Making Dental Implants Affordable for All Income Levels

Mount Dora’s Smile Design dentist, Dr. Dhiren Agrawal, is on a mission to help patients of all income levels afford dental implant treatment to replace missing teeth and to replace failing teeth for which other treatment is not the best choice. Among his educational achievements is completion of implant surgery training at the Center for Dental Implants in Miami, Florida. And, he is an active member of the International Implant Association.

“Dental implant treatment has come down in cost due to the predictability of today’s materials and methods,” says Dr. Dhiren Agrawal of Smile Design Mount Dora. “And, because many of the dentists in Smile Design locations throughout Florida, have become skilled at performing all the related procedures in their own office, our patients don’t have to go to more than one doctor to have the site prepped, the implant inserted, and the restoration placed on the implant.”

Dental implants will fuse with your surrounding bone tissue, becoming permanently anchored in your jawbone. Once your bone and the implants have integrated, they will support a restoration that will never slip out of place. Implants can hold a crown, bridge, or denture, depending on your needs.

When asked how affordable implants are, Dr. Agrawal, provided these examples. “A new patient came in last week with a quote from another dentist for replacement of her traditional multi-unit upper bridge with an implant retained bridge. She needed treatment but couldn’t afford the price quoted. I will be able to predictably complete this same treatment with highest quality materials for half the cost. She was delighted, and we have already placed the needed implant. In my office, single tooth replacement with an implant and crown usually can be achieved for $2,500 to $3,500. The higher end of that range includes a tooth extraction and osseous graft at time of extraction to fill the emptied root socket. At Smile Design locations throughout Florida, payment plans are available to meet all financial needs.” Give your local Smile Design office a call to schedule a consultation to learn about implant treatment for you and receive a no obligation quoted fee.
