You have several options for a missing tooth, whether you are missing one tooth or several teeth. You can get a bridge, partial, a single implant, or even an implant denture. All these options range in price and have different processes and longevity. At Higginbotham Family Dental, we have different payment options to make sure you can afford the dental care you need. The best way to find out which option and price range is best for you, we suggest you schedule a free cosmetic consultation by booking an appointment online at any office in Arkansas, Tennessee, and Missouri.
The option that provides the best long-term quality of life is an implant. We have very skilled dentists to place implants right in our office, so you don’t have to be referred out to another office. We want our patients to be able to get all the treatment they require in one place. The implant is placed in your jaw bone where the missing tooth once was and is completed in one visit. Our patients leave with the implant in place with little to no pain, and some can even go back to work after their appointment. We can place implants at most of our offices. All implant procedures are usually anywhere from three or more appointments before they are all completed.
Many people that are missing teeth choose a bridge option. Most insurances cover bridge treatment, and it is a little more affordable than an implant. Just like an implant, a bridge can cover one or more missing teeth. The price will depend on how many teeth you are replacing. A Bridge may not last as long as an implant but will last for a long time as long as it is taken care of properly with professional cleanings and exams at your dental office.
A partial is another option for one or more missing teeth. This is by far the cheapest option to replace teeth. As long as you still have a few healthy teeth left to act as anchors for your partial to hold on to, then this can be an option for you. Partials are removable, so they are not permanent. If you don’t have dental insurance, we have a Discount Dental Plan you can sign up to be a member of to save on costs as well as payment plan options to get you started on your treatment right away.
