Cost of Dental Implants

4 things you need to know about the cost of dental implants

Getting dental implants is increasingly becoming one of the most popular methods of replacing damaged, broken, or missing teeth. The whole process may scare some patients away because they’re unsure of what the procedure is like. That’s why it’s important to know the costs, risks, and procedure of dental implant surgery. In this article, we will explain four different things you should know about the costs associated with dental implants.

What’s the average cost of dental implants?

Dental implants tend to differ depending on a few factors. The first being the type of quality of the materials used. There are multiple types of dental implants, each costing a different amount. That’s why it’s important to get a consultation with your maxillofacial surgeon to evaluate your needs.

Are dental implants covered by RAMQ?

Dental implants are not covered by RAMQ. The best guideline we can give you is to check with your private insurance provider. Some offer partial coverage, some offer full coverage, and others may not offer any at all.

What about preparatory procedures?

Above all, your maxillofacial surgeon will perform all the necessary examinations to provide you with a proper procedure. The next step involves tooth extraction or other crucial procedures to prepare the site where the implant (s) will be placed. A bone graft will be strongly suggested to you by your maxillofacial surgeon if he / she notices an insufficiency in the bone structure. Bone grafting and implant placement can sometimes be done in separate appointments or at the same time as the implant under specific conditions. Your surgeon will inform you of the ideal treatment.

Additional costs to keep in mind

Often patients ask for a sedative because they don’t want to be awake during the surgery. This is very common, but there will be additional costs associated with the sedative as it isn’t a necessary component. Most medical insurances do cover the cost of sedation, but it’s always best to make sure beforehand.
