Does my insurance cover the cost of dental implants?

While implant coverage is not universal, more and more dental insurance companies are covering implants nowadays. Dental implants have been in use for several years and have proven to be a safe and highly successful long-term solution to tooth loss. Some medical insurance plans will also cover dental implants, depending on the cause of your tooth loss and the insurance plan details.

Our office will be happy to review your dental and medical insurance coverage to determine if dental implants are covered and what your estimated out-of-pocket cost would be under your specific plan. If your insurance plan does not cover implants, or you do not currently have dental insurance, we can explore your payment options if you decide dental implants are right for you.

Dental implants can seem expensive, but they are a good investment in the future of your mouth. Implants last many years and are the closest replacement for natural teeth currently available. Our dental and office staff understand the importance of your oral health and will work together with your insurance company to help you choose the best option for your specific needs. Call today to schedule an appointment and determine if your insurance will help cover the cost of dental implants.
