Costs of implant treatment - Dental Implants Net


Implant treatment is hardly covered by medical insurance.
Dental implant fees will vary from dentist to dentist and the market price ranges between about $2000 and $4500 per implant.
For multiple missing teeth, differences from several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars in costs of implant treatment can occur depending on the number of implant bodies to be placed and the design of the superstructure.
As the implant design suitable to an individual varies depending on the conditions of the teeth and jaws, the most suitable treatment plan should be determined by consulting with a dentist before beginning treatment.

Details of the treatment costs required

The details of the implant treatment costs are commonly as follows:

The above costs are required, but fee structures vary among dental clinics. However, if augmentation of the bone and gum is needed for placement of implants, this will entail extra cost.

Comparison with therapeutic modalities covered by insurance

Bridge treatment is included as a therapeutic modality covered by insurance. However, as the bridge must be remade every several years and both teeth adjacent to the missing tooth must be cut, bridge treatment is not always better for teeth in the long term.
In some rates of insurance applicable to bridge treatment, implant and bridge treatments may be almost equivalent in price.

Payment methods

The bill can be paid in cash, personal check, credit card or dental loan.

Implant treatment and dental loan

For example, with a cost of $3000 per implant, the price of three implants is $9000.
There will be few people who can pay such a high cost of treatment in cash.
Thus, financing of “dental loan” can be applied.
Application of the dental loan will allow treatment with lower monthly payment.

Dental loan

Various credit sales firms cover dental loans, in which the firm temporally pays the costs of dental treatment for the patient, and then the patient pays the debt to the credit sales firm in installments.
The dental loan plan right for an individual should be made with affordable monthly repayments.

Dental loan and credit card

The major difference between a dental loan and credit card payment is the interest rate.
Divided or revolving repayment by credit card usually has a high interest rate. Therefore, if the number of divided repayments is many, a dental loan is much less of the burden for repayment than using a credit card. As a loan can be applied for without a credit card, please apply for a loan at the dental clinic.
