The Complexity of the Case
Each patient’s anatomy is unique. The type and number of implants necessary to secure a denture will affect the overall treatment cost. Generally speaking, six to eight implants are needed to support a single complete denture. In certain cases, the all-on-4 technique may be effectively used to provide similar denture stability while reducing the number of implant posts to four, saving both time and money.
Dental implant price trends suggest that the cost of dental implants to practitioners has been fairly stable for a number of years but is poised to experience additional growth from pent-up demand following the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, dental implant companies are using strategies such as providing implant surgeons complementary instrument kits with bulk orders of implants at no additional cost. This is used as a means to encourage them to use their products and perform the treatment.
