Missing teeth can cause severe dental health issues as well as emotional distress. We know that tooth loss can be an intimidating issue to face, but we make it much easier to manage with judgment-free care and beautifully-crafted dental implants. As a member of the International Implant Association, Dr. Muñoz is pursuing a fellowship in implantology to better serve our patients with specialized, high quality care and beautiful results.
Dental implants consist of a two-part system:
Implants are a major advancement in modern dentistry because they permanently replace missing teeth in a way that no previous dental technique could accomplish. Since implants act as artificial tooth roots, patients don’t need to worry about bone degeneration after tooth loss, and implants are often even stronger than natural teeth.
The cost of your implant procedure depends on a number of factors, including how many implants you need, where in your mouth they will be placed, and whether you need an extraction or other preparatory dental work. To discuss your needs and get an estimate, come in for a consultation with Dr. Muñoz. During your appointment, he will work with you to develop a treatment plan, discuss your budget, and let you know what the cost of your treatment will be.
Since dental implants require sufficient jawbone and healthy gums, Dr. Muñoz will need to assess your oral health to ensure that implants are a good option for you. This assessment includes a comprehensive exam and x-rays. Depending on your dental health, Dr. Muñoz will either approve you for implant surgery, suggest other preparatory work to strengthen your jawbone and gum tissue, or recommend other restorative options for tooth replacement. The best way to find out whether implants are right for you is to schedule a consultation. We can’t wait to meet you and be a part of your journey to a complete, confident smile!
