When it comes to your own decisions about your medical and dental health, we want our patients to feel confident with their decisions. To assist, we proudly offer the financial assistance and support that you need to achieve your dream smile. Below are just a few options we have available.
The Cost of Dental Implants
On average, a dental implant procedure can cost between $1,000 and $4,000. However this number will fluctuate depending on the number of implants that are being placed and if the patient requires any supplemental procedures.
Some examples of supplemental procedures that may be needed are a bone graft or a gum graft. These two procedures are similar, wherein it requires the removal of tissue from one part of the patient’s body and surgically applying it to the affected area. If a patient is uncomfortable with the removal of their own tissue, there are synthetic and donated tissues available as well.
Dental Insurance and CareCredit
We are proud to have worked well with dental insurance providers in the past, as well as financial lending services such as CareCredit. If you will be utilizing your dental insurance as payment for your procedure, we highly encourage you to become more familiar with your insurance plan. Be sure to understand what is and what is not covered under your plan. For some insurance plans, they will only cover about half of the cost, or may not cover procedures if they are categorized under cosmetic treatments.
CareCredit is a financing service that is committed to providing financial support for health, beauty, and wellness procedures. We have worked with CareCredit in the past and will be happy to work out a financial plan that fits your budget.
Cost of No Treatment
While we understand that many patients may still feel hesitant about the dental implant process, the last thing we want to see is for our patients to not seek treatment at all. Studies have shown that patients may suffer some psychological side effects from tooth loss, such as a lack of confidence, social skills, or even oral health.
In terms of effects to your oral health, medical studies have found links between oral health and the health of your cardiovascular or respiratory systems. Also, lost teeth leave quite a large gap, which heightens the risk of infection and periodontal disease.
