Financing Dental Implants
When patients start exploring the possibility of dental implants to replace their missing teeth, they tend to focus on the upfront costs of the procedure. While it is true that dental implants can be expensive, these costs pale in comparison to the expensive lifetime upkeep involved with traditional partial bridges or dentures. Since dentures and partial bridges don’t stop bone loss like dental implants do, the teeth, underlying jaw tissue, and palate continue to change, leading to the constant need for adjustments. In fact, most patients need a new set of dentures every 5-7 years. However, dental implants can last a lifetime, saving you money in the long run.
Oak Park Dental Believes in Quality Dental Care
Here at Oak Park Dental Care, we believe that every patient deserves to enjoy the smile of their dreams. For this reason, we offer a wide variety of financing options for our services, even if they aren’t covered by your normal dental insurance.
Dental Implants and Insurance Coverage
Because dental implants are usually considered “cosmetic,” most dental insurance companies do not offer coverage for dental implants in Madison WI. For this reason, we encourage all of our patients to contact their insurance company to learn more about their policy before their initial dental implant consultation. Some dental insurance companies offer discounts for dental implant placement, or may cover portions of the surgery. However, the only way to find out what your insurance company offers is to contact them and talk with them about the procedures you are considering. Oak Park Dental is happy to provide you with procedural codes so that you can get an accurate estimate of what your insurance plan will cover.
Our office accepts cash, check, and credit cards (Discover, MasterCard, and Visa) as forms of payment. As a courtesy to our patients, we will file your insurance forms to help you maximize reimbursement. Our office also offers in-house payment plans and cash discounts for patients who choose to pay upfront for services. For more information about our financing policies, contact our office or stop by to talk with our accounting specialist.
Medical Financing for Dental Implants
Oak Park Dental has also partnered with CareCredit in order to offer our patients the financing they need for potentially expensive dental procedures. Unlike other credit cards, CareCredit offers short repayment plans with no interest for on-time payments. You can tailor your monthly payment to accommodate your budget.
CareCredit is also unique because it can be used across a wide range of healthcare industries. Because it is accepted at thousands of healthcare providers across the country, many patients use their CareCredit accounts to finance medical procedures, hearing aids, LASIK eye surgery, and even veterinary procedures. CareCredit is easy to apply for, and the forms can even be filled out online by clicking here.
