Dental Implants in Forney
Are All-on-4® Dental Implants a Permanent Solution?
All-on-4® dental implants are like having conventional dentures, except the dentures are permanent, in addition to being more comfortable. Unlike dentures, the All-on-4® implants function like natural teeth because the implants act as teeth roots, giving you the biting power that adhesive dentures cannot.
How Much Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Cost?
We can give you an estimate of your total All-on-4 treatment cost after determining if you will need any tooth extractions and if you are getting both an upper and lower arch of teeth or just one arch. Call our office today to request your consultation.
What Are Some of the Benefits of Single Dental Implants?
Dental implants can replace missing teeth lost to injury or disease. Having a full smile one again will improve your self-confidence and self-esteem. Additionally, an implant functions just like a natural tooth. Since the implant is absorbed into your jawbone, it is essentially an artificial tooth root. You can enjoy all your favorite foods once again. Call our office to schedule a consultation to learn how you can benefit from dental implants.
Are Dental Implants Covered By Dental Insurance?
Although coverage varies between dental insurance providers, most do not cover procedures that are cosmetic in nature. For this reason, it is important to check with your provider to find out how much they will cover. If you lost a tooth in an accident, your medical insurance provider may cover the cost of replacing the tooth.
How Can an Implant-Supported Bridge Eliminate the Need for Crowns?
If you need a bridge to replace missing teeth that are adjacent to each other, your dentist may have mentioned that the healthy teeth on either side of the bridge will need modifying to support a crown. We recommend that you investigate the possibility of using an implant-supported bridge that relies on implants for support, so the healthy teeth on either side of the bridge remain intact.
Are Implant-Supported Bridges More Expensive than Traditional Bridges?
Initially, implant-supported bridges are more expensive. However, they last much longer than traditional bridges, so in the end, they are a better value. If you have dental insurance that will not cover an implant-supported bridge, we may be able to provide flexible financing or you may also have access to dental discount plans that can help to supplement the costs not covered by your insurance. Call our office for a consultation. After you consultation, we will provide you with a cost estimate for an implant-supported bridge based on your needs.
Does an Implant-Supported Denture Require Special Care?
Implant-supported dentures are ideal for individuals dissatisfied with their traditional dentures. When you get an implant-supported denture, it is always securely held in place. You can smile, laugh, eat, and speak with confidence, knowing that you will never have to worry about your denture slipping or making clicking noises.
Implant-supported dentures are easy to maintain. You can brush the teeth as if they were natural teeth; you still have to floss once a day to remove plaque between your teeth. While the denture teeth cannot decay, plaque can still cause bad breath and gum disease.
What Should I Expect to Pay for an Implant-Supported Denture?
The price for an implant-supported denture varies considerably among patients, according to the type of implants chosen, the materials used and whether there is a need for extractions or bone grafts, among other factors. Call our office to arrange a consultation and we’ll provide you with the estimated cost for an implant-supported denture.
When Should I See a Periodontist?
Your dentist may refer you to a periodontist if you have gum disease and need surgery. Periodontists also perform cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as grafting gums to improve a smile or placing implants and implant-supported dentures and bridges. If you have been looking for a local periodontist, call our office to schedule an appointment.
