Cost of Dental Implants – North Grafton, MA
Investing in the Future of Your Smile
Dental work often requires evaluating your budget to determine what you can afford and what you cannot. While your heart may be set on a particular treatment, your bank account might have you rethinking your decision. Unfortunately, this mindset keeps many people from pursuing solutions that are actually much more cost-effective in the long run. While it is true that a dental implant is more costly upfront, its benefits and capabilities far exceed more traditional options that often result in frequent replacements along the way. Let the team at Theroux Dental Associates explain how dental implants are a possible solution for anyone looking to restore their smile. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
Types of Dental Implants
One of the most critical factors in determining the cost of your dental implant treatment is determining what type of restoration you will need. This will dictate how many implants you will need to achieve the results you desire.
- Single Tooth – As the cheapest option of the three, our team will use a single titanium implant, zirconia or metal abutment, and customized dental crown to replicate your natural tooth and restore your smile.
- Multiple Teeth – Slightly higher in cost than a single implant, an implant bridge requires the use of two dental implants, two metal abutments, and fusing multiple dental crowns to create a customized bridge.
- All Teeth – As the most expensive solution, an implant-retained denture will be secured to at least 4 dental implants (or up to 6). When compared to traditional dentures, the upfront cost is higher, but this type of restoration proves much more cost-effective because of its longevity.
What Are the Stages of Dental Implant Treatment?
Dental implant placement requires several months to complete. You will be required to maintain regular appointments with our dental team and follow detailed instructions to not only ensure successful healing but also prevent any delays along the way.
From the initial consultation to the implant surgery to the placement of your abutments and the securing of your final restoration, each stage incurs its own fee. Not to mention, if you require a pre-implant dental work (i.e. bone graft, tooth extraction), this will add to the overall cost of your treatment as well as the timeline for achieving a fully restored smile.
Are Dental Implants Worth the Investment?
Once you receive your dental implants, you will not only discover they are worth the wait, but they’re also worth the investment. While you can opt for traditional solutions (i.e. fixed bridge, dentures), you may spend more time traveling back and forth to the dentist’s office for realignments and adjustments. You will also spend far more money on replacement restorations. With dental implants, you can enjoy a permanent solution that can last decades or longer with proper maintenance and improved oral health.
Does My Dental Insurance Cover Dental Implants?
Some dental insurance companies have yet to incorporate dental implants as part of their benefits coverage, so if you are one of the many who will not receive any financial reprieve from your insurance company, don’t worry. Our team at Theroux Dental Associates is here to help you move forward with your implant placement while offering available financing options to help you stay within your budget.
As a partner with CareCredit, a third-party financier that offers low and no interest payment plans, you can break up the cost of your treatment to better manage your budget.
