According to the American Dental Association, while 95% of people agree that regular dental visits are essential for health, only 37% actually visited the dentist in the past year. More than half of those who skipped the dentist highlighted cost concerns. The high price of dental treatments has long stood as a barrier to many seeking a healthy mouth and a confident smile. But affordable dental implants are within reach.
Enter Dr. David P. Ney, a seasoned dentist with over 25 years of experience in Harrisburg, NC. At his office, Dr. Ney offers affordable dental implants—including popular mini dental implants—as an accessible option for all.
The Necessity of Affordable Dental Implants
Dental implants can provide a reliable way to replace missing or damaged teeth, but their high costs are often too much for those on a budget.
According to a survey conducted by the Health Policy Institute of American Dental Association, cited in Forbes, the total cost of an implant and other relevant procedures range from $3,100 to $5,800—prices simply out of reach for many.
Even with dental insurance coverage, patients don’t get significant financial relief. As Dr. Ney explains, “If you’re going to spend $3, they may only give you back only $1 toward treatment.”
Affordable options are needed to help more individuals regain their oral health, improve their quality of life, and smile confidently without worrying about the financial burden.
Are Mini Dental Implants Affordable?
Mini dental implants have become a popular treatment option due to their affordability compared to traditional dental implants. In fact, they can cut the treatment costs in half. Several factors contribute to the budget-friendly nature of mini implants.
- Quicker recovery: Mini dental implants are smaller in diameter, requiring a less invasive placement procedure. This means shorter recovery times and fewer costs associated with time off work or post-surgery care.
- Fewer appointments: The entire process of mini dental implants can often be completed in a single visit, reducing the cost of multiple consultations, surgeries, and follow-ups.
- No additional procedures: Traditional dental implants usually require supplementary procedures such as bone grafts for implant placement; however, mini dental implants rarely require these additional procedures—further decreasing the overall cost of treatment.
- Lower maintenance cost: Mini dental implants have fewer components. This streamlined design reduces maintenance needs over time, minimizing long-term expenses.
How Much Do Mini Dental Implants Cost?
The cost of mini dental implants varies based on individual needs, including the number of implants required. Generally, mini dental implants are considered affordable dental implants for seniors and others, compared to traditional options. Dr. Ney provides free personalized consultations to determine the specific costs involved for each patient.
