Multiple implants are affordable for our San Francisco Bay Area patients
Tooth loss has an enormous impact on your oral health, chewing function, appearance, and your general state of wellness. It is with this in mind that Dr. Shivani Gupta has established the Peninsula Dental Implant Center. Here, we discuss the benefits that come from single or multiple implants. After your consultation in our San Carlos, CA practice, you may realize that implants are your most cost-effective option for restorative care.
Dental implants are designed for the replacement of missing roots. This design goes beyond what has been previously available because dentures and bridges focus on replacing visible structure only. Research has shown that this approach fails to meet the properties of natural teeth.
Implants are suitable for placement after natural tooth loss or extraction. These small titanium posts may replace one tooth at a time or multiple teeth either individually or by supporting a bridge or full denture. No matter how an implant is used, this prosthetic can provide stability for a lifetime.
Dr. Gupta has many years of training and experience in implant dentistry. Although she does design bridges for our patients, dental implants are ideal for those seeking natural stability and permanent restoration. One of the aspects of implants that she discusses with our patients is the cost of treatment.
Because implant treatment requires a greater investment initially, there may be the perception that this method of tooth replacement is more expensive than other options. However, the fact that implants remain stable in healthy bone and gum tissue for life creates value that can go on indefinitely. Most people treated with dentures or a dental bridge find that, at some point, modifications or full replacement becomes necessary.
At Peninsula Dental Implant Center, we are happy to look into your insurance coverage for dental implants and design a payment arrangement that makes it possible for you to receive the care you deserve.
Your mouth is an important aspect of your quality of life. If you have been affected by tooth loss, you can benefit from learning about dental implants and how they can fit into your budget. Call (650) 232-7650 for your visit with Dr. Gupta.
