Dental implants are considered the best way to replace missing teeth, but they can be expensive. Typical costs for dental implants can range from $1500 to $6000, depending on a number of factors such as the complexity of your case, how many missing teeth you have, and the quality of the materials used.Woman holding dental model of teeth showing how dental implant replaces the tooth root

We know that the cost of dental implants can be off-putting for many patients, but over time they are a great investment. Dental implants can last for a lifetime without needing to be replaced, and the benefits they impart are much greater than adhesive dentures.

If you are interested in dental implants but unsure if you can shoulder the expense, please come visit Highpoint Dental Care for a complimentary consultation. We can examine your teeth, gums, and jaw and let you know if dental implants are a good option, and we can go over financial options to help make dental implants affordable.

How to Afford Dental Implants

Unfortunately, dental implants are rarely covered by insurance. However, we will always call to see if your plan will cover any part of your dental treatment plan, and we will let you know honestly how much you can expect to pay up front.

If your dental implants are not covered by insurance, there are other payment options available. We accept CareCredit dental financing plans to help our patients afford the best care possible. Using a CareCredit financing plan provides the following benefits:

  • Pay over time, to minimize impact on your budget and finances
  • 0% APR for qualified candidates
  • Different payment amounts and schedules to fit every budget

We believe that everyone deserves the best dental care, which is why we offer these payment plans. Your oral health is important to both your general health and your appearance, and we want to help you obtain the healthiest, most attractive smile possible.

Dental Implants vs Adhesive Dentures

dental implantsYou may wonder if dental implants are worth the high cost. While ultimately it’s up to the individual patient to decide if they think implants are worth it, most dentists strongly encourage dental implants over traditional adhesive dentures for the following reasons:

  • Implants are the only treatment that actually replace missing tooth roots
  • The tooth root is a vital part of your jaw’s structure, and when they are missing, the jaw loses bone
  • Dental implants are more comfortable and stable than adhesive dentures

Dental implants provide necessary structure to the jaw that prevents jaw collapse. In addition, dental implants allow you to speak and eat comfortably, with no fear of dentures popping out or shifting position.

Not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants, though. If you are not a good candidate for implants, you should still get a bridge or dentures, depending on the extent of your tooth loss. Although these treatments cannot replace the tooth root, they can at least replace the crown of the tooth and help keep your smile straight and healthy.
