How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
*dental implants prices are exclusive of any insurance plans, which may alter cost
The cause of your missing tooth or teeth could have been an accident or lost to a disease, but whatever the reason the fact of the matter is that you have to replace them. Dental implants are the best option to do, but the final costs can be quite pricey. Here at Walton Family and Implant Dentistry, we want you to get the treatment you deserve. We are happy to meet with you to discuss dental implants, including the procedure, the costs and dental implant insurance coverage during your consultation with us at our Greenwood area practice.
Many other offices take several months and even over a year for dental implants to be completed. At Walton Family and Implant Dentistry, we use advanced techniques and modern technology to get your dentistry completed for you quickly. However, this operation does require time and focus. Materials, implants, crowns, and other factors make up the price that you pay.
Without complications, you are looking anywhere from $1,500 to $3,000 per single implant with a crown. Discounts are given when paying by cash or check and when multiple implants are placed, the cost per implant generally goes down. Payment plans are also available. Bridges and dentures are cheaper alternatives, but the price to maintain them over time will add up and go over the initial price of the implants over time. Dental implants are a much better quality and are built to last.
As you can see from the content above, a dental implant procedure can add up to be a major expense and can be near impossible to pay for if you have to pay upfront without any financial help at all. Dental implant insurance exists to help you pay for this expensive operation and keep out of pocket costs at the lowest price possible.
Unfortunately, although more dental insurance companies are covering dental implants, there are still many plans that will not cover the placement of a dental implant. It is important to research each dental insurance plan thoroughly before signing up for one. It is common for dental insurance companies to advertise that they do not offer financial help to those that specifically want dental implant insurance. There are other companies that do not offer financial help for the actual implants, but can cover some of the costs of the crown (or denture) and laboratory work.
There are generally no insurance companies that will cover the cost of dental implants completely, but there are quite a few that realize that missing teeth can lead to oral problems which is why they can cut costs down by a significant amount.
If you have any questions about the cost of dental implants or wish to inquire about dental implant insurance then give us a call today. We’ll answer any question you have and schedule an appointment for a dental implant examination. Also, Walton Family & Implant Dentistry is currently offering a $500 OFF dental implant discount.
Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth.
The entire dental implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the dental implant itself, where a screw is placed into the jaw bone. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed the gums are sutured.
The dental implant must be allowed about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time you can have temporary crowns installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.
After the implant has healed it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. One this is placed an impression of the abutment is taken and is used to create your permanent restoration. Some offices have an onsite lab to create the crown, but others will have to send it to an outside lab. Once the restoration is completed you can return to the office to attach the restoration permanently. Your smile will look just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
