Are advertisements for low cost implants real? Scottsdale Periodontist Dr. Lewis Robinson 

It is true that unlike other dental treatments, the cost of dental implants is affected by so many different factors that rarely two cases are exactly the same. Another cause of confusion is the fact that the final dental implants cost is the total cost of many different procedures that sometimes are performed by different dental professionals.

A professional dental implant dentist will give you a treatment cost for implants only after a thorough examination and evaluation of all your individual treatment needs.

Only then the implant dentist can diagnose other existing dental health conditions, develop a treatment plan, calculate the necessary work to be performed and provide a final treatment cost for dental implants. Do not trust dental implant cost estimations given by phone or in the internet, or advertisements for low cost dental implants.

The average cost of dental implants in U.S. is around $3,000 for a single implant in a patient with good dental health and jaw bone structure, but it may vary significantly up to +/- 50%

Teeth Grinding (Bruxism) Can Be Treated: Dr. Bradley Briggs Scottsdale Arizona

Bruxism is the term that refers to an incessant grinding and clenching of the teeth, unintentionally, and at inappropriate times. Bruxers (persons with bruxism) are often unaware that they have developed this habit, and often do not know that treatment is available until damage to the mouth and teeth has been done. Damage caused by bruxism often includes the following symptoms. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include:

  • abraded teeth
  • facial pain
  • oversensitive teeth
  • tense facial and jaw muscles
  • headaches
  • dislocation of the jaw
  • damage to the tooth enamel, exposing the inside of the tooth (dentin)
  • a popping or clicking in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ)
  • tongue indentations
  • damage to the inside of the cheek
  • sleep apnea

The symptoms of bruxism may resemble other conditions or medical problems. Consult a dentist or your physician for a diagnosis.
