The Cost of Dental Implants
Do you have missing teeth? Restore your perfect smile with dental implants from Discovery Dental.
The team at Discovery Dental are experts at dental implant surgery and are committed to providing their patients with affordable dental implants. Although dental implants are more costly than alternatives, they are often the best solution for our patients. We work hard to find ways to bring the cost of dental implants within reach for all our patients who need them.
The Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants are significantly more expensive than dentures, crowns, and bridges. A single implant usually ranges from $3,000 to $5,000. The cost of dental implants depends on several factors, including:
- How many teeth are being replaced?
- Are the teeth front teeth or back teeth?
- Are there any complications with the placement of the teeth?
- Are you receiving sedation or general anesthetic?
- Are you receiving a bone graft?
If you intend to get teeth whitening services in the future, it is essential to finish tooth whitening before getting dental implants. If you get dental implants first, the dental implants will remain their original color, and they will stand out from the other natural teeth.
Paying for Dental Implants
Many insurance policies do not cover implants because less costly alternatives are available. To find out if your dental plan covers dental implants, read the description of coverage that your employer or your insurance company gave to you or call the insurance company.
We offer financing options, which allow you to pay for dental implants on an installment plan.
Dental Savings Accounts
If you have money in a dental savings account, you might be eligible for discounts on dental implants.
Will Insurance Cover Dental Implants?
Dental insurance often does not cover the cost of dental implants, and the amount of coverage that you have depends on your policy. Be sure to read the details of your policy and talk with your dental insurance policy before planning for dental implant surgery.
Types of Dental Implants
Dental implants are dental prosthetics that replace one or more missing teeth. Unlike traditional dentures and bridges, they attach to the jaw with a screw made of metal or metallic substance.
Implant insertion requires a strong jawbone to support the implants. If your dentist believes that your jawbone is not strong enough to hold an implant on its own safely, they might order a bone graft.
Dental implants can replace a few or even all of your teeth. Implants that replace more than one tooth are implant-supported bridges, and implants that replace an entire upper or lower set of teeth are called implant-supported dentures.
In many cases, an implant-supported denture will rest on only four screws. This all-on-four design saves money compared to multiple individual implants because the dentist or dental surgeon only has to implant four screws instead of sixteen single dental implants. In addition, some implant-supported dentures can snap on and off the screws for removal and cleaning.
