If you have suffered from adult tooth loss, the only permanent solution for the problem is dental implants. Many of our patients find dental implants to be an appealing treatment option, but worry that they will not be able to afford the cost of the procedure. Drs. Alex and Jason Hecht, talented Staten Island cosmetic dentists, keep dental implant costs as low as possible for their patients.
Dental implants are a permanent replacement for tooth loss or for teeth that are so damaged that extraction is required. A dental implant is surgically placed in the jawbone. As false tooth roots, they are able to secure artificial teeth; most commonly dental crowns or permanent dentures. Dental implants are a secure solution that look and feel just like a patient’s natural teeth. They are also easy to care for and can last a lifetime.
Costs of Dental Implants
As with all dental procedures, there are many variables that will affect the cost of dental implants. Some of the factors that determine the cost include where you live, who your dentist is, and the type of implant that is used. At some dental practices, a single dental implant can cost up to $3,000. If you are in need of full mouth reconstruction, the cost could be several thousand dollars; dental insurance may curb the cost of treatment depending on the patient's coverage.
Our dentists believe that, for our patients in Staten Island, dental implants should be an option for all; we offer mini-dental implants at a more affordable price. Mini-dental implants give patients the same secure and permanent results at a lower cost. We are able to provide this service at an affordable price by completing the entire process in our office. From any necessary tooth extraction to surgical placement, we can take care of you. This saves you from paying for additional services or dental appointments. With these advantages, we are able to offer mini-dental implants starting at $6,000 per jaw. For replacement of teeth in the upper and lower jaw, you could end up paying half what you would pay elsewhere.
Financing Dental Implants
Even with these reduced costs, we understand that dental implants are a great expense. You should always speak to your insurance company before treatment to see if any of the costs will be covered. Do not be deterred from treatment if you find that you will need to cover the majority of the expenses. There are financing options to consider. There are many third party companies that offer personal loans or credit cards to cover the cost of medical procedures. Be prepared to shop around and ask questions so that you can be sure you are getting an interest rate and monthly payment plan that you are comfortable with.
