The Most Common Dental Emergencies
There are many different types of dental emergencies. Some come about suddenly due to an injury or accident, while others develop slowly over time until they’ve become unbearable. No matter which category your situation falls into, our talented team is ready and able to help. Even if you’re unsure if you need urgent treatment, give us a call so we can help you determine what to do next. Below, you’ll find some of the most common dental emergencies we treat.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
To find out the price of your dental implant treatment, we’ll need to first examine your mouth and confirm several cost-determining factors. This includes the number of implants you need placed and any specific treatments you have to complete before surgery can be performed. Keep in mind that while dental implants are more expensive on average, you truly get what you pay for in terms of your tooth replacement. At your initial consultation, we’ll discuss all of these details with you and walk you through a breakdown of the price of treatment.
Preliminary Treatments & Dental Implant Surgery
It’s relatively common for patients (especially older folks) to need preparatory treatments prior to dental implant surgery. For example, gum disease therapy or tooth extractions could be necessary to ensure a safe implant placement. This can increase the overall cost of your care. Your surgery can also have its own unique costs depending on the number of implants being placed and the amount of anesthesia needed. Dr. Wheeler keeps the entire process in-house, so your fees should be more compact and convenient overall compared to traveling to an implant surgeon offsite.
The Parts of Your Dental Implant
The more implants you need to have placed, the more materials we’ll need. This includes not just the titanium posts themselves, but the abutments that go inside of them as well. Keep in mind that there are also many different types of dental implants from different manufacturers that can fluctuate in cost. We’re happy to break down the specific implants we use, why we use them, and why you can feel confident about your upcoming surgery.
Final Dental Implant Restoration
When more dental implants are needed, a more complex restoration is needed as well. For example, a series of implants would pair with an implant denture, a restoration that requires more materials and time to design and fabricate. In comparison, a single implant only needs a dedicated crown, making this portion of your treatment substantially cheaper. No matter what restoration you receive, you can expect your replacement tooth to be durable, long-lasting, and incredibly lifelike.
Does My Dental Insurance Cover Dental Implants?
In most cases, dental insurance will not cover the cost of dental implants. There are a few exceptions, however, where insurance could cover portions of specific phases of treatment. For example, you may receive coverage for treatments required ahead of implant surgery, like tooth extractions or gum disease therapy. The restoration can also receive coverage in certain cases. Keep in mind that every plan varies and coverage likely applies only for a certain percentage and rarely the entire cost of treatment.
Making Dental Implants Affordable
Those without dental insurance can still make their tooth replacement affordable through alternative financing options. For example, you may want to look into third-party options like CareCredit, a service that allows you to pay for care in monthly installments instead of one lump sum. These payment plans also come with little to no interest attached, making it even easier to fit into your budget. Our office also provides special offers on certain dental services, including a $999 special for dental implant posts.
