Caring For Your Dental Implants: Why It’s So Important
Breaking Down The Basics
The average cost of a dental implant procedure ranges from between $1,000 and $3,000. That’s not including the potential of adding an addition crown or other implant during the procedure. That additional work could cost up to an additional $3,000 which, depending on your insurance provider? May or may not still require you to pay more than just a copayment out of pocket. This is why our experts here at North Island Dental Arts in New Hyde Park want you to be informed and take care of your dental implants.
