Full Mouth Dental Implants Cost

Full mouth dental implants, also known as All-on-4 treatment, are restorations that replace missing teeth. They provide a permanent full arch in either the lower or upper jaw (or both) using four implants.

The average cost of full mouth dental implants is between $12,000 to $25,000 per jaw. This total cost is significantly cheaper than the $40,000 it would typically cost for a full set of traditional implants.

How Do All-on-4 Implants Work?

If you have any remaining teeth, the surgeon will extract those first. 

Then, your surgeon will strategically position four implant screws into the jawbone before they fit you with an overdenture. They’ll also use four abutments to fix the prosthesis to the implants.

Traditional implants differ from All-on-4 implants because they are installed separately for each tooth. They are also much more expensive than full mouth implants.

Always discuss your treatment options with an implant specialist or oral surgeon in a dental office.

Factors That Can Affect The Cost of Full Mouth Dental Implants

three main factors can affect the cost of dental implants, including:

  1. Where you live The cost of living in your area could affect how much your implants cost.
  2. The material used to make the implants — Dentists can make implants with a few different materials. The cost can depend on the type (e.g., titanium or zirconium).
  3. The dentist's experience level — Dentists with years of experience may charge more than newer dentists.

Are All-on-4 Implants Covered By Dental Insurance?

Although full mouth dental implants are more affordable than separate implants, the price can still be high.

Many patients use dental insurance to help them pay for treatment. There are dental insurance plans that cover up to 50 percent of major restorative procedures, including implants.

Consult with your provider to determine if your plan covers part of your full mouth implants. If you’re ready to invest in insurance, use an online comparison tool to find a dentistry plan that covers the procedure.

Dental Implants vs. Dentures Cost 

Restoration Type Cost
Full mouth dental implants $12,000 to $25,000 per jaw
Traditional dental implants $40,000 for a full set
Low-cost removable dentures $300 to $500 per denture, or $600 to $1,000 for a full set
Traditional dentures $500 to $1,500 per denture or $1,000 to $3,000 for a full set
Premium heat-cured dentures $2,000 to $4,000 per denture or $4,000 to $8,000 per set

Who is a Candidate for Full Mouth Dental Implants?

The best candidates for full mouth dental implants are people: 

  • With a significant number of missing teeth
  • Who don’t smoke
  • Who don’t have medical conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes

You must have sufficient jawbone structure and gum tissue to support the dental implants. Most denture wearers in good health and with sufficient natural bone are eligible for treatment.

You should have realistic expectations regarding the nature of the treatment. Also, commit to proper care and oral hygiene, including daily brushing and flossing. 

Summary

Full mouth dental implants, also known as All-on-4 treatment, cost between $12,000 to $25,000 per jaw. They are a less expensive alternative to traditional, individual implants, which can cost $40,000 for a full set.

All-on-4 dental implants consist of a full restorative arch that replaces missing teeth. People with sufficient jawbone structure and gum tissue make excellent candidates for a full mouth dental implant, which can vastly improve quality of life.
