When it comes to replacing missing teeth, more and more dentists are encouraging patients to restore their smiles from the roots up, using dental implant supported tooth replacement options. However, many patients are concerned with the high price tag that can come along with these treatments. Unfortunately, most dental insurance providers still haven’t caught up with dentists when it comes to dental implant tooth replacement. The majority of benefit plans still don’t cover these treatments that are considered the ideal restorative solutions by many dentists. Patients struggle to move forward with implant supported tooth replacement because they’re worried about the out of pocket treatment costs. Before you choose a tooth replacement option based entirely on cost, call to schedule a consultation with Kind Care Dentistry. Our Orange Park dentistry team works with patients on a regular basis to fit the cost of dental implant supported tooth replacement into almost any budget.
The main part of the cost of dental implant tooth replacement is the price of the dental implants and their surgical placement. A single dental implant post can cost anywhere between $500 and $2500 or more. The surgical placement of a single implant can cost several hundred additional dollars, depending on your unique situation. In most cases, the price of each additional implant posts is discounted, and as long as they are all placed on the same day, your surgical costs remain the same. This is helpful for patients with more advanced tooth loss.
In addition to the price of your dental implant post and their surgical placement, you should consider the following factors that can add to the price of dental implant tooth replacement:
Unfortunately, the dental implants and their surgical placement are not typically covered by dental insurance. However, the preparatory treatments, dental sedation, and replacement teeth may all receive coverage. We’ll work with you to ensure you receive the maximum insurance coverage for all of your necessary treatments.
Our team is happy to work with third party financiers like CareCredit to provide low and no interest financing plans for patients. Additionally, we can help you spread the cost of treatment out by collecting payment for individual services at each visit rather than collecting the entire fee for implant tooth replacement upfront. If you have a flexible spending account (FSA) or health saving account (HSA) as part of your benefit package, using these funds is another great way to finance your dental implant treatments. Our team is happy to help you with your financing needs, so please don’t hesitate to talk to us.
