An incomplete smile significantly impacts your self-esteem and quality of life. Now, you can enjoy the next best thing to your natural teeth with dental implants. They allow you to replace both the root and the crown of a tooth using a solution that can last for a lifetime. At Lakeside Daytona Dentist, we understand you are concerned about the cost of dental implants in Daytona Beach, but you have nothing to fear. There are several ways to keep your treatment affordable to invest in your smile.
There is no easy answer to how much you can expect to pay for dental implants without first scheduling a consultation. The amount you pay is determined by your individual treatment plan. There are several factors that influence the cost, such as:
You need a consultation with your dentist in Daytona Beach to ensure you are a candidate for dental implants. Digital x-rays and a CT scan are taken during your appointment to assess the health of your jawbone and to determine the precise location for the placement of your posts.
Placing your implant posts into your jawbone requires an oral surgery. Sedation or anesthesia is used to provide a pain-free and comfortable treatment.
Besides the oral surgeon’s fees, you need to pay for the number of implants. The material and type of post used can affect the cost.
After your jawbone fuses to the posts, abutments are placed on them to allow custom-made restorations to be attached. You need to pay for each fixture, as well as the cost of the restorations. Often, this is the most expensive aspect of the procedure. The cost varies depending on how many teeth you are replacing.
Dental implants cost more upfront than conventional treatments, like a denture, but they are more affordable long-term. They are designed to last for a lifetime, so you will never need to worry about having them replaced. There are several options to lower the amount you need to pay, such as:
Your dental insurance will not cover the entire procedure, but it can be used to pay for certain aspects of your treatment after you pay your yearly deductible. Depending on your policy, it can lower the cost of the CT scan, anesthesia, and restorations until you reach your annual limit. We work on your behalf with your insurance company to maximize the value of your policy to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket.
We accept third-party financing to cover any remaining balance. Based on your credit’s approval, you are given the funds you need through CareCredit. You then repay the balance using a payment plan that accommodates your budget.
During your consultation, we provide you with a personal estimate and discuss the costs associated with each phase of your treatment. We work with you to find a solution to keep your new smile affordable. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation for dental implants.
