"I'm an adult patient. My teeth have been bothering me for a while (crooked, crowding etc) and so I finally decided to have them fixed. I've been treated" with invisilign and I have been so pleased that I made the decision. The progress has been faster than I expected, the improvements noticeable early on, and virtually no pain or discomfort. My dentist is the only person who has ever even noticed them on me and I speak in front of groups for my job (with no one ever noticing anything!). I'm so happy I chose to do this, even at my age, with
Orthodontics!

Many adults are wearing braces to get a better smile. The cost you pay for metal, ceramic, lingual or Invisalign braces will depend on these four factors.

 I am familiar witht he ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers across the country, in particluar, the one in Overland Park, KS.  They are a "one stop" implant center.  The doctors there are at the top of their field, and an advantage is that you have all of the specialists that will be working with you in the same place.  That would have to make communication easier between doctors.  They usually offer seminars for patients and I think, offer free consultations, which is always worthwhile.

  If you chose to go the other way, some Prosthodontists will place and restore the implants themselves. In other cases, an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist will place the implant and a Prosthodontist or General Dentist restores it.   Fees can vary quite a bit from office to office and with the different options for restorative materials.  Some offer free consultations, for others, they charge a fee that might be applied to any future treatment in some cases.

The first step is to schedule a few consultations with different providers, which it sounds like you've already done.

The most important factors when deciding which practitioner to work with:
:
.1.  You should feel comfortable asking your doctor any questions so that you have a good understanding of the procedure itself, healing time and long-terem outcome, and possible complications.  Write down a list of questions and take them with you to the consultation.

2.  Ask about the experience of the practitioner. How many similiar procedures have they completed?  Have they had any major complications with any cases?  Ask to see photos if possible.

3..Figure out if it works out better for your schedule, to go to a "one stop" provider or to separate providers for the placement and the restoration of the implants.

4. Follow your instincts.  If you feel rushed, didn't get direct answers to your questions, didn't communicate well or had any other negative feelings, this probably isn't the doctor for you.

5. Consider insurance coverage and financing options.  If your dental plan covers implants and it is important to you to use a preferred provider, you will want to check your list.  Many times, insurance does not cover implants, or at least not all of the steps.  You may want to inquire about payment and financing options.

I hope this at least helps you feel a little less confused and a little more directed. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of further help.

As a  Dentist, I am sorry to hear about your denture nightmare and I know how frustrating that can be.  I am surprised that your doctor wasn't willing to work with you on some type of solution.  A few options would be either remaking the dentures once more,  or offering to return some of the money and have you return the dentures.   Unfortunately, the doctor has put in a lot of their time and lab expenses, but the patient also  has time and money invested.  You might try sending a letter re-explaining the problems you hand and offering an acceptible and fair solution.  Be sure to keep a copy of it and any correspondence you receive from the Dental Office.  In the event that you don't get anywhere, you have documentation of the problem. 

At any point in the process, did they have you sign something saying you were happy with the denture set up?  Some practitioners will document the patient's acceptance at the try-in appointment, before the denture is processed.  At that time, changes in tooth arrangement, size and color can be made with minimal lab expense. 

If the letter doesn't get you anywhere, you might try going to the governing body of the dental profession in your area.  I am a dentist in Blue Springs, Missouri, USA.  Here, we have the Missouri Dental Board  (or the Dental Division of the Missouri Department of Professional Registration.)  This is the entity that licenses us to perform our professional duties in our state.  They often have a process to file complaints against a provider if you were unable to resolve the problem yourself.   After your complaint is received, they will contact the doctor to get their side of the story, then try to mediate a solution between the two parties.  

As far as a new set of dentures, you might seek out the services of a Prosthodontist (specializes in dentures and removable appliances - extra training and certification beyond general dentistry) or go to a local dental school.  The students are supervised and checked off at each step by professionals.  Most dental schools also treat patients through their faculty practices, and you can often get the services of a specialist at a lower price. 

I hope this information is helpful to your situation, and I wish you well.

Starting with the consultation,
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
is amazing. Very professional and friendly from her greeting me. She was not eager to make a sale, but really interested with helping me correct the work I had done by another provider. She also had work done by Dr.
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
herself, and when I saw her before and after snapshots, it reaffirmed that I was doing the right thing by being there. After speaking to
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
, Dr.
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
came in to speak with me and to have a look at my teeth. He then explained what he was going to do and how long it will take me with confidence and leadership - I could tell he's done this before with a great number of satisfied customers. Although I was very self-conscious about my teeth, Dr.
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
did not make me feel ashamed. He possesses a great energy and positive attitude. The payment options provided by
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
were affordable and definitely worth it now that I keep looking at my smile and teeth! During the journey, I was assisted by
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
maybe once or twice, she is a sweetheart.
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
and
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
always welcomed me during my scheduled appointments, even speaking to me on the phone, a great duo! I did not get assistance from

and

, however, they are so very pleasant. From day one,
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
, who primarily assisted me, put me at ease with how the process will take place, and when I saw her teeth and beautiful smile, I was truly inspired and eagerly anticipating the same results, and I achieved them! Man, all I kept doing is stare at her teeth and smile, very enchanted. I wanted to fast forward to the results right away!
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
was not only professional all of the way through this journey, but we developed a great relationship, so much so that I'm inviting her to my wedding. Although previously I was scheduled to complete my work later and I was totally fine with,
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
was committed to having my work done sooner, before my wedding, and I am so very happy that she did. I have been speaking to my fiance about considering Dr.
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
and
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
for her orthodontia work in the near future. If I had to do it all over again, I would - many many times over! I feel like I've had a makeover, and I did. Thank you Dr.

Beautiful and I love my smile. They are highly professional and academic- with a real cutting
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
approach to the latest techniques. And a nice thing about the office is both doctors see all the patients- so you don't have to worry about having only "your" doctor available to see you. They both see each others patients which makes for a nice balance and ease of booking. They also coordinated with several other dental experts I needed to see in a seamless fashion. Fantastic experience!

Dr
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
has an excellent chairside manner. They're professional, consistent and he's thoroughly vested in continuing education in his field. He has the newest technology and is a very good educator of the various techniques and their associated benefits. Scheduling was always very easy. The office was designed and built by Dr

Over the years I have not had one single complaint. They can get me in at a time convenient to my schedule, and the wait time is never longer than 5 minutes. They make the office environment fun and enjoyable.

The entire staff is absolutely FANTASTIC! They do a great job of walking you through every step of the process--from what is required in the mouth, to what is required financially. I never had a question about anything because they were so thorough in their explanations. They managed everything with my insurance company and were able to clearly tell me my portion of the cost. They allowed me to make monthly payments to reach the total out-of-pocket cost. Dr.
Birmingham Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
definitely has a gift for adjusting teeth and bites! It is amazing what she did with my daughter's bite by using braces, bands and now a retainer. She and her staff are GREAT with children of all ages. I highly recommend Town & Country Orthodontics!
