If you have a full mouth of failing, loose or missing teeth, you might wonder how much it costs to replace them – and if you’ll have to replace each tooth, especially if you’re considering using devices like dental implants. The cost to replace a full mouth of missing teeth can vary as there are different prosthetic systems – some of which cut corners, as seen with dentures. But it’s not just with dentures that you can replace a full set of missing teeth without replacing each gap – there are specific implant systems that do this, too.
Let’s explore them and their prices below.
How much is a full mouth of implants in the UK?
Is it possible to have a full mouth of dental implants?
A single dental implant costs £2,950, so replacing a full set of missing teeth will likely cost upwards of £35,400 if you replace each gap. Whilst having a full mouth of dental implants is possible, it’s not always the most cost-effective option. Although it would promote the best bone health, similar results can be achieved using implant-integrated treatments like All-on-Four or Implant-Retained Dentures. View all costs.
How many implants are needed for a full mouth?
As mentioned above, replacing each missing tooth is not always necessary. Instead, you can use advanced systems like All-on-Four, which replace an entire row of missing teeth using just four dental implants. All-on-Four typically costs around £14,000 per jaw because it’s the best full-mouth solution, as it’s fixed and offers the least degree of movement. So, if you need to replace the bottom and upper arches, you can expect to pay around £28,000.
On the other hand, cheaper systems like Implant-Retained Dentures cost £8,999 to replace a full row of missing teeth using typically around three dental implants. The cost to replace the upper and lower teeth would be £17,998. But the downside to Implant-Retained Dentures (or snap-in dentures) is that they are removable and require a sufficient amount of bone density to place (unlike All-on-4).
Can I get full mouth dental implants on NHS?
Dental implants are not available on the NHS. Instead, patients looking to replace a full mouth of missing teeth will be recommended acrylic dentures.

Paying for dental implants
Replacing a full mouth of missing teeth is not always cheap. But that does not mean to say it cannot be manageable. Using dental finance, whether interest-free over 12 months or interest-bearing (14.9%) over 60 months, can help make paying for a full mouth of dental implants achievable.
For example, say you opted for a full jaw of All-on-4 at £14,000 over 60 months; you would pay £325.52 per month if you didn’t place a deposit. For example, placing a deposit of £5,000 can bring down monthly payments as low as £209.27.
Cheaper but not healthier options
Whilst dental implants are the superior way to replace missing teeth, they’re not the only option available. Traditional tooth replacement treatments exist, like dentures or bridgework. In edentulous cases, acrylic dentures (removable) are the most common, which rely on suction and adhesives to stay in place.
- From £700 per jaw
- £1,400 for both jaws
Dentures must also be replaced every five to ten years and might require more repairs. Explore palateless dentures.
