So whether you see an “in-network” or “out-of-network” dentist, it really does not matter because they will still only pay $1500 per year. 100% of the patients that see Dr. Andy Burton choose to see him out of their insurance networks because they want their dental work done right.

We are pleased to offer several options for patient financing (including 0% for 12 months!).

Following a soft credit check and subject to approval, we offer:

  • Carecredit® Healthcare Financing
  • Lending Club Patient Financing

We accept cash, debit cards, and most major credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express).

Dental Implants FAQs

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth. They are a popular, long-term solution for missing teeth, failing teeth, or dental issues.

Doctors use a titanium or zirconium implant fixture that fuses to the jawbone over time. This forms a strong anchor, ensuring stability and eliminating movement concerns.

Dental implants consist of the implant (a screw serving as a tooth root), the abutment (a connector holding the tooth), and the crown (the visible prosthetic tooth).

You can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full set of teeth using dental implants. Full mouth implants and multiple implants are suitable for different needs. Dr. Andy also offers zygomatic implants for patients who have been told they could not have implants.

Dental implants can help prevent bone loss in the jaw, maintain facial structure, and expand dietary choices. Strong teeth enhance overall health.

When well cared for, dental implants are an excellent long-term solution. Their advantages include stability, no slipping, no special cleaners, and preservation of adjacent teeth.

Dental implant failure can be due to various factors. Choose an experienced implant specialist for proper planning and placement to avoid problems. Dr. Andy is an expert in treating ailing and failing implants.

Symptoms of dental implant failure may include discomfort, mobility, infection, or changes in appearance. If you experience any concerns, please contact our office immediately.

Sedation Dentistry FAQ

Sedation dentistry offers a relaxed state during dental procedures, allowing you to remain awake while feeling at ease. It’s also known as “twilight sleep” and includes a short-term memory lapse for pain-free experiences.
Sedation dentistry suits people of all ages, including children, dealing with dental anxiety, fear of needles, sensitive gag reflex, extreme teeth sensitivity, and more.
Sedation options include nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), oral conscious sedation (via pills), and intravenous (IV) sedation for deeper relaxation during longer procedures.
Before your appointment, abstain from eating or drinking for six hours. Inform your dentist about medications and health history.
Your dentist administers sedative medications before the procedure, followed by local anesthetic for comfort. You’ll need someone to accompany you if you choose oral or IV sedation.
Sedation minimizes anxiety, allows faster dental work, and promotes regular dental visits. It ensures a calm, comfortable experience and reduces the need for multiple appointments.
While generally safe, potential risks include lingering drowsiness, unpredictable effects of oral medications, dry mouth, nausea, headaches, and IV bruising.
Yes, sedation dentistry is safe for children, although some temporary side effects like snoring, fever, and nausea may occur.
Sedation dentistry is generally not recommended during pregnancy due to potential fetal development effects. Most dentists prefer to administer sedation post-pregnancy.
Recovery times vary based on the sedation type. Nitrous oxide users usually recover within minutes, while oral or IV sedation may take around 24 hours.
If you opt for oral or IV sedation, wait at least 24 hours before driving. Nitrous oxide users can drive once they leave the dental office.
You can eat and drink right after your appointment, although starting with clear liquids is recommended. Transition to more substantial foods once numbness subsides.
Contact us if you experience persistent pain, nausea, fever, or discomfort after sedation.
