Left untreated, missing teeth have an undeniably negative effect on a person's quality of life. For those who are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, a number of disadvantages soon become apparent. Nutrition, as well as the ability to enjoy favorite foods, may suffer; speaking ability may be compromised; and the cosmetic ramifications - large gaps between teeth - can diminish self-esteem and confidence in one's appearance.
Making the decision to seek restorative dentistry services is truly an investment in your oral health. Offering an unparalleled level of care, Drs. Charles A. Robertson and Nicholas Perry Orchard offer help to patients interesting in restoring their smiles and bites.

Dental Implant Cost: A Closer Look
Dental implants offer an excellent method of replacing missing teeth and are not only an investment in improving the look and function of one missing tooth, but improving overall health. Missing teeth eventually lead to the deterioration of the jawbone at the trauma site and can result in shifting and loosening of adjacent teeth. The fact that dental implants are surgically embedded into the jawbone enables them to preserve the health of the jaw and gums, unlike alternative restorative treatments such as removable dentures, which do not halt the deterioration of the hard and soft tissues.
Precision and Longevity
Once it has been determined that a patient is a suitable candidate for a dental implant, Drs. Robertson and Orchard work with a network of specialists to refer out for the placement of the implant. Our practice works with a number of experienced, board-certified oral surgeons who share our common values and our commitment to professionalism, safety, and quality.
When cared for properly, dental implants can last for decades. Beginning with 3-D X-ray technology, a number of steps are taken to ensure that your implant is placed with an exacting degree of precision. Using our in-office milling machine, CEREC®, we are able to create all-porcelain crowns that are durable, look and feel natural, and can last for many years.
Learn More about Dental Implant Cost
During an initial consultation with Dr. Robertson or Dr. Orchard, you can learn more about whether you are a suitable candidate for this implant dentistry, as well as receive more information on the cost of treatment. Each patient's treatment is highly personalized, meaning an evaluation is needed to determine preliminary information that will allow for an estimate to be calculated for your care.
