Since no two patients are the same, the cost of the dental implant treatment will also be unique for each patient. However, it is important to be informed of what will go into the cost of your teeth replacement treatment.
Dr. Vijay Patel is an expert implant dentist in Montclair, CA that wants his patients to be informed about the investment required to get an implant secured dental restoration. It is, of course, a big part of the decision making process when choosing how to replace your missing teeth. The dental staff at Montclair Plaza Dental Group will work with each patient to help them understand and navigate through the insurance and payment process.
The Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants are undoubtedly the number one solution for tooth loss, but they are also the most expensive. One of our dentists will perform a thorough examination of your mouth and review your medical history to determine if you qualify for them. If you do, they will devise a treatment plan to replace your missing teeth with an implant supported dental restoration. Many questions will need to be answered to create the treatment plan and give you an estimated cost:
- Where are the missing teeth located along the arch?
- What size implant(s) will be required?
- How many implants are needed to secure a restoration?
- Do you have sufficient bone density to secure the implants?
- Do you need teeth extracted?
- Do you need other treatments such as gum disease therapy?
- Will your insurance cover any portion of the treatment?
Once our team has these questions answered, we can give you an estimated cost of your implant treatment.
Why are dental implants so expensive?
The process of having a dental implant restoration placed is very intricate and invasive. It involves many visits to our Montclair, CA dentist office for treatments and checkups. A surgical procedure is required where the dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw bone. The whole process will take months to complete and will also requires quality materials. All of this will add up. It is important to remember that this investment is better for your overall quality of life, overall health and oral health.
Will dental insurance cover dental implants?
Understanding dental insurance is often confusing for many patients. We often get asked this question but whether or not dental insurance covers your implants solely depends on the type of coverage you have. We suggest that you reach out to your provider to see if any portion of your implant treatment is partially covered.
Montclair Plaza Dental Group accepts many forms of payments including cash, major credit cards, and checks. We also offer the convenience of financing dental implants with CareCredit for patients that qualify. They offer low or no interest monthly payments that will help cover the cost of treatment.
