Question by ▐▀▀▀▀▀▌ ▌ Cyrus ▐ ▐▄▄▄▄▄▌: How much would it cost to get a FULL SET of dental implants?
How much would it cost me to get a full set (top and bottom) of dental implants. It doesn’t really matter the location New York or California. Would I get a break on the price for getting a full set? Also how many hours would it take?
Answer by Picture Taker
Full set, as in enough implants to support an entire mouth full of teeth? Of course, you would have to include the cost of the teeth, too, or there is no point in getting the implants. There are a couple of ways to restore implants, but I would want you to have at least 8 implants in EACH arch. This allows for the possibility that maybe one or two will fail and you will still have enough left to support your bite. Even with a “frequent flyer” discount, you will pay at least $ 30,000 no matter where you are located. The “premium” restoration for this would be all porcelain and gold crowns, which would cost another $ 40,000 for the attachments to the implants (abutments) and crowns. A somewhat cheaper route would be to have something like a denture that clips over the implants onto a bar, but it would not need the full extension of a denture. This would probably be about $ 10,000 for the dentures and you could get by with fewer implants, but you would still spend at least $ 30-40,000 total.
How many hours would it take to get the implants themselves? All frickin’ day. How long to restore them? That depends on how you do it, but several months is the norm.
