Why are Dental Implants so Expensive?

Dental implants are the longest-lasting, most reliable, and most effective tooth-replacement option. They are also the most expensive.

Several things impact the cost of dental implants:

  • The type of implant being used
  • The number of implants being placed
  • The type of restorations being used

In some cases, bone grafting is needed to improve the density of the jaw and provide sufficient support for the implant. Additional surgeries will impact the cost of dental implants as well.

Are Dental Implants Worth It?

When you lose a tooth, you also lose its root. The root of the tooth holds it in place but also keeps minerals in that area of the jaw. No root means no minerals, which can allow your jaw to shrink and eventually collapse around the missing tooth. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that prevents this eventuality.

In addition to being the only tooth replacement that can prevent jaw collapse, dental implants are able to:

  • Restore complete strength and function
  • Create a natural-looking and functioning smile
  • Last for a lifetime with proper care

What’s more, unlike dentures or dental bridges, dental implants will not:

  • Slip, come loose, or fall out
  • Impact the strength of adjacent teeth
  • Require replacement every few years

Unfortunately, despite their strength and reliability, many insurance companies still refuse to pay for dental implants

Can Implants be Financed?

While most insurance companies will not pay for dental implants, there are many options for patients who demand the best. This includes patient financing through our partners at CareCredit®.

CareCredit® offers several payment options, including promotional plans with 0% APR or low and fixed monthly rates, that can help make financing dental implants much more manageable. During your initial consultation, we will discuss all payment options to help you select the best option.
