- Pre-op care
- Post-op care
- Office visits
- The abutment (part that connects the implant to the crown)
- The crown
- Cost of tooth and root extraction
These additional costs are $1,500 – $2,000. This means that a single dental implant can cost anywhere from $3,000 – $4,800
We realize that you are probably freaking out after reading how much a single implant can cost. Don’t freak out! There is some good news. Most dental insurance providers will cover a portion of the dental implant costs. You will still have to save some money for the implant procedure because insurance will not cover the entire cost.
Also, to make things more affordable many dental offices provide payment plants. These payment plants are broken up into affordable monthly installments.
We know that getting dental implants was probably not part of your financial plan, but there are ways to make it affordable. The best thing is to ask your dentist for a full break down of all of the costs. Then ask your insurance carrier what will be covered. This way you will know how much you will owe out of pocket.
