How Much Would Total Teeth Replacement Cost?

If your child has lost many or all of his or her adult teeth, there are two ways to totally replace them: dentures and dental implants.

To find out how much a total teeth replacement would cost, we’ll break down the cost of treatment and compare it to the cost of dentures. Call your local Kool Smiles dentist for more information.

How Much Would Total Teeth Replacement Cost?

Dental implants can be expensive—though the cost of implants vary based on location and dental provider, a single tooth averages about $2,500. With each tooth, patients often need an abutment (which connects the implant to the crown) and crown, bringing the total cost to about $4,000 for a single tooth.

The cost of total teeth replacement for a child depends on the condition of his or her gums and jawbone. The average cost is about $34,000, but could range from $25,000 up to $95,000.

At Kool Smiles, we make total teeth replacement more affordable than you may think.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

One reason a total teeth replacement is so expensive is because of its complex installation process. Using a screw that is inserted into the jaw, a new “root” is formed and the dental implant is placed on top to replace the original tooth. This process can take time and often requires more than one visit to the dentist.

Are Dental Implants Right for My Child?

When deciding if total teeth replacement is right for your child, the cost of dental implants is only one factor.

Consult with your child’s dentist to find out if your child is healthy enough for dental implants. If your kid is healthy enough for regular surgery, he or she is typically healthy enough for a total tooth replacement. However, your child’s jaw must be strong and developed enough to support the new root.
