Patients who are missing teeth need to speak to a dentist about replacement as soon as possible. Without addressing the problem, patients may be putting their smile at risk for further changes. Gaps between the teeth may form as existing teeth shift out of place, requiring orthodontics and other treatments to correct. Instead, patients can speak to a Philadelphia, PA area dentist, Dr. A, about dental implants.
What is the cost of dental implants?
Dental implants require two separate treatments. The first is the placement of the implant. A referred dentist does this outside of Innovative Dental By Dr. A. This oral surgeon charges a fee for placing the implant into the jawbone. Then, patients return to their primary dentist to discuss restoration of the dental implant. Restoration may be done with a dental crown, a dental bridge, or a full denture. The cost of each of these restorations varies greatly. To obtain an accurate quote for treatment, patients need to schedule a consultation visit with Dr. A to discuss costs.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
Most patients who are missing teeth are appropriate candidates for dental implants. Patients should have:
- A healthy smile free from periodontal disease
- Sufficient bone structure of the jaw for successful placement
A consultation visit and initial examination is the best way to decide if a patient is a viable candidate.
