Cheap Dental Implants

If you have already been searching around the internet looking up prices for dental implants, you may have begun to realize that the prices for them can get quite expensive.  While the price for a single dental implant can be $1,000-$3,000, you can begin to get into $25,000 and $50,000 for a whole dental reconstruction surgery.

With prices that high, it's no wonder that you're searching for cheap dental implants.  Even at a discount on some of these prices, they can be extremely high, and have you paying them off for many, many months.  In fact, some videos about dental implants that I have seen relate the prices of the implants to that of a car, and those are coming from the dentists themselves.  It is definitely no secret how high the prices are, but there are definitely some ways that you can get cheap dental implants.  It does depend on some financial situations, and other circumstances, but I am going to help you to by telling you some things you can do in order to get cheaper dental implants.

Beware of Free Dental Implants

While it is nice to find cheap dental implants, how much nicer is it to find free dental implants? The problem is, a lot of the advertisements that are advertising dental implants are scams. There are different ways that the companies go about this trickery, and so I am going to give you a few of them to look out for:

  • The first is hidden fees. Dentists will get you into the office, get you in the chair for the surgery, and get to work. Then, when you're done with the surgery you'll find out that there were a lot of hidden fees associated with the dental implant surgery. Some of these are legitimate expenses, but sometimes the dentists try to extract extra money by adding superficial fees. Be sure to talk with the different dentists to get an idea of what extra charges and fees you might incur.
  • Realize that these "free implants" are for the implant only, and no other services. Sometimes they will charge you for the surgery, while making sure to keep the actual titanium implant free. Others will even do the surgery for free, but you'll need to realize that you'll have to pay for the veneers or the fake teeth.

Just be sure to talk with the dentists and find out exactly what you're getting into. Often times though, "free dental implants" are just a marketing ploy, so make sure you don't get fooled by those enticing offers in your search for cheap dental implant prices.

And it doesn't hurt to ask.  Simply explaining your situation is a great options for how to get dentists to give you cheaper rates on dental implants.  It won't work for all dentists, but it is definitely worth a shot.

Dental Insurance Helps

With the expensive prices of dental implants, one of the ways to get a cheap dental implant is to get dental insurance.  Different insurance companies cover stuff differently, so there's no specific price I can give you as to how much cheaper they are.  You will have to look into the different dental insurance options to figure out which one will get you the best prices.

One thing to look out for is that some dental insurance companies won't cover dental implants, because sometimes it is for a cosmetic reason.  So, definitely talk with them about your specific needs and if they'll be able to cover what you need.  There is no point in paying for insurance specifically for dental implants if they don't even cover the dental implants.

American Dental Association

Another great place to look for cheaper dental implants is with the American Dental Association.  They will be able to refer you with some of the dentists that are near you, who are willing to work for reduced rates depending on your income situation.  A lot of the people who get dental implants are on a fixed income, and often times they will be able to qualify for the cheaper dental implants rates from the various dentists.  be sure to shop around because you may be able to get a better rate from one dentist over another, even if both of them offer reduced rates compared to the rest of the dentists in the area.

Find a Dental School for Cheap Dental Implants

Often times, one of the best places to get cheap dental work, including a cheap dental implant, is at the local dental school.  Look up the dental school in the phone book or online and contact them.  often times there are dental students there who need to get their hours in, and so they are willing and able to work for very cheap prices, and sometimes even for free.  They are always under the supervision of a licensed dentist during the procedures.

I would have to agree that dental implants can get quite expensive, so it's nice to see a Hub with helpful information on how to get them done for a cheap price.

Keep up the good work Amanda - look forward to seeing more of your post

When a lot of work is to be done and the costs are outrageous here in the USA, then a MUCH cheaper alternative would be to have the dental implants installed in Costa Rica.

The work in Costa Rica is excellent and often better than the U.S.

I recently did an analysis of the average cost of implant and its crown for the dentists. Between placing a quality implant and crown, the cost averages $1400 to $1900- That is just the cost of materials and laboratory- without including office overhead, staff, etc. So, I have to always question free or special offers as we see in the advertisements. As Amanda said, one has to be beware of such offers. The only viable option, as discussed in the article, is the use of dental schools where the overall treatment can be less as they buy their materials much cheaper than available to private practitioners and have tuition to cover the overhead. Use of quality and accepted implants and laboratories and ideal team approach between a surgeon and restorative dentist can be more costly, but in my experience, much better results and longevity of the treatment offered.

Thank you for this great post- look forward to reading more.

I totally agree with your view.Dental implant is expensive, but not that much.I did a survey of dental implants that Dentures attached to mini dental implants (immediate function):$4,000 - $8,000 per arch and Dentures attached to endosseous root form implants (traditional implants):$9,000 - $15,000 per arch. But this pricing is approximate. If the clinic is reliable and responsible,then price is no matter.Nice share! An awesome posting yet again. Keep up the good work and provide us with more such intriguing stuff even in the future.

Dental tourism in India is a rapidly growing phenomenon which has made dental implants treatment in India available at an affordable cost. India has become one of the most important hubs for dental implant treatment.

Exorbitant cost of health care and medical facilities in advanced countries, ease and affordability of international travel, favorable currency exchange rates in the global economy.

Dental implants can get a bit expensive, especially if you don't do enough research before having implants done. That is why I visit the NIB Dental Care Centres whenever I need some dental checkups, including those concerning dental implants. One of the things I like about said dental centre is that the offer a wide range of dental services for NIB members as well as to non-members. For more details, you can visit http://www.nib.com.au.
