The number and type of dental implants you need will depend on how many teeth need to be replaced. Here are some possibilities:
Your new smile will be completed in stages. This has the added benefit of being more affordable because you’ll pay for each stage separately instead of all at once. Here are the basic steps of the implant process:
Yes! While it’s true that dental implants cost more in the beginning than traditional bridges and dentures, they’re more affordable in long-run. Traditional dentures need to be regularly maintained and also replaced every 5-8 years, which comes with added costs. And traditional bridges only last an average of 10-15 years. With good oral hygiene and regular checkups, implants can last a lifetime.
In addition to being more cost-effective over many years, implants look, feel, and function more like natural teeth than anything else, giving you the benefit of both quality and quantity. And since implants preserve your jawbone and facial structure, your overall self-confidence will be greater as well.
Generally, dental insurance won’t pay for implants themselves, but it may offer partial coverage for the associated procedures such as extractions, X-rays, exams, etc. To make implants as accessible as possible, we accept many different insurance plans and also offer payment options such as third-party financing with CareCredit. With this “healthcare credit card,” you can break up your cost into smaller monthly payments to make it more affordable.
