If you’ve been dealing with missing teeth, you may be experiencing emotional side effects because you feel embarrassed to smile or interact with others. Tooth loss can also lead to declining oral health and function, negatively impacting your chewing and nutrition. Even a single missing tooth can cause loss of bone and shifting of surrounding teeth, while the spaces can harbor bacteria and cause a gum infection that can spread to other parts of your body if left untreated. Our highly skilled oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. R. Jonas Collins has placed over 9,000 dental implants and treated patients with complex cases turned away by other practices. He is so passionate about the transformative benefits of dental implants that he shares his vast knowledge with other dentists, through teaching and designing restorations. In fact, our entire team finds it incredibly fulfilling to help patients restore their smiles and lives with dental implants in Charlottesville and Waynesboro, VA. We never turn patients away, offer phone consultations, and same-day treatment.
A single dental implant consists of a titanium post, abutment, and a custom-made crown. An implant-supported bridge enables healthy teeth to remain untouched and preserves the bone in your jaw. Implant-supported dentures for upper arches, lower arches, or both rely on a minimum of two dental implants per arch. Full mouth dental implants provide all the benefits of single implants for people with multiple missing teeth and eliminate issues associated with conventional dentures. Since 1997, Dr. Collins has improved the oral health and smiles of thousands of patients with dental implants in Waynesboro, VA and at his beautiful modern practice in Charlottesville, VA.
Along with long-lasting, life-changing advantages, dental implants have a higher initial cost than traditional alternatives. Bridges and crowns need to be replaced every five to 15 years on average. High-quality dental implants are permanent and can last 25-30 years or longer. That coupled with the dramatic improvements to your self-esteem, oral health, and systemic health make dental implants well worth the higher upfront cost. Our team believes everyone should have access to the transformative effects provided by dental implants. As such, we offer discounts, accept Medicaid and many insurance plans, file insurance claims, and work diligently to maximize your benefits. We offer substantial discounts and unlimited warranties on all dental implants. We’re happy to help you get set up with third-party financing through CareCredit® to make receiving dental implants from an experienced oral surgeon in Waynesboro and Charlottesville, VA even more affordable!
