Here at the practice of Dr. K. Ashraf, we understand that one of the main reasons why some patients fail to restore their missing teeth is because of the costs associated with teeth restoration treatments. It is for this reason that we accept many different payment methods for treatment with dental implants, and we even offer financing options through a third party.
At our Waterloo, ON area practice, we believe in an implant process that is completely streamlined for the benefit of the patient. From the first consultation to the final payment, we work to ensure that the process is as comfortable and understandable as possible. We encourage you to read on to learn more about the cost of dental implants.
The cost of your dental implant treatment is determined by looking at a variety of different factors. The factor that affects the cost of your treatment the most is how many implants you need. Dental implants are made up of three pieces, the implant fixture, the abutment, and the porcelain crown. Each of these pieces is customized in order to perfectly fit your oral anatomy. Aside from the implant fixture, various materials can be chosen between to create your implant’s abutment and the replacement crown. The cost of these two pieces can vary depending on which material you choose to go with.
The cost of your treatment may also rise depending on whether or not you need a supplementary procedure and the extent of the damage to your oral structure that needs to be treated by that procedure before you can move forward with the implant procedure.
On average, the cost of treatment with dental implants is between $1,500 and $5,000 per implant. During your consultation, Dr. K. Ashraf will perform an examination of your oral health, which will allow him to make a better estimate of how much your implant treatment will cost.
It is very important that our patients with missing teeth work to restore those teeth as quickly as possible. The reason for this is the fact that missing teeth can actually compromise your oral health. For instance, missing teeth can actually weaken your jawbone, as it will no longer be receiving the exercise it needs to stay healthy. Jawbone deterioration can have many effects on you body, such as weakening your bite and even affecting your facial appearance. It is also possible that you will develop tooth decay or gum disease because of your missing tooth.
It may seem more economical to simply go without restoring your missing teeth. However, failing to do so can leave you with a dangerous oral condition that can end up costing you even more to treat than you would have paid had you simply restored your missing tooth.
For our patients who are looking for help with covering the costs associated with their dental implant treatment, we are happy to provide financing through Dentalcard. Dentalcard is a special financing service offered by iFinance Canada that is used to cover your dental treatment. We prefer Dentalcard to other financing providers because it allows our patients to choose the time frame in which they would like to pay back their loan when they apply for the service. This means you can decide if you would like to pay off your loan in anywhere from 6 months to 6 years. Dentalcard will also take care of everything for you. Once they receive your agreement signature, they will pay us directly, meaning you won’t have to worry about being the middleman. Your monthly payment is then taken directly from your chequing account, which ensures that you’ll never have to worry about paying a bill in time.
