People lose teeth for many reasons and it’s a common problem. It can happen as a result of an accident, gum disease or other oral health problems. In fact, 69% of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth, and by age 74 more than a quarter of adults have lost all their permanent teeth. When a tooth is lost, simple tasks like eating and talking are affected, in addition to the impact on self-image. Until recently, there have not been many good options.
Unlike dentures that can be costly, uncomfortable and inconvenient, and become stained, chipped, or broken when worn for many years, dental implants can be less expensive in the long-run because of their permanent nature. In addition to being more more attractive, once implanted, they are treated like natural teeth – which means only regular maintenance is required.
What is a Dental Implant?
Made from high-grade, durable titanium, a dental implant is a cylinder-shaped post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Over a period of usually three to six months, the implant will fuse with the bone structure. After this is done and the gum tissue heals, a titanium abutment can be added to anchor a porcelain restoration to the implant.
Dental Implant Advantages
About 3 million people in the U.S. have dental implants, and another 500,000 implants are placed each year, according to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. With the aging U.S. population (by 2030, people aged 65 and older will outnumber those aged 18 and under) and tooth loss more prevalent in older populations, demand for implants is rising.
With an increasing number of dentists performing dental implant procedures and the growth of group practices and dental service organizations, implant costs are expected to go down while their popularity goes up. As a result, the US market for implants is expected to grow to exceed $1.5 billion in 2027.
Initial implant costs can range from $3,000 to $5,000 each. To address the growing demand for dental implants and help mitigate the costs, Dental Dental offers affordable and highly rated implant coverage for both groups and individuals:
Delta Dental implant coverage was named Best Overall Dental Insurance for Implants for 2022 by Investopedia.
Benefits Typically Include
Implants, abutments, implant crowns, retainers (either abutment-supported or implant-supported), removal of implant, maintenance procedures, recement and repairs. Parts of an implant may be covered under prosthodontic coverage, such as the crown, bridge or denture supported by the dental implant itself. Some plans may include waiting periods, maximums and deductibles for implants, and not all plans cover pre-existing conditions such as missing teeth.
With the growing demand for implants and the competitive job market, offering dental implant coverage can give your clients the edge to attract and retain top talent.
