When I meet with a patient to discuss their treatment and the options available, I have to explain to them what we recommend, and then we have to understand what is economically reality for them? What's real for them? And that's important, because if they only can afford a certain amount, then we need to see what can be done for that.
For example, if their teeth are all broken out on the front and they need to find a job, well maybe implants are not the case for them. Maybe a Snap-on smile would be good for them. Maybe someone's missing one tooth in the front. Maybe they just need a single implant. Maybe they need a flipper, which is an economic way to replace a tooth.
Some people have insurance. Most of our patients don't. Actually over 50% of our patients don't, and they still manage to get their dental work done, and we make it happen.
Regardless, whichever your situation, I can look at both ways. We can look at a way that will help you achieve your goals, whether that be starting out slow or starting out fast. Some people come in and do the complete remodel. Some people start off with a simple filling. We have a lot of different options, and I'd be happy to discuss them with you.
