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?

The average range of an implant-supported arch at Aspen Dental is between $6,500 - $8,000.¹ But your personalized care plan can determine the exact cost of your procedure. Factors include: How many dental implants you need, the type of dental implants, the type of prosthetic teeth used, how many teeth need replacing, and if you need extractions prior to your implants
¹Price 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.

When dental insurance covers implants (and when it may not)

Some insurance policies list dental implants as cosmetic procedures, which limits coverage options. But there can be cases when dental insurance picks up a portion of your procedure, like the post and abutment placement—which can make up for 45% of the total cost.

Insurance coverage available for implants varies depending on the need for treatment. Here are some instances, starting from most likely on left to least likely on the right:

Causing medical issues
Trauma to teeth
