One of the most advanced restorative procedures available to replace missing teeth is the dental implant procedure. This option can help individuals gain a confident smile with results that are designed to look and function like natural teeth for a “real tooth” feeling.
At Eureka Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Mike Menolascino or Dr. Eric Klumb will provide a comprehensive oral evaluation to determine your candidacy for dental implants. This procedure can be incredibly important to the health of the entire mouth. If untreated, a gap left by a missing tooth can cause teeth to shift in position, impair the bite, or even lead to gum disease. Individuals will have a bone density examination to determine which type of implant will best fit their needs – either an anchored denture or a single tooth implant.
The following is a good outline of how the cost is generally determined:
- Number of teeth being replaced
- Materials being used
- Complexity of procedure
- Laboratory costs
Prospective patients should keep in mind that while some practices may offer lower costs, they may not have a dental team experienced in implant dentistry procedures. Researching potential dentists for this procedure is critical. Our dental team has been recognized for the “Top Dentists in St. Louis” award, among other individual credentials. We accept many convenient payment methods and some insurance policies may offer coverage for this procedure. Our office also works with reputable finance companies that offer low-interest, monthly payment plans to qualified applicants. Rest assured that our patients are made fully aware of the cost of their treatment before any procedures begin. Dental implant procedures have a very high success rate at our practice, and many patients find the long-term benefits of this treatment to be well worth the cost.
