Dental Implant Cost too high!!!  What can you do?

  1. If you have dental insurance, do the dental implant one year and the dental abutment and dental implant crown the next year.
  2. Ask your dentist what else can be done and let them know that you simply can’t or aren’t willing to spend that much on replacing the tooth.
  3. Go without a temporary in the area.
  4. Don’t get one.  You may quickly find you don’t miss it if it’s a back tooth.
  5. If the missing tooth is in the front, a cheap plastic removable prosthesis, commonly called a flipper, can be made for several hundred dollars.
  6. Go to a dental school.  Their fees are cheaper.
  7. Tell the office you simply can’t afford that and ask if there is anything they can do to help you out (unlikely but worth a try).  Maybe they are looking for patients to give video testimonials to use on their website and offers discounts to those people.
  8. Go to a doctor just getting into placing implants that needs more experience.  Not sure how exactly you could or would find that.  Ask your dentist if they place and if not ask if they are thinking about it and volunteer yourself as one of their first patients.  You may have to travel to a training center or another office but typically those implants are done at no charge to you.
  9. Find an office that trains other doctors to place implants.  They give discounts to the patients in their courses.  Typically the experienced doctor teaching the course does all the work.
