Choose Between Two Options
- $999 for a titanium dental implant and a prefabricated abutment (up to a $2,100 total value)
- $1,599 for the above dental implant and abutment plus a Porcelain crown (a $1,058 value;up to a $3,158 total value))
During the implant process, the dental surgeon examines mouths before installing the titanium implant into the jawbone to act as a substitute root. The implant then heals and fuses to the jawbone over the next 3–6 months. During this time, patients can wear temporary dentures and should eat soft foods, thrilling blenders once left to accumulate dust in cupboards.
Once the area heals, the surgeon uncovers the implant and fits it with a small healing collar. For those who purchased the second option, the doctor takes impressions for the crown at this time. He attaches the abutment to the implant a few weeks later, and for those who purchased the second option, fits the porcelain crown—the replacement tooth—over the abutment. The entire process requires multiple visits over six to eight months and won’t significantly disrupt daily life. Those who don’t purchase the crown option can choose to have a crown or a Chiclet put in elsewhere.
At two locations, experienced dentists Steven H. Poulos and Sid Stevens revive smiles with veneers, implants, and orthodontia. Sedation dentistry relaxes anxious patients as the doctors restore teeth to their shipshape selves, and those opting for a full day of treatments are lavished in massage and aromatherapy. In addition to whitening, straightening, replacing, and analyzing the dreams of teeth, Poulos and Stevens craft dentures and custom antisnoring devices. Though they specialize in cosmetic dentistry, their expertise also extends to disease treatment.
