Cost of Dental Implants – Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
Invest in Your Oral Health and Confidence
When we recommend that patients get dental implants in Ponte Vedra Beach to replace their missing teeth, one of the first questions they usually ask is, “How much does it cost?” The answer varies from patient to patient. On this page, we will explain some of the factors that influence dental implant cost, why they are a worthwhile investment, and what resources may be available to help you fit them into your budget.
Types of Dental Implants
It is important to understand that no two dental implant cases are exactly alike. Patients who are missing a single tooth need just one dental implant. Logically, that costs less than using dental implants to replace an entire arch of lost teeth — or to perform full mouth reconstruction. Also, there are various dental implant techniques that can have a bearing on price. During your consultation, your dentist will begin to design your custom treatment plan, and our team will provide you with a cost estimate. Feel free to ask any questions you may have about the price information we give you.
What Are the Stages of Dental Implant Treatment?
Dental implant treatment takes place across multiple stages, each of which has its own unique price. Because some stages of the process happen weeks or months apart, you will have time to plan your budget for each portion of your journey. Some of the steps in your treatment process may include:
- Your initial consultation
- Preparatory treatment, such as gum disease therapy, extractions, or bone grafting
- Your implant placement surgery
- Placement of your implant abutments (small connector pieces that will hold your new teeth in place)
- Design and placement of your implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture
Are Dental Implants Worth the Investment?
Most patients who receive dental implants would wholeheartedly agree that they are a worthwhile investment! They offer more and greater benefits than traditional forms of tooth replacement. For example, they provide an incredibly strong bite force, and they prevent the deterioration in the jawbone that often occurs after tooth loss. Plus, they have the potential to last a lifetime. Their longevity may make them a much better long-term monetary value than other tooth replacement options that have a lower upfront cost but that need to be replaced every few years, such as traditional dentures.
Does My Dental Insurance Cover Dental Implants?
Dental insurance policies vary greatly in their approach to dental implants. Some of them cover half the cost of implants, up to the amount of the plan’s annual maximum. Others do not cover the implants themselves, but they may cover preparatory treatments or the final restoration. Our team will help you navigate your insurance and get as much out of it as possible. We can also help you apply for low-interest financing through CareCredit, Community First, or Citi Health Card.
