I Need a Dental Implant, but I'm Not Sure I Can Afford It

Dental implants are a popular choice for restoring missing teeth, but the cost of implants can be a deciding factor in whether you ultimately choose implants or another solution.

Dental implants are an investment in your oral health, and they provide many benefits. Implants support your jawbone, are durable and long-lasting, and they’re aesthetically pleasing. But they cost more than dentures and bridges. 

That said, the cost doesn’t have to keep you from getting your dream smile.

Determine your actual costs

When it comes to dental implants, there are many costs to take into consideration. They include pre- and post-operative care, office visits, dental imaging such as X-rays, anesthesia, the dental crown, the titanium post, and the costs of the implant surgery itself. 

These aren’t the only variables, though. Your overall dental implant costs are affected by:

These factors can be discussed during your consultation. 

Making dental implants affordable

Once you know how many implants you need (as well as any other necessary procedures), check with your insurance carrier to see if any portion of your surgery is covered. Not all insurance carriers cover all aspects of dental implant surgery, but they may cover a portion of it.

Depending on how much is covered, this could reduce your out-of-pocket costs enough for you to move forward with the implant. 

Once you’ve checked with your insurance carrier, you have several ways to finance your implant, including cash, check, major credit cards, and health care financing through CareCredit. CareCredit is a health care credit card that allows you to pay for out-of-pocket expenses.

At Chelsea Dental Aesthetics, we also offer the following options to make dental implants even more affordable:
