San Jose area dentist discusses the cost of dental implants
Patients located in the San Jose, California area or surrounding communities who need to replace missing teeth may feel overwhelmed at the many options that are available. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and her team of dedicated professionals at StarBrite Dental in Fremont believe in providing patients with solutions best suited for their specific needs.
Replacing teeth can be achieved with one of three options:
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
Each option has its own benefits and rewards for patients, but there is no “one size fits all” solution for every individual who walks into our practice. By scheduling a consultation appointment with Dr. Munira Lokhandwala, patients can discuss their needs with a professional.
Dental implants are titanium roots that are replaced within the jaw bones to resemble a tooth or a group of teeth. A screw is inserted into the gums and into the jaw bone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prestices including crowns dentures and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking no one will know you had surgery. There is approximately a 95 percent success rate for all implants with modern advancements in dentistry some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.
For many of our patients, dental implants are a great option. Dental implants are titanium posts that Dr. Munira Lokhandwala surgically places into the bone of the jaw. These restorations are known for their strength and durability, lasting decades, as long as patients maintain their oral health and wellness with proper care and regular dental visits. Dental implants are restored in several different ways as well. They can be covered with a dental crown to replace a single tooth, anchor a dental bridge on one or both ends, and may also be used for stabilizing full dentures.
The Cost of Dental Implants
Patients concerned about cost are welcome to talk to our dental team about ways to make dental implants more affordable for them. In many cases, patients can work out a payment plan and make monthly payments towards their restorations. This allows many patients to be able to afford the dental work they need for a healthier, more beautiful smile without breaking the bank. Patients also find that this investment in a long-term option saves them money over time versus considering less costly solutions.
I broke my tooth in August and when I started to research the best solution and price I was dismayed by the high cost of a Dental Implants. After a long search I found Dr. Lokhandwala on the Internet. After calling and talking with her I felt comfortable enough to have her preform the implant procedure. At that time I lived in Pacifica and was more than willing to drive all the way to Fremont due to the cost savings. And I couldn’t have made a better choice. The facilities are excellent, the staff is wonderful and Dr. Lokhandwala is superb. I now have my smile back and couldn’t be happier. I also plan to have some cosmetic work done in the near future and I’m looking forward to visiting Dr. Lokhandwala and her staff again.Emlyn B. Read More Reviews
