A Full Set of Dentures

There is no way to give an exact cost for a full set of implants or dentures without undergoing a consultation with the implant dentistry experts at National Dental. However, a full set of basic dentures usually costs about $600-$1000. This increases if you opt for partial, premium, mid-range or implant supported dentures.

The Cost of Dental Implants

Implants are considerably more expensive up front but make up for the extra cost in the long run. When implants are placed correctly and are cared for properly, they may not need to be replaced at all throughout your lifetime as a matter of fact, according to several studies dental implants have up to a 95% survival rate after 10 years. This means that the costs even out over time. The average cost of dental implants is:

  • $1000-$3000 for a single implant
  • $5000-$15,000 for two implants with a 3-4 tooth bridge
  • $3600-$29,000 dental bridge with 2-6 implants
