How Much Do Implant Supported Dentures Cost?
Cost of Implant-Supported Dentures
Numerous factors affect the total cost of implant supported dentures. These factors include: the quality of denture used, number of implants, the dentist selected for the procedure, preparatory procedures needed and the type of implants used.
The final price of treatment varies depending on the health of your existing teeth, jaw and gums. The cost is also dependent on the size and quality of the restoration you receive. A full denture will require more implant posts than a partial denture. In addition, the experience of your dentist and your location can impact how much your treatment costs.
A complete set of custom porcelain dentures can cost between $1,500 and $4,000. It is important to note that this estimate does not include any sedation, preparatory procedures or the implant placement.
Number of Implants Needed
The number of implants required to adequately support the denture(s) play a major role in the cost. Six to eight implants are usually needed to support a full denture. Some dentists are now offering a technique called “All-on-4” which only uses four implant posts to support a full denture. Partial dentures can be supported by fewer posts.
Implant Type Used
Traditional implants cost between $1,600 and $2,200 per implant. Mini dental implants cost $500 to $1,500 each. Traditional dental implants are wider than mini implants and offer the greatest amount of stability which is critical for larger restorations.
Unfortunately, some patients do not have sufficient bone density necessary to support a large implant. When a large implant is not an option, mini implants can often be used. While mini dental implants are less expensive up front, they do not provide the same level of support and often require future replacement.
Patients who have existing oral health issues such as tooth decay or gum disease, require treatment before they can proceed with dental implants. Additionally, patients who have poor jawbone density will require bone grafts in order to support the implant posts. These preparatory procedures are not typically included in the price estimate for implant-supported dentures and will increase the overall cost. Bone grafting procedures usually cost between $600 and $2,600.
The cost of your procedure can vary drastically depending on the quality. Lower-end dentures usually start at the $300 range. Inexpensive dentures don’t offer the same level of comfort, stability or aesthetics. The cost for higher-end dentures can be up to $5,000.
Choosing an Experienced Dentist
The dentist you select impacts the success, timeline and overall cost of the treatment. More experienced, reputable dentists cost more than those with less experience. When you receive an implant-supported denture, it is critical to have a well-trained dentist with a good reputation. Correctly placed implants are less likely to fail which can help avoid future costly replacements.
Financing and Insurance
Dental implants are rarely covered by most dental insurance companies. Patients are usually required to cover the cost on their own as it is often considered cosmetic. Fortunately, traditional dentures are often at least partially covered by insurance. Be sure to review your benefits prior to beginning treatment. There are a variety of third-party financing options and companies who can assist in managing the expenses.
Invest in Your Smile
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement solution that protect the health of you jawbone. For patients needing to replace most or all of their teeth, an implant-supported denture is an excellent option to fully restore your smile.
