What is the Average Cost of Implant Dentures?
The price of implant dentures will be unique to each patient. Typically, the total expense will depend in part on the state of your oral health and whether dental therapy (such as periodontal treatment), tooth extractions, or a bone grafting procedure is necessary prior to placement of the dental implants. Other factors that can affect your cost estimate include:
- The number of dental implants necessary
- The number of teeth that need replacing
- The type and quality of your restoration
- The implantation technique used
The expertise of your dentist and the geographic location where the procedure is performed will also influence the price of implant dentures. Because this restorative treatment is such a subjective procedure, it can be difficult to ascertain the average cost of treatment without knowing the details of your treatment plan. You can be confident that once your unique needs are assessed in a consultation, a friendly member of our team will provide you with a personalized quote as well as a full breakdown of the estimated cost of implant dentures.

Are There Any Implant Denture Alternatives?
Our Bronx-area practice offers several alternatives to implant dentures, including fixed dental bridges and implant-supported bridges. Our team strives to formulate the best possible treatment plan for your needs and preferences, and we will be able to present you with potential alternatives to implant dentures during your consultation.
Generally speaking, dental bridges are designed to replace one or more consecutive missing teeth by filling in the absent space with a partial prosthesis. This prosthesis, which is usually secured to adjacent healthy teeth via dental crowns, is meant to “bridge” the gap. This can help complete your smile as well as restore a well-functioning bite. These restorations differ from implant dentures because they are typically affixed with crowns rather than being anchored to the jawbone, and they only restore a portion of the dentition rather than an entire dental arch. That said, dental bridges can also be secured to your mouth with dental implants if desired, depending on your long-term goals.
Once you visit our practice, our dentists can talk to you about your goals and explore the most ideal treatment options to resolve your concerns. Whether you opt for a fixed or implant-supported restoration, our solutions to replace missing teeth can have both functional and aesthetic benefits for your smile.
