Are dental implants tax deductible?

Answer

The Internal Revenue Service states that the amount paid for dental implants can be reported as a medical expense on Schedule A, Itemized Deductions. Not all taxpayers benefit from these expenses, as medical expenses have to exceed a percentage of income before they become deductible.

The U.S. Tax Code allows a deduction for expenses incurred to prevent or alleviate dental disease for the taxpayer, the taxpayer's spouse and any dependents. This includes cleanings, fillings, braces, extractions and the replacement of teeth, according to Internal Revenue Service Publication 502. Expenses that are solely cosmetic, such as whitening, are not deductible. Amounts paid or reimbursed by insurance or a Health Savings Account are not deductible.

Tax Deductions and Credits
Tax credits directly cut taxes while deductions and exemptions reduce taxable income. Income adjustments are additional deductions that do not require itemizing.
