Treatment Options Help Manage Costs
In many cases, there’s more than one way to treat problems. For example, if you have missing teeth, dental implants might be an ideal treatment. They are the most natural, comfortable, and functional treatment for missing teeth. But dental implants can be expensive and there are other, less expensive ways to replace missing teeth, such as a dental bridge or removable partial denture. Or perhaps your teeth might need some extensive treatment to restore your mouth to complete health. In this case, to ease any strain on your finances, we can implement a phased treatment plan. This really is just a series of treatment steps that can return your teeth to a healthy state while staying within a reasonable budget. The same is true for dental crowns. These can be hard on anyone’s budget, especially someone who doesn’t have dental insurance. When you visit with, we’ll give you an honest explanation of whether a crown is your only choice or whether other options are available to you. In some cases, your cost can also me made more manageable by what we call 'phased treatment'. It usually involves a patient who, perhaps because of fear or anxiety, has avoided the dentist for years on end. As a result, they are faced with a great deal of expensive procedures.
