How much do dental implants cost?


Dental tourism in Vietnam is becoming more and more popular as the dental implants cost here is much cheaper than in other countries. For most people, dental implants are the best option for replacing damaged or missing teeth. However, there are many hidden costs that you may not be aware of. Let’s find out the answer in the article below.

Why are dental implants a worthy investment?

In general, dental implants cost can seem extremely expensive, especially when compared to other methods of replacing teeth: dentures and dental bridges. However, dentures and bridges, two alternatives, typically must be repaired or replaced every 5 to 10 years. 

Dental bridge and dentures
  • Dental bridges – Your existing healthy teeth will need to be shaved off to fit a bridge. With this measure, you cannot perform when more than two adjacent teeth are missing. Moreover, bridges are difficult to clean the interstitial spaces around each tooth.
  • Dentures – For the fitting of a set of dentures, it will take some time for you to get used to it when speaking and eating. Besides, they need special care and timely replacement when there are signs of old, or worn out. In addition, improperly installed dentures can lead to gum infections.

The initial cost of implants is higher, but the cost of maintaining bridges and dentures as well as fixing new problems they could cause can quickly outweigh the cost of switching to a simple implant, which can last a lifetime (provided you take care of them properly).

When teeth are damaged or missing, your jawbone will gradually degrade resulting in your face look older. Furthermore, the remaining teeth will also begin to loosen when the jawbone that holds the root of the tooth is damaged. Therefore, we encourage you to treat dental implants as an investment, not an expense.

The single dental implant cost in general

First of all, you need to know your teeth, every case of dental implant has a completely different cost because the condition of each person’s teeth is not the same.

Single dental implants cost

In general, however, single dental implants cost between $1,500 and $6,000 per implant. The cost of a dental implant depends on the materials used, the type of implant, and the clinic location rather than on the implant procedure. 

Moreover, this cost also depends on the location of the tooth to be implanted. Usually, the cost of front teeth implants is usually a little higher than that of the back of the mouth implants.

The multiple dental implants cost in general

In case you need to replace multiple teeth and those teeth are next to each other, you can opt for multiple tooth implants and therefore the cost of treatment also increases. Multi-teeth implants can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $30,000. This cost can be up to $50,000 depending on the specific case.

Multiple dental implants cost

Multi-teeth implants are often applied in cases where the patient still has healthy teeth adjacent to the teeth that need to be replaced as well as healthy gums to ensure that the implant remains in place.

For example, if you need to fill the space of three or four adjacent teeth, you can use a bridge that is held in place with only two implants in the two outermost teeth to reduce the total dental implant cost. Because two implants can support three or four adjacent teeth, it is less expensive than four individual implants. It ranges from $6,000 to $10,000.

The full-mouth dental implants cost in general

There are many different approaches to full-mouth replacement, so the range of prices can be confusing. The most expensive type is the replacement of individual teeth, which allows the dentist to preserve some of the existing healthy teeth. Specifically, this type of option costs between $60,000 and $90,000.

In addition, a less expensive option is implant-supported dentures, with two full arches of dentures replacing natural teeth for the upper and lower jaws. The arch is anchored to four – six – eight implants on each side of the jaw, known as All-on-4, All-on-6, All-on-8. This cost typically ranges from $24,000 to $50,000 in the United States. However, you can find much lower prices if you are willing to travel abroad, which can be a safe and effective way to reduce the cost of a full mouth replacement.

Full mouth dental implants cost

Full mouth dental implants are sturdy and safe. Unlike traditional dentures, they do not require the use of adhesives. Dentists often recommend this type of implant solution when a patient has lost several teeth in a row.

Other dental implants cost in general

In the dental implant procedure, in addition to choosing the desired implant, you need the abutment and the crown. All of these items have separate prices.

The only additional cost you can make to reduce the overall cost is an over-the-counter medication. For example, pain medication or antibiotics after surgery if prescribed by your doctor.

Since dental implants require a long process of treatment until your teeth are completely stabilized, you will have to pay for the cost of treatment should problems arise.

Factors affecting the final dental implant cost:

  • Comprehensive dental examination, including 3D images (CT and X-ray) to determine the exact location to implant. It ranges from $350 to $515.
  • Extract teeth if necessary.
  • Sinus lift and dental bone graft keep the jawbone strong enough to hold the implant stable (if necessary).
  • Manufacturing crowns (Materials).
  • Location to be transplanted.
  • Location of the clinic, large urban areas tend to be more expensive.
  • Cost of office visits.
  • Take care before you start
  • Post-care

The dental implants cost abroad

Because of the high cost of private dental implants in the US, many people are looking for more affordable dental implants in other countries. In fact, you can save between 50% and 70% on the cost of implants and other dental treatments by combining overseas travel and dentistry, what is known as “dental tourism”.

For example, in Mexico or Costa Rica, you can get an implant for $1,000 or less. You can also turn your trip into a long vacation if you visit some Southeast Asian countries like Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines. Or visit one of the European countries known for high-quality dental work.

Usually, people have the mindset that lower dental implants cost means lower quality. But in fact, the countries mentioned above have famous dental systems and gradually become popular for dental tourism, dentists have invested a lot in modern and advanced equipment.

The below table shows the approximate single dental implants cost in countries that are popular alternatives to the US.

Country Approximate dental implants cost
Mexico $950
Brazil $1,000
Costa Rica $850
Thailand $1,500
Vietnam $900
Phillippines $1,250
Prices don’t include medical insurance, flights, or accommodation costs

Because the dental implant procedure usually takes place over a long period of several months. Instead of traveling many times to clinic locations, especially to countries that are far apart, significantly increases the dental implants cost as well as causes some inconvenience in the recovery process. You can completely stay in that country to experience tourism and convalescence during the treatment period.

How to determine the exact your dental implants cost?

As mentioned earlier, the total cost of a dental implant can vary greatly from case to case. Some will need a single implant while others may require multiple teeth or a full mouth. In addition, the dental condition of each patient will affect the type of implant and the cost of the implant.

The best way to find out your implant costs is to consult with your doctor in person. They will use 3D scans to determine bone density and to see if you can get an implant right away or need an additional bone graft/sinus lift before placing the implant. After the consultation, you will know exactly what needs to be done and what the total cost will be.
