Female model for dental implants. Dental implants are a versatile treatment option that can provide excellent results in many different cases. Like with other dental treatment options, patients are often concerned about the affordability of dental implants. The relationship between most insurance plans and dental implants can be complex.

Your Dental Implant Treatment

There are multiple stages to receiving dental implants. These stages are often considered independent of one another when it comes to dealing with insurance, so some may be covered while others are not.

The consultation and X-rays that go into evaluating your situation and determining the need for dental implants are likely to be covered by most plans. There are also a variety of treatments you could need before implant treatment, from tooth extraction to bone grafts, that are also considered individually.

Dental implant surgery and implant restoration (the crown, bridge, or All-on-4® replacement) are less likely to be covered by most insurance providers. In many cases, these treatments are considered largely cosmetic, despite their clear oral health benefits.

However, this is far from a universal rule. The best way to find out whether dental implants are right for you in terms of both your health and affordability is to schedule a consultation.

Special Cases for Insurance

There are a few notable special cases where many insurance plans are more likely to cover costs related to dental implants. The most common exception for dental implants is when tooth loss is related to injury or physical trauma.

In these cases, dental implant placement may be just one part of a larger reconstructive surgery. This changes the nature of the treatment from cosmetic to restorative in the eyes of many insurance providers. Insurance plans are more likely to cover some portion of the implant placement costs through this type of coverage.
