Lowest Dental Implant Prices in Greater Vancouver
Apple Dental Implant Centre offers dental implants at an extremely low price point, providing some of the lowest prices available in the greater Vancouver area. While other providers may offer bargain prices as part of a temporary promotion, Apple Dental Implant Centre offers these prices on a consistent basis and has an established history of doing so.
Dental implants have traditionally been an expensive prospect because they were once placed only by certain dentists. These oral surgeons typically charge more for their services, making dental implants a pricey prospect. The cost of implant materials used to be higher as well, with prices often coming in around $5,000. Additionally, since dental implants aren’t the cheapest option for correcting dental problems, many insurance companies declined to cover them in favour of less comprehensive treatments like bridges or partial dentures.
As the technology for dental implants improved, the cost of materials came down. Better technology has also made it possible for general dentists to place implants, further trimming the cost of this treatment. Apple Dental Implant Centre purchases implants at a steep discount, getting them in bulk from Hiossen. Material costs are much higher for dentists who only place a few implants a month, but our dentists at Apple place hundreds a month, allowing us to pass along these steep savings to our patients.
