When a patient is looking to replace missing teeth, there is no option that is more durable and secure than dental implants. And when a patient is looking for experts in dental implant dentistry, they should look no further than Boston cosmetic dentists Mauro Stuparich and Alexandra Nouel. Dr. Stuparich and Dr. Nouel have extensive training in implant dentistry. Implant dentistry provides patients with dental restorations that are secured by titanium posts that have been surgically implanted into the jawbone. This provides patients with security, comfort, and durability that is far superior to traditional restorative dentistry treatments. While this may all sound great, most patients are left asking themselves, “How much will this cost?” It is true that dental implants are more costly than most other dental treatments. However, the staff at Stuparich and Nouel Dental Associates is happy to go over the costs of dental implants as well as explore some payment options for patients.
The Costs of Dental Implants
Dental implants can be a costly due to the amount of time and work involved in the treatment process. The treatment itself consists of several appointments and oral surgery, all of which add to the cost of dental implants. The exact cost of dental implants treatment will be determined by the amount of dental implants required, the type of dental restoration attached to the dental implants, and the number of dental procedures required to complete the dental implants treatment. Because there are so many factors that affect the cost of dental implants treatment, a consultation with Dr. Stuparich or Dr. Nouel is the only way to determine the exact cost of dental implants treatment. Depending on the dentist performing the dental implants procedure and all of the factors noted above, the cost of dental implants can range from $1,000 to $3,000. The average cost of a complete dental implant (with the abutment and dental restoration) is around $4,000. This may seem pricey, but the advantage of the dental implant is its durability. While the dental restoration itself may require replacement at some point, the dental implant should last a lifetime.
Patients who are wondering how they could afford dental implants treatment are not alone. For patients in Boston, dental implants treatment is very rarely paid with cash. Dental implants are a considerable expense, but it is also an investment in a patient’s oral health. Dr. Stuparich and Dr. Nouel want all of their patients to be able to benefit from the dental implants procedure, so they are happy to accept a variety of payment options. Depending on a patient’s insurance coverage, the dental implants procedure may be partially covered. Some common forms of payment used to cover the remaining costs of dental implants include:
- Credit card
- Flexible spending account
- Personal loan
- Medical loan or credit card
There are pros and cons for each of these payment options that should be considered in order to determine the most appropriate financing option for each patient. The staff of Stuparich and Nouel Dental Associates will be happy to give patients more details on these payment options.
