Chicago practice suggests several ways to afford the cost of dental implants

Dental implants can be a terrific lifetime solution for missing teeth. However, cost of treatment is naturally a concern. The team at Big Smile Dental in Chicago is passionate about helping you get the care you deserve. Here are some ideas to help make dental implants affordable on virtually any budget.


 Many dental insurers pay for the lowest cost alternative to a dental implant. Reimbursement for the price of a partial denture or bridge can take a big chunk out of your implant bill. In addition, a portion of necessary extractions, diagnostics, and bone grafting could be covered. Medical insurance is continually changing, so don’t overlook it also. It is certainly worth a few telephone calls to gain the benefits of dental implants.


If your employer offers an FSA (flexible spending account), take advantage of it. This is a chance to set pretax dollars aside for treatment – usually the equivalent of about 33 percent savings. An investment in your smile and oral health is a worthwhile use for an income tax refunds, holiday bonuses, or other windfalls, too.
