Q: I am interested in getting a complete mandibular implant and would like to know an approximate cost.
A: When people use the term, complete mandibular implant, their objective is to enhance along their jawline from the angles to the chin. To achieve that look, there are two different approaches. These different methods affect how the procedure is done and the cost. The first approach, and the most common, is to use three separate implants. This includes off-the-shelf chin and jaw angle implants placed through a submental and intraoral incisions. That total cost averages around $8500 to $9500. The other approach is a custom one-piece implant that is made off of a 3-D CT scan taken from the patient. It may or may not be put in as a one-piece implant but it is completely customized to the patient’s jaw anatomy and aesthetic desires. That total cost is in the range of about $15,000.
