Affordable Dental Implants
In recent years, an increasing number of dental offices have encouraged patients to replace missing teeth with dental implant supported restorations. However, advanced restorative dentistry procedures like dental implant tooth replacement can stretch any budget. These treatments may require a significant investment of time and money on the front end, but because the results are longer lasting than other tooth replacement options, they do lead to long term savings. At the Midwest Dental Center, our knowledgeable team will happily work with patients to maximize insurance coverage, budget for treatment, and receive low or no interest financing through CareCredit. Our goal is to offer affordable dental implants, so every patient gets the quality dental restoration they deserve. Please don’t hesitate to contact our Midwest City dental office to schedule a tooth replacement consultation to find out more.
The Cost of Implant Supported Tooth Replacement
Dental implants vary widely in cost. The size of the implant post, the material used, and the manufacturer all impact the price. Some low end implants can be as little as $500 a piece, but higher quality implants typically run between $1500 and $3000 each. We are happy to talk to you about a range of options that we think offer a predictable success rate, but the average dental implant cost is still about $2000 per implant prior to restoration. That means the total treatment cost to replace a single tooth with a dental implant will be between $3000 and $4500.
Dental Insurance Coverage
The first thing the Midwest Dental Center team will do when pricing your dental implant treatment is evaluate your dental insurance policy. By having a complete understanding of your coverage and how dental implants fit into the benefit plan, we’re able to minimize out of pocket costs associated with these treatments. More insurance providers than ever before are offering a percentage of coverage for patients in need of dental implant supported tooth replacement. Even if the implant procedure is not covered, we are usually able to use dental insurance for the replacement tooth or dental prosthetics. In some cases, we’re able to work with medical insurance providers to offer coverage for the surgical placement of the implant post.
CareCredit Financing Plans
Patients who want to spread the cost of treatment across several months, may want to consider getting preapproved for financing through CareCredit. This third party financier specializes in offering low and no interest payment plans for qualified patients. This is a great solution to cover the out of pocket costs of treatment without needing to pay high interest rates from traditional credit cards.
Flexible Spending & Health Savings Accounts
Many companies offer flexible spending accounts or health savings accounts as part of their employees’ insurance benefit packages. If you have an opportunity to take advantage of either of these options, this can be a great way to offset the cost of your dental implant placement. Talk to your company’s human resources or benefits office to find out more about these savings accounts that often include employer matching contributions.
