While there is no standard set fee, there are common fee ranges. Certified TeethXpress Providers most often charge between $15,000 and $27,000 to replace a full set of teeth with dental implants, per upper or lower.

Therefore, if you require treatment for both your upper and lower jaws, the cost of your procedure is more likely to range between $30,000 and $54,000.

Why choose full-mouth dental implants over a lower priced denture alternative?

At first glance, the cost of a full-mouth dental implant procedure — to replace a full set of upper and/or lower missing teeth — may seem expensive compared to traditional removeable dentures. But let’s compare the benefit through the lens of a few real-life scenarios. This should help you to at least appreciate the differences and help you make an informed decision.

Priceless benefits of full-mouth dental implants

Consideration of lower-priced traditional dentures

If you desire a set of teeth that are anchored in place, like natural teeth, you are better off choosing dental implants.

A traditional denture will rest on top of your gums (with no anchorage) and will become increasingly loose over time.

If you desire a set of teeth that will remain steady (while chewing) and allow you to eat virtually any type of food you enjoy — including steak, toasted bagels, nuts, raw fruits and vegetables — a dental implant procedure is a wise choice.

Since a traditional denture becomes increasingly unsteady over time, certain foods like steak, toasted bagels, nuts, raw fruits and vegetables can be impossible to chew with a denture.

If you desire a set of teeth that look and feel natural from the first day, the dental implant procedure is your best option.

Many denture-wearers complain that their denture teeth feel unnatural. Traditional dentures frequently require several follow-up dental visits before they become comfortable enough to wear.

If you desire a set of teeth that will preserve the natural shape of your jawbone and help prevent premature facial wrinkles from tooth loss, consider investing in a full-mouth dental implant procedure.

A traditional denture is proven to accelerate jawbone loss, which leads to facial wrinkles and can make you look older than you are.

Dental implant supported teeth remain anchored in your mouth at all times.

Traditional dentures should be removed overnight and placed in a denture cleaning solution.

When you can eat healthy foods, you can choose a healthy diet. When a healthy diet is sustained, it leads to a healthy body. Having a healthy body is a building block for a healthy mind and self-confidence in your smile.

High self-esteem can position you for priceless lifestyle benefits including a great social life, an improved love life and even that dream job that you’ve been wanting. These are just a few reasons why people consider the full-mouth dental implant procedure to be an investment in their health and the obvious choice.

How do people pay for full-mouth dental implant procedures?

Like most products and services that offer long-term value — such as a car, kitchen remodeling or plastic surgery — covering the cost of a full-mouth dental implant procedure usually requires extended payment terms.

Most people who opt for this procedure seek out affordable monthly terms to cover its cost over time. Usually, a monthly payment plan between $400 and $700 is considered affordable. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to establish such terms.

One of the most reliable way to establish a monthly payment plan for dental implant therapy is with a company called Proceed Finance®. Proceed Finance specializes in these types of dental healthcare loans.

Understandably, a higher credit score will land you a lower interest rate. Even if you have a less than perfect credit score, you can still take advantage of extended payment terms. Proceed Finance will extend your repayment terms for up to 10 years.

Establishing an affordable monthly payment plan allows the average individual to receive dental implants, today. This approach has made it easy for thousands of people to say “Yes!” to a new set of stable teeth and a beautiful smile.

Other commonly used methods for covering the cost of dental implant therapy include:

  • Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
  • Borrowing from a 401(k) or 403(b) retirement plan
  • Credit card
  • Inheritance
