Of course, there is no fixed price which you'll encounter all across the country, and it will certainly vary from state to state, as well as from one dental center to another. A new set of implant-supported dentures can cost anywhere between $1,500 and $4,000, and it's possible that it could cost more, if any other procedures are required to prepare you for the implants. It will also depend on the number of implants which are required to support your dentures, with more implants adding to the cost.
Some dental insurance does cover implants, but it is likely to have some kind of annual limit, so even if you have this kind of coverage, you should check with your carrier to find out how much of the cost will be covered by insurance. It's also possible that the crown or bridge attached to the implant is covered by dental insurance, but the implant itself might not be covered.
Some medical insurance plans do cover implants in situations where medical problems are caused by the loss of a tooth. It's also possible that your implant might be covered by insurance if you lost a tooth because of an accident or an injury, and in this case it would be covered under your accident insurance or medical plan. The bottom line is, check with your insurance carrier to see what kind of coverage you have for your implant-supported dentures.

Dental implants are intended to be permanent replacements for missing teeth, and over the last few years they have become an extremely popular alternative to dentures. They do cost more than dentures, but they last longer and they will probably save you a considerable amount of money over time. When you have dental implants installed, you can count on fewer trips to the dentist, because they're easier to maintain than dentures are. You'll also never have to worry about dental implants falling out or slipping while you're eating or speaking.
Assuming you take good care of your dentures, you can count on them lasting a maximum of between 10 and 15 years. Taking good care of them means that you take them out of your mouth each night and put them in a cleaning solution, so they're not always in your mouth and irritating your gums. Dentures will eventually become worn, and when you find that you're experiencing more slipping when you eat certain foods, or when you're speaking, it may be time for a denture replacement.
