There is no getting around dental implant cost in Tyler, TX. Why are implants so expensive? You have to understand that you’re not buying a product off of a shelf but rather are investing in a delicate and precise surgical and restorative service. When you’re price shopping it’s easy to forget this. Dental implants are “medical devices” just like pacemakers that are implanted into living tissue. Blood vessels, nerves, and sinuses also reside in living tissue. Placing implants to avoid critical blood vessels and nerves is both a science and an art. Dental implants have the potential to last for a lifetime when properly placed and maintained.
About medical and dental insurance: Even though these procedures are considered medically necessary dental plan coverage for a patient with extensive dental needs is usually very small compared to what is needed to get you back to feeling confident in any social situation and chewing comfortably. All the dental insurance company wants is to pay for the cheapest care. They generally only pay for basic dentistry, not the highest quality of dental care that Dr. Dowd feels you deserve.
Here are some ways that our other patients manage their costs and get their care done:
Dental Insurance unfortunately only pays a maximum yearly benefit of $1,000-2,000 for your care meaning that the majority of your treatment must come from other sources.
Using cash (5%) and major credit card (2.5%) discounts for payment in full of cases over $5,000 to reduce cost.
Dental financing. We have several companies that can finance up to $50,000 for care and in some cases even more based on your credit history. This enables you to have the care you need now and pay for it over several years to make it affordable.
Home equity loans; we can recommend several mortgage brokers to set this up.
Loans from 401K/Pension plans. Loans from life insurance policies.
Automobile or other asset refinancing.
Using a medical savings account through an employer’s cafeteria plan.
Gifts or Loans from friends or family members.
Medical Insurance in very rare cases may pay benefits for implant treatment if you’ve been in a car wreck or other severe accident. In the rare instance that your company is self-insured your human resources administrator might approve implant restorations. You HR administrator can give you more specific information.
Dr. Dowd’s dentistry is tax-deductible for most patients. You can take a tax deduction for the full amount in the first year when you start treatment even if you finance your treatment over time. Your CPA or other tax advisor can give you more information about this.
Dr. Dowd and his team look forward to working with you to give you back your health, self-confidence, chewing power, and comfort that you deserve with Dr. Dowd’s Implant Dentistry.
