Dental implants are fast becoming the most recommend tooth replacement option available. Unlike other forms of tooth replacement that only restore the visible parts of the smile, implant posts are inserted below the gums where they mimic the healthy function of natural tooth roots, giving patients the healthy function and stability they need. However, implant supported restorations do come with a higher price tag than other restoration options. That means patients need to consider shopping around for the best price options for their implant supported tooth replacement plans. In this post, we’ll discuss some of the things to consider when looking for the most affordable dental implant tooth replacement options to put the smile back on your face without breaking the bank.
1 – Don’t Feel Guilty About Comparison Shopping
Many patients feel like they need to stick with their family dentist or go to whatever specialist they’re referred to. No dentist will be insulted if you ask to receive a second opinion for an advanced treatment like implant tooth replacement. Best of all, many dentists and dental specialists offer free consultations or second opinions, so call around and make sure you feel comfortable with the price you’re quoted.
2 – Payment for Each Step of the Process
Most dental offices will charge for each part of treatment individually. This can help you budget in advance for each step of the process rather than getting one big bill all at once. Other offices may even offer a monthly payment plan based on the total estimated cost of treatment. Make sure you ask about how the office bills for these treatments.
3 – Dental Insurance Coverage
While the cost of dental implants and their surgical placement is not typically covered by your dental benefit plan, other aspects of treatment will be. For instance, the replacement tooth or dental prosthetic usually receives the same percentage of dental insurance coverage as traditional dental crowns, bridges, and dentures.
4 – Financing Options
Many dental offices work with third party financiers like CareCredit to provide low or no interest payment plans. This is a great option to spread out the cost of your implant tooth replacement plan over several monthly installments without racking up big interest penalties on a personal credit card.
