The Cost of Dental Implants
Did you know that dental implant cost can be spread out over time with convenient payment plans? Many patients mistakenly think that they will need to pay the entire cost, up front. The reality is that the entire dental implant procedure can take some time and involve several steps. That means that you will have the ability to pay for each procedure as it is completed.
The Cost of Dental Implants is a LIFETIME Investment in YOU
Dental Implants are a LIFETIME investment in your health as well as your appearance. A full set of teeth makes eating a pleasure again, making it easier to eat a balanced, healthy diet. A full set of teeth also preserves the contours of the face, keeping you from looking old before your time.
Dental implants may seem expensive, especially when they are compared to other tooth replacement methods like dentures and bridges. However, those methods typically have to be repaired or replaced every 5 to 10 years. The cost of that regular maintenance can eventually equal the cost of implants. With regular brushing and flossing, the implant screw itself can last a lifetime, assuming you continue to get regular dental check-ups every 6 months.
Dental implants also prevent your jawbone from deteriorating due to missing teeth. Dentures and bridges can't do that. As your jaw deteriorates, your face shape can change. You'll start to look older and your existing teeth will start to become loose. The jawbone provides the structure that holds your teeth's roots in place. Once it's gone, you'll lose your other teeth as well.
How can I determine what the EXACT costs of my implants will be?
The exact price of dental implants can only be determined by a thorough examination by our dentist. Each case can be slightly different, and each patient's needs can differ. We will use our state-of-the-art technology and 3D Diagnostic X-Rays to determine your exact needs. Our dentist will use the 3D scan image to determine the density of the bone and to see whether you're a candidate for an immediate implant or if some additional grafting will be needed prior to implant placement. Fortunately, we offer a FREE, no obligation dental implant consultation! What do you have to lose?
Dental Implant Cost - Dental Insurance
Great News! If you have traditional dental insurance it will likely cover some of the costs for dental implants.
Traditional insurance is welcomed and accepted at our practice. As a courtesy, we will gladly file all insurance claims on your behalf. Dental insurance generally does not cover all dental implant expenses. Dental insurance is designed to help reduce your out-of-pocket dental expenses and there will be some sort of out-of-pocket expense that you will be expected to pay at the time of service. Luckily, we also offer financing options.
Dental Implant Cost - Convenient Financing Options
First, check with your dental insurance carrier to see what portion, if any, of dental implants they cover. Third party healthcare financing can be used to cover you out of pocket expenses. Third party healthcare financing can work several different ways. While all are based on your credit, some require down payments while others do not. The terms for how long you can extend your payments can also vary. Regardless of your financial situation, there may very well be a financing option that will work for you! We are pleased to offer several different financing options depending on your needs.
