Dental Implant Costs
The first question that we are usually asked regarding dental implants is, “How much does a dental implant cost?”
There are many variables that affect what your dental implant will cost. During your research, you may see a large range of prices advertised for dental implants. Basing your decision to proceed with an implant based solely on cost may not give you the outcome you want.
Think about any household purchase you make. Plastic shoes vs leather shoes, a silk blouse vs a polyester blouse, organic meat vs non-organic, Canadian made vs foreign made. The materials used, place of origin and the quality of the product impact the price.
Like household items, there are a large range of implants available, each with varying degrees of quality and usability. However, unlike household items, the long- term success of a dental implant is extremely dependent on the implant quality, the precision of the procedures, and the technology being used.
The questions you should be asking are:
- What kind of an implant am I getting?
- Where is the implant made?
- What is the reputation of the implant manufacturer? (Many of the cheaper implants are manufactured in countries like China with very questionable quality control measures)
- What research is there to support this type of implant?
- Are there long term studies showing the success rates of these implants? How much time will I need to be off work?
- Do I have to visit multiple locations for various parts of this procedure?
- How much pain or discomfort can I expect?
- Will I have to have stitches?
- What kind of temporary tooth will I be wearing (if necessary)?
Let us use the analogy that an implant supporting your new tooth is like a post supporting a building structure. Finding out how much a post costs will not tell you what the cost of the final structure is going to be. You will often find places that will quote you a low cost on the implant and then be surprised to find that the other costs of components have not been included thereby causing the final cost to you (e.g. implant, abutment and crown) to be more than you expect. You have to make sure that you are comparing "apples with apples" and are well educated about the final cost of the solution that you are seeking.
You should try to find out as much as possible about the cost of the finished solution, not just about the cost of one component of that solution.
You need to know what the finished structure is going to cost you and what the pros and cons of each solution are that may be an option for you.
In the rapidly progressing world of modern dentistry, we have better and more advanced solutions available every day. It would be a good idea to make sure that you are getting all viable options given to you so that you can make the decision that is best for you.
Additional costs that you may not think of, include the cost of your time and downtime.
- How much time do you have to take off work?
- How many visits do you need to have the procedure completed?
- How long will it take to recover from the procedure?
Older and more invasive procedures can cost you more pain and discomfort and more time away from work and social activities.
New or less invasive procedures may appear to cost you a little bit more, but they save you a lot of discomfort and downtime.
Computer guided implants are the future of implantology. More precise and less invasive, this procedure greatly reduces or eliminates discomfort, swelling and bruising and it is available to you today!

At the Compleo Dental Implant Treatment Centre, we work hard to help our local patients in Toronto, Markham, Richmond Hill and Vaughan, as well as our out-of-town patients who fly in from other parts of Canada and the world, to reduce dental implant costs. We realize that the cost of dental implants can be out of the reach of many people, however through our systems-based approach, and our creativity, we are able to make dental implants more affordable.
REDUCING DENTAL IMPLANT COSTS WHILE INCREASING LONG TERM SUCCESS RATES
How do we reduce dental implant costs? We reduce costs through the dental implant solutions that we develop. And using our systems-based approach, we have developed dental implant solutions for practically every type of dental condition that exists. Once implants are integrated, they should last a lifetime, as long as you are maintaining your periodontal health. This means brushing and flossing and seeing your hygienist on a regular basis. There is no advantage to purchasing a cheaper dental implant if it causes you pain or needs to be replaced within a short time frame.
PAYING FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS
Costs can be offset partially through insurance, as many Dental Insurance Plans offer partial dental implant coverage. Dental Implants are also considered a medical expense, and can be used to offset your net income on your income tax return. Depending on your income tax bracket, you can save up to 40% of the cost of your dental implants and related dental procedures. Dollar amounts of up to $30,000 can be financed through third-party financing programs.
