Dr. Collins Dental Math - Compare this offer with typical fees of $1900 for each implant, $800 for each abutment post, and $1600 for an abutment supported crown, a total of $4300 for a similar case. An implant is less invasive than drilling on adjacent teeth to place a three tooth bridge, and far more comfortable than an extraction. An implant looks and feels like your real teeth, and can take more stress than a natural tooth root. If you amortized $3299 for an implant and crown over three years it is less than $100 per month. Could you put a value on the chewing function you gain, and the confidence you enjoy when speaking or smiling? Implants can last a lifetime, and they help to keep your jaw from shrinking under a bridge or denture - the math only gets better.....
Implant-Supported Dentures - Dentures can be problematic when the part of the jaw bone that supported teeth atrophies under a denture. Upper dentures can cause gagging problems. Muscles of the lips, cheeks, tongue and floor of the mouth attach to the sides of the jaws. Dentures can "trip" when they compete for position with these muscles. For these, and many other reasons, patients who must have a denture appreciate support and anchorage from implants. We use special "precision attachment" systems with implants that allow a denture to snap in to place, where it is anchored until you want it to come loose for cleaning. Implants can also help to maintain bone height under a denture.
Mini-Implants - Some patients do not have enough bone height or width to receive conventional implants. We offer "mini-implants" that are small enough to fit where conventional implants will not. These implants are approved by the FDA for immediate loading, which means they can be used under an existing denture to provide anchorage the same day they are placed. These are also the most affordable implants - we can often place a set of four mini-implants to anchor an existing denture for less than $2400!
We provide comprehensive implant care in our office. Dr. Collins has completed exhaustive continuing education in implant care. He co-directed the AAID Implant Maxi-Course at OHSU, a 27-day program that covered every implant topic in depth. We perform a very thorough work-up for every case, and every patient is given choices for implant care and alternatives. We design every case from the ground up. Implant dentistry is a prosthetic (restorative) discipline with a surgical component. Dr. Collins began placing his own implants in 1986, so he could ensure that the implants are well suited to support restorations like dentures, crowns, or bridges.
