Ideally, a person is able to keep their teeth healthy, and intact throughout their life. However, there are many scenarios that lead to missing teeth. This is why it is important to understand what replacement teeth options you have available. Dr. Heidi Browne and Dr. Eddy Crowley are both trained to provide dental implants and many other types of replacement teeth options at our dental office located in Helena, Montana. Rarely is there only one treatment option when it comes to your dental care. In many cases, you may have multiple treatment options that fit your needs. Options can be overwhelming!
That is why we recommend receiving a consultation with your dentist to allow them to evaluate, discuss, and answer all of your questions to help you find what option is best for you. At Montana Roots Dental Care, we want to make sure that you are fully educated about the benefits and costs of all options.
Replacing damaged or missing teeth can oftentimes be a big decision financially. Depending on what type of dental insurance you have, the cost of procedures can vary greatly. For this reason, we provide options for financing and payment plan options for all of our procedures, so that you can get the care you need today.
What Options Do I Have To Replace A Missing Tooth?
If you are missing a tooth, it is important to understand the pros and cons of the options you have. Once you receive a consultation from Dr. Browne or Dr. Crowley, they are able to give you a recommendation on which procedures are possible based on your particular case. Then, depending on the amount of time and money you are willing to invest in the end result, you can decide what makes that most sense for you.
Some of the replacement teeth options Dr. Heidi Browne and Dr. Eddy Crowley can provide include:
3 Things To Consider When Getting Your Tooth Replaced
- Each replacement tooth option will have different longevity in the length of time it will last.
- Different procedures require more time than others. For example, sometimes getting an implant can require 3-6 months of allowing the jaw to receive the implant.
- The cost of each procedure varies. It is important to make sure you ask your dentist to give you the total out-of-pocket cost to you after going through your insurance.
How Much Does The Consultation Cost?
- Consults are usually free for our patients. However, in some cases, a patient may have extenuating circumstances that require more time to diagnose and evaluate. For example, a patient may have severely inflamed gums because of gum disease that will require a more thorough investigation to determine the best course of action.
- Also by law, all dentists are required to have completed a full exam in order to provide you with medical advice. So if you are not currently a patient of record, you will need to pay for a new patient exam prior to receiving a free consult on what replacement teeth option makes the most sense for you.
