All it takes is a quick scan of the papers or a brief session on the internet to find dozens of offers for dental implant placement. But how do patients find the right provider for their individual needs and budget? Here is some important information about the facts you need to know before choosing the provider that is best for you.
While cost and procedure time may be factors in choosing a treatment option to replace missing teeth, it is important to do your homework. We suggest that all patients carefully choose a well-qualified, experienced dental implant expert and the restoration method that will meet their long-term needs so that you can eat, smile, laugh, talk, play, and enjoy all your activities.
During your search, take into account where these implant providers are located and whom they serve. Take note of any travel expenses you incur when you visit their office. Does it require driving long distances? How about public transportation? Does the distance to get there fit into your schedule? These are questions you need to ask yourself during your search. For example, Dr. Michael Kirsch and our team proudly serve the following counties:

Yes, many dental professionals can place dental implants. Some learned how to place implants in a weekend course, while others attended training programs of various lengths. Michael G. Kirsch, DDS, MS completed specialty training in Periodontics in 1989 at the University of Iowa College Of Dentistry. He then went on to complete a Master’s Degree in Periodontics. Since the late eighties, Dr. Kirsch has practiced Periodontics. This means that he has placed dental implants for hundreds of satisfied patients. Because of his high degree of skill and knowledge, Dr. Kirsch is sought out for lectures and committee leadership positions. For this reason, we encourage you to come take advantage of his exceptional skills for yourself!
Although some patients may be tempted to take advantage of bargain prices or discounts, we always encourage patients to use caution when contemplating these alternatives. Less expensive dental implants may seem like a great deal when patients are paying reduced rates up front. However, many of these deals do not measure up when it comes to quality, durability, and strength. Additionally, you get deep discounts for the product but have additional costs on the back end when your dental implants need to be replaced or repaired.
We want our patients to rest assured that Heartland Periodontics uses only the highest quality products with a proven and documented history of safe use. Also, when you get a quote from a potential provider, please remember the quote should include multiple parts of your procedure. The quote should include the entire procedure, as well as the cost for the product (the implant, abutment, and the crown piece). There may be additional costs for x-rays, anesthetics, and other services related to your surgery, as well. Read your written estimate and ask questions. We are here to help.
Just as you would with any medical or surgical procedure, you should ask questions about the implant dentist’s experience to make sure that they are qualified and can provide you with the best treatment. Some of the questions we suggest are:
