Dental implant treatment involves a variety of different fees that can impact your total costs. Some of the most common ones are:
- Extracting any diseased teeth
- Surgical placement of the implant
- The number of implants that you need
- Additional surgeries (such as bone grafting or sinus lifts)
- The final restoration (crown, bridge, All on 4, etc.) that goes on top of the implant
Placing an individual implant usually varies but the more implants you need, the cheaper they become. For instance, getting 4-5 implants is about will cost a little less, because it’s more efficient for the dentist to place several at one time. Six or more implants, and the price drops even more per implant.
Why Implant Treatment May be Cheaper Than You Think
You don’t need a dental implant for every tooth that’s missing. That’s because implants are so strong, we can pair them together to support multiple missing teeth. For example, we might only use two implants to support a four-crown bridge, or four implants to anchor a 12-14 tooth wide “All on 4” prosthesis. This can save you hundreds to thousands of dollars in treatment expenses, without sacrificing the integrity of your smile.
Financing Options Dental Implant Treatment
Most dental insurance plans are beginning to cover implant therapy, at least partially. The balance on the treatment can easily be financed on a month-to-month basis that fits your budget. In most cases, 0% financing is available for up to 12 months. Longer payment plans go as far as five years out from your surgery, making this life changing process a true possibility for most people.
