Dental implants are easily the most popular and also the ideal solution, for replacing your missing tooth/teeth. They have definitely changed the course of dentistry in the last quarter of a century or so. A dental implant is basically a titanium post which is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gum line to work as a tooth root. After that, an implantologist will attach a crown on top to ensure the appearance of a natural tooth.
A single-tooth dental implant cost between $1,000 and $3,000. The abutment and crown add between $500 and $3,000. So, the total dental implant cost per tooth is between $1,500 and $6,000. This is the average out-of-pocket price without the help of dental insurance or dental plans.
Dental implants are designed to last a long time — upwards of 25 years — and are a long-term, permanent teeth replacement solution. Implant alternatives typically last between 5 to 15 years before needing to be replaced.
