Top 4 Reasons Not to Play Hooky – Dentist Sandy Springs

Sandy Springs dentist near meSure, regular cleanings promote good oral hygiene, but did you know these visits also screen for a multitude of diseases? Getting your teeth cleaned and having your doctor’s exam may not rank up there with an afternoon of golf or a matinee movie, but it may be well worth it for your overall health. And the pandemic? Don’t let Covid-19 cause you to develop other health issues.

4 really great reasons for your regularly scheduled cleanings:

  1. It’s an opportunity to check for Oral Cancer.

You may or may not realize that you’re screened for oral cancer during your regular dental cleaning but you are.

  1. Your gums are being checked for Gum Disease.

Gum disease is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. It can be treated and reversed if diagnosed early.

  1. Your overall health.

Studies have linked heart attacks, diabetes detection and strokes to gum disease associated with poor oral hygiene.  So a trip to see us at least every 6 months could reduce your risk of other serious health issues.

  1. Early detection of Dental Problems.

Without regular check-ups, undetected problems can lead to more serious issues like root canals, gum surgery and tooth extraction.   An ounce of prevention verses a pound of cure.

Check-ups allow us to examine your mouth and keep you on the right path.  If it’s been more than 6 months since your last check up and cleaning, call us to schedule an appointment today.  If we can be of any help or answer any questions please feel free to drop us a line.

Sandy Springs: Affordable Dental Implants

Dental implants near meThe cost of dental implants may appear high, and therefore, unaffordable to most people.  But not if you consider the beneficial differences, the time involved and the expertise of your specialist.

The range of an dental implant starts around $1,500 up to $1,800.  Anything less may be an indicator that you’re getting an inferior product or one not designed for a particular location in your mouth.  Short term the implant device may appear to be fully functional.  But if we look at the cost and the cost of other materials for dental implants compared to their operational life, the difference may be likened to the difference between Toyo’s and Michelin tires.  Here again you may get what you pay for and the initial cost may appear affordable, but in the  long term you are going to get a better result with respect to how it functions and how long it lasts if your provider installs Michelins.

The real concern for the patient is ‘where and how’ to find inexpensive quality dental implant, and most likely the driving adjective is ‘inexpensive’.  This is a result of the perception by the patient that teeth are utilitarian to their daily life.  That’s really not the case, but to put the cost into perspective let’s examine what goes into the cost of a dental implant.

Different manufacturers put different prices on similar rods made from the same material. Some manufacturers include some kind of an extra charge in the dental implant’s price for their brand name. This is a lot more esoteric and therefore harder to explain.   It’s like trying to explain the difference between Polo and Hanes T-shirts.  However, some of these manufacturers provide lifetime guarantees and replacement for failure.

In our Sandy Springs office our goal to provide a single implant for about the same cost of a 3 unit bridge.  The benefits are 1) preserving the underlying bone structure, 2) a more natural bite and 3) the ability to avoid cutting two healthy teeth to accommodate the bridged tooth.

We make the effort to do the right thing for our patients.  Please give us a call for your complimentary consultation.
