Dental Implant Cost
The cost of dental implants at Silver Oaks Dental Clinic is very cost effective. Prices start from R10 000 per tooth and can go up to R30 000 per tooth. We only use well known, internationally manufactured implants. This makes it very easy to find a part if something happens to your dental implants.
As the saying goes you get what you pay for and dental implants is no exception.
Bite And Chew Your Food Again
The largest benefit of Dental Implants is that you can bite and chew food again, smile and laugh with confidence and not worry whether they will slip or even fall out. You will also be able to speak well again especially if you need implants on your front teeth. Dental implants remove all speech problems.
Dental Implants is the most cost effective procedure in the long term as they DONT require a lot of maintenance and replacements like Dentures.
Bone Grafting Procedures Influence Cost
The total cost of Dental Implants has everything to do with the extent of services rendered. You may or may not require additional bone grafting procedures prior to implant placement. This depends on how much bone you have to work with. The longer the bone is left without a tooth to support it, the more bone you loose.
That is why it is always better to place an implant as soon as possible after a tooth is extracted so that you won’t need to have the extra cost of bone grafting on top of the cost of dental implants.
You should also consider that Dental Implants are fairly low maintenance. Unlike crowns, bridges and dentures that cost less initially but require maintenance in the long term, Dental Implants although costly to start often end up to be cheaper in the long run as they have a much longer lifespan (mostly permanent) than a crown or bridge which may need replacing every 5-10 years.
The Dental Implant Manufacturer Influences Cost
The cost of dental implants start from R10 000 and can go up to R22 000 per tooth depending on the manufacturer you choose, the number of implants that you require (the more you need the cheaper it becomes) if you require bone grafting etc. Chat to Dr Richard Huson and he will explain in detail.
You will also need to consider the experience and qualifications of the dental surgeon handling your case. Dental Implants are a special field of dentistry and care and expertise are paramount to success. Dr Huson has placed in excess 2000 Dental Implants and trained under celebrity dentist Dr Joe Oliver in the United Kingdom. You are guaranteed work that is of the highest quality.
Dental Implant Insurance
We found that some of our patients wanted to look great and improve their confidence but the affordability was an issue. Some patients are unable to afford the upfront cost of a medical procedure, or where medical aid does not cover the entire cost of the procedure. That is where medical financing comes into play. You can now afford to look amazing whilst paying monthly installments rather than the whole amount in one go.
Payment plans are affordable and flexible, and amounts financed range between R8000 up to R50000. The payment terms range between 6 and 36 months, ensuring that all levels of affordability are catered for.
There are no early settlement penalties, and pre-payments are accepted in order to try fast track the payment of the facility.
