Can I Use Insurance For Dental Implants

The documented success of dental implants has begun to influence insurance companies and their coverage as they recognize the long-term benefits of implants over other tooth replacement options.  However, because replacing a tooth with a dental implant is not a single procedure such as a filling or crown, your insurance policy may cover all, or only a portion, of the procedure.  Additionally, because dental implants can be staged over time you may be eligible to utilize benefits from multiple policy periods.  If your insurance plan does not provide for implant coverage, you can often contact your insurer directly to request the benefit that they would normally cover for a tooth supported bridge or denture to be applied to the implant procedure instead. Periodontists also provide payment options and other financing sources to help make implant treatment more affordable.
