How much do Dental Implants Cost?

The cost of a dental implant is around $1,500 up to $1,800 placed.  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 the initial cost may appear affordable, but in the  long run you are going to get a better result with how it functions and how long it lasts if your provider installs Michelins.

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.

Best Prosthodontist in Atlanta

If you are looking for a cosmetic, implant or reconstructive dental work, you should see a prosthodontist, because prosthodontics is the only specialty recognized by the ADA that is involved with esthetic and cosmetic dental restorations and implant restorations.   Dr. Novy Scheinfeld is an expert in the dynamics and esthetics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth and the science of tooth replacement.  Of the 170 thousand dentists in the country less than two (2%) percent are trained prosthodontists.  So, when your dentist refers you to a prosthodontist you should know you are in well trained hands with Dr. Scheinfeld.

Many of those referring specialists think of the prosthodontist as the “quarterback” of a dental treatment plan, the professional in the process with the big picture in mind.  She leads a team of experts to develop ideal solutions to your dental needs because ultimately she is responsible for the final restoration.

The combination of all these various disciplines rest comfortably within the purview of her training, expertise and our practice.  A comprehensive approach is the best way to get your inner confidence boosted, your personality improved and most important, the right smile.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us.

Dr. Scheinfeld received her prosthodontics degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1988.
