Cost of a dental implant in various countries 2018

Dental implants are metal screws used to replace the root of a tooth when the root fails for whatever reason. These are implanted surgically into the jawbone. Dental implants can last a very long time but require maintenance visits and dental check-ups. As of 2018, Singapore had the highest costs for dental implants globally. The average cost to have the procedure done in Singapore was about 2,700 U.S. dollars. The United States was the second most expensive country to receive a dental implant with an average cost of 2,500 U.S. dollars.

Dental costs in the U.S.

Dental care can be a costly endeavor for patients in the United States. Year-over-year dental expenditures have increased, with dramatic increases seen in recent years. The costs are somewhat prohibitive to U.S. adults and a significant proportion of adults go without necessary dental care due to costs. Most dental care is paid for by either private insurance plans or out-of-pocket by patients.

Dental health insurance coverage

It is recommended that adults see their dentist regularly for check-ups. However, costs can be quite prohibitive. Less than half of U.S. adults have some form of insurance that covers dental work with those living in the South Atlantic region having the lowest levels of coverage. Older adults have even lower rates of dental coverage despite having more dental health needs than younger populations.
