Dental Implants

Wondering if someone on here has received implants before and have a rough cost for 1 dental implant. I know it's to each their own but just need a rough estimate.

I'm in the early stages of having one done. I haven't received the official quote yet because I need to have a scan to determine if there is enough bone for the implant. I'm having that done next week. From what I hear from others, expect to pay around $2K+. My benefits at work will cover 50% of the cost up to $2K.

Just at my dentist Monday morning and he said about $2500-3000 for 1 implant. Pricing can vary with the spacing between existing teeth, and enough bone as previously mentioned. Dentist said my situation was an ideal so I guess my price would be on the low end.

Is the the price you listed for the prep and placement of the implant? I'm told it multiple visits for the whole procedure.

From what I understand, you have to place the metal post first and let gums heal. The replacement tooth has to be made then attached to post at a later date.

Apparently the entire process is about 4 - 6 months and multiple visits. I can't wait until mine is done. I look like a dork when I smile.

Check with Boxgrove Dental in Markham ... I go there and they are very very reasonable pricewise.

I just recently had a tooth implant done for one of my canine tooth. $4000 for the implant (which included sedation and donor bone) and $1300 for the crown. I was amazed at how painless and smooth it all went

Wow over $5k for the tooth. I often wonder if there’s insurance that will cover any of this....

Yes - huge sticker shock specially when medical insurance only covered 80% of the crown cost. However, while this surgeon cost a lot, he had great qualifications compared to the more "cheaper" cosmetic dentists that I visited. (Own practice with 1-2month wait time - so we know he's busy, emergency surgeon for 3 local hospitals, and teaching at UBC) This gave me the confidence to go with him despite the cost. The smooth process and painless experience totally back it up

Could you tell me the name of the specialist you saw. I'm researching oral surgeons right now for an extraction and implant for a molar. I would expect to pay $5k plus especially as I will need a bone graft

I have come across Dr Haddad from Toronto Dental Specialist who has very good reviews but would be interested in any positive experiences others have had from other dentists.
cheers

I had one done last year. It's a lengthy process. In my case:
1) Tooth Extraction
2) Wait a few months to heal
3) Grafting (insertion of bone)
4) Wait a few months to heal
5) Insertion of metal post (basically drill a hold and insert a screw)
6) Wait a few months to heal
7) Crown

Total was just over $3,000.

Note: I was able to claim part of the crown through my insurance (approx. $1,000).

This is good to hear. The pain is what I'm fearing. My quoted cost for tooth extraction and new implant was $5,000. Also a canine tooth for me. I'm not looking forward to this.
