Alternate Treatment Plans
Though they make not be as strong, last as long, or look and feel quite as good, are less extensive and less expensive than the Ideal Treatment Plan. If the Ideal is just too much, look into extracting the worst teeth instead of saving them. A fixed bridge can be performed instead of an implant, and a removable bridge can be done instead of a fixed bridge. Large decayed areas of teeth can be restored by large resin fillings for a few years in lieu of crowns. Another phasing option is by doing the decay removal and build-up fillings first, then restore the teeth with crowns a section at a time, then replace the missing teeth a section of the mouth at a time.
