When you’re thinking about tooth replacement, you’ve likely come across dental implants and how they offer many benefits that stand out from more traditional options. At Texas Dentistry, we want you to be as informed as possible prior to beginning treatment, and that includes understanding how the cost of care can break down depending on your needs. If you’re considering dental implants at Texas Dentistry, take these points into account first and foremost.
There are multiple types of dental implants that can be customized to meet specific needs. Since every implant case is different, your costs will vary based on the number of teeth you need to replace and which type of teeth need replacing. For example, if you only need to replace a single missing tooth with one dental implant, your treatment will be considerably less compared to someone who needs to replace multiple consecutive teeth or an entire arch. We’ll confirm which treatment option is best for you depending on your specific dental concerns.
Dental implant treatment occurs in multiple phases. This includes the surgical placement of the implant, the potential abutment that would go into the implant, and the placement of a restoration. Each step incurs its own unique cost depending on what your needs might be. Furthermore, if you need to have bone grafting performed so that the implant can effectively integrate with your jaw or gum therapy completed so that your gum tissue is healthy enough to heal around your implants after they are placed, this will increase the overall cost of your care.
It’s no secret that dental implants cost a fair amount more than traditional tooth replacements like dentures and dental bridges, but they also come with a fair number of benefits worth considering. Not only do they last for several decades after placement, but they make chewing your favorite foods much easier and more natural-feeling. This is because of the detailed integration process they go through with bone and soft tissue. Because they last for a very long time, you won’t have to worry about replacing them nearly as often as you would with other solutions.
While most dental insurance plans do not cover dental implants, they are more likely to cover services related to the treatment. For example, you may be able to get coverage for the initial consultation about the dental implant process. Insurance may also cover periodontal therapy, which may be necessary if your gums are not healthy enough to receive dental implants. We’re happy to work with you to build a financing plan that’s within your budget, so you can make implant placement and restoration more affordable.
