What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are used to replace the missing roots of teeth. They’re biocompatible, which means that once they’re inserted within the jawbone, they’re able to naturally fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration. Once this has occurred, they’ll be able to support a dental crown, bridge, or denture to restore the entire dental structure.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  1. During your consultation, your dentist in Burleson will determine whether or not you're a viable candidate for dental implants. Typically, patients need to have an adequate amount of jawbone density and good oral health for the procedure to have the highest chances of succeeding. While the lack of either of these qualities isn’t a deal breaker, additional procedures could be needed before any actual implant treatment begins.
  2. Your new implants will be placed into the jawbone by our experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Starck .
  3. In most cases, patients will need a significant period of healing time following their implant placement. This gives your natural bone plenty of time to integrate with the new implant(s) and create a solid foundation for your eventual replacement teeth. An additional procedure for the attachment of an abutment/extension may be needed during this time.
  4. Finally, patients return to Marvel Dental so our team can design and place brand-new restorations that complement natural smiles to a tee. Dental crowns are used in cases of single implants, while implant dentures and implant bridges restore several teeth at once.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a host of benefits that make them incredibly popular for replacing missing teeth in Burleson. Because they replace both the roots and crowns, patients are able to enjoy a result that both looks and feels natural, as they restore up to 80% of the natural biting force. Additionally, while traditional dentures and bridges often need to be replaced after between seven and 10 years, implant restorations can last for up to 20, minimizing costly replacements and extra visits to the dentist.

Who Can Dental Implants Help?

Dental implants are a versatile tooth replacement treatment that patients experiencing different tooth loss situations can benefit from. Whether you have a single gap in your smile, several, or you’re missing an entire row of teeth, we can utilize this leading-edge technique to yield outstanding, lifelike results.

Missing One Tooth

For a single missing tooth, our team can place one dental implant below the gumline in the gap within your arch. This will fuse with the bone to provide a stable and incredibly strong foundation for a free-standing dental implant to be secured to.

Missing Multiple Teeth

If you’re missing multiple teeth either in a row or across your arch, we can secure an implant bridge or combination of implant bridges and crowns. Instead of attaching the bridge to your healthy existing teeth, we will place two dental implants at either edge of the space in your arch. These will anchor the restoration in place, resulting in little-to-no alteration of your healthy teeth.

Missing All Teeth

Implant dentures closely resemble a traditional denture, but they attach to implants instead of resting on the gum line or requiring other teeth to be modified, making them superior in both function and health. Patients will enjoy having chewing strength returned, and they won’t have to worry about slippage. Both fixed and removable options are available depending on the state of your mouth and personal preference.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Every dental implant procedure is tailored to meet individual needs, which is why there’s no set cost for this treatment. Our team will provide you with a detailed breakdown of the overall price of your treatment, as well as walk you through potential dental insurance coverage. While it’s not always the case that insurance benefits can be applied to associated dental implant costs, some plans may cover a portion of certain aspects of the process, like the restoration.

Dental Implant FAQs

Will my dental implant plan be customized to meet my unique needs?

When you visit Marvel Dental, Dr. Oza will start the dental implant process by conducting a careful oral examination. Then, if there are any issues that need to be addressed, like gum disease treatment or a tooth extraction, we’ll make sure it’s taken care of. Next, we’ll develop a custom plan for you based on the number and condition of any remaining teeth.

We’ll then put the data to work by developing a custom restoration plan and then forward it to a trusted specialist who will place your dental implants in Burleson. After you recover from the initial insertion, we’ll add a final restoration so you can get back to leading a normal and fulfilling life.

What if all of my teeth are missing?

Thankfully, there are dental implant options to replace any number of missing teeth. If you need a full mouth reconstruction, you don’t have to endure having several dental implants placed, which can be costly and more time consuming. Instead, we’ll create a reconstruction plan that requires only four to six dental implants per arch, that will allow a full set of prosthetic teeth to be securely attached. Unlike a traditional denture, which relies on the suction created inside your mouth and dental adhesive to be held in place, your implant-retained denture will be fastened to the underlying support with snaps or a bar. That means no shifting and up to 80% of the original chewing capacity restored.

How much do dental implants cost?

As previously mentioned, the dental implant process is completely customized. Thus, the only way to receive an accurate price quote for the procedure is to visit our Burleson office for a thorough examination. Then, based on your needs, we’ll create a complete treatment plan that takes into account any restorative care needed before the implant is placed, the number of teeth you have missing and the type of restoration you’ll need. Based on this information, we’ll determine the cost of replacing your teeth with dental implants. This will allow you to plan accordingly on investing into the future of your oral health.

Will my smile look natural?

By being inserted into the underlying jawbone, a dental implant mimics the function of the natural tooth root. Then, to solidify its position, the new fixture fuses with the underlying jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This forms a sound foundation for a final restoration to be attached via a titanium abutment that acts as an anchor.

Your dentist in Burleson will work with you to find the right shape, size and shade of teeth to create the most symmetrical appearance possible. Then, after we’ve filled in all the gaps, you can look forward to enjoying greater confidence and a functional set of teeth!
