Payment in a Cinch: Why Financing Is Easier Than You Think

Dental implants are becoming a real option for more people in Central Florida. Statistics show that dental implants have a success rate of 98% or higher and that titanium-based dental implants provide years of benefits for patients. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry says that over three million Americans have already chosen dental implant treatment and that another half-million are doing so each and every year!

With dental implant treatment, laser periodontal therapy, and bite adjustment procedures patients are understandably concerned about their financing options. In other words, you want to know how much this is all going to cost. Fortunately, at Central Florida Periodontics and Implantology you can rest assured that you’re getting the best quality care, professional yet friendly, at an affordable price.

Dr. Sevor’s office accepts many different forms of payment including major credit cards, cash, personal checks, and money orders. In addition, you can choose to pay in two different kinds of ways—you can pay once at the time of your treatment or, alternatively, go with an extended payment plan. The extended payment plan that Central Florida Periodontics and Implantology uses is called Care Credit, and it can make financing much easier than you might at first think.

Extended Payment Plan with Care Credit 

Extended payment plans are designed for the needs of patients who require one or more visits to complete their periodontal or implant treatment. More than one visit is not unusual at all for dental implants, so an extended payment plan might be an option worth considering if you’re a candidate for titanium-based dental implants and have consulted with Dr. Sevor about your medical history and candidacy for dental implants already.

For treatments that require extended visits, like periodontal surgeries or dental implants, Care Credit might be an option worth exploring. Care Credit is a healthcare credit card that’s designed specifically for the health and wellness needs of patients in the 21st century. Care Credit is a way to pay for multiple visits to your periodontist with one manageable monthly payment. Dr. Sevor’s office accepts Care Credit, and you’ll find Care Credit accepted by nearly a quarter-million suppliers of healthcare services nationwide.

Personal Loans and Credit Cards Options 

The nice thing about taking out a personal loan to pay for your treatment is that you can work with your bank to spread out the repayment. Banks and credit unions are usually more than willing to work with people who need a quick financial lift. They’ll work with you to find the repayment schedule and monthly repayment amount that works for your needs and the needs of your family. You’ll get upfront interest rates that won’t balloon as long as you continue to make your payments on time as your progress through your multiple periodontal visits.

Dr. Sevor’s Office Works with PPO Insurers 

Much of the time, you can cover some or all of your periodontal treatment with a preferred provider organization (PPO). That’s the kind of insurance that Dr. Sevor’s office accepts. At this time Dr. Sevor’s practice does not accept HMO or DMO insurance, although those might help you defray the cost of other dental procedures. Dr. Sevor’s practice does accept most kinds of PPO insurance, though, and insurance coordinators can help ensure that your periodontal or implant services are covered.

The professionals at Central Florida Periodontal and Implantology can also work directly with PPO insurers to get your claim filed and attempt to get the highest amount of coverage available. There are really a lot of options out there for paying for your upcoming dental implant treatment. Contact Dr. Sevor to find out more.
