The Benefits of Dental Implants are Amazing

Our first August blog answers another common question we know patients like you are looking for when researching dental implants online and calling the Northcutt Dental offices in Bay Minette, Fairhope, Semmes, Hoover, Helena, and Cottage Hill.

Before we start talking about the many benefits of dental implants, let’s talk about one of the other big questions we get from patients with this type of restorative treatment.

Are dental implants from Northcutt Dental covered by my insurance?

Unfortunately, most dental insurances do not cover dental implants. Some dental and even medical insurances will cover parts of your treatment, but every plan and what it covers varies from patient to patient. Dental insurances tend to see dental implants as not necessary dental care, but they are essential to help maintain healthy smiles for so many adult patients.

Your Northcutt Dental team will be happy to assist you with checking your dental insurance coverage. We’d be happy to discuss affordable payment options with everything from third-party financing to our in-house dental plan.

Let’s Get to the Good Stuff…

Here are just a few of the things you’re going to love about your dental implant from Northcutt Dental:

  1. Your dental implant is durable and built to last: We consulted with our friends at the American Association of Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) and found that they say dental implants have a 95% success rate and (with proper care) can last well over 25 years!
  2. Your dental implant is easy to care for: One of the big reasons why dental implants last so long is because they’re easy to maintain. To keep them clean, you just brush and floss as you normally would. If you have one dental implant or implant-retained dentures, all you have to do is stick to your regular oral health routine and come to see your Northcutt dentist every six months.
  3. Your dental implant will save you money and your health: One or more dental implants are literally a lifesaver to their neighboring teeth. They take the strain and extra pressure of off them when there’s a tooth that’s missing or broken next door. They help you eat more healthy, feel more positive, and look younger. They can save you money in the long run because you can avoid most costly dental treatment down the road.
