Many people would love to talk with an oral surgeon about potentially receiving dental implants. However, they often worry that the cost will be too much for them. This is a common misconception. In fact, affordable dental implants in The Bronx, NY, are available right now. The key is to understand all the different payment methods that can be combined to finance a dental implant investment.
Payment Option #1: Cash
Some patients who work with oral surgeons like Marlon K. Moore decide that they would rather pay for some or all of the cost of dental implants with cash. This can work well, especially if you have set aside funds for healthcare purposes. You may also be able to take money out of your health savings account, typically abbreviated as HSA, to pay for single, multiple, or full arch dental implants.
Payment Option #2: Insurance
Medical and dental insurance plans may not pay for your whole dental implant placement. Yet insurance will sometimes pay for part of the procedure. For instance, insurance may cover a portion of a bone graft if you have low bone density. An oral surgery office team can speak with your insurance provider to see if you qualify for any kind of coverage that could offset your dental implant cost.
Payment Option #3: Credit Cards
Do you have credit available through a major credit card provider? Some credit card companies offer surprisingly low interest rates, making them an attractive choice to pay for at least some of your dental implant treatment. CareCredit®, though not a standard credit card that you would use to buy consumer goods, acts like a credit card for healthcare purchases.
Payment Option #4: Third-Party Financing
A few financing companies specialize in partnering with patients to cover the cost of their dental and medical procedures. Case in point, Proceed Finance offers loans. If you qualify for the loan, Proceed Finance pays the oral surgeon on your behalf and you pay Proceed Finance over time.
