WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Permanent solution for tooth loss
Dental implants represent a common procedure of permanently replacing missing teeth without affecting neighboring teeth.
With the help of dental implants, we can fully remedy toothlessness and thus strongly improve chewing and speaking abilities as well as restore a beautiful smile. Implants can also serve as carriers of a fixed dental bridge or denture.
Dr. Schlepp works very closely with several oral surgeons and periodontists that provide the surgical component of implant planning and placement so that the very best care can be provided to each patient. Once the implant is placed and allowed to integrate, Dr. Schlepp provides the patient with all the information necessary to determine the best restorative options and restores the implant to full function with a beautiful result.
We will provide you with a treatment plan estimating your cost and any insurance benefits for dental care that you may need. Our practice requests payments at the conclusion of each visit. For patients with insurance, the estimated co-payment is requested at this time. As a courtesy, we will be pleased to submit insurance claims on our patient’s behalf. Please note that any remaining balance, after insurance payment or denial, is the patient’s responsibility to pay.
For treatment provided, our practice accepts cash, personal checks, and major credit cards, such as American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. If you need to make financial arrangements for your portion, please feel free to do so with our Office Manager, in advance of dental treatment. We will be happy to discuss payment plan options and customize a payment plan for you. Our office is also pleased to offer Care Credit, which can help you make monthly payments that fit into your budget and allow you to have the dental treatment you need performed without delay.
