Jackson, MS, office. The total cost of your implant treatment may be influenced by the following factors:
Dental Implants Cost Factors
Number of Implants
It takes a single dental implant, abutment, and implant-supported crown to replace one missing tooth. However, if you are missing an entire dental arch of natural teeth, it will take an implant-supported denture, six to eight implants, and the same number of abutments to restore your smile. While using a greater number of implants and larger restorations will increase the cost of your dental care, you can rest assured that you are making a long-term investment in the health and function of your smile regardless of how many teeth you are replacing.
Some patients can qualify for implants right away, while others require preparatory dental care. If you have been missing natural teeth for an extended period of time, you may have experienced some degree of jawbone deterioration. Dental implants anchor into the jawbone, so there must be sufficient jaw tissue present for maximum stability. We can perform a bone graft or sinus lift to restore lost jaw tissue at our Jackson, MS, practice. Preparatory dentistry will increase how much your dental implants cost, but it can make all the difference for a successful treatment.
Placing a dental implant is not especially painful. It typically takes nothing more than local anesthetic to complete the procedure. However, if you have dental anxiety, sensitivity, or difficulty sitting for long periods of time, sedation can make your experience comfortable and relaxing. Some patients who need to replace a full mouth of teeth with implants and dentures opt to receive sedation in order to help the procedure pass quicker. Choosing to receive sedation during your implant surgery will increase your total costs, but the peace of mind it can afford you is priceless.

I had a great experience with Dr. Parkes, and his staff. They made me feel like family. They were comforting, kind, caring and patient. They took time explaining the procedure and answering any questions that I had and gave a very good goodie bag. After my procedure they escorted me to my person that was driving me home and explained what needed to be done. They went above and beyond. I greatly appreciate them and would recommend them to anyone needing implants, have gum disease or and periodontal work.View on Google

Are Dental Implants Really Worth It?
In our opinion, absolutely. Dental implants do more than just restore your smile—they keep your jawbone healthy and can prevent a range of other dental issues.
Your tooth roots stimulate your jaw every time you bite down. When teeth are missing, the jaw begins to atrophy from lack of stimulation, which can cause your existing teeth to shift and your facial appearance to change. By replacing missing tooth roots with dental implants and missing teeth with implant-supported restorations, you can prevent jawbone atrophy and the issues that come with it, which are often more expensive to treat than receiving dental implants in the first place.

Frequently Asked Questions About the Cost of Dental Implants
Does dental insurance cover implants?
A dental implant itself is not covered under basic dental insurance plans. But when you choose to use an implant to replace a lost tooth, other parts of treatment do qualify for coverage under many plans. For example, if you are replacing one tooth with an implant-supported crown, your policy will probably contribute to the cost of the crown. It will probably also cover some of the preparatory treatments you need, such as gum disease treatment. Some plans may even contribute to bone grafting. Our staff will work directly with your insurance company to secure the best possible coverage.
Does a full implant-supported denture require paying for 32 implants—one for each missing tooth?
No! It's a common misconception that replacing teeth with implants requires one implant per missing tooth. However, it's important to understand that a denture on the upper or lower arch can be supported with as little as four implants. This is called the All-on-4 method, and it costs just $12,000 at our practice.
I've seen really cheap prices advertised for dental implants elsewhere. Why shouldn't I choose those providers?As with any other product or service, if you see a price that's too good to be true, it probably is. It's very possible that these "bargain" prices are made possible by hiring inexperienced dentists, using subpar hardware, and cutting other corners that could eventually cost you much more than simply choosing a reputable provider in the first place. Our practice doesn't just place implants and send you on your way. We take great care to provide results that give you maximum benefits, and can also provide ongoing care to make sure your smile remains healthy and comfortable for years to come.
