Cost Ranges for Dental Implants: $4,000 to $20,000+
There is no way any professional dental clinic can give you an exact quote over the phone or email. How do you know how complicated your particular situation is? At the very least, you need a proper exam and x-rays and a consultation to over your options with the dentist.
Are Dental Implants Covered by insurance?
Unfortunately, dental implants are almost never covered by insurance plans in Canada because they regard them as cosmetic treatment. However, the crown portion of the implant may be covered by your insurance plan if you have crown coverage (depending on how many you are doing). This is good news because the top part of the implant is about half the total price, thus giving you a nice discount on the overall cost.
There are circumstances where you could be covered such as an emergency situation. We can certainly help you discover what your coverage is with a complimentary benefits check.

Factors that affect the Cost of Dental Implants
Some patient ask, “Why the high upfront cost?” There are several reasons listed below.
Dental Implant Material
Only the top, most high-tech materials go into making your dental implants. The root of the implant is made with Titanium and it is designed for maximum acceptance into your jaw bone and gum tissue. This process is called osseointegration (absorption into your jaw) and is the reason it takes a few months to heal before the crown can be put on. Allergies or sensitivities to Titanium would result in a necessary change of materials which affects the cost. https://www.peeldentist.com/posts/what-are-the-3-types-of-dental-implants
Implant Dental Surgery Labour
Part of the implant cost is the time the dentist and their staff spend along with other materials cost to make sure you are comfortable during the treatment and enjoy decades with a natural looking and durable implant.
If we are pulling out a tooth that is broken or decayed, then that is part of the overall implant cost as well.
The healing cap is placed on the implant screw during the healing process and before the crown is put on. This is mandatory but is part of the overall cost.
Number of Dental Implants
The biggest factor affecting your cost is how many implants are you getting. The cost approximately depends on the number of implants multiplied by the cost of one implant.
The clock is always against you when you have missing teeth. Over a year with a gap can cause bone loss in your jaw. During the consultation and exam, the dentist has to determine your bone density to see if it can support an implant. The longer you wait, the more the gums and jaw in the area is recessed and makes it harder to place the implant.
For patients that lack the necessary bone density, bone grafts may be needed and that affects the cost.
