The safety, health and well-being of our mutual patients has always been our top priority. Whether this is through the care we provide or the environment of our surgical facilities. Our internal policies and procedures have always exceeded federally mandated guidelines to protect our patients and staff. Our commitment to provide your patients the safest care throughout this evolving situation is not something we take lightly.
We always have and will continue to go above and beyond to ensure that we are exceeding the highest standard of care and customer service.
Here are a few extra precautions that we are taking, but not limited to:
• Monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization.
• Following the news related to local conditions on an hourly basis.
• Increasing the frequency of our sanitation practices inside and outside our surgical facilities.
• Wiping down our waiting rooms, chairs, counters and door handles hourly.
• Providing additional hand sanitizer to patients.
• Allowing our patients to wait in their cars or outside our office and notifying them when we are ready for their appointment.
We are also asking our patients a few questions to help mitigate any potential exposures. These questions are:
• If you are a patient who has traveled outside the US within the last month
• Had contact with someone who traveled outside the US and was/is now sick
• Had contact with someone who was diagnosed with the novel coronavirus or the flu
• Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms: Temperature, Active Cough or Trouble Breathing
If you answer yes, our doctor will be informed and will take appropriate action to protect patients and staff.
The Doctors and Staff at SVII
Many people will lose at least one tooth in their lifetimes. If this ever happens to you, then it is critical to remedy the situation immediately. Dental implants are by far the best restoration method, but plenty of people are understandably concerned about the cost. It is difficult to nail down a specific number because there are numerous factors that go into your personal dental implant cost.
Location of the Implant
The position of the implant will vary depending on where in the mouth it needs to go. Our periodontist in Harrisonburg, VA may need to make certain adjustments, such as altering the angle to match your jawline. When more advanced work is necessary, the cost will go up.
Number of Implants
Getting several implants will cost more than only getting one. In the event you do need multiple implants, you should speak with our periodontist about whether you can get them all put in at the same time. Depending on your health, you may need to get the implants inserted at different times.
Need for Extractions
Some people have already lost the entire tooth. Other people will still have part of the tooth in the mouth. Our periodontist will first need to extract the structure, which comes with an additional cost.
Our team will also need to look at your jawbone’s health. The implant goes directly into the bone and needs to fuse with the bone tissue. It is possible to still get implants, but our periodontist will need to perform bone grafting first. You may also need a sinus augmentation, and either of these treatments will come with a price tag.
