Cost of Dental Implants – Tukwila, WA
An Investment in Your Oral Health and Confidence
Many patients are excited about the prospect of dental implants. After all, they are the next best thing to natural teeth! However, some hesitate to commit when they find out how much the treatment costs. On this page, we’ll discuss factors that contribute to the cost of dental implants, why they are worth the investment, and how you may be able to afford them.
Types of Dental Implants
One of the biggest factors that contributes to dental implant cost is the exact nature of your procedure. Every patient is a little different. It stands to reason that if you just require a single dental implant with a single crown, you will pay less than someone who is looking to replace an entire arch of missing teeth.
In some cases, a patient might be a viable candidate for more than one implant procedure. For example, you might be able to choose All-on-4 dental implants or a traditional full, implant-supported bridge to replace an arch of lost teeth. Our team will candidly disclose the costs associated with each of your treatment options.
What Are the Stages of Dental Implant Treatment?
Dental implant treatment has several stages:
- Consultation and treatment planning. Timmerman will determine if you are a candidate for implants and design a treatment plan for you.
- Some patients require a bone graft or gum disease treatment before they are eligible to receive dental implants.
- Implant placement. The implants get inserted into your jawbone at precise locations.
- A crown, bridge, or denture is placed on top of your implants.
You only have to pay for each stage of treatment as it occurs, and they usually take place weeks or months apart. You will therefore have time to plan your budget for each step of your tooth replacement journey.
Are Dental Implants Worth the Investment?
In a word, yes. Dental implants are worth the investment because they provide so many benefits, including a strong bite force, outstanding aesthetics, and bone health benefits. They also last longer than alternative options. In fact, their ability to stand the test of time may make them a better long-term value than prosthetics with a lower upfront cost that need to be replaced every few years.
Does My Dental Insurance Cover Dental Implants?
You will need to check the details of your policy to find out whether it covers dental implants. Even if it does not cover the implants themselves, it might cover your restoration or a portion of your preparatory treatment. Also, keep in mind that if your insurance does not cover a large portion of the cost of dental implants, you may be able to take advantage of low-interest financing.
