During the course of their lives, three out of four people will suffer from some form of periodontal or gum disease.

In fact, it’s so common that it’s the leading cause of 70% of adult tooth loss. Periodontists can perform a comprehensive examination of your gums and provide treatment to help prevent, reverse, or offset the damaging effects of this disease.

One of the newest solutions to the age-old problem of missing teeth, dental implants are durable enough to last a lifetime.

They are placed into the bone, then restored to replace lost teeth or retain loose dentures.

  • Single tooth replacement
  • Multiple tooth replacement

Choose the Way You Want to Pay

At Crabtree Valley, a point is made to exceed your expectations, not your budget. With quality care at affordable rates, everyone in your family can get the dental care they need and deserve. So when you walk out the door, you’ll leave with a great big smile, not a great big bill.

And while giving you lots of payment choices is important, there’s one choice you should never have to make: deciding between the dental care you need and the dental care you can afford. So the staff at Crabtree Valley sits down with you to figure out which payment option and plan make sense for you for the dental services you need.

To make things even easier for you, Crabtree Valley offers plenty of ways to pay, including VISA®, MasterCard®, Discover®, and American Express®.

And Crabtree Valley now offers an even more convenient way to make payments through Online Bill Pay.

Other financing options accepted at Crabtree Valley include:

  • CareCreditSM - CareCredit is an alternative option to consumer credit cards, cash or checks. With CareCredit you can pay over time instead of a lump sum prior to treatment
