Paying for Dental Implants With MassHealth

Posted on: September 23rd, 2022 | Categories: Dental Implants

Dental implants have been regarded as the preferred method for replacing missing teeth in many cases. Dental implants are preferred for their ability to restore the functionality and esthetics of the missing teeth. Not only do dental implants restore form and function, but do so for the long haul, showing long term survival rates of over 95% (with rates even higher depending on the dentist’s skill, implant brand, and patient demographics).

Given the success of dental implants, many patients are surprised to find out that many insurances don’t cover dental implants or cover them only partially, considering it a ‘cosmetic’ procedure. MassHealth for example doesn’t list dental implants under the services they cover. While the merits of calling dental implant surgery a ‘cosmetic’ or ‘elective’ procedure have been called into question for a while now, the fact remains that many patients who need dental implants have partial or no coverage.

Luckily dentists that place dental implants like Worcester Periodontics, have found ways to make dental implants more affordable. Worcester Periodontics has partnered with third-party dental payment plan providers to offer monthly payments with deferred interest. Additionally, certain parts of the dental implant procedure, such as tissue grafts, may be covered by insurance, bringing down the overall cost of the dental implant procedure.

If you want the benefits that come with replacing teeth with dental implants but have questions about your payment options, don’t hesitate to contact Worcester Periodontics and the friendly staff will be glad to help.
