When you lose even one tooth, your confidence and your quality of life are lost along with it. Traditionally, a bridge and crowns are used to fill the empty space. Although it gives you a convenient treatment, it never truly looks or feels natural. At Cimarron Family Dentistry, we will help you enjoy the next best thing to your real tooth. We offer dental implants in Hurst, and we can complete your entire treatment in-office. No matter if you need a damaged tooth removed, the implant post placed, or your restoration restored, we will rebuild a beautiful, functional smile.
Traditional prosthetics only replace the visible portion of your tooth above the gum line. Dental implants are different because they treat the entire tooth structure, including the root. A biocompatible titanium implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone. Acting as a new tooth root, it stimulates your jaw to encourage new bone growth. Over the next several weeks, your jawbone fuses to the post. This not only preserves your jaw’s density, but it also provides a stable foundation for the replacement crown to regain as much as 70% of your biting force.
After your jawbone has fused to the post, you need a second minor surgery to place an abutment on the implant. This fixture is a connector piece between the post and your crown. A couple of weeks after your abutment is placed, we take an impression of your mouth to carefully craft a dental crown that matches the appearance of your natural teeth to blend in seamlessly when you smile.
A dental implant costs more upfront than a traditional bridge, but it is more cost effective long-term because it can last for several decades. With over a 95% success rate, you will never need to worry about having it replaced if you care for it properly.
Unfortunately, there is no easy way to tell you how much your dental implant will cost without first having a consultation with your dentist in Hurst. The amount you pay is determined by your individual treatment plan. There are various factors that influence the cost, such as the type of implant used, if you need an extraction, and your dental coverage.
We help you maximize the value of your dental insurance to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket. We accept a variety of payment options to cover any remaining balance to keep your new smile affordable.
