Dental Implants Cost
Dental implants replace missing tooth roots in the jaw, support restorations, and prevent your jawbone from atrophying.
Though you may already be aware of the benefits of getting dental implants, you may have questions about dental implant costs.
Learn what factors affect the price of this popular tooth replacement option at Nordhus Dentistry in Wichita, KS.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
The industry average for dental implants in the United States is between $3,000 and $4,500 to replace one tooth. Crafting a full set of implant-supported teeth can cost between $20,000 and $45,000. However, there are a lot of variables to consider when calculating your total cost for implants, including the type of abutments and restorations used.
Ultimately the cost of implants depends on the kind of treatment required, the quality of care you receive, and whether you will need any preparatory procedures, such as bone grafting or tooth extraction.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Implants
Some costs associated with dental implants will be the same for each patient, such as consultation and surgical fees. However, several factors that are unique to each case can influence the total cost of an implant procedure. These factors include:
- Number of implants and abutments
- Type of implant restoration
- Materials used for the restoration
- Sedation dentistry options
- Preparatory bone grating
Final Restoration Costs
After your dental implant surgery at our Wichita office, there is a period of osseointegration, in which the implants fuse with the jawbone. Once this process is completed, our partnering dental lab will fabricate a custom permanent restoration that looks like your natural teeth. Depending on the number of missing teeth, we can use crowns, bridges, or a full-arch denture.
Because crowns, bridges, and dentures are constructed through different methods and are composed of different materials, the costs will also vary.
Paying for Your Dental Implants FINANCING OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE
Many dental insurance plans do not cover implants, and some plans only cover certain aspects of the procedure. However, because dental implants are a permanent solution that offer benefits such as comfort and peace of mind, most patients find them to be a worthwhile investment.
To assist our patients in managing the cost of dental implants whether they have dental insurance or not, our dental office in Wichita, KS, accepts CareCredit®. CareCredit provides flexible financing with minimal interest rates for dental and medical treatments, so you can pay for this life-changing procedure in affordable monthly installments.
"...In essence I obtained superior dental care beyond my expectations. Other dentists never considered saving my front teeth whereas Dr Nordhus artistically rebuilt them from scratch. My implants were relatively painless and I was made comfortable throughout my procedures. Even better, my entire mouth has been reconstructed at a fraction of the costs compared to other multiple consultations I obtained." Mark Kanger, 5-Star Reviews
