Dental Implant Cost



Dental implants are an effective way to replace missing teeth. In fact, many patients find that dental implants are the ideal choice when it comes to dental restorations. Still, some may be concerned about the cost and insurance coverage. At Prosthodontic Dental Group, we pride ourselves on providing the best possible treatment for each patient. If you are concerned about the cost of a dental implant, we can provide financing options that fit your budget, and allow you to receive the best possible care.

Why You Should Replace a Tooth Using a Dental Implant


Dental implants have some advantages over other dental restorations, some of which include:
•  Natural appearance. Dental implants are discrete and mimic the aesthetics of a natural tooth.
•  Bone preservation. When you lose a tooth, your jawbone loses the physical stimulation it needs to avoid deterioration. Dental implants act as the root component of the tooth and provide the necessary stimulation.
•  Prevent shifting. Dental implants will prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of place.
•  Permanent. Dental implants are a permanent solution for tooth loss. With the proper care, implants can last a lifetime.
•  Convenience. Dental implants are non-removable. You can treat them as you would your natural teeth. You can eat your favorite foods with confidence, knowing your implant will not slip or fall out.
•  Durable. Implants can support some restorations, from individual crowns to an entire arch of teeth.

Factors That Affect the Cost of a Dental Implant


Implant treatments are designed to fit the needs of each patient. The number of appointments and procedures can drastically affect costs. Other factors that affect cost include:
•  The number of teeth that need replacement. The more implants you need, the higher the cost.
•  Whether or not you need a bone graft. You must have a significant amount of bone in your lower jaw for implantation to be successful.
•  Whether or not you need a sinus lift. In some cases, bone must be added to your upper jaw to receive a dental implant.
•  The presence of periodontal disease or tooth decay. Dental implants are more successful when placed in a healthy mouth.
•  If a tooth must be extracted. Implants can be used to replace problematic teeth.
•  The type of implant used. Certain materials are more expensive than others.

Many patients may find the initial costs discouraging. However, dental implants have an unparalleled longevity. Other restorations such as bridges, full dentures, and partial dentures may appear to be cheaper, but this is misleading. Over time, you will continue to pay for repairs and replacements, making them more expensive in the long term.

Are implants covered by dental insurance?


Talk with your insurance company to see if they cover dental implants. If they don’t offer full coverage, they may still be able to provide financial assistance. See if they offer coverage equal to the cost of a traditional bridge or denture. Prosthodontic Dental Group also offers some payment plans and accepts a wide variety of insurances. Talk to us to find out more information on pricing.
