Am I A Candidate For Dental Implants?
Dental implants are for people who are missing one tooth or who are missing several or all their teeth. Dental implants are for patients who are healthy over-all and have healthy bone structure whether they are young or old. Dr. Brent Moses will perform a comprehensive exam to make sure you qualify for dental implants in his Virginia Beach dentist office.
Why are dental implants the preferred method to replace missing teeth?
Dental implants are the closest thing available to your natural teeth if you are missing teeth. Dental implants are a long-lasting investment in your overall health and may help to prevent the need for further advanced dental care. Dental implants help to provide structural, functional support while enhancing the aesthetics of your smile.
Will I have to see a specialist?
Most likely not. In many cases, Dr. Moses will be able to surgically place the dental implant in our Virginia Beach dentist office. While many dentists restore dental implants, Dr. Moses offers complete treatment from the surgical placement of the implant through the cosmetic restoration. The Bayside Implant & General Dentistry team will handle your insurance, consultation, surgery, recovery, and the bonding of the final restoration. There are some cases where you may have to visit a local oral surgeon or periodontist to coordinate the surgical phase of treatment.
How much do dental implants cost?
The cost of dental implants varies based on the condition of the individual patient. Things to consider include bone health, condition of neighboring teeth and number of dental implants to be placed.
Bayside Implant & General Dentistry in Virginia Beach offers flexible payment options including financing to help with the cost of dental implant treatment. We will review all of the details including the cost of your implant procedure and payment options prior to treatment.
How long does it take to replace teeth using dental implants?
Each of our patients is different. Dr. Moses will first perform a thorough evaluation to determine if you qualify for dental implants, how many implants you will need and if any other procedures need to be done first. After that, Dr. Moses will provide you with a detailed treatment plan that includes the estimated time to complete the entire process. It can be as short as a few months, or more than a year for more complex conditions.
