Will Insurance Cover Your Dental Implant?

Posted in Dental Implants

Dental implants are surgical quality metal rods/screws that bind themselves within your jawbone. They are the closest you can get to having your natural teeth back once they’re lost.

Implants are also notoriously known for being more expensive than traditional types of missing tooth treatments.

You might be interested in dental implants, but they might only be an option if your insurance will help out with the cost.

Will your insurance cover a dental implant procedure?

Dental Insurance and Dental Implants

Unfortunately, some dental insurance companies don’t have a policy that covers dental implants. That’s because they may consider them as non-medically-necessary. If so, they don’t fall under insurance coverage.

But more insurances are covering implants than ever before. Plus, you may also get coverage for the crown that restores your implant. This would make the implant and surgery even more affordable.

How to Afford Dental Implants

Even if your insurance doesn’t cover implants as you’d hoped, there are still ways to save money on this treatment.

Getting a one-time dental implant could save you more money in the long run than a denture. Removable dental appliances need to be regularly repaired and replaced over the years adding up to tens of thousands in dental costs. But once you get an implant, that’s it. An implant is made to last for life.

Talk with a dental implant provider to learn about what financing options the clinic can offer. Dental financing like CareCredit can make it easier to afford your necessary procedures.

Lastly, look into what your health insurance covers. Your health insurance provider may cover them if they are deemed medically-necessary.
