Cover of dental implants by health insurance

Health insurance will only cover dental care in the event of a serious injury causing the injury. Under no circumstances do medical plans cover dental procedures caused by natural causes or poor hygiene.

Extended plans like Medicare Advantage (US) can cover costs, but you only have to go to a partner dentist, but you will have less choice of dentists.

Successful track record of covering the expenses of your colleague or immediate family member does not guarantee a similar payment for you. Specify the conditions specified in the contract, annual limits, reasons for cover and the terms of the franchise, if the insurance is purchased through an intermediary.

How to financially prepare for dental implants

Use this checklist to prepare your dental implant budget:

  • Ask your insurance company for a complete copy of your dental insurance plan. Study it well, it will help you understand exceptions and loopholes that you will not know about otherwise.
  • Ask your dentist or clinic for a complete quote including prices for each part of the dental implantation process. Including:
  • examination;
  • implant;
  • abutment;
  • crown;
  • cost of removal;
  • price of bone grafts, if it will needed;
  • cost of a temporary crown.
  • Check with your dentist for payment options and installment options within their organization.
  • Specify the options for payment with a bank loan.

Start implantation immediately after tooth extraction, otherwise you may not have enough bone for implantation. This may require more costly (and unexpected) treatment.

Start saving the money you need as early as possible. Use savings deposits to offset expenses.

How to save money on dental implants – 8 advice’s

How to Save on Dental Implants - 8 Advice

Since implants are very expensive treatments for the average person, you probably want to save money on them. Below are some popular ways to save or reduce the cost of dental implants:

Travel abroad.Traveling for inexpensive dental care, also known as “dental tourism,” is the most sought-after way to get implants at a lower cost. Make sure you are visiting a well-educated dentist with an excellent rating in the country of the procedure. Consult online sources like PatientsBeyondBorders.com, TreatmentAbroad.com, 103.by, BelMedTour.com. These sites will provide you with information on accreditation, opportunities, cost comparisons, and offer a look at what to consider before traveling abroad.
Dental implantation is a process that requires at least two visits to the selected country. Calculate your travel expenses carefully. Alternatively, you can diversify the stages of dental restoration – place implants in another country, bring the abutments with you in your carry-on luggage and ask your local dentist to install them and a permanent crown after the gums have healed.

Talk to your dentist. Many offices offer special discounts on services prescribed to you that are not covered by dental insurance. They can be as high as 40%, depending on the specific office, especially if you pay in cash rather than by credit card.

Go to dental school. Dental procedures at the dental school are paid at a lower rate than in a regular dental office, but under the supervision of an experienced dentist. In the online sources of your country, you can find a list of participating educational institutions.

Find a dentist on the recommendation of someone how you know. Working with a dentist found on personal recommendation will minimize the risks of implant failure and costs. Ask your foreign friends who have excellent teeth where they received this service and how much it cost. Most of our patients from the USA, the European Union and Russia come precisely on the recommendation of their friends.

Discuss the option of installing without temporary teeth. A temporary crown is placed over the site of the implant because after the implant is placed, the bone takes time to heal. However, if the implant is in an inconspicuous part of the mouth, or if you don’t mind having a missing tooth visible, you won’t need a temporary crown, which can lower your overall costs.

Choose a different treatment option. Implantation, but this is not the only treatment option. For dental caries, a root canal treatment is a better option by placing a crown on the damaged tooth after it has been treated. In other cases, veneers, dentures, or bridges will serve you at a much lower cost. Talk to your dentist before making any decision about your treatment plan.

Find out about charity coverage for your implants. Various organizations can help cover the cost of dental implants in special cases. Give Back a Smile, Dental Lifeline Network, CDG, and the ADA Foundation offer grants that may cover certain dental procedures, including implants. Fill out an application on their websites to become eligible for funding.

Find a clinical trial near you. If you are willing to participate in a clinical trial, manufacturing companies can provide you with free or low-cost dental implants in exchange for using your expertise to collect research data.

You can also suggest your own ways. For example, offer the owner of the clinic an advance payment for treatment during the quiet season, or ask for a discount for a video review. Write us your suggestions on ways to save money by email info@implant-center.by and we will be happy to publish them.

FAQ:

What are the advantages of dental implants?

A: The most important advantage is that only a dental implant fully reproduces the functionality of a healthy tooth, transfers the natural load on the bone when chewing, thereby preserving its volume and health. This property prevents the remaining teeth from shifting and possible occlusion problems as in the case of dentures.

A dental implant looks and feels like a real tooth in the mouth. They do not require additional cleaning devices such as an irrigator as opposed to dentures. All implant care is similar to healthy teeth – brushing twice a day and occasionally flossing and having a yearly dental check-up.

What are the disadvantages of dental implants?

A: Dental implantation has several relative disadvantages to be aware of:

  1. After the surgical stage, a considerable time is required for the implants to heal (3-6 months). At this time, temporary acrylic crowns, or the so-called. “plugs” (healing caps). Only after that they will be replaced with permanent ones.
  2. The second disadvantage of dental implants is the very high cost with little or no dental insurance coverage.
  3. There is an extremely small chance of rejection of dental implant components (less than 2.5%).
  4. With poor placement, there is a potential risk of bone loss, especially with age. In the case when the occlusal loads are incorrectly calculated when choosing the places and angles of implant placement. The use of specialized software (eg ExoCad) and equipment (CAD / CAM) minimizes the human factor.

How long do dental implants last?

A: They usually last more than 15 years, especially with gold alloy crowns. When placed properly, dental implants will last the rest of your life. Only crowns may require periodic replacement.

The service life of metal-ceramic crowns is 3-5 years; metal-free crowns can serve for life; gold not only has a positive effect on the microclimate in the mouth, but also has a similar density to healthy teeth and does not destroy them when the jaws are clenched.

How does a dentist decide that there is a need for a bone graft for implant placement?

A: Bone grafting is needed to ensure proper fixation of the implant. Depending on the condition of the jaw ridge, its volume and bone density (after studying computer images), a decision is made about the type of length and diameter of the future implant, the place and angle of its installation.

If the width and strength of the bone is sufficient to securely adhere to the entire body of the implant, then the graft is unnecessary since the socket is small enough to accommodate the implant’s diameter.

Is it possible that a dental implant won’t for me?

A: Most people can completely safely place dental implants if they have normal physical and mental health and proper oral hygiene. Like any operation, implantation requires some preparation with due responsibility from the patient.

An unambiguous prohibition for implantation can be:

  • Diabetes mellitus without consulting an endocrinologist
  • Leukemia or connective tissue disorders (e.g. lupus erythematosus)
  • Age younger than 18-20 years (the jaw is not fully formed yet)
  • Pregnancy
  • Taking anticoagulants
  • Anomalies in the location of the sinuses
  • Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)

How do I choose a good dentist for implantation?

A: A dentist with extensive training and experience, including bone grafting, is the best choice for your dental implant. It is even better if he has completed additional training as a maxillofacial surgeon. Please note that two doctors take part in the operation and it is the orthopedist who makes the main decisions. Therefore, pay attention to the experience and certificates of both specialists, the more real experience they have, the higher the probability of success of the operation.
Overall, testimonials from former patients are the best way to choose a dentist for your dental implant.
