What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants (ADA Codes) may be thought of as artificial tooth roots which allow the fabricated teeth to be firmly attached to the mouth. One may consider the jaw bone as a piece of wood and a dental implant as a screw

The average cost of placing a single dental implant ranges from $1,600 to $2,200, not including the cost of a restoration. Redd Road *
You can include in medical expenses the amounts you pay for dental treatment. This includes fees paid to dentists for X-rays, fillings, braces, extractions, dentures, etc. including artificial teeth (IRS Publication 502 Page 5 & 7)
Implants are done when one doesn’t want a bridge because it more permanent and look better even in the back of the mouth and in view of this it’s considered cosmetic.
Unfortunately, implants are not generally a covered benefit. However, it is possible that Delta would provide an allowance for the covered benefit. It’s best that the enrollee ask their dentist to submit a pre-determination to Delta so that Delta can determine the covered benefit (if any) and the enrollees responsibility for payment in advance.
The replacement of lost or stolen dentures, crown and bridge work, dental procedures and charges incurred as part of implants (placement or removal) and prosthetic devices placed on implants (fixed or removable, for example: bridges, crowns) are not covered. Smile Saver Brochure

- Why Buy Dental Insurance?
- What dental Insurance... should I buy???
- When people ask, what dental insurance plan should I buy,
The video from the dentist above says he's tempted to answer, "None of them".
But that's not a very helpful answer, so in this video the dentist attempts to give you some guidance about things to consider before buying a dental insurance plan. Keep in mind that there also are finance plans available if you decide to go that route. And, you should not be shy about negotiating with your dentist regarding his or her fee for the services that you need.
