Farragut area patients ask about the cost of dental implants
Many restorative options are used to repair the smile after tooth loss. Farragut area patients who visit Dr. Pablo Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts will be introduced to many different methods of addressing imperfections of the smile, including the loss of teeth from disease, trauma, infection, or large areas of decay. Some methods of repair may include dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants.
Dental implants are the primary solution for many patients as they are a long-term option. Many patients who visit Sequoyah Dental Arts for tooth replacement options want restorations that do not require specific care and attention every day. They want a solution that is permanently placed into the smile and functions just like a natural tooth. For many, the investment in dental implants is well worth the upfront cost.
Patients are often worried about the cost of dental implants. They may feel as though it is a lot of money to spend on a single restoration. However, it is a wonderful investment. Though the upfront cost if often more than alternative solutions including bridges and dentures, it is only incurred once. Dental implants typically last a lifetime, so the “value” of the implant over the years is much more than dentures and bridges, which may need to be adjusted or replaced regularly. The cost of these restorations can add up to much more than dental implants over time.
Dr. Pablo Foncea wants to work with patients to determine if they are appropriate candidates before discussing the expected cost for treatment from start to finish. Dental implants require patients to have enough jawbone structure for surgery to be successful. X-rays and a physical examination can help him find out who is eligible for this treatment and whether or not bone-grafting procedures can be done to build up the jawbone for successful results.
Dr. Pablo Foncea and the team of Sequoyah Dental Arts are excited to invite new patients to their practice for restorative treatments such as dental implants. Call today to book an examination appointment.
