Taking care of your teeth is very important for your health and appearance, but unfortunately, not everyone has dental insurance. Dental insurance is not covered under the Affordable Care Act and is not offered for those who qualify for state-funded health insurance coverage.
Until it is recognized that dental insurance is just as important as medical insurance, you may have to find other ways to pay for dental treatments, including implants. Dental implants are a popular way to replace missing or damaged teeth, and regardless of your financial situation, you should never dismiss an opportunity that will drastically change your quality of life.
Dental insurance plans typically don’t cover a lot when it comes to Dental Implants. Having said that, if you do have insurance, please bring it with you to your complimentary consultation. Our expert team will work with you to make sure you get the most you can out of your dental insurance.
How to Pay Without Dental Insurance
ARCHPOINT Implant Dentistry recognizes you may not always be able to pay for your whole treatment at once, and that is why we offer flexible and affordable payment options for implants. We will take the time to personally consult with you about the different payment options we offer. Through partnerships with great financing and lending companies, ARCHPOINT is able to offer options ranging from 0% interest to extended payment plans up to 90 months.
Our on-site financial coordinator will be happy to sit down with you during your free initial consultation and help determine the best payment option for your situation.
There are also other options that can help you pay for dental implants such as considering an affordable dental insurance plan, saving up for your procedure, or creating a crowdfunding campaign to improve your smile.
Truth be told, dental implants are considered more of a cosmetic procedure than a medical necessity, and it is often the case they are NOT covered by dental insurance. It is possible that implants may be covered under your medical plan depending on the type of plan you have and the cause of your tooth loss. Therefore, even if you have top-of-the-line dental insurance, you may still need to find alternate payment options for your dental implants.
