Dental implants in the Lehigh Valley provide a long-term solution to rebuild a complete smile. Although they may cost more upfront than common treatments, like a bridge and crowns, they are more affordable because they have the potential to last for a lifetime. It’s normal to have several questions about their cost, but there’s no need to worry. Dr. Salivonchik will take the time to discuss each phase of your treatment and the costs during your initial consultation. Our office will help you find the solutions you need to replace your missing teeth without breaking the bank.
Not all dental implants are the same. As a result, they all have different costs. The type of implant used will impact the price, such as if you go with a standard titanium post, a mini post, or a ceramic post. If you need more than one, such as to support a bridge or denture, you can expect the cost to increase as well.
The process to restore your smile will occur in multiple stages throughout several months. Each stage of your treatment consists of separate fees. This can actually make it easier to pay for your dental implants because you don’t need to cover the entire amount upfront. Dr. Salivonchik will explain each step in your plan and how much you can expect to pay, including:
Dental implants are an investment for several reasons. They are proven to last for several decades, so you’ll never need to worry about paying to have them replaced if you take the time to care for them over the years, like maintaining your oral hygiene.
Dental implants also improve your oral health because they stimulate your jawbone. This provides any remaining teeth with the support they need to stay in place. This decreases your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and additional tooth loss to reduce the need for costly treatments in the future.
Dental insurance carriers won’t pay for the entire treatment, but your policy may cover certain aspects after paying your annual deductible. It may pay for the X-rays, anesthesia, restorations, or other components in your treatment until you reach your yearly limit. We work on your behalf with your insurance company to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket. We will take the time to discuss your payment options to cover any remaining balance, such as using CareCredit.
