There are many restorative options available to replace missing teeth, but only one that replaces the entire structure of the tooth from root to crown. Dental implants are embedded in the jawbone, preventing bone atrophy and providing a superior level of comfort and stability. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Implants are an elective procedure, and as a result, the cost can be intimidating. But when you consider the many benefits of treatment, it can be one of the best investments you ever make. We offer dental implants financing options at our San Antonio area offices to help you afford this incredibly beneficial treatment. If you would like to learn more about how we can make dental implants a comfortable fit for your budget, please contact our office today.
How Much Dental Implants Cost?
Dental implant procedures are unique to each patient. Depending on the patient’s needs, the number of implants, the kind of restorations, and the extent of preparatory treatment necessary is different in every case. When you come in for your initial consultation with a DIA Dental Implant expert, he will take a computerized tomography (CT) scan of your teeth and underlying bone structure. This helps him determine whether your require bone grafting or a sinus lift, the number of implants needed, and the best type of implants for you. In general, price increases with the number of implants placed and the amount of preparatory treatment needed.
Dental Implant Financing Options
We want all of our patients to be able to afford dental implants. There are several financing options available at our office for patients to consider:
- In-office financing – We will be happy to work with you to find a financing option with which you can be comfortable. We are pleased to offer patients flexible options, including 12-month interest-free terms for those that qualify.
- Flex spending account – Recently, more employers have started offering the option of a flex spending account (FSA) to their employees. An FSA is an account set aside exclusively for medical and dental expenses and contains pre-taxable income. FSAs are a very useful tool used to pay for procedures that are not typically covered by dental and health insurance, and there are no financing fees or interest rates to worry about.
- Personal loans or credit cards – Patients will often consider taking out a personal loan or opening a credit card to cover the cost of treatment. This financing option may include fees and interest, so be sure that you understand the terms before signing the agreement. There are several financial institutions that offer lower interest rate programs exclusively for medical and dental expenses.
Additionally, we accept cash, checks, and major credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.
The benefits of custom dental implants treatment are probably more affordable than you think. If you would like more information about financing options for dental implants, please contact our office to schedule a consultation.
