Before we begin your dental implant tooth replacement plan, we may need to provide preparatory services like tooth extractions and bone or soft tissue grafts to ensure successful treatment results.
Dental Implants & Surgical Placement
The cost of the dental implant posts themselves will make up the majority of your overall treatment price. This is due to the fact that dental insurance providers do not typically provide any coverage for these procedures. Additionally, the high quality materials that implant posts are crafted from can be costly. The manufacturers who custom craft these replacement tooth roots offer flawless and functional results, but these custom dental implants come at a premium. In addition to the posts themselves, there is also a connector piece, called an abutment and the attachment pieces that affix the restoration to the implant posts that will factor into overall cost of your implant post.
The type of replacement tooth or teeth you need will also impact your budget. Typically, a single dental crown is much more budget-friendly than bridges, partials, or full dentures. Dental insurers do usually offer the same coverage for implant retained prosthetics that they provide for traditional crowns, bridges, and dentures, which will offset the costs of this aspect of care.
Additional Pricing Factors
You may elect to use sedation dentistry to ensure complete comfort during the more invasive elements of dental implant tooth replacement plans. These services may be covered by some insurers, but in most cases, you’ll need to pay for these costs out of pocket. While your insurance will not likely cover the cost of dental implants, we will do our best to maximize any available benefits. In addition to making the most of your dental benefits, we may also be able to help you apply for low or no interest financing through third party financiers.
