Molars are more prone to cavities, misalignment, failure of eruption, among others, all of which lead to uncomfortable oral problems. If you lack molars for certain reasons or have to get your molars extracted due to cavities, you can get replacements with a suitable procedure and enjoy a full set of healthy teeth once again.

Why do you need molar implant replacements?

When you lack several teeth, the rest of them are prone to leaning over or moving into the vacant spots, resulting in misalignment. Foods are also likely to get stuck in those spots, increasing the risk of cavities in adjacent teeth and diseases of the gum.

If various teeth are missing, your facial muscles may droop down and your speech may be affected, causing pronunciation problems. Generally, molar replacements help you gain back your confidence, eat more easily, and adopt proper oral hygiene habits.

Molar replacement techniques

To date, there are 3 basic techniques to replace lost molars:

  • Removable dentures: A removable denture has metal clasps that hook around adjacent teeth, keeping it attached to the jaw. However, as the clasps hook tightly around the roots of adjacent teeth, they may damage those teeth and surrounding gum tissue, speeding up jaw bone loss.

Removable dentures


  • Lowest cost in all 3 methods.
  • Preserving real teeth.
  • Cleaning easily since it is removable.
  • Natural shape and color.

Generally, the cost of a removable partial denture will range from 300,000 VND to 500,000 VND per tooth, while with the complete denture is from 2,000,000 VND to 10,000,000 VND.

  • Dental bridges: This technique involves filing down the adjacent teeth and fitting a ceramic bridge over the gap. Bridges are recommended when only one or two teeth are missing, not when you lack various teeth or all of your teeth.

Dental bridges


  • Chewing ability is as good as that of real teeth.
  • High durability, 4-8 times stronger than real teeth, can be used for 10 - 20 years if taken good care.
  • Shape and color are as natural as real teeth.
  • Taking less time, from 5 to 7 days.

In general, the cost of this dental bridge method is much lower than dental implant, so it is suitable for patients with limited budgets. Typically, the cost will range from 3,000,000 VND to 10,000,000 VND per tooth depending on the porcelain material selected for the bridge.

  • Dental implants: Unlike the dental bridge method, a dental implant does not need to grind two adjacent teeth. Instead, the surgeon directly implants the dental implant (diameter of 3.5 - 6 mm, length of 10-15 mm) into the position of the missing tooth. The implant is made of titanium, which is a material with good biocompatibility and is widely used in medical implants. After 3 to 6 months, this implant will attach firmly to the jaw bone and play as a real tooth, then the doctor will put a porcelain crown on it.

Typically, the price will range from 15-25 million VND per tooth depending on the type. Each implant type from different brands will have its own durability and specifications.

How much do molar replacements cost?

Costs of molar replacements depend on the technique and the dental clinic of your choice. The quality of the replacement, facility, and equipment, as well as the experience of the dentists all factor in the cost and longevity of the replacement. You should shop around and take everything into consideration when deciding where to get a molar replacement.

Below are the costs of molar replacements at The East Rose Dental Clinic (Old Rose Dental Clinic):

Why is there such a price for each method?

Implant for missing teeth will take a lot of steps, requiring dentists to be meticulous, careful and skilled. Therefore, the price of implants in each dentistry is different. At the same time, the cost depends on many factors such as:

  • Number of teeth to be planted
  • Method of planting molars
  • The quality and durability of the teeth you choose

Based on the above factors, it is quite normal for implant cost to bring the highest value among 3 types. In case you are limited financially, porcelain bridges may be a more suitable option.

In contrast, implant dentures with removable dentures have the lowest price when compared to implants or porcelain bridges. The reason is that after a few years of use, the dentures may discolor, smell, and become loose due to the discoloration of food and oral fluids. This situation inconveniences users and forces them to innovate.

How to choose the right method?

Besides the implant cost, the condition and the number of missing teeth are also factors to consider when looking for the most appropriate method. More specifically, each implant method will suit a number of different subjects, such as:

  • Porcelain bridges: most people can choose this method, including children. In addition, cases of molar loss due to tooth decay, pulpitis, chipped teeth or broken teeth ... are able to be overcome in this way.
  • Implant: Usually, implant is only suitable for people who are of mature age and in good health. In particular, the bone must be strong enough to receive the implant.
  • Removable dentures: due to the removable features with low cost, for the elderly and people with multiple teeth loss at the same time, this method of implantation is the most suitable solution.
