While dental implants may cost more up front, other dental restorations may actually end up costing more over the years due to maintenance and replacement. While the price tag may be overwhelming, it is important to remember that teeth implants are an investment in your health and quality of life. An implant supported dental restoration is the next best option to natural teeth. They will look, feel and function similarly.
Dental Implant Cost
It is difficult for our dentists to quote the estimated cost of dental implants since each patient will have their own unique circumstances. To get an accurate estimate, we must do a full mouth examination and know your full medical history. We have to know the current state of your oral health and see if you require any treatments that will need to be performed before the implants can even be placed. The dentists at Tyma Trachtenberg Dental in Doylestown, PA will need to know the following:
- Where are the missing or damaged located in the mouth?
- What size and type of dental implants will be required to secure the dental restoration?
- How many implants will be required to secure the restoration?
- Is a bone graft necessary to build up the bone mass?
- Will damaged teeth need to be extracted?
- Is gum disease present? If so, that will require additional treatment.
- Will your insurance cover any portion of the treatment?
Then we will be able to create a customized treatment plan that is geared towards your needs and wants. Last, our staff will be able to present you with a total treatment cost. To give you an idea, the replacement of a single tooth can cost up to $5,000. From there, the cost will go up based on the above listed criteria. People who will be replacing an entire row of teeth should expect the treatment to cost tens of thousands of dollars.
As a courtesy to our patients, we will file any insurance claims. If your insurance covers any portion of the implant treatment, your personal cost will be less. As you know, dental insurance plans vary greatly. We will review your plan to help you during this process. It is important to note that not many plans cover full implant services. At best, the restoration may be partially covered. We encourage our patients to reach out to their providers to discuss further and learn what is and is not covered.
We want to make paying for your treatment as easy and manageable as possible. For your convenience we offer many forms of payments for your dental implant treatment including:
- Cash or Personal check
- Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover Cards
- Financing Options
We are proud to offer our patients the option of financing their dental implants. We offer financing through Care Credit™ for patients that qualify. They offer low and no interest loans with monthly payments.
