Lancaster Dental Implant Costs
The cost of dental care is one of the leading reasons patients give for avoiding their necessary dentistry services. At Lancaster Family Smiles, we want the care our patients need to fit their budgets. We are always happy to process and file dental insurance claims to help offset the out of pocket costs of dental care. Unfortunately, dental implant tooth replacement, one of the best restoration options, isn’t covered by most insurance plans. If you need to replace one or more missing teeth, dental implants may be the right solution to meet your needs, and our skilled dentist, Dr. Mahima Gupta, and her dedicated Lancaster dentistry team will work with you to make the cost of dental implants affordable. As a fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Gupta has advanced training and experience in providing safe, effective dental implant placement, and she has worked with numerous patients to budget for the cost of dental care. On this page, we’ll review some of the factors that impact the cost of dental implant tooth replacement plans, but the only way to receive complete pricing information is to call Lancaster Family Smiles to schedule a tooth replacement consultation. During a consultation appointment, we’ll review your smile, discuss your tooth replacement options, carefully explain the pricing of every step of treatment, and help you make the right choice to restore your unique smile.
How Much do Dental Implant Posts Cost?
The dental implant posts themselves can cost between $500 and $3000 depending on a number of variables, including the size of the implant, material used, and the manufacturer.
What Other Variables Affect Dental Implant Tooth Replacement Cost?
In addition to the cost of the dental implants and their surgical implantation, you’ll need to keep the following in mind:
- Preparatory tooth extractions, tissue grafts, and other treatments
- Dental sedation to ensure complete comfort
- The replacement crown, bridge, partial, or full denture
Can I Use My Dental Insurance Coverage?
Dental implants themselves are not usually covered by insurance policies, but other aspects of your treatment will be. The preparatory services, dental sedation, and replacement teeth will likely all receive some benefit coverage.
How Can Lancaster Family Smiles Help Me Fit Implants into My Budget?
Our team will maximize your dental insurance coverage whenever possible. We also offer low and no interest financing through CareCredit. We will bill for each part of the dental implant tooth replacement process in order to help patients budget for their care over the entire process of restoration rather than paying for the entire restoration plan all at once.
Why is Dental Implant Tooth Replacement Worth the Price?
Many patients wonder why dental implant tooth replacement is worth their initial investment of time and money. There are a number of benefits that make dental implants worth the cost, including:
- Longevity – traditional tooth replacement options need to be replaced every five to ten years, but implant supported replacement teeth can last two decades or longer with proper care.
- Stability – implant supported restorations feel and function much more like natural teeth, so patients can speak, chew, and smile with complete confidence.
- Natural appearance – because dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth, patients have natural functioning smiles, but they also have smiles that look flawless.
