Dental Implants Cost: Factors to Consider
Losing a tooth can be a very difficult experience for adults. It can cause embarrassment, frustration, and fear. And while the upfront cost of a dental implant is undoubtedly more than its counterparts (dentures and bridges), we want you to rest assured that it is by far the best treatment option and the only one that will give you your life back to enjoy fully.
Dental implants are an investment in your lifestyle and well-being, now and in the future.
- They allow you to eat ANYTHING
- They don’t fall out when you are talking
- You can sleep with them
- They look just like natural teeth
- Without them, the jaw deteriorates
- They last longer than bridges or dentures
Does my insurance cover dental implants?
Unfortunately, most insurance providers still consider dental implants to be “elective”, and therefore most do not offer any compensation for them. We hope that in the future, insurance providers will see that dental implants don’t just fulfill an aesthetic role, they also contribute significantly to the health, both oral and overall, of a person.
Comparing Dental Implant Pricing
In order to accurately compare the price of dental implants between providers, it is important to know that there are many steps that play into the price of the dental process from start to finish. Not all practices are transparent about costs and may offer lower-quality services or materials to cut costs and offer you a bargain price. When interviewing dental implant providers, be sure to ask about the cost of:
- Imaging (x-rays, CBCT scans, etc.)
- Implant brand
- Implant surgery
- Final crown restoration
We know that determining the true, final cost of dental implants can be very confusing. At Thomas E. Houston, DMD, PC, we can help you gather the information to make the best-informed decision for you. Please call us today at Eugene Office Phone Number (541) 485-6646.
