Dental implants have revolutionized modern dentistry and offered us an ability to replace missing or broken teeth. They involve a straightforward procedure that causes relatively little discomfort, and sometimes none at all. Implants really are an amazing advance in medical technology, and are as affordable as bridges and similar repairs.
Check out these short videos to learn how dental implants are used to replace teeth.
For those who like to read small print:
If you are here, that means you are either facing or experiencing life with one or more missing teeth. It is understandable that you may feel nervous and apprehensive about your situation. Perhaps you think that you are in for pain, expense, time off work or school, and that your social calendar will likely be “closed for business” for the next few months. Although I don’t know your specific situation, I have treated thousands of patients just like you. Let me assure you that the process of tooth replacement does not have to be painful or expensive and you don’t have to put the brakes on your social life.
I would like to begin our relationship by addressing your concerns, fears, and expectations, and by answering some common questions my patients express during their first visit to my office.
The first most common question is, “Is it painful?” Dental implant surgery is a surgical procedure, so some discomfort is to be expected after your surgery. However, most of my patients only experience minimal discomfort and take pain medications for only a few days. Believe it or not, some patients don’t take pain pills at all and return to work or school the very next day. Please review my Patient Testimonials page and visit Yelp.com to view what other patients have to say about my office.
The second most common question is, “How expensive are dental implants?” Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant costs about the same as replacing it with a dental bridge. We have treatment coordinators in our office to work with you to determine the best treatment for you clinically and financially, and to meet your quality of life goals.
I have found that many individuals appreciate the one-on-one approach we give to every single patient. My treatment coordinators and I will collaborate with you to determine the best course of treatment for all your specific needs.
