Dental implants are more long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing alternative to tooth replacement options like dentures. The cost of dental implants is a common concern when people begin their research into alternative to dentures. How much do they cost? How long do they last? Will I ever need to replace them? If you’re looking into dental implants for the first time, these questions may be at the top of your mind too. In this blog post, we’ll explore topics related to the cost of dental implants.
Dental implants are more expensive than removable dental appliances.
It is true that dental implants are more expensive than removable dental appliances. As we’ll cover here, however, that increase in cost brings with it great benefits over removable appliances such as dentures. For this reason, when they learn more about dental implants and see our results, many patients feel dental implants are worth the increase in cost.
What is the cost of dental implants?
It is difficult to give an accurate cost estimate without a consultation. The cost of dental implants can vary a fair amount from patient to patient based on a host of different factors. In fact, the average price of treatment and the general price range doesn’t always convey the full story about the procedure and what it entails.
With that in mind, while we will be more than happy to provide patients with a personalized price quote for their implant dentistry procedure during their visit to the practice. To schedule your consultation, give us a call at 1-800-NEW-LOOK or reach out to us using the contact form below.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Dental Implants
Some of the factors that can affect the total cost of dental implants treatment include the following:
- The location of the oral surgeon/dental practice
- The credentials of the oral surgeon(s)
- The number of dental implants to be placed
- The type of dental implants to be placed
- The need for bone grafting surgery prior to the placement of the dental implants
- The need for gum augmentation surgery prior to the placement of the dental implants
- The complexity of the patient’s case
- Promotions and discounts unique to an individual practice
How does the cost of dental implants compare to the cost of other appliances?
Getting dental implants tends to be more expensive than the cost of getting removable dental appliances or fixed dental appliances that involve the use of dental crowns. The stability and health benefits of dental implants do make up for the difference in cost, however, which is important to keep in mind.
Are dental implants covered by my insurance?
No, very rarely. Dental implants are considered an elective dental procedure, and it can be rare for medical or dental insurance plans to offer coverage of the oral surgery and placement of dental implants.
How do monthly financing payment options work?
Monthly financing plans for dentistry work much like traditional loans and credit cards. The patient is responsible for making monthly installment payments for the total cost of the procedure they have undergone. A reasonable interest rate is applied to the total amount owed.
