Teeth are one of the most important parts of our bodies. They are where nutrition and digestion begin. We need our teeth for support of a healthy body. When we are missing teeth, our health is ultimately affected, and we become more subconscious about our appearance as well. When we are missing a tooth, the teeth on either side of it eventually shift or lean towards the open space, which further cause dental problems that become more serious. Replacing missing teeth is important in preventing more serious problems down the road, but there is a common myth people have surrounding the costs associated with dental implants. Dental implants are actually more affordable than people think, even in the pricey San Francisco Bay Area!
As one of San Francisco’s top dental implant centers, we’d like to share this quick blog post to help you understand just how affordable dental implants may truly be!
Dental Implants – The Factors Behind the Cost
The cost of dental implant surgery is a combination of many factors. These factors are different for every person, and every dental implant surgery, including the cost, is unique to your individual needs, situation, and financial capability. Below is a breakdown of some of the factors that go into the cost of dental implant surgery.
- The number of teeth being replaced.
- The number of implants required to support your replacement teeth.
- Some additional procedures may be required prior to the placement of your dental implants to ensure the long-term health of your dental implants.
- Surgical procedure
- Attaching the posts and constructing your replacement teeth.
- Diagnostic examination of your mouth.
None of the above factors are cheap, however they are more affordable than you think because at San Francisco Dental we have years of experienced professionals who make it their priority to help patients obtain financing. Like anything, financing is, to a degree, also tailored to you specifically…i.e how much you can afford to pay each month, your current financial expenses, etc. We offer two kinds of special credit/financing that is designed to meet the needs of any financial status.
- Chase Health Advance
- CareCredit Cosmetic Financing
With this type of financing, not only can you get an interest free loan for a select amount of time, but often times, they don’t even require a down payment! And the interest rates are what you would expect to pay for traditional types of credit, such as mastercard and visa.
Weighing out the benefits of restoring the health of your mouth with the cost associated with doing so results in a very simple conclusion. It is far better and less expensive to invest now in your oral health now, than it will be to address all of the health issues that will inevitably ensue down the road that will end up costing you way more.
We care about the well-being of our patients oral health, and you see that from the very first visit. We add a personal touch that our patients have raved over for years. Word of mouth from our patients always includes the fact that we aren’t just a sterile office with scalpels in our hands and dollar signs in our eyes, but rather a warm, friendly, and no-nonsense staff that genuinely cares about what is best for our patients. That’s what San Francisco Dental Implant Center is all about.
