How Much Do Implant Supported Dentures Cost?

Dental implants absolutely excel in the replacement of missing sections of teeth, or your entire dentition through implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures are essentially complete sets of top and/or bottom teeth that are attached to the jaw via implants, which are essentially screws and posts that are inserted directly into your jaw. These implants eventually become part of your jaw and essentially act as an artificial tooth root, which makes the support structure for the dentures both comfortable and strong. There are many benefits of implant supported dentures over traditional dentures. These benefits include stability, ease of speaking and chewing, and the promotion of a healthy jaw tissue. Because surgery is involved with this solution, it generally does come with a higher price tag than traditional removable dentures.


The final price for implant supported dentures usually includes the amount you pay for the surgical part (insertion of the dental implant), the abutment, the dentures themselves, and any special care that you might need before, during, or after the procedure. Additionally, the need for any prep to your jawbone can add to the price as well, as it can be necessary to first provide bone tissue that has been lost due to inflammation or injury, through a process called bone grafting.


There are also different variants of supporting removable prostheses for four or six implants - the goal is even better function and often the possibility of getting rid of the annoying "palate" of the upper prosthesis. Sometimes such a removable prosthesis/prosthesis is more aesthetic than a bridge on implants, as it provides more freedom in the construction of the teeth.


Cost of implant-supported dentures


Because each case is different, it is difficult to say exactly what your implant-supported dentures will cost. We recommend getting a quote from your dentist after they have done an initial examination. Please also note that your dental office might be able to provide financing options. The prices for implantation listed will vary depending on the need for associated procedures such as:

* Initial consultation: The key during this part of the process is to communicate with your dentist. Do not be afraid to consult with several dentist so that you are sure of the chosen procedure and its associated costs.

* Three-dimensional X-ray image: This is an absolute must. Without it, the dentist does not have an accurate overview of where they can insert the implants. It will show how much tissue is available and how far or close sensitive structures such as nerves and blood vessels are. Operating without this examination is an unnecessary risk.

* Anesthesia: The procedure should not hurt at all thanks to modern injection anesthesia. There are also options for general anesthesia if necessary. General anesthesia is more expensive than local anesthesia and which one you and your dentist chooses will also affect the final cost.

* Jawbone preparation: If you do not have enough bone in your jaw to support implants, you will need a bone graft, which can $500-$3,000+ to your bill, depending on what you need.

* Implant number and material: the number of implants you need will affect your final costs. Generally, implants can cost $500-$1,000+ each, depending on the material used.

* Dentures: The quality of the denture material will affect its cost to you. Please note that the higher quality materials, while more expensive, will last longer and may save you money in the long term.

* Any necessary follow-up visits and care: This will also vary depending on your case.
