Can I Afford Dental Implants?
If you are considering tooth replacement, you may be wondering if implants are worth the added expense. They are: while traditional restorations are more affordable, they do not provide the aesthetic, functional, and health advantages of a crown, bridge, or denture supported by a dental implant. Though the upfront costs associated with implants are higher, the long-term benefits cannot be matched.
To help with the cost of treatment, Midnight Sun Dental accepts most dental insurance plans. Implants are generally not covered by dental insurance, but preparatory procedures and final restorations may qualify for coverage. Our friendly office staff will gladly file all necessary paperwork with your provider to ensure you take full advantage of your benefits.
For patients without insurance, or for those with insurance who are interested in minimizing out-of-pocket expenses, we also offer flexible financing options. Since every case is unique, our team can answer any questions you may have about the cost of your individualized treatment plan. We will be glad to work with you so that you can receive the treatment you need to restore your smile.
Our advanced dental practice includes the latest technology including 3-D Computed Tomography (CT) imaging. This incredible tool provides Dr. Latteier with three-dimensional images so that he can review the state of your dental health. The detailed digital images can show a number of important details that can affect the outcome of your treatment including the position of your surrounding teeth and the density of your jawbone.
Accurate implant placement is crucial to the success of dental implant surgery. Dr. Latteier can use our 3-D CT scanner to precisely plan your surgery. This allows him to place each titanium or zirconia implant post in its optimal position. With properly placed implants, you can enjoy a faster recovery and better long-term results.
