The Price of Dental Implant Posts
Much of the cost of dental implant tooth replacement is the price associated with the dental implant posts and their surgical placement. Depending on the number and location of missing teeth, number of implant posts, and the materials used to craft the implants, the cost of your treatment plan will vary dramatically. A single dental implant post will usually cost between $500 and $3000. If you need additional implant posts, most manufacturers offer reduced rates for each of the next implants. As long as your implant posts are placed on the same day, your surgical costs remain about the same, saving you additional overall treatment costs.
Other Treatments Involved in Implant Tooth Replacement
In addition to the cost of the dental implant posts and their placement, you will need to keep the following treatment costs in mind:
- Removal of damaged or decayed teeth
- Treatment of pre-existing oral health conditions like gum disease
- Placement of bone or soft tissue grafts to ensure adequate support for dental implants
- Use of dental sedation to maximize comfort
- The replacement dental crown, fixed bridge, partials, or full dentures
Insurance & Financing Options
To help patients budget for the costs of their treatment plan, we bill for each step of the implant tooth replacement process individually. One of the most common questions our patients have about implant tooth replacement is why these treatment plans aren’t covered by their dental insurance plans. While most dental benefit plans don’t cover the costs of the implants or their surgical placement, they do provide coverage for other aspects of treatment including preparatory procedures and replacement teeth. Our team members will maximize this coverage to help you offset the costs of dental care. We also work with third party financiers to offer low and no interest payment plans to allow patients to split the cost of implant tooth replacement over several smaller payments.
