Dental Implants Cost: How Much are Mini Dental Implants?

Once your dentist determines your candidacy for implants your next question may very well be, 'how much do dental implants cost?'

As with most dental restorations, there are a variety of factors at play in determining the cost of implants. Whereas a patient's edentulous condition and said patient's overall oral health play an important role in implant cost evaluation, they are but pieces in the overall implant price puzzle.

Some of the more common factors affecting the cost of dental implants include:

  • The type of implantation (traditional implants are more expensive than mini implants)
  • The dentists(s) involved in treatment (General dentist, oral surgeon, periodontist, prosthodontist, etc.)
  • The location treatment is performed
  • Implant and dental materials used
  • Dental insurance coverage

Generally speaking, a dental implant is one of the more expensive restorations available. On average, a single dental implant can cost as much as $5,000 or as little as $1,000. Full mouth reconstruction performed using dental implants – which essentially means a mouth full of implants – can cost as much as $100,000, though the low-end is significantly less at approximately $24,000.

If your tooth implant procedure is not covered by dental insurance, or if you don't have an insurance policy, you may be a candidate for treatment financing through your dentist or a third-party financing company such as Capital One or CareCredit. There also are charitable organizations available that help children or underserved populations gain access to necessary dental health care.

Mini Dental Implants Cost

Mini dental implants are a narrower implant solution for small spaces between teeth and incisors not previously treatable with traditional implantation strategies. As the name suggests, the mini implant solution is a smaller option that is approximately half the size of their traditional alternatives. As such, the cost of mini dental im plants is less than that of traditional implants. New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Beverly Hills dental implants costs tend to be more expensive than the cost of treatment in smaller cities.
