One of the first things that comes to people's mind when it comes to surgical and dental procedures is the cost, and Mini Dental Implants in Prestonsburg, KY are no different. Since dental implants are historically an expensive procedure, their cost definitely causes you to pause and consider if they are right for you.
More often than not, Prestonsburg, KY residents who are interested in mini dental implants are on a limited budget, so adding additional costs can be worrisome. But with MDIs at Michael K. McKinney, DMD Dentistry, the implants can actually be up to 60% cheaper than their traditional counterparts. Here are a few reasons why.
Mini dental implants with Dr. McKinney are minimally invasive. After a small incision is made in the gum line, the implant is placed directly into the jawbone. No stitches are needed following the procedure and no downtime is required. In some cases, the MDI treatment even takes just a single visit. Placing the implant involves minimal trauma—patients can return home directly following the procedure and can return to work and other normal activities immediately.
Mini dental implants still offer stable, long-lasting results. Mini-implants require less bone for attachment than conventional implants due to their small diameter, so more patients meet the requirements for implantation. In addition, due to their smaller size, less materials are used to create the dental implant, a factor that also reduces overall cost.
Many Prestonsburg, KY men and women call Dr. McKinney for a quick MDI estimate over the phone. This is difficult to do because each patient's needs are so very different. Some need tooth extractions, while others don't. Further, some extractions are surgical in nature, while others are simple. Bone may need to be added at the extraction site for some patients, and not for others. Some patients only need partials, while others need full dentures. Without seeing each patient in the office to evaluate existing conditions, providing a mini dental implant cost "guesstimate" is not possible.
Mini Dental Implants are a safe and effective way to restore your natural-looking smile, but knowing more about the procedure and its costs is an important step in moving forward. Visit Michael K. McKinney, DMD Dentistry today for an MDI consultation and see if this innovative procedure, and its costs, is right for you.
