Dental Implant Costs
As with any surgery or procedure, cost is always a concern. For single missing teeth, all you need is an implant. To replace an arch of several missing teeth, All-on-4’s implant dentures work best while costing less long term, and compared to traditional methods like fixed bridgework, All on 4 implant dentures can last up to 20 years, if not longer.
For a single tooth, the placement of the implant can cost between $275 to $450, depending on how much customization is required. The crown is the most the costly part, ranging from $1,000 to $3,000. Here the cost range is dependent on the number of teeth you need replaced and the state of your gums.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are considered the most effective and permanent solution for replacing missing teeth and are associated with many benefits including their natural look and their ease of care. Other tooth replacement options like removable dentures do not offer these benefits and may not be the solution for every patient.
Implants consist of three parts, a titanium implant post, an abutment, and a crown. The titanium post is placed directly into the jaw bone where it then becomes integrated into the bone itself, becoming permanent. This integration, called osseointegration, can take between 4 months and up to six months.
At Georgian Dental, we have been using an innovative photo laser procedure that reduces inflammation at the surgical site and improves the efficiency of bone generating cells called osteoblasts. This procedure can help reduce the osseointegration time by 30%! This means our patients get more reliable and faster results ahead of everyone else.
The Type of Implants
There are three main types of implants to choose from depending on your individual needs, these include:
Endosteal – The most common implant type. Suitable for most patients, require healthy jawbone.
Subperiosteal – These implants are not fused to the jawbone, resting on top, under the gum.
Zygomatic – Placed in the cheekbone (the bone below the eye), rather than the jawbone.
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, there are many options. Fortunately, with today’s advanced dental technology, patients have the option of choosing All-On-4 implants. This new implant option offers the same quality and functionality that you would expect from natural teeth, enjoy all your favorite foods without worry.

The Number of Implants
Patients who require a larger number of implants can expect to pay a higher tooth implant cost. This is because more time and materials are needed to complete the procedure. Our dentists spend a lot of time plotting the exact location of each implant using computer guided 3D modelling to ensure that there are no complications. When additional implants are required, more time is needed to plot the specific location of each one.
If Gum Disease is Present
Healthy bone and tissue are vital to the success of your dental implant procedure. If there is any evidence of gum disease, we will need to treat this condition before moving forward. Any gum disease treatment could affect your overall tooth implant cost. One of the most important consideration with implants is the health of the seal between the implant and your gums.
If Bone Loss Has Occurred
High bone density is necessary to hold your implants in place. If you have experienced significant bone loss for any reason, our dentists will most likely need to perform a bone graft. You can expect this to impact your overall tooth implant cost.
If Tooth Extractions are Necessary
Tooth extractions are necessary when a tooth has been injured or decayed beyond repair. In most cases, dental implants are used to replace these teeth. The cost of a tooth extraction can often increase the overall tooth implant cost. Dental implants are the preferred method of replacing missing teeth.
