Cost of Dental Implants
We design a custom treatment plan based on the individual needs of every patient. Therefore, there is no one flat rate for dental implants.
When searching for a dental implant surgeon, you may find clinics that advertise for "bargain" dental implants. Offices that offer "bargain" implants often use implants that lack research or trusted clinical studies. Keep in mind that a dental implant is a surgically inserted device that requires expert planning and precision.
By choosing an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, you can feel confident that you are receiving high-grade dental implants from trained and qualified surgical professionals. We use advanced imaging technology to map out every detail of your surgical procedure, and our surgeons offer many anesthesia options to ensure your comfort.
Finance Your Dental Implant Treatment
Our office accepts financing options, which can help you afford the care you need and pay off your balance over time. Whether you are receiving a single dental implant or a brand new smile, financing provides patients with more financial flexibility.
- CareCredit®. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card you can use to pay for medical expenses not covered by insurance.
At the consultation, our staff will explain your financing options and show you how to apply online.
Does Insurance Cover Dental Implants?
Some medical and dental insurance plans cover a portion of dental implant treatment. Although some plans may not cover the dental implant procedure, they may cover a portion of 3D scans, bone grafting, tooth extractions, or other parts of your oral surgery treatment.
Our staff will make every effort to maximize your insurance reimbursement. We are happy to submit a claim to your insurance on your behalf, provided we have the necessary information. Prior to your consultation, we recommend contacting your insurance company directly to find out the details of your coverage.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants look and function like natural teeth. The implant post acts like an artificial tooth root, providing your implant with stability. Unlike bridges and dentures, implants become a fixed addition to your smile and allow you to eat, speak, and laugh comfortably.
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that prevents bone loss, contributing to your long-term oral health. Implants also prevent adjacent teeth from shifting into the open space, and you can receive as many implants as you need to restore your smile. When placed by an oral surgery expert, dental implants have high success rates and can last a lifetime with proper dental care.
Dentures and bridges are often cheaper upfront because they do not require surgery. However, these options accrue additional costs over time. You should replace your denture or bridge every few years due to wear and tear. Without a tooth root or implant post stimulating the jaw bone, the jaw will atrophy. This may require costly and extensive bone repair surgery in the future.
Choosing dental implants today is an investment in your oral health for many years to come. With proper care, your implants have the potential to last a lifetime.
