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 ask for dental implants when they require a tooth replacement. The reason is that implants are one of the most natural-looking restorations available. In fact, once a permanent crown is adhered to the top of an implant, no one will be able to distinguish your restoration from your natural teeth. One thing patients are often concerned about is the dental implant cost in Harrisonburg, VA. Our periodontist will go over all the factors with you and offer an estimate before beginning work.
1. Number of Implants Required
Someone needing several dental implants will naturally have to pay more than someone just getting one. More materials have to be used for your treatment, and our periodontist has to invest more time. When multiple teeth need to be replaced, All-on-4® might be brought up as an option.
2. Jaw Bone Density
Since implants go directly into the jaw bone, that foundation needs to be strong. If the bone is weakened, then you will need a bone graft before the implants are placed. This extra procedure increases the overall cost. Jaw bone starts to deteriorate as soon as a tooth is lost, so it is in your best interest to seek a replacement as soon as a tooth is lost.
3. Presence of Gum Disease
A dental implant procedure will not be successful if you presently have gum disease. Our periodontist will check your gums thoroughly to see if there are any signs of gum disease. If there is, then our team will need to perform the gentile LANAP® protocol to treat the disease first.
