Dental insurance is a tool with some unfortunate limitations, one of which is dental implant coverage. Since most dental insurance companies consider dental implants an "elective procedure," they might not cover your upcoming surgery. However, our goal is to make dental implants a possibility for each of our patients who need them, which is why we offer a wide range of payment options.
In addition to accepting cash, we also take personal checks, debit, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. Because surgical dental procedures are typically considered a qualifying medical expense, many of our patients choose to use their flex spending or health savings accounts, much like they would for laser eye surgery.
Our office staff has years of experience working with dental insurance companies, so we can work with your provider to see if you have coverage for implant procedures. If you are concerned as to whether or not dental implants are covered by your dental insurance plan, simply give us a call and ask us to explore the possibility. Our management staff will contact your insurance company, discuss your coverage options, and figure out if there is anything your insurance company will do to offset your costs.
Everyone has a different financial situation, which is why we are willing to work with you to create a custom payment plan. If you are unable to pay for your dental implants up front, we can create a reasonable payment schedule that works with your monthly budget. If you are worried about being able to pay for dental implants, meet with one of our office financial specialists today. We can talk with you about appropriate monthly payments, possible repayment timetables, and overall costs to give you a better idea of what to expect.
We know that dental implants can be expensive, which is why we do everything in our power to reduce expenses for our patients. One of the most effective ways we do this is by doing things correctly the first time around. We focus on giving each and every patient the care and attention they deserve, and focusing on tackling the most pressing dental needs first. We will never pressure you to receive treatment that you don't need, and you will always have the final say when it comes to your dental care. We also work hard to be upfront with our patients regarding the cost of procedures.
When patients realize the cost of a single dental implant, they typically shy away from the procedure. However, as with anything else, you get what you pay for. Dental implants offer a litany of incredible benefits, which means that they can actually pay for themselves in the end. Here are some reasons dental implants are a wise and worthwhile investment.
