Does Medicaid Or Medicare Cover Dental Implants?

Here’s one question we get a lot, “ Does Medicaid or Medicaid Cover Dental Implants?”

And the quick answer is no.

Medicaid is a government funded program that was set up to provide essential medical services for people with low incomes. It covers basic treatments such as tooth extractions and their replacement with partial or full dentures.

Medicaid takes the view that only the least expensive alternative treatment will be covered, rather than the best possible treatment.

Medicare is a government funded program for people over 65 years of age. And most routine dental care isn’t covered by their most popular plan Original Medicare (Parts A & B).

This is very frustrating for patients and dental providers like us who have known for decades that an unhealthy mouth can affect other areas of the body leading to other serious health problems like heart disease, mental disorders and death.

New Day Smile Dental Group understands how important it is to be able to restore your dental health and your confidence with a long-term solution. That’s why we offer third-party financing options and work with you on payment plans to fit your budget.

Many patients are surprised to learn that a full upper or lower jaw of teeth can be completely restored with an implant supported prosthetic for as little as $175 per month with approved financing.

Everyone’s situation is different, so it’s highly recommended that you schedule a free consultation at one of our New Day Smile locations to help determine which treatment is best for you.

During your free consultation, you’ll receive X-rays, a 3D CT Scan, dental exam and recommended treatment plan.
