Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Dental Implants?
Dental implants can be expensive, and the price fluctuates and differs for everyone. For a single tooth procedure, you can pay between $1,500 to $6000. For multiple teeth, the expense can range from $1500 to more than $50,000. Dental implants are an expensive option, but they are a worthwhile investment in yourself.

Deals are always available on Bay Dental Family Dentistry and Orthodontics website under their special pricing for non-insured and self-pay patients’ sections. With us, patients pay less and feel better.
There are 3 types of dental implants that you may pick from including endosteal, subperiosteal, and zygomatic. Endosteal is the most secure and popular form of dental implant followed by subperiosteal, and lastly zygomatic. Zygomatic is the most complex form of dental implant and is not commonly used. Endosteal implants are suitable for most patients but demand a healthy jawbone to ensure proper fitting. Endosteal involves placeholder posts put into the jaw containing false teeth. Following the procedure, there is a healing period after which the false teeth are fit in with the other teeth and placed onto the post.
Subperiosteal implants are the primary alternative to endosteal implants. Rather than fixing the implants to the jawbone, this procedure rests on top of the bone and under the gum. Subperiosteal implants are a great option for people who lack jawbone health for an endosteal implant, or those wishing to avoid more intensive surgery to add bone.
Zygomatic implants involve a complex procedure and are only recommended for those lacking jawbone strength for alternative procedures. The cheekbone houses zygomatic implants rather than the jawbone.
Your dental specialist may suggest dental inserts as the best solution for supplanting lost teeth because of the many advantages they offer. The timetable for dental inserts after a tooth extraction fluctuates from one patient to another, most commonly it lasts 2-3 months but there are exceptions.
Sometimes, it is feasible to put a dental embed just after an extraction. This choice may be accessible to you assuming you are without gum sickness, and you have a sound jawbone.
A dental implant may appear to be a superfluous cost for those thinking that there are less expensive, elective options accessible. Nonetheless, this procedure leads to enhanced appearance of healthy teeth. These advantages make it worth considering and anticipating. Costs include all components of dental implants from the surgery for placement to the crown itself.
