The Cost of All-on-4 Dental Implants

All-on-4 Dental Implants

Dental implants have become a common way to replace damaged, decayed, or missing teeth. They’re much more convenient than dentures; the only downside is the cost. But it’s hard to put a price on a smile. When it comes down to cost, what you may spend to get all-on-4 dental implants varies based on a range of factors.

What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?

The all-on-4 approach has been around for at least a couple of decades. It involves inserting four dental implants, or titanium posts, that fuse with the jawbone. These are placed at strategic points often at an angle to increase available bone and arch stability. A custom-made upper or lower dental bridge is fit permanently onto the posts. The implants and bridge can last for the rest of your life.

What Is the Cost of All-on-4 Dental Implants?

All-on-4 dental implants aren’t cheap. While replacing one tooth with a single implant can cost $3,000 or more, a full arch can range from $20,000 to $50,000. In general, it costs more for dental implants in populated areas. But location isn’t the only factor in the cost spread. 

Here’s a look at what can determine the price of all-on-4 dental implants:

  • The Rates a Dentist Charges: A dentist needs to turn a profit. It costs a great deal to run their practice, plus they’ve spent years earning a college degree and a board certification. However, some practitioners are more concerned about making a big profit than others.
  • Cost of Materials: High-quality parts and materials are needed to ensure your dental implants can last for many decades. For example, we use the highest quality titanium implants and zirconia tooth prostheses. Your dentist doesn’t have control over the cost of materials; they must factor it into the cost of treatment so their business remains profitable.
  • Different Stages of Treatment: OraBell offers a free 3D CT scan during your initial consultation. Some dentists charge for it directly. If you need a bone graft, gum treatment, or tooth extraction, it will add to the total cost of treatment. The titanium post and the process of implanting it, plus anesthesia, come at a price, as do the abutment and crown, bridge, or arch that replaces the missing tooth/teeth.

Does Insurance Cover the Cost of All-on-4 Dental Implants?

It depends on your insurance company and the policy. Dental implants are usually considered cosmetic, so the full procedure won’t be covered. Insurance is more likely to cover tooth extraction, root canals, and other services needed before receiving a dental implant. Therefore, it can significantly reduce the cost of the total treatment.

Are All-on-4 Dental Implants Worth It?

A permanent denture attached to four implants looks, feels, and functions like natural teeth. There’s no need to remove it or secure it with an adhesive. You brush and clean your new teeth just like you would any ordinary set of teeth. Plus, you can chew your food properly and eat anything you want, and no one will notice the difference no matter how big you smile.
