Tooth Implant Cost : How much does a tooth implant cost approximately?

A tooth implant cost< will vary quite a bit depending on where you live, the experience of the dentist, the amount of work needed for you teeth, the importance of the particular tooth and so on.

For example in Texas the tooth implant cost is usullay between $1800.00 - 2500.00 and the crown that goes on top of the tooth implant with an abutment kit is about $1200.00 - $2800.00. It really depends on where you live even in Texas. In Dallas, Houston the dental implant cost would be higher whereas in the smaller towns it would be much less expensive. So the total would run you $3000.00 - $5300.00.

In Boston the tooth implant cost would be around $3000 which includes the cost of the implant and the crown.

On the East coast of the US the abutment and crown will cost anywhere between $1,200-$1,800 and the tooth implant itself will cost anywhere between $1,200 - $2000 per tooth.

On average it tooth implant cost is $1,500-2,500 USD per tooth without the additional crown. But, depending on your teeth additional costs for things such as a posterior mandible or bone regeneration, sinus elevation, and wide diameter or narrow diameter implants can quickly escalate the costs involved to as much as $15,000 to $30,000 for the complete procedure for the upper or lower jaw.

It really does depend on the tooth. A front tooth or an inportant tooth like a molar will be much more costly than a tooth that is not that "important".

In Mexico, East Eurpoean countries and India the tooth implant cost is much cheaper than what you will pay in the US. The tooth implant cost can be less than half of what it costs in the US.

In the UK a single tooth implant cost will be around £2000. Tooth implants will involves several trips to the dentist over a year or so. They have to screw metal screws into your bone and the gums have to heal before the implant can be fitted.

Make sure your dentists has the required tooth implant experience. Many dentists are doing a years course and then claiming they are qualified dental implant specialists. It takes years of study and practical experience to develop the skills necessary to perform the dental implant procedures correctly. Even then , there is still the chance that the tooth implant may fail if your implant does not integrate into your bone structure, And you will likely not getback back the £2000. It is a risk you take going ahead with the procedure.

In the UK in the NHS you can get tooth implant only if you go to a teaching hospital and there is always a long waiting list for dental implants. A crown on NHS is £189.00 but most dentist only do it privately about £400.00. A tooth implant cost will be about £1500.00-£2000.
