The Cost of Tooth Implants in Canada 

Today’s affordable rates offered by Canadian dental professionals have allowed clients to achieve a picture-perfect smile much more easily. In addition, today’s tooth implants have a high rate of success and often provide long-term benefits.

Tooth Implant Candidates and Healing Time

Tooth implants are perfect for those who are missing teeth, or those who have cracks or chips, and want to achieve a natural looking smile.

Procedures can take anywhere from fifteen minutes to two hours. Most treatments are performed under local anesthesia. Intravenous sedation is an option for complex procedures and nervous patients.

The initial healing process takes approximately four to six weeks for dental implants, and twelve weeks to be fully integrated into the jaw.

Benefits of Tooth Implants

Apart from having a beautiful smile, tooth implants have many benefits including:

  • Improved biting pressure
  • Comfortable and sturdy, compared to other options
  • Preserves the health of surrounding teeth
  • Easy to care for
  • Restore facial aesthetics
  • Aid in the ability to speak and chew
  • Prevent jawbone deterioration
  • Long lasting (20 years or more)

Tooth Implant Parts

A typical implant often consists of three main parts. These include the titanium implant post (secured into the jaw), the abutment (the connecting structure that holds the crown securely to the implanted post), and the crown itself.

Types of Tooth Implants

Here are the different types of tooth implants:

  • Endosteal Implants – Endosteal implants are the most common type of implants which require a healthy jaw. These are placed directly into the jawbone itself. Endosteal implants consist of three main parts: the implant, abutment, and the crown.

 

  • Subperiosteal Implants – In contrast, subperiosteal implants rest on top of the jawbone, under the gum. These are perfect for patients who do not have a healthy jawbone and cannot support a replacement tooth. Subperiosteal implants consist of a cage-like metal structure that is positioned over the jawbone. False teeth or crowns are attached to this metal structure through little rods that extend through the gums.

 

  • Zygomatic Implants – Zygomatic implants are placed into the cheek. These are ideal for patients with the most severe type of bone loss in the upper jaw. They are considered an alternative to bone grafting.

 

  • All-On-4 Implants – These implants replace all 14 teeth on an arch with four dental implants. These specialized implants require precise positioning and angling. These are permanent and cannot be removed by the patient.

The Cost of Tooth Implants

The cost of tooth implants in Canada varies and is often influenced by the type of procedure needed, your oral health, and the location of the dental practice. For example, dental practices in smaller cities and towns and outlying areas and suburbs, often cost much less than the downtown core of major cities.

In addition, the number and type of implants required, locations of implants, and additional procedures will influence the cost as well.

In Canada, the average tooth implant cost is approximately $1,600 CAD. Fairly simple procedures involving only a single implant (including all components) for patients with good oral health can range anywhere from $1,100 CAD to $3,500 CAD.

Variations to traditional implants such as the mini implant cost about $2,000 CAD and double implant costs are approximately $3,000 CAD and up.

The difference between traditional implants and mini implants is that traditional implants often last a lifetime, while mini ones last about 10 years. Other associated dental procedures including x-rays, tooth extraction, gum and bone grafts, and sedation can effect overall costs.

All-On-4 implants are approximately $25,000 CAD, porcelain veneers are $1,700 CAD and upper and lower acrylic implants are $1,800 CAD.

For complex procedures and for patients with poor oral health, total implant procedure costs can increase to over $90,000 CAD.

Choosing a Tooth Implant Dental Practitioner

Choosing a tooth implant dental practitioner is now easier than ever. Some suggestions include browsing websites and checking review sites, such as the Better Business Bureau (BBB), and reading promotional brochures.

In addition, word-of-mouth referrals from friends, family, and neighbours are often a great source of information.

Many dentists also offer free consultations, so do not hesitate to speak with a few dentists. Various tooth implant practitioners can be found all over Canada, and at increasingly affordable rates.
