State College Dental Implants Costs
Before you get started with your dental implant tooth replacement plan, Kevin P. Labosky, DMD and his State College dentistry team encourage you to take the time to get all the information you need to feel 100% confident before you move forward with treatment. Cost is one of the concerns many patients need to consider extensively before beginning their procedures. Every dental implant supported tooth replacement plan is as unique as the patient whose smile is being repaired, and the cost of treatment can vary dramatically. On this page, you’ll find some basic pricing information, but to get more specifics, you should call to schedule a tooth replacement consultation in our State College dentistry office.
The Price of Dental Implants
The main portion of the cost of your implant supported tooth replacement plan is the price of the implants themselves. Depending on the dental implant’s size, type, and material, the price can range between $500 and $3000 on average for a single implant post. This is before the added cost of surgically placing the dental implant. For patients who need more than one implant post, many manufacturers offer discounted rates for each additional implant post to make the overall treatment price a little lower. Unfortunately, dental insurance providers do not usually cover the cost of implants. However, you may be able to receive insurance coverage for other parts of your treatment plan.
Additional Factors Affecting the Cost of Implants
In addition to the price of the dental implant and its placement, you will also need to consider a number of other factors, including:
- Preparation – preparing your smile for implant placement and restoration may include the removal of one or more teeth as well as bone or soft tissue grafting
- Sedation – to ensure your comfort throughout surgical implant placement, preparatory treatments, and every step of the tooth replacement process you may elect to receive sedation dentistry services
- Replacement teeth – the design, crafting, and placement of your dental crown, bridge, partial, or full denture will also increase the overall cost of treatment
Helping You Budget for Dental Care
Our office provides affordable dental care for every patient, and that includes fitting the cost of implant supported tooth replacement into your budget. There are many ways we can help you budget for your treatment plan, including:
- We bill for each portion of the treatment plan on the day the service is provided rather than billing for the entire treatment plan upfront.
- We process and file dental insurance claims to maximize any available coverage.
- We are happy to work with CareCredit to provide low and no interest financing for qualified patients.
- If your benefit plan includes a flexible spending account or health savings account, you can also use these funds to cover part of your implant treatment costs.
