Dental Insurance Marietta GA Dental insurance is designed to make dental treatments more affordable. While you know and understand that dental insurance doesn’t cover cosmetic dental services, you may be surprised to learn that many dental insurance companies also exclude dental implants.

Concerned Patient Marietta GAIf you are interested in dental implants to replace your missing teeth, you’ll need to carefully consider the healing process. In fact, the way an implant heals is a primary indicator of its success.

While the medical conditions below won’t necessary disqualify you from getting dental implants, they can mean you’ll need some special care and close monitoring during your recovery. continue reading

Dental Implant Model Marietta GA There is no doubt that natural teeth are remarkably strong.
