You’ve had a partial denture for about a year and you’re still not a fan of it – although the tooth you lost is in the back of your mouth, you just can’t get used to the wiggling that sometimes happens when you speak, and you haven’t been able to enjoy your favorite treat – chewy caramels – in what feels like a lifetime. You’re curious about dental implants in Canton, but you have questions about how much they cost. Luckily for you, the team at Legacy Dental Group are here to answer your inquiries and provide the details you need to improve your smile and make removable dentures a thing of the past.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
As your premier implant dentist in Canton, our experts explain that these generally cost anywhere from $3000 to $4500 for each single implant. This includes the fees for oral surgery to place the implant, and all of the parts of the replacement tooth – the biocompatible titanium implant post, the abutment, and the dental crown. Bear in mind, this estimate does not include the price of bone grafting procedures, which are sometimes needed to augment your natural dental structures to make sure your jawbone can support the implant – if this is needed, additional costs may occur.
What Impacts The Cost Of Dental Implants?
There are a few factors that contribute to the cost of dental implants, including:
- Your geographical location.
- The experience and qualifications of the oral surgeon and periodontist who perform your implant procedures.
- The type of implant used – the most commonly used implants are manufactured in Sweden, and, although generic implants are available, these haven’t been researched or found as effective as the reputable Swedish brand – these have a success rate of at least 90% and are the best quality available.
Can I Afford Dental Implants?
Absolutely! We strive to make a healthy, radiant smile affordable for every patient. And, considering that dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care, they’ll actually be a better investment than dentures that cost anywhere from $300 – $5000 – and that need to be replaced every 5 years or so. We can help you make the economical long-term choice with the following options:
- Insurance Coverage – Although most dental plans don’t cover implants (since they’re viewed as an elective procedure), you may have benefits for the dental crown portion of the replacement tooth – give us a call and we’ll be happy to verify your coverage. And, you can research supplemental dental implant insurance plans that have remarkably reasonable monthly premiums.
- CareCredit Financing – If you’re interested in low monthly payments, CareCredit financing is a great option.
- Flexible Spending Accounts – Many employers offer HSAs or FSAs that allow you to use your tax-free contributions to cover procedures like dental implants. The smartest way to use your benefits you have available is to schedule your oral surgery for the implant post around the end of the year, and then waiting until the beginning of the next year to have the abutment and dental crown added.
Now that you know what affects the costs of dental implants and that you can afford these, schedule your appointment for a consultation with Legacy Dental Group to get started on the path for an upgraded smile!
