How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
Dental implants are an investment.
On the surface, dental implants look incredibly expensive, especially when they are compared to other tooth replacement methods. However, dentures and bridges, the two alternatives, typically have to be repaired or replaced every 5 to 10 years. The cost of this regular maintenance may quickly outstrip the costs of simply turning to implants, which can last a lifetime (so long as you care for them properly). They also prevent your jawbone from deteriorating—dentures and bridges can’t do that.
As your jaw deteriorates, your face shape will change. You’ll start to look older. Moreover, your existing teeth will start to grow loose. The jawbone provides the structure that holds your teeth’s roots in place. Once it’s gone, you’ll lose your other teeth as well. Keeping the rest of your teeth in your mouth is priceless.
Thus, we encourage you to think of dental implants as an investment, and not as an expense.
If you need zygomatic implants you can expect the costs to be slightly higher. Zygomatic implants are a little longer than regular implants, and they require a lot more skill and training to place.
They are designed for patients with significant bone and gum loss. The good news is that because we can provide zygomatic implants you’re only paying for one surgery—not two. Zygomatic implants are great because they allow us to skip bone graft surgeries altogether.
Dental Insurance Coverage
The good news is most dental insurance providers cover some of the costs for dental implants. Insurance doesn’t typically cover all the expenses so you’re probably still going to have to put some money aside before you can schedule your dental implant procedure, but certainly not as much as you would if you didn’t have insurance.
In addition, many of our patients take advantage of our ability to offer Care Credit financing, which gives them the ability to pay for their dental implants with a series of affordable monthly installments. We also offer patient financing through Lending Club.
