Dental implants are the highest quality tooth replacement option available in dentistry. A dental implant replaces both the tooth and the root, giving you a natural look and function. As you may imagine, with quality comes a cost. The average cost of a dental implant is $2,500. This price just includes the implant root. A dental implant complete with a crown could cost as much as $5,000.
If you need to replace all of your teeth, you’re probably thinking that dental implants are out of your price range. To pay $5,000 a piece for 14 teeth in the upper jaw and 14 in the lower jaw would really add up. The good news is that it only takes a few dental implants to replace an entire arch of teeth, reducing the cost to a reasonable amount.
How much does it cost to get a full mouth of dental implants in Rockville, MD? Here’s what you can expect.
Implant Supported Dentures
One option for replacing a complete arch of teeth is implant supported dentures. Using anywhere from 2 to 4 implants, a set of dentures can be made that snap onto the implants. They are typically removable for cleaning. The implants provide a solid anchor system to keep the dentures securely in place.
The cost of implant supported dentures ranges widely from around $5,000 to as much as $25,000. It all depends on the number of implants and the quality of the materials the dentures are made of.
Another option for complete arch teeth replacement is a procedure called All-on-6 or All-on -4. In this case 4 to 6 dental implants are placed in the jaw to support a single arch of fixed teeth. All-on-6/4 fixed bridge are typically non removable, meaning your dentist attaches them to the implants and only your dentist can remove them. One major advantage of All-on-6/4 hybrid bridges is that you can get the implants and teeth placed in one appointment.
The cost of All-on-6/4 fixed bridges ranges from around $55,000-65,000. The actual cost depends on a variety of factors, including the material used to fabricate the fixed bridges.
Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures and All-on-6/4
Both implant supported dentures and All-on-6/4 fixed bridges have significant benefits, such as:
- Stability. With implants as anchors the dentures don’t slip out of place when eating and talking the way traditional dentures can. You can avoid using messy denture adhesives to keep your dentures in place.
- Bone health. Dental implants fortify the jaw bone rather than allowing it to weaken and deteriorate the way traditional dentures do. You can preserve the current shape of your face and avoid the sunken jaw appearance that eventually results from dentures.
- Cost effective. Replacing all of your teeth with just a few dental implants and dentures costs less than what a full mouth of implants would cost.
