It’s no secret that dental implants are the number one replacement option for missing or damaged teeth. However, one of the downsides to them is the price. The implant process is very intricate and time-consuming, and the materials required are top of the line to ensure the best results. A surgical procedure and many trips to the dentist are required. Then you have to factor in the cost of the dental restoration and it’s easy to understand why the price tag is so high.
While it is hard not to focus on the cost, it is very important to understand that this decision will affect many facets of your life. Dental implants should be considered an investment in your oral health, overall health, and quality of life. It’s hard to put a price tag on that.
However, Silver Spring, MD dentist Dr. David Rever wants his patients to be completely informed about the cost of dental implants. His incredible dental staff are very helpful and will aid in navigating through the insurance, finance, and payment processes.
Dental Implant Cost
The total dental implant treatment cost will vary from patient to patient. Each person will have unique circumstances that will affect the bottom line. To give you an accurate estimate on treatment, Dr. Rever will need to complete a full mouth examination and thoroughly review your medical history. Many things will need to be considered such as:
- Where are the missing or damaged located in the mouth?
- What size and type of dental implants will be required to secure the dental restoration?
- How many implants will be required to secure the restoration?
- Is a bone graft necessary to build up the bone mass?
- Will damaged teeth need to be extracted?
- Is gum disease present? If so, that will require additional treatment.
- Will your insurance cover any portion of the treatment?
Dr. Rever and his staff will put together a treatment plan which will help us give you an accurate estimate. A single tooth replaced by an implant secured crown can cost up to $5,000. A full mouth implant restoration can cost several tens of thousands of dollars.
Dr. Rever accepts most dental insurances however, not many plans will cover dental implants. They may, however, partially cover the dental restoration. We encourage you to reach out to your provider to learn more about what is and is not covered. We will electronically file your claim to maximize your benefits and give you an estimate of the amount you are responsible for paying.
