Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Dental Implants?

Today, dental implants are widely considered to be the best way to replace missing teeth – especially when it comes to full mouth reconstructions.

There is no other existing method that is as strong, secure or as long-lasting as dental implants.

And treatments as successful and effective as this tend to come at higher prices, which means many patients look to their insurance providers to see if they are covered for the treatment.

Let’s take a look and see…

Dental implant insurance

Although this will be dependent on your insurance provider, cosmetic dentistry is not usually covered by dental insurance.

As is the case with most dental coverage plans, insurance tends not to cover implant dentistry. This is down to the argument that there are cheaper methods to replace missing teeth.

It is likely that the insurance will cover cheaper treatments like dentures or bridges.

Also, insurance companies prefer to cover 100% of preventative care costs like basic general dentistry treatments like tooth extractions, fillings and gum disease treatments.

HOWEVER, this is a general overview.

Especially more recently, there are more and more insurance plans that are beginning to include dental implants in their coverage.

This is because dental implants are beginning to gain more traction in their superiority. And as it lasts longer than any other treatment form, insurance companies are actually seeing this as a way they, and you can save money too!

Check with your provider

It’s advisable to always check with your provider and see if they might be planning to cover this in their policy in future.

Every policy is unique and is often built around you and your medical needs – so checking whether or not you are covered might be worthwhile before committing.

Example: Vitality pays a portion of the cost.

The overall cost of dental implants

There are several different types of implants and each type varies in costs.

The price will also be dependent on any additional treatment that needs to be done prior to or along with your implant procedure.

Additional procedures include bone grafts and sinus lifts.

We will work with you to carry out an analysis of your specific needs and requirements then create a treatment and payment plan suitable for you.

Prices include implant, post and crown.
