Affording Implants

Your plan for dental implants

Determining if your dental insurance covers implants can be a deciding factor in the future of your treatment. We can guide you through it.

Exploring dental insurance that covers implants

No two smiles are alike, and neither are many insurance plans. That’s why it’s important to talk to your provider to see if your dental insurance covers implants once you decide they’re right for you.

What influences dental implants cost?

*Price estimate includes fees for implant placement, prosthetic and attachments only. Additional services may be required.

Can dental insurance cover implants immediately?

Check your policy to see if your dental insurance covers implants. If it does cover a portion, be sure you haven’t met your annual maximum, which is the amount your insurance plan will pay for dental care in a year. Additionally, any pre-existing conditions, like missing teeth prior to coverage, may impact your insurance usability.
