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 recently lost a tooth or plan to have one pulled, don’t waste time pondering these questions. Stay informed. Do your research.
Over time, the open hole left after a tooth is gone heals. However, the bone around the missing tooth will begin deteriorating. This leads to a myriad of problems, including extensive repair before we can place an implant. 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. Once we know what needs to be done to protect the patient’s oral health and smile we’ll talk payment plans.
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, and interfere with eating and chewing. It can also 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 treatment from 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 provided many revisions in my practice due to implants not being placed correctly, or getting infected. Avoid a clinic that has same day results—cutting corners and time puts you at risk. You want treatment from a qualified professional who will take the time to treat you with care and competence, as a valued patient, not a commodity.
