Making Dental Implants Affordable

Average Cost of Dental Implants
The bulk of the out of pocket portion of your implant supported tooth replacement will be the price of the implants. A single implant can cost between $500 and $2000. This is just for the implant post. Before you opt for the cheapest version, you should know that the quality of these dental implants varies widely. In addition to the cost of the implant itself, you’ll also need to consider the following aspects of your treatment:
- Preparatory procedures – tooth extractions and/or bone and soft tissue grafts may be necessary prior to treatment
- Sedation – if you choose to use dental sedation during the treatment process, this can be an additional cost
- Restoration – your replacement tooth or teeth will need to be included in the overall cost of care
Insurance & Dental Implants
Unfortunately, the vast majority of dental insurance providers do not currently cover dental implants. However, as more and more dentists are recommending dental implant tooth replacement as the ideal solution, providers are slowly starting to include these procedures. Luckily, most providers will still offer coverage for your preparatory procedures, dental sedation, and your replacement teeth. This is an immense help in planning for the overall cost of your treatment.
Dental Implant Financing Plans
We are happy to work with patients to help them fit the cost of implant supported tooth replacement into their budgets. To start, we will not bill for the entire treatment process at one time. Instead, we will bill each phase of treatment separately. This will allow you to plan ahead and save between treatment visits. We are also happy to work with third part medical and dental financing companies like CareCredit. These third party financiers offer low and no interest payment plans for patients who need to cover the cost of advanced procedures. If you have a flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA), these funds can often be put toward covering the cost of your implant supported tooth replacement plan.
