What to Know About Financing Dental Implants

If you’ve ever called a dental practice asking for a specific price for your future dental implant placement, you were likely not given a very clear answer. This is because dental implants are rarely charged under a flat-rate. Dental implants are one of the most customizable treatments you can get in dentistry, which means every patient’s cost is going to vary depending on their needs. At Cimarron Family Dentistry, we’re prepared to walk you through the most important factors to keep in mind as you learn more about treatment. If you’re ready to get started, give our office a call today!

Types of Dental Implants

As mentioned, every dental implant case is different. This includes the type of dental implants used and the number that need to be placed in order to restore your smile. For example, if you need to place one implant to restore a single tooth, that will cost much less than replacing four to six implants to hold a larger implant-retained bridge or denture. Keeping these factors in mind will help you better establish expectations once you find out how much treatment will cost overall. Additionally, where your dental implants come from and the materials used to create them will also influence total cost, so confirm these traits beforehand.

What are the Stages of Dental Implant Treatment?

Each step of your dental implant treatment comes with its own unique cost. That means the placement of the implant, the potential placement of an abutment to stabilize the implant, and the restoration covering the implant and being a part of your smile, all have their own unique costs. These steps are also affected by the number of implants you need to have placed. It can also extend the length of the treatment overall, which means more time and energy is needed to ensure your tooth replacement is a total success.

Are Dental Implants Worth the Investment?

It is no secret that dental implants are an investment that costs more than a typical tooth replacement. However, they are absolutely worth the price because they offer a truly long-term solution for tooth loss that you won’t find with any other procedure. Not only do they last multiple decades without worry, but in many cases they last the rest of your life as long as you practice minimal maintenance. As a result, you’ll likely pay less for your treatment compared to other traditional dentures and bridges, which need to be repaired and replaced after several years.

Does My Dental Insurance Cover Dental Implants?

While dental implants do not receive coverage by dental insurance in most cases, there are some steps of the treatment that can receive partial coverage. For example, the restoration itself or the preparatory treatments needed to make implants viable (i.e. gum disease therapy or bone grafts) can receive some coverage. If you need additional help paying for dental implants, we encourage you to take a look at third-party financing options available through our practice. These plans offer flexible, low-interest financing and allows payments in monthly installments, even for treatment snot typically covered by dental insurance.
