Can I Really Get a FREE Dental Implant Consultation?
Yes, the consultation is free. Dental by Design’s team is happy to provide you with a treatment plan for no obligation.
We want everyone who visits us to feel safe on their journey to a perfect smile, and that includes having clear expectations. Dental implants are a large investment in yourself-in both time and money. Many of our clients benefit from having a detailed picture of the process to prepare for it.
What Happens During My FREE Dental Implant Consultation?
To help determine if you qualify for implants, our dentist will examine your oral health, which will involve a detailed image of your whole mouth, and ask about your overall health including medications, existing conditions, and allergies.
Traditional implants require oral surgery; whole body health history, including medications and allergies, is needed by the implant dentist and anesthesiologist. They want to ensure that your surgery is safe, that none of their planned sedation or methods will interfere with any current medications, and overall help your surgery and recovery be as smooth as possible.
Implants are placed into the bone and need to be surrounded by enough of it to be confident that your physiology will remain sound under chewing forces. The bony crest that teeth roots are embedded in needs to be thick enough to accommodate a small titanium post. The post acts as a tooth root, and it needs bone around it to the side, as well as below.
If your mouth is lacking in bone, you may need a mini implant instead, a prerequisite bone graft for traditional implants, or both a bone graft and mini implants in severe cases.
We Start With a 3D Oral Exam
An oral scanner creates an image file that is like a panorama of your entire mouth. Our dentists can analyze and work with what it shows, guided by both their experience and state-of-the-art computer software. The scanner is fast, safe, and provides a detailed map of your whole mouth.
Next, We Work Together to Create a Plan
Your dental goals are important to us and help define the successful outcome of your treatment. You will have different implant needs and considerations for supporting dentures and bridges than you will for a single tooth.
Where the implant may be located also affects exactly which size and angle of the implant to choose. The lower jaw has more bone density than the bone your upper teeth are planted in. Implants for upper teeth need to avoid a lot of nerves and typically may require a sinus lift (a regular procedure to add bone mass above your upper arch of teeth).
We can also help you decide between implants and alternative services if they exist for your treatment goal. Dental by Design is a one-stop shop with many specialists in one clinic, meaning that we can provide diverse dental services. Creating an improved and dazzling smile for you is what makes us tick.
We can take into account your oral hygiene habits to recommend a solution that you can commit to maintaining.
We Can Also Talk About the Expected Cost of Treatment
The world is changing, and while supply chains are recovering, prices have been fluctuating in all facets of our clients’ lives. We understand that it is more important than ever to provide detailed and clear estimates for all of our services.
Dental by Design’s staff all strive for transparency and efficiency. We want each of our clients to leave our clinic feeling safe, and that includes knowing what to expect financially.
If You Need a Payment Plan
We accept most major dental insurance plans and credit cards. Our staff will be happy to help you with paperwork, and we can build your treatment plan around what your insurance will cover. We can work with you and let you know what your various options are.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
Dental implants have a wide range in price because those who place them have varying skills, and each patient has specific needs. Dental implants are composed of titanium alloy, which can be expensive. The type of implant can also impact the cost. The type of implant is based on the location and scope of the teeth that are being replaced.
