It can be difficult to put a number on the cost of dental implants. Part of the reason for this is due to the wide range of restorative options.
The cost of having a single-tooth dental implant with an abutment and crown can cost up to $6,000. If more than one implant needs to be done and can be done simultaneously, then the cost of each implant can cost less. If there are adjacent teeth missing, an implant-supported bridge may be used instead of single-tooth implants. If most of the teeth on an arch are missing, a denture supported by an implant could be used. With so many variables for restoration, the costs can be difficult to predict without consolation.
Another factor to consider in the cost of dental implants is the materials that are being used. Implants and other parts needed for restoration can use different materials. You will also need to consider other factors that are part of the process which can include bone grafts, other extractions, or even a sinus lift. If other forms of restoration are needed to complete the procedure, this will add to the cost, as well.
Insurance will often cover dental implants. But, each dental plan is different and you will need to contact your insurance provider to find out what they will cover. Some insurance plans will pay a portion and some will pay 100%.
If you require dental implants because of an accident or trauma, your medical insurance may pay for what you need.
Since costs will vary depending on what you need, having the dentist’s office send a request to your insurance company about coverage will give you the information you need. They will inform you how much will be covered.
You will need to check with your insurance provider to find out if they cover implants, including full-mouth implants. If your provider does cover implants you will want to make a deeper investigation into the following aspects:
• Does your insurance company have an annual cap on payouts? If you are close to the end of the year and have used dental benefits during the year, you will need to pay anything above the annual cap.
• You will need to check with your insurance company about their pre-existing policy if your tooth or teeth were missing before you got coverage. Many insurance companies will not cover pre-existing conditions.
• What caused the need for a full-mouth implant? If your need for this is due to an accident or other health event, your medical insurance may be whom you need to talk to.
You can expect to pay from $900 to $6,000 for a single dental implant. This can depend on factors like the kind of implant, who is doing the work, the material used for the implant, and any additional work that needs to be done to complete the procedure.
The cost of an implant has many factors and this is why a range is given to the cost of one. Some of the various factors contributing to cost are:
• Cost of the dental exam and 3D imaging
• Extraction of the problem teeth, if needed
• Installation of dental implant
• Placement of abutment hardware
• Making of the dental crown
• Placing of the crown
