Cost is an important consideration in any dental treatment plan. At Parshin Dental, our goal is to deliver world class care and long-lasting dental implants in Staten Island and beyond at affordable prices. Although Dr. Alex Parshin cannot provide an exact quote for dental implant costs without meeting you in person and assessing your needs, our team can provide some general information that should be helpful as you consider your options.
Factors that Determine Dental Implant Cost
No two dental implant patients are exactly alike, so the treatment costs vary by your individual needs. The cost of dental implants treatment depends on factors such as the following:
- The number of teeth that need to be replaced
- The number of implants needed
- The type of implants used
- The type of restoration (e.g., crown, bridge, denture) used
- The number of appointments needed to complete dental implant treatment
- Whether an adjunct procedure such as bone grafting or tooth extraction is required prior to implant placement
- The technology used during the treatment planning stage
Working with Dr. Parshin can actually save you money in the long run. Because he handles every stage of the implant procedure himself, it saves you from having to travel to different offices to have your implant(s) placed and restored by different doctors. Everything is handled under one roof for a fair price.
Does Insurance Cover Dental Implants?
Although plans are more likely to cover implants today than a decade ago, not every company offers coverage. To determine whether you are eligible for coverage through your plan, call your provider and ask directly. Our office is also available to answer any general questions you may have about dental insurance.
Invest in Your Oral Health
As you consider the cost of dental implants and weigh it against your other options, like dental bridges or dentures, keep in mind that the alternative options normally require regular maintenance. Dentures or bridges may last for five to seven years before needing repair or complete replacement. When you tally up the repeated costs of repairing or replacing these dental restorations every few years, it becomes clear that the one-time cost of dental implants (and the peace of mind that comes with them) is well worth it. As long as they are properly cared for and maintained, implants are designed to last many years. Think of the cost of dental implants as one-time investment in your oral health and wellness. Can you really put a price on a beautiful, healthy smile?
Beware of Discount Pricing
Also, beware of advertisements or practices that offer dental implants for rock bottom prices. Often, these prices are meant to attract customers to what end up being shoddy practices or inexperienced dentists. The experience and credentials of your implant dentist should be your top priority — not the discount pricing. Remember that you get what you pay for and choose your implant dentist carefully. Dr. Parshin is a fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and a highly respected implant dentist.
