One of the most common questions our experts receive from patients is… Whether their insurance will cover a dental implant.
The answer depends on the type of implant you need and the type of insurance.
In this post, we will discuss the factors affecting the insurance coverage of dental implants.
Factors That Determine Your Insurance Coverage
Let’s look at the parts of the treatment and the amount of coverage for each:
This step depends on whether you’re missing a tooth or need extraction for a damaged tooth.
If a damaged tooth is present, its removal is a part of the dental treatment. In most cases, insurance will cover the cost in full or part.
Some patients need jawbone reinforcement to ensure the stability of the implant.
This part of the procedure might not be covered in most dental insurances.
Placing an implant is the central part of the procedure. Most dental insurances cover up to 50% of the expense.
Placing the Artificial Tooth
Placing an artificial tooth, commonly known as a crown, offers the functionality and appearance of a natural tooth. Up to 50% of the cost of this procedure is covered by most dental insurances.
If you are unsure, the staff at your dentist’s office will be able to work directly with your insurance company to figure out your coverage based on the treatment plan.
