Dental Implant Materials & Pricing
The bulk of the cost of your dental implant procedure will be the implant post itself. Dental implants are typically crafted from high quality titanium, and these implant posts can cost between $1500 and $2000 each. For a single a dental implant post, the surgical placement, and the attachment of a replacement tooth, the entire out of pocket cost will usually range from $2000 to $3500. While it may be tempting to ask for the cheapest option, some of the non-titanium implants haven’t withstood arduous testing to ensure their efficacy. Our team will discuss the options we offer that have been tested and proven successful.
Other Aspects of Dental Implant Tooth Replacement
In addition to the cost of your dental implants and their surgical placement, you will need to consider the costs of other aspects of this treatment plan, including:
- Preparatory procedures – tooth extractions, bone grafts, and soft tissue grafting may be necessary to ensure successful implant placement
- Sedation dentistry – you may choose to use dental sedation during one or more parts of the implant placement or restoration process
- Replacement teeth – you will need a dental crown to replace one missing tooth, a fixed bridge to replace two or more consecutive teeth, or a partial or full denture to replace numerous teeth
Dental Insurance & Dental Implants
While the vast majority of dental insurance plans don’t cover the cost of dental implants or their surgical placement, other aspects of the process may be covered by your benefit plan. Preparatory treatments like tooth extraction are typically given partial coverage within dental insurance plans. You may also receive coverage from dental benefits for the cost of dental sedation services and the tooth replacement prosthetics.
In addition to working with your dental insurance provider to ensure you receive the maximum coverage for services that are included in your benefit plan, we will also help you receive financing for your out of pocket treatment costs. Our team works with CareCredit to provide low and no interest payment plans for qualified patients. You can get prequalified online, or one of our team members will be happy to assist you with your application during your dental implant consultation.
