Dental implants are an affordable alternative to other tooth replacement options. When deciding the best way to fill your gap, it's important to consider the return on your investment in dental implant-supported teeth. Richmond Smile Center's unique technologies, techniques, and versatile payment options help to relieve any cost pressures that may have you rethinking the preferred option for tooth replacement.
The restoration is supported in one of two ways. The conventional model, whereby the new tooth is supported by surrounding teeth, and the implant approach, whereby the new tooth is supported by a titanium post surgically placed in the jawbone.
The former bridge option reportedly lasts around 5 to 7 years, but can last for 10 or more years with proper care. After the bridge has failed, you will need to spend more money on a replacement. The dental implant-supported tooth option is designed to last. You should never need a replacement.
Of course, you will still need to clean around the implant properly to prevent bacteria from accumulating, causing inflammation that can threaten the health of the implant and your mouth. However, unlike natural teeth, the implant-supported tooth does not decay. Another factor that influences the likelihood of failure and longevity is the proper placement of the implant.
At Richmond Smile Center, you can rest easy knowing that you have a highly skilled professional who has been placing dental implants for more than 30 years, Dr. Charles Martin.
Considering the Richmond Smile Center way
Dr. Martin also helps to make dental implants more affordable by offering an expedited approach to a process that can take several months. You do not need to go to several specialists, which typically increases the cost of treatment. Dr. Martin can place the implant and your new tooth in just one day. Even multiple teeth can be replaced in one day, thanks to the All-on-4 system, an alternative to conventional dentures.
Dr. Martin's team is also skilled in working with insurance companies. While many insurers may not cover dental implants, some portions of the process may be offset with insurance. Every policy and patient is different.
For those who do not have dental insurance or whose policies do not cover dental implants, Richmond Smile Center accepts most major credit cards, and extends CareCredit and Springstone patient financing. In some cases, you can be approved for financing during your visit.
