Dental Implants Cost

Dental implants replace tooth roots and prevent jaw atrophy, but you may be concerned about the cost.

On average, a dental implant costs $3,000-$4,500, but our office has financing solutions that can make the cost manageable for your budget.

Doctors across Memphis send patients to Southern Dental Implant Center in Cordova, TN, for implant surgery because of our excellent care.

The Average Cost of Dental Implants IN THE UNITED STATES


According to the American Dental Association, the average cost of a dental implant to replace a single tooth in the United States is $3,000-$4,500. A complete set of implants is $20,000-$45,000.

Factors That Affect Cost

Because the dental implant procedure is tailored to the individual, the total treatment cost varies from patient to patient. Various factors can affect the cost, including:

Number of Implants

The cost of your implant surgery will largely depend on the number of implants you receive. Dental implants create a foundation that can support one, several, or an entire dental arch of false teeth, but you may require more implants depending on the restoration you need. 

Preparatory Procedures

Your jaw must have enough bone density to support your implants. If you need bone grafting, a sinus lift, or another preparatory procedure before your implant surgery, this will increase the total cost of your treatment. 

Type of Restoration

The type of tooth restoration you receive will also have a significant effect on your total cost of dental treatment. An implant-supported denture, for example, will be more costly than an individual crown.

Materials Used

Both implants and restorations can be made from a variety of high-quality materials, which will affect your overall cost of treatment. We offer implants made of zirconia and restorations made of porcelain, zirconia, empress, and IPS e.max®. Our team will help you weigh your options to find a material that fits comfortably into your budget.

Paying for Dental Implants Financing Is Available

Dental insurance plans won't contribute to dental implant costs, but our Cordova, TN, office understands how important this treatment can be. Our office serving Memphis and beyond offers financing through CareCredit® so patients can pay for this dental solution in affordable monthly installments.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants from our practice serving patients throughout Memphis offer many benefits that make them worth the price, such as:

Provide Stability

With dental implants, your prostheses will feel exceptionally secure, so you can eat, speak, and laugh without worrying about your artificial teeth slipping out, a problem that can occur with restorations like traditional dentures. 

Permanent Solution

When cared for properly, your zirconia dental implant can last a lifetime, so you won't have to worry about replacement costs unless a problem occurs; however, you will have to replace your crown, bridge, or denture eventually.

Restore Your Bite

A missing tooth or teeth can leave patients with an uneven bite. This can make eating difficult and lead to painful oral health problems, like a TMJ disorder. Implant-supported restorations improve your bite to prevent these problems.

Improve Your Appearance

Dental implants can do wonders for your oral health and improve your appearance. Maintaining a healthy jaw can guard against the sunken lips and cheeks that can occur as a result of tooth and bone loss. 

Preserve Your Jawbone

When natural teeth fall out or are extracted, the surrounding bone atrophies because of a lack of stimulation. Dental implants act as tooth roots to stimulate the jaw, maintaining its density and strength.

I am so pleased with my implants. Dr. Collier is excellent and has great bedside manner. His staff and his assistants are awesome. He wanted everything to be perfect even if that meant having an extra visit. I was very impressed with his credentials when I was doing my research for an implant specialist and I’m glad that I chose Southern Dental Implant Center.
