Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants – Brandon, SD

Invest in a Complete Smile Today!

You’re ready to take the first step to a complete smile using dental implants, but we understand you’re concerned about their price. It’s no secret they cost more than traditional treatments upfront, but they are actually more affordable long-term. Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to determine how much you will pay for your new smile without first having a consultation. We provide you with a personalized estimate for each phase of your treatment and discuss your payment options to turn your dream smile into a reality.

Types of Dental Implants

There isn’t a pre-established price for dental implants because the amount you pay is determined by your specific treatment plan. There are various aspects we consider when estimating the cost of your procedure, such as the number of teeth you’re replacing. On average, you can expect to pay more if you need to treat multiple teeth. You’ll need to pay for each post, the abutments, and the restoration.

What are the Stages of Dental Implant Treatment?

The process to rebuild your smile will take several months when choosing dental implants. Each phase of your plan features separate costs. As a result, you don’t need to pay the entire amount of the procedure up front. Spreading the cost out over several months can make it easier to pay for your dental implants.

Depending on your specific treatment plan, you can expect to pay for:

  • Initial Consultation: Besides the visual examination, you’ll also need X-rays and a CT Scan.
  • Additional Procedures: Many people need additional procedures before their dental implant placement, like tooth extractions, bone grafting, or a sinus lift.
  • Placement Surgery: In addition to the oral surgeon’s fees, sedation or anesthesia is needed to ensure your comfort as a specific number of posts are inserted into your jawbone.
  • Abutments & Restorations: An abutment is placed on each post to connect your custom-made restoration. Often the restoration is the most expensive aspect of the treatment.

Are Dental Implants Worth the Investment?

Although dental implants cost more upfront than traditional treatments, they are more cost-effective long-term. They have over a 95% success rate to last for decades, so you should never need to worry about having them replaced. Not to mention, they improve your oral health. The implant posts stimulate your jawbone to preserve its density and any remaining teeth. This lowers the risk of preventable issues to reduce your overall dental costs.

Does My Dental Insurance Cover Dental Implants?

Unfortunately, most dental insurances will not pay for the entire treatment, but they might cover certain aspects of it until you reach your annual limit. The amount they pay depends on your specific policy. We work on your behalf with your insurance carrier to reduce the amount you need to pay.

We accept several payment options for any remaining balance, including third-party financing with CareCredit. Our dental team works with you to find the solutions you need to keep your new smile within your budget.
