In most cases you will only need to have one dental implant inserted to replace a missing or damaged tooth. Depending on the size of the implant required, and a few other factors like dentists reputation and complexity of the procedure for your specific situation will typically determine the cost you will have to pay.
Standard Sized Dental Implants
Most people looking at getting dental implants will get a traditional dental implant size. These can range anywhere from 3.5 mm to around 6 mm in diameter, depending on what part of the mouth it needs to be placed. Generally speaking, wider implants are used to replace missing molars while the smaller end of the spectrum are used to replace teeth in the front part of the mouth where the jawbone thickness is a bit smaller.
The cost for standard size dental implants may range from $700 to $2500
Mini Dental Implants (MDI)
The other size of dental implants available are smaller than the traditional size implants ranging from 2 mm to 3.5 mm diameter. These are known as mini dental implants and are used in specific situations such as when the patients bone density is not sufficient for standard sizes, when the jawbone thickness is too small, when there is not enough space between adjacent tooth roots or during a multiple implant placement to cut costs.
The cost of placing an MDI can range from $350 to $1400
