What does a full set of dental implants cost?

Prospective patients can spend a great deal of time trying to find a price for full-mouth dental implants. 

But advertised final figures aren’t always all-encompassing.

So, what should a full set of dental implants cost and what should be included? 

What should a full set of dental implants cost? 

Multiple factors will influence the cost of your full-mouth dental implants, including:

The type of implant treatment you choose

Implant-retained dentures, where prices range from £10,000 – £16,000. 

Implant-retained dentures are not as stable a solution as the other options below, as there is still an element of movement that can affect normal eating or speech.

 All-on-four, or all-on-six dental implants, can range between £17,000 – £35,000. 

All-on-four dental implants commonly involve bone grafting, an extra procedure that can soemtimes incur further costs and healing time. Similarly, a permanent prosthesis is not usually fitted on surgery day, resulting in months of wearing temporary dentures or other non-permanent teeth. 

Clinic-specific options, including EvoDental’s EvoSolution™, are available from £9,900 – £28,000.

The EvoSolution is milled bespoke to each patient and fitted on surgery day – negating the need for temporary dentures while the mouth heals. The EvoSolution also ensures patients can enjoy a full, varied diet again and are not held back by awkward and strenuous cleaning routines. 

If you need additional treatment 

Some patients need additional procedures including bone grafts, sinus lifts, and even gum disease treatment before their dental implant procedure can be completed. 

Clinic treatment procedure

Some clinics can fit a prosthesis on surgery day, while some require months of healing with a temporary denture before treatment can be completed. 

This may be because they lack an in-house laboratory to manufacture the prosthetics, or because they do not follow the same treatment protocol as other clinics. 

What should dental implant prices include?

Some clinics, however, do offer a final, all-inclusive cost which incorporates everything a patient may need to complete full-mouth dental implant treatment, including:

1. Consultations 

The consultation process is requisite for assessing patient suitability for treatment and giving the dentist some of the information they need to carry out the treatment.

These consultations should also be no-obligation and based on educating patients about their treatment needs and options. 

2. Scans and imagery 

Also necessary for a smooth treatment process, scans and imagery are often charged as non-negotiable costs. 

However, for the clinician to properly plan and safely complete treatment, scans, X-rays and imagery are absolutely essential, as they are the only way to check for potential implant locations and ensure patients don’t need additional procedures. 

3. Local anaesthetic

Local anaesthetic is needed to complete all invasive dental procedures, including smile-in-a-day dental implants. 

There are a few things that will incur an extra charge, however, and they are marked in red to highlight this difference. 

4. Alternative anaesthetic 

Most clinics use a local anaesthetic to numb the surgery site, so patients who require alternative anaesthetics should expect an increased price to reflect this change. 

Not only will swapping from a local to a general anaesthetic alter costs for the anaesthetic itself, but extra time may be incurred for preparing for and completing the procedure, which needs to be accounted for. 

Similarly, a change to general anaesthetic may also include changes to aftercare and recovery – making it a swap that should only be considered by those who truly need it. 

5. Bone grafts and sinus lifts

As additional procedures that need be completed before your dental implants can be fitted, these will, of course, garner an extra charge in some cases.

The only way around this, if you need such preparatory treatments, is to opt for a dental implant solution that can be fitted in complex cases, without the need for bone grafts or sinus lifts.
