Generally, implants can cost $2,500 to $5,000 US, or more, depending on the difficulty of the patient.

Implants are very successful if you have enough jawbone to anchor the implant. People with extensive tooth decay lose a lot of bone over time.

It depends on where you go and where you live. My cousin lives in NYC where it’s about 7k per post (not per tooth, as multiple teeth may require less posts than teeth). Where I live, maybe 5k. Still an expensive area of the country, but not as much as NYC. Maybe less in other areas of the country where things aren’t so expensive. Also, if you go to a clinic it may be cheaper than the prices I quoted.

The person who puts the post in will probably not be the same one who makes the crown.

The prices I quoted are for the two separate procedures – the implanting of the post and the dentist who makes the crown. Each procedure is equally important.

If the crown is not fitted properly, it’s going to get a lot of friction from the other teeth and it’s going to cause undue stress on the post.
