The cost of dental implants varies. For example for the two teeth right next to the front teeth the cost of tooth implants worked out to $6,000. This included the cost of dental implants and the crown. Tooth implant prices vary any where from $2000 to $4500 – for a single restored tooth supported by a tooth implant. But the price can increase significantly in cases where additional procedures are needed (bone graft or sinus lift)
It is worth going for a consultation because each case is different depending on the tooth that is missing. Your dentist will determine whether you have enough bone to support the implant post. Some people will need gum grafts, treatment for infections etc. It is better to get the implant done as soon as possible after losing the tooth to limit bone loss in your jaw where the implant will be placed .
The bone grafts are usually covered by dental insurance. So, the cost of dental implants comes down. Most dental insurance do not cover teeth implants but they do pay some money based on if you would have had a bridge instead. You can check with your dental insurance company about this.
Why do people need Teeth implants?
The cost of dental implants is high but still people go for implants. People need implants to help replace missing tooth which could be a result of illness, bad genetics, or accident. This helps restore the functionality of the missing tooth. Also, it helps restore the smile particularly if the missing tooth happens to be front tooth.

The first couple days to a week after your tooth implant surgery will be a little rough with rest to pain. You need to be extra careful to protect your implant from impact. Avoid eating hard substances until the implants heal completely. If you don’t take sufficient precautions you costly teeth implants can fail and that can be a major blow.
Complications And Cost Of Dental Implants:
Implants can fail due to various reasons. To minimize failure choose a dentist with loads of experience and good training. Otherwise the cost of dental implants will be nothing compared to the cost you will pay for correcting the problems.
A patient who went to a dentist who offered the lowest prices in terms of teeth implants cost got her jaw broken in 7 different places. The result her perfectly healthy tooth did not have any support and most of her upper teeth just fell off. Instead of one tooth implant that she went for she had to have 8 implants at another dentist not to speak of the added cost, pain, trauma and loss of taste in her mouth. At the age of 27 she has mouth of artificial teeth. This is an extreme example but it can happen if you go after lowest price and not verify other aspects.
