Dental implants are the gold standard in modern dentistry for the replacement of one or more missing teeth. While patients may be concerned with the initial investment, it definitely should not be considered financially prohibitive. In fact, dental implants may require more upfront with regards to time and expense, but most patients find the long-term benefits to be well worth it. Each situation varies from person to person, which is why Dr. Don Mungcal and the staff at Downtown Dental suggest consultations for patients to evaluate tooth replacement options. Dental health is an important part of the overall health of patients, and the appropriateness of each treatment should be carefully considered. Patient health, lifestyle, age, and budget are all aspects that contribute to determination of the most suitable care for patients. Once the right treatment plan is developed, our staff assists patients with insurance coverage, as well as securing reasonable financing options.
For the most effective evaluation, patients should choose the practice that can provide the best dental implant experience. While there are many providers that do dental implants, we offer aspects to this procedure not found in all the other practices. Over 15 years of experience is one of the most comforting reasons to select Downtown Dental for your dental implants. We also integrate a CT scan into planning the most ideal implant positioning, which may avoid unnecessary bone grafting. This can be effective in eliminating a lot of hassle and expense for patients.
Implants are effectively used to permanently secure a replacement for one tooth, in place of bridges for multiple teeth, or to stabilize partials and dentures with a limited number of strategically-placed implants. Implants can be adapted to many situations to restore natural appearance and function. Once the procedure is completed, osseointegration occurs over a brief period, and the permanent restorations are placed. As simple as that, patients are generally able to enjoy the results for a lifetime. While other replacement options may need adjustments or replacement over time, patients with implants generally require little intervention with the most natural tooth replacement option available.
