Are implants covered by dental insurance?
Created on February 28, 2022
Dental implants are a popular choice for patients who are interested in replacing one or more teeth in a long-lasting manner. However, many patients are unsure if they should pursue dental implants due to the cost. While dental implants are more expensive than alternative solutions including dental bridges and dentures, they are a great investment in the smile regardless due to their longevity. At Taylor Street Dental, we understand that many Springfield, MA area patients might be reluctant to ask about implants if their dental insurance doesn’t cover them. Drs. Peck, Homsi, Tyra, and Seo are here to educate patients on how to make dental implants affordable.
Are dental implants covered by my dental insurance?
Many patients love the idea of a permanent tooth replacement, but are leery about the unexpected costs of such treatments. During an evaluation, patients will find out if they are a viable candidate for implants before moving forward to discuss cost. Our friendly front office team has knowledge in managing dental insurance plans and getting patient the benefits they deserve. We encourage patients to speak to their dental insurance company about what is and is not included when it comes to dental work. Coverage for your dental implant may vary depending on the annual limit of your insurance policy, the type of policy you have, and the specific provider and plan information to determine if benefits can be provided.
Financing dental implants
Patients who have little to no coverage for dental implants can still find ways to obtain them. Our office is pleased to offer specialized financing plans for patients who want to arrange payments for their implants over time. This allows patients to get the restoration they really want while spreading the payments out over several months or years. We want dental implants to be attainable to everyone who wants them!
