Cost of Dental Implants - Merrimack, NH

How Much Are They?

If we ask our patients why they think people avoid visiting the dentist, the majority would say either dental phobia or lack of time. These are both big factors that affect people’s dedication to keeping up with their dental visits, but according to a dental insurance poll, cost is actually the number one factor that deters patients from seeking the care they need.

One of the priciest dentistry services we provide is dental implants. This tooth replacement option does carry a higher price tag than some other restoration options, but they are also longer lasting and dramatically improve oral health and function. If you’re interested in replacing a single tooth or a complete row of teeth, call Dental Designs of New England to schedule an implant consultation today. We’ll walk you through every step of the process and help you budget for the costs associated with this treatment.

Cost of Implants & Surgical Placement

Getting dental implants involves a multiphase process, and the majority of the cost of this treatment is the price of the dental implant posts and their surgical implantation. The cost of your implants will depend in large part on the type of implant needed, the material used, and the position of your missing tooth.

Unfortunately, most dental insurance plans do not offer coverage for implant posts or their placement. However, other factors associated with the implant procedure may receive some dental insurance coverage.

Factors Associated with Dental Implant Cost

In addition to the price of your dental implant posts and their placement, other factors that can influence the cost of dental implants include:

  • Preparation – Prior to the placement of implants, patients may be in need of preparatory procedures, including a tooth extraction and tissue grafts. Part of the costs of these procedures may be covered by your dental insurance plan.
  • Sedation – Many patients choose to use dental sedation to stay relaxed and free from pain during their dental implant process. Depending on the type of sedatives we use and your individual plan, we may be able to use your dental or medical insurance to offset the cost of sedation.
  • Restoration – The replacement tooth or teeth will also impact your overall treatment cost. In most cases, your dental insurance plan will provide the same coverage for an implant-retained crown, bridge, or denture that you would receive for a traditional restoration.

Making Dental Implants Affordable

When it comes to making dental care affordable, our Merrimack dentist and team go above and beyond to help our patients. We process and file dental insurance claims, offer an in-office savings plan, and work with third party financiers to provide low-to-no interest payment plans.

If you’re interested in getting dental implants, we’ll start by discussing the costs and potential insurance benefits of each step of your procedure. We can also split the cost over the course of your treatment, charging for each service on the day it’s provided rather than collecting the entire price upfront. And, for those patients who want to spread the price of their treatment out over several months or years, we work with CareCredit and Wells Fargo Health Advantage to provide qualified patients with low-to-no interest financing plans.
