Dental implants are the closest restorations available to your natural teeth. They are a long-lasting investment in your overall health and may help to prevent the need for further advanced dental care. The initial cost of dental implants in our Lexington, KY office may seem more costly than other tooth replacement options such as dentures. However, dental implants offer the best permanent solution for missing teeth and often require no future maintenance costs.
The Cost of Dental Implants vs. Dentures
Dentures cost significantly less than dental implants upfront, especially if you are replacing multiple missing teeth. But dentures will also need to be replaced, realigned, or rebased over time. This cost can add up depending on the wear and tear. Dental implants cost more but are a more permanent solution. If cared for properly, they will last forever.
Factors in the Cost of Dental Implants
We understand that the upfront cost of dental implant treatment can be tough to manage. We have experience in helping you get the most out of your dental insurance plan. Our Lexington, KY dental staff is here to openly discuss the specifics of all of your dental implant costs and payment options with you during your consultation.
The total cost of a dental implant procedure can vary widely, depending on several key factors:
- Number of implants being placed
- Location and size of the implant
- Need for bone grafting or additional procedures to restore health
Payment Options & Insurance
Most dental insurance companies will cover preventive dental services such as dental cleanings, routine examinations, and dental x-rays but most do not cover advanced restorative procedures like dental implants. Some dental insurance plans will partially cover the dental fabrication such as the dental crown, dental bridge, or denture.
Each of our patient’s dental insurance coverage is unique and will vary depending on the plan.
