What Are the Most Affordable Dental Implant Options?
By Dr. Collier on May 31, 2019
There are many factors that affect the cost of dental implants treatment. This includes the number of dental implants needed, the complexity of a patient’s needs, and even the dentists or oral surgeons who are involved in the treatment process. That’s why Dr. Jason S. Collier and his fellow dentists serving the Memphis, TN area do not shy away from discussing payments options and cost concerns with patients. We want to have honest discussions about these kitchen table matters at the Southern Dental Implant Center so you can make smart choices about your dental health.
Given the varied cost, it’s no wonder that many patients ask our team if there are ways that they can save money on the dental implant treatment process. The options below are helpful, and they shed light on the nature of implant dentistry.
Same-Day Dental Implant Options
Some patients may qualify for same-day dental implants. These options allow dental implants to be placed in a single day rather than requiring months of healing after oral surgery. Given the reduced timeframe for treatment and the reduced overall cost, people who qualify for All-on-4® or Same Day Teeth™ could save on implant dentistry treatment.
Consider a Different Location for Dental Implants
Location is important for many things in life. This includes the cost of goods and services, dental care included. The cost of dental implants in the Memphis area is going to be lower than the cost of dental implants in a much bigger city. That said, you could try to comparison shop between dental practices in Tennessee to see if you can save hundreds if not thousands of dollars.
Medical Tourism for Dental Implants
On the note of location, it’s not unheard of to travel to another country in order to undergo extensive dental work or medical care. Medical tourism allows patients to save thousands of dollars on quality treatments, even with the cost of travel factored in. Be sure to do your research on the oral surgeon and dentists doing your work. Finding reputable dental health specialists is going to be crucial for quality.
Schools of Dentistry
Many dental schools offer discounted dental care services. The procedures are performed by dentists in training, and the quality can be good. Some people are wary about major dental services performed by relatively inexperienced dentists, however, which could leave a person wary of undergoing dental treatment at a dental school.
Dental Societies and Charities
There are many dental societies and dental care charities out there that provide discounted dental services to people in need. Try looking up these organizations online to see if they offer advanced procedures and treatments such as implant dentistry. It may be rare for dental implants to be offered by these groups, but it is always worth checking.
