Affordable Dental Implants in Atlanta
Many of my patients ask this question, and I understand that they want to be sure of the financial commitment they are considering. Instead of that question, I wish they were asking me “Can I afford not to get a dental implant procedure?”
If you lose a tooth, or are having one pulled, you don’t have a lot of time to spend pondering these questions, so do your research now so you will be informed.
The open hole left after a tooth is gone will heal, but the bone around the missing tooth will begin deteriorating. This can lead to a myriad of problems, including extensive repair before an implant can be placed. Treated right away, the implant procedure will not require additional treatments or additional costs.
Every patient is unique and every treatment plan is different. I give my patients a thorough consultation, including x-rays to determine the scope of repair. I then prepare a custom treatment plan, with patient input. We can also discuss a payment plan, once we know what needs to be done to protect the patient’s oral health and smile.
Teeth Are Vital to Overall Health
When you consider how vital teeth are to your overall health, the cost of dental implants are priceless. Losing teeth can affect your self-esteem, cause speech problems, interfere with eating and chewing, cause remaining teeth to weaken, move and incline. People with missing teeth often have anxiety and are self-conscious, avoid going out in public, refuse to smile. Missing teeth can cause stiff jaws and headaches, and even change the way your face looks!
With something as important as your health and good looks, you want to make sure you are being treated by an experienced, state of the art, professional. Cutting corners by shopping price instead of expertise is not a wise idea, and probably won’t save money. I have had to do many revisions in my practice because implants weren’t placed correctly, or infection set in. Avoid a clinic that has same day results—cutting corners and time puts you at risk. You want to be treated by a qualified professional who will take the time to treat you with care and competence, as a valued patient, not a commodity.
