Affordable Dental Implants – Sandy Springs and Chamblee

Implant dentist near me Chamblee Sandy Springs BrookhavenThe cost of dental implants may appear high, but the price continues coming down.  And if you consider the benefits, the time involved and the expertise of your specialist implants are worth every penny.  To help you understand and appreciate the cost let’s explore the aspects of price and how different dental implants may differ depending on various factors.

If the price is too good to be true? It probably is.

The cost of a dental implant ranges from around $1,500 up to $5,000.00.  Anything less may be an indicator that you’re getting an inferior product or an implant that’s not designed for a particular location in your mouth.  Short term the implant device may appear to be fully functional, but operationally it won’t last.  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 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 an inexpensive quality dental implant, and most likely the driving adjective is ‘inexpensive’.  This perception by the patient is 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.

4 Factors that Drive the Cost of Dental Implants:

The Material:
The traditional materials – prices of cobalt-chromium alloy and titanium are not the same.  Implants from cobalt-chromium (CC) alloy rods are cheaper than comparable titanium implants, but when it comes to zirconium dioxide, then cost of a dental implant may appear to be cost prohibitive to the patient.  However, depending on where the implant is being placed, you may end up with a less than satisfactory result with the less expensive CC implant.  You just won’t know it for a while.

The Size:
This variable is a significant factor.  The bigger the implant, the more material, the more it costs, but also the more it may do.  Also, special coatings applied to the surface of the implant, contributing to better osseo-integration with the bone, will affect the cost of the dental implant.

The Manufacturer:
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.

Finally, it may depend on where your dentist gets his implants from.  And this factor may be a function of how motivated your provider is in providing you with the best implant material for the least amount of cost to you.  Some of that may just end up being economies of scale by your provider.  Does your provider have contacts directly with manufactures in China or Israel, where the dental implant cost can be significantly reduced, while the indirect purchase of dental implants from U.S dental suppliers may ratchet up the price?

A lot of your choice and cost may depend on the choice of your provider.   It’s not to say the more you spend the better you will be.  Rather, a reputable practitioner, who is truly trained in the placement and restoration (and this may be two providers), may be a significant factor in what you end up with and what it costs.  Trust and reputation are the more difficult factors to define for the patient. Call us to see if you are an implant candidate.

Sandy Springs | Chamblee: Cosmetic Dentists, what?

Chamblee Sandy Springs dentist near meThe trend these days is dentists calling themselves cosmetic dentists, regardless of the fact there is no such specialty in dentistry.   To the contrary of this trend, all dentistry is cosmetic.   I don’t know anyone who took the ‘ugly’ teeth class in dental school.  Regardless, the fact remains that the majority of dentist are general dentist, and marketing themselves as ‘cosmetic dentists’ is an ethics violation of the ADA[1].   Their undergraduate degrees are either a DDS or DMD as result.

Not one of them has a ‘cosmetic specialty’ in dentistry because it doesn’t exist.   The ADA only has recognized nine (9) post dental degree specialties and cosmetic dentistry is not one of them.  These specialties range in one to six years of advance training beyond dental school that results in additional certifications considered experts within their fields of dentistry.  These ADA specialties are:

Dental Public Heath, Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, Radiology and Surgery, Orthodontics, Endodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontics, and the least known, but the closest to what would be considered a cosmetic dentist, Prosthodontics.

Prosthodontics: (crown, bridge, and implants) A Prosthodontist has a dental specialty license pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance and health of patients with clinical conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues using biocompatible substitutes. Most dentists are not trained prosthodontic graduates of a dental school – rather they take short continuing education and utilize trial and error experience to be able to understand how size, shape, color and symmetry all work together to create what a prosthodontists is trained in their post graduate work.   On the other hand, the prosthodontist is trained at a university to create the smile that implements the use of veneers, crowns, bridges and the increasingly more common procedure of dental implants to ensure that the right smile is achieved, both functionally and aesthetically beautiful.  If anyone has a specialty in cosmetic dentistry, it would be the prosthodontist.  So when you are seriously looking for a cosmetic dentist, look for a prosthodontist.

If you are in need of a cosmetic dentist[2], we are here to serve you.

Sandy Springs Dentist: Success Rates for Dental Implants

Dental Implant dentists near meDental implants are among the most successful procedures in dentistry today.  Given the complexity of the procedure, there are a lot of variables that come into play.  Yet studies show a five-year success rate of 95 percent for lower jaw implants and 90 percent for upper jaw implants.[1]

One factor that impacts your success is your pre-existing health conditions.[2] Another is the location of the missing tooth.  Also, smokers statistically face a higher risk of implant failure. Other high risk candidates are patients with diabetes, hemophilia or immune deficiencies and in rare instances, patients with chronic bruxism.

So as long as one engages in good oral hygiene, i.e. brushing, flossing, and regular hygiene procedures, the chances of inflammation or swelling of the tissues surrounding the implant should be avoidable.

Key factors in minimizing dental implant complications are the selection of an experienced prosthodontist and implantologist who specialize in implant dentistry, careful pre-operative treatment planning and proper after-care and oral hygiene.   One of the benefits of a multi-specialist practice like ours is everything is under one roof including periodontal after-care.  If you would like to know whether you are a candidate for implants please feel free to call for a free consultation.

Dentist Brookhaven: What you probably don’t know about Cosmetic Dentists

Brookhaven dentist near meIt seems to be prevalent in that most dentists these days are calling themselves cosmetic dentists, but there is no cosmetic specialty in dentistry.   And quite frankly, all dentistry is cosmetic.   I don’t know anyone who took the ‘ugly’ teeth class in dental school, because it doesn’t exist.  Regardless, the fact remains that the majority of dentists are general dentists, but call themselves ‘cosmetic dentists’.   They all have undergraduate degrees with either a BA or BS and at least four years of dental school with either a DDS or a DMD as the result.  But not one of them has a ‘cosmetic specialty’ in dentistry.   Those dentists who choose to make the claim do so by virtue of deciding to focus on cosmetics in their general practices.   The American Dental Association (ADA) only has nine recognized post dental degree dental specialties and cosmetic dentistry is not one of them.  These specialties range in one to six years of advance training beyond dental school.  At the end of their post doctorate degree, these dentists receive additional certifications in their respective specialties, thus becoming what should be considered experts within their fields of dentistry.   Some are either board eligible or board certified.  These ADA specialties are:
