If you are considering full mouth reconstruction or need to restore one or more teeth, dental implants may be for you. Dental implants are generally regarded as the best treatment option as they give you full functionality, just as if you had naturally healed teeth again. These teeth are surgically implanted into your jaw bone. You don’t have to remove them for cleaning every night as you do with dentures. They work just as naturally as your real teeth but are perfectly restored.
A More Affordable, More Comfortable Approach
We take a strategic approach to our cosmetic dentistry treatments that save our patients hundreds of dollars.
First, we charge only for the amount of anesthesia time needed. Most oral surgeons charge for the full 60 minutes, even though considerably less time is usually required.,
Second, we base our fees on a fair and reasonable understanding of our costs and value of the service provided — not the recommended amounts listed in the “Fee Schedule” book which most oral surgery and dental offices use.
Third, if your dental implants are covered by dental insurance, we do not allow that policy to dictate your needs. Most insurance companies will not cover commonly used extraction codes, and they also will “review” anesthesia coverage.
This results in more expensive care that does not keep your comfort in mind. We instead do everything we can to make your experience comfortable and more affordable. That is why we are able to offer more affordable dental implants than you can find from other care providers.
