    Approximately $5000!!!! If I had known the total cost before I started, I would have never done it. I did plenty of research and talked to numerous people whom have had single tooth implants. I figured I would pay no more than $3000. I can’t imagine how anybody could ever afford an entire mouthful. It should not cost so much money to take care of a mouth!

    Was it worth it? Yes
