Dental Implants Financing: Payment Options for Advanced Dental Care
By Eugene D. Stanislaus on January 27, 2015
At Brooklyn Heights Dental®, we strive to provide every patient with excellent care. Part of this involves addressing concerns about wellness, while other times matters regarding payment options are the most pressing issues for patients. This is particularly true with dental implants, artificial tooth roots surgically placed to support bridges and dentures. Since the treatment is very effective, many patients wonder about their payment options for this treatment process. We'd like to look at these matters in brief right now.
What is the average cost of dental implants?
The average cost of dental implants can vary a fair amount from patient to patients based on a whole host of factors. Because of this, we do not think it's an ideal situation to provide an average price range or even a general average cost for dental implants in this blog.
That said, we would be more than happy to provide a customized price quote for implant dentistry treatment during a consultation at our practice. This would allow for a full price breakdown and an ability to ask questions about all of the costs involved with care.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Implant Dentistry Treatment
Some of the factors that affect the cost of implant dentistry treatment include:
- The complexity of the patient's case
- The number of dental implants required
- The need for bone grafting/augmentation prior to placing dental implants
- The need for gum grafting/augmentation prior to placing dental implants
- Special promotions unique to individual dental practices
Does my dental or medical insurance cover implant dentistry treatment?
In some cases, dental implants may be covered by health insurance, though it may depend on the nature of the tooth loss that led to the situation that a patient faces. As insurance policies vary, it's important that you check directly with your insurance provider to find out if you are eligible for coverage.
Are dental implants eligible for reimbursement through a flexible spending account (FSA)?
In a number of cases, you can use an FSA to reimburse you for the cost of implant dentistry treatment. FSA providers vary, and there may be unique requirements that have to be met in order to qualify for reimbursement. Be sure to speak with your FSA provider directly for more information.
How Monthly Dental Financing Works
Monthly financing is one common payment option that many patients use for dental procedures. These kinds of options function much like a traditional loan or credit card, with a trusted lending institution covering the implant dentistry procedure and the patient paying back the amount with monthly installments.
The Benefits of Monthly Dental Financing
Many patients find these monthly financing plans convenient and easy. Apart from putting great dental care within reach for countless patients, a number of patients appreciate the ability to budget every month and plan well ahead.
