Q. I’ve heard that dental implants are expensive. How much do they cost?

A. The cost of non-treatment can be considerably more expensive. Continual bone loss occurs from the wearing of full dentures (plates) and partials. This progressive loss of bone can eventually cause nerve exposure, jaw fracture and a complete inability to function with regular dentures. Correction at this point may be very expensive and can involve extensive bone grafts, which may require hospitalization and an extended recovery period. Placing implants before the bone loss becomes severe not only saves money in the long run, but also slows the bone loss process, increasing the likelihood of long-term success.

Q. How many implants do I need?

A. This depends in large part on what kind of final restoration of your mouth you want. Implant reconstruction can be with teeth that never come out or with teeth that securely attach to the implants but which can be removed to clean.

Q. Do I have to go to more than one doctor to complete my treatment?

A. Not in our office. Dr. Elliott will personally handle all aspects and phases of your treatment.
