Choosing dental implants to replace your missing teeth is a big financial decision that will require sufficient planning. Our helpful staff is here to openly discuss the specifics of all of your dental implant costs and payment options with you during your consultation. The total cost of a dental implant procedure can vary widely, depending on several key factors:
- The number of dental implants needed
- Then size and location of the dental implant
- Whether you need bone grafting or additional procedures to restore your oral health
- Whether you need teeth extractions
Comparing the Costs: Dental Implants vs Dentures and Bridges
When compared to dentures and dental bridges, dental implants cost more. But dental implants are the superior option because they can last a life time. Dentures and dental bridges may require replacement, realignment, or need rebased over time. This cost can add up depending on the wear and tear. Even though the cost is higher, the quality of life with dental implants is also significantly higher. With dentures, you will have about a 30-40% normal chewing function. Dental implants will deliver a 100% normal chewing function.
Will My Insurance Cover Dental Implants?
Each patient’s dental insurance is unique and coverage will vary depending on the plan. Most dental insurance plans are geared towards preventive care and will cover the cost of preventive care services such as dental cleanings, oral examinations and x-rays. Not many dental insurance plans will fully cover the cost of dental implants. Some insurance plans will partially cover the dental fabrication such as the crown or the denture. We accept most dental insurance and can help you maximize your benefits. As a courtesy, before we start the dental implant process, we will contact your dental insurance provider to check your benefits and submit claims on your behalf.
Our office is not responsible for and can make no guarantees as to the coverage your dental insurance will provide for dental implants. As the patient, it is ultimately your responsibility to know your dental insurance benefits and you are responsible for all charges. You are responsible for providing us with current and accurate insurance information.
