Dental implants are a permanent solution for replacement teeth. They tend to be more durable and comfortable compared to traditional dentures. They can restore your smile and confidence. For many people, they seem like the best choice. The problem for some is that they are a bit more expensive than dentures. At Lovett Dental Corpus Christi, we want to ensure you have access to the best options for your smile. Let us offer guidance to you for financing your dental implant purchase.
Are Dental Implants Cover Under Insurance?
One of the most common questions we receive about implants is if they are covered by insurance. If you have dental insurance, you can reach out to your provider to find out if they offer coverage for dental implants. Most basic plans do not. They may cover other types of services that we provide as a component of your dental implant procedure. However, you need to reach out to those providers.
If you have a Health Savings Account or Flexible Spending Account, these may allow you to use them to cover the cost of your dental implants. Be sure to check with the terms of your agreement to know the details.
Financing Dental Implants
We do not offer in-house financing options. However, there are other ways you may be able to get some help to cover the costs of dental implants. If you have a credit card or a personal line of credit, you can use these funds to cover the costs. Some credit card companies offer specific coverage and lines of credit for dental procedures. You will need to apply and meet the credit qualifications to obtain these loans.
Are Dental Implants Worth the Investment?
The best answer here is yes. Dental implants are designed to last for 20 to 25 years, sometimes even longer. During this time, the implants will not require you to do any type of significant update or upgrade to them. They will not become damaged bay plaque either. That means you will not have to worry about the costs of things like cavities.
In addition to this, dental implants are also better in the long term than dentures. Though dentures tend to cost less, they need to be replaced sooner. They may not be as comfortable as implants are either. That is why you should consider this a significant investment in your oral health and overall confidence.
