The cost of any dental procedure will vary based on your location, materials used and your specific dental needs. No matter the price, one thing is very clear: the lifetime cost of a dental implant is almost always drastically less than a dental bridge.
The average cost of a 3-unit dental bridge is around $3,300 and lasts 7-10 years before needing to be replaced. Compare that to a dental implant, which is slightly more initially at $4,263 on average, but can last a lifetime.
Over the next 30 years, a bridge may need to be replaced 3 or more times. Choosing a traditional 3-unit bridge over a dental implant could cost you three times as much as a dental implant. Investing slightly more for a dental implant up-front could save you thousands of dollars in the long run.
