There are single implants, for patients missing one tooth, partial dentures for those with several missing teeth, and even full dentures should they be needed. We frequently receive the same question from patients in Mississauga – how much do dental implants cost?

Dental implant treatments vary widely, which is why it’s important to book a consultation and discuss all costs involved. For example, some dentists provide quotes that don’t include additional work you may need, such as bone grafting. In these scenarios, you could end up paying much more than you anticipated for your new smile. At Damaski Dental, we offer free consultations so you can get all the pricing info you need before making your decision.
Dental implants are most commonly made out of a titanium ‘root’ and ceramic crown. A small metal screw connects the two pieces, however, in some versions, the screw can be part of the crown. Sometimes a patient may require modified materials due to a metal allergy or sensitivity. This can have an effect on the cost of dental implants. The most common alternative to titanium is a ceramic dental implant.
The number of dental implants needed to complete the restoration is one of the largest cost factors, and it will depend on each individual patient. Many patients that are missing all or many of their teeth choose tooth replacement alternatives like dentures, full-arch restoration, or fixed bridges.
Patients that have been missing teeth for over a year without a replacement are much more likely to experience bone loss in their jaw. In order for implants to be placed, there must be sufficient bone density to support the implant. Bone grafting is an extra step and adds to the cost of dental implants.
Dental implants are a great option for those with missing teeth. Losing a tooth affects how you look and how you chew. More importantly, in the long-term, teeth shift and the forces on your remaining teeth will increase. This can lead to further tooth loss in the future. You can rapidly spiral to having no teeth at all, and might eventually require dentures. To make matters worse, tooth loss can also lead to bone loss, making implant solutions more complicated and expensive. Not to forget, having a missing tooth can cause you to lose confidence and avoid smiling.
