Dental implants are surgically implanted into the bones of the jaw to take the place of natural teeth. They are fused to this bone so that they cannot come out. This needs to be performed by a dental professional. Dental implants are not cheap. The cost for a single implant can range between $3,000 and $4,500 based on the condition of the mouth and the charge of the dental professional. This includes the cost of surgery and everything the dentist needs to ensure the implants are placed into the jaw correctly. Dental insurance may not cover the cost of the implants but they may help to pay for some of the implant crowns. Dental implants are still a popular choice because they are up to 98 percent successful. If a person has dental implant they will be able to have their natural teeth replaced and the implants will last for a long time with basic care.
