Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants have revolutionized replacement dentistry, allowing people to enjoy the look and feel of natural teeth in place of a missing tooth or multiple teeth. However, many people in Long Island have been wary of opting for implants because they are concerned about the cost.
It’s true; dental implants can be expensive. However, many things go into the cost of dental implants, and they can be an excellent value over the years to come. Even more, your dentist offers plans to help make dental implants affordable and accessible for you.
At Island Dental Associates, dental implants start at $989, and we are currently offering 48-Month, interest-free financing. Here are some factors to keep in mind when thinking about the cost and the value of dental implants.
Single Tooth Implants
You may be looking into a dental implant to replace one missing tooth. An implant provides a beautiful, natural look that makes it appear that no tooth was ever missing. You can talk, sing and eat normally. Keep in mind that each implant has a cost in itself, but the crown is another part of the implant procedure and may have a separate price. Make sure to talk to your dentist to make sure you understand the costs involved.
We want to make sure that you fully understand your dental implant procedures and we work hard to make them accessible for everyone. We’ll review your estimate before you begin so that you know what to expect.
Multiple Tooth Implants
There are different types of dental implant procedures to replace multiple teeth, whether a full-mouth implant or several teeth throughout the mouth. Your dentist will be able to provide you with a comprehensive estimate for an overall implant procedure, and prices can vary widely depending on the materials involved and the specific needs for your teeth and mouth.
Dental Implants Involve Surgery
If you’re wondering about the cost of dental implants in Long Island, it’s important to be aware that dental implants involve a surgical procedure. Multiple visits are involved, and expert oral surgeons are involved in your implants from beginning to end.
Before the implant procedure begins, you’ll need:
X-Ray or CT Scan: Important diagnostic tests that allow your dentist to ensure that your implant is precisely, correctly placed. Imaging is essential to successful implant placement.
Bone grafting: Depending on the state of your jawbone, you may need a bone graft to complete your implants, itself a skilled, complex process. (Of course, you may not need a bone graft at all.)
Tooth extraction: If you have diseased, damaged teeth that need to be removed, you will need to have an extraction before your implants can be placed.
Dental Implant Materials
Dental implants are made from high-quality, biocompatible materials. They are designed to fuse precisely with your jaw for a permanent replacement for missing teeth. Implants may be made of zirconia or titanium, depending on your needs. Each implant is carefully fabricated to meet your needs, and each is comprised of several parts: The implant, the abutment, and the crown. Costs for each of these can vary depending on the choice of material and the specifications of your unique implant.
You may be wondering if your dental insurance plan covers implants. Every insurance plan is different, and despite the vast quality of life improvement implants provide, some insurers consider them cosmetic. Other insurers may cover part of the cost. Contact your insurer to find out whether a portion of your implants may be covered.
