There is a wide range of fees charged for dental implants, and it changes according to the region, type of practice, low fee advertisements, etc...

In the United States a range between $1500 to $2000 per implant is common, and you can find dentists that will charge less than that and also more than that.Specialists such as oral surgeons and periodontists usually are on the higher end of the scale.

You can look at this post on this site for additional comments posted previously:

Be aware of very low advertised prices.

Good luck!

I agree with Dr. Boudet. Be aware of advertised low fee's. Some dentists will advertise low fees for the implant and charge more for the crown and abutment. In general a dental implant with the crown and abutment should be slightly higher in fees to replacing a missing tooth with a 3 unit bridge.

I agree with both Doctors,  there is something to the saying that you get what you pay for.  To have an implant placed and restored properly should be at least in the cost range of a three unit bridge.  Remember the implant has to be placed and restored so that in can function properly, look esthetic and also not create excessive food impaction issues.  In other words it has to be cleansable and easy to maintain as well.  This is definitely not the time to go with the lowest bid you find , you should have a dentist or team with significant experience.

Good Luck,
