Dental implant-supported prosthetics have transformed the way we restore teeth following tooth loss or severe damage. Unlike traditional solutions that only treat the visible portions of teeth, dental implants in Parker allow us to replace the entire structure, including the root. Whether you are missing a single tooth or a full row of teeth, dental implants offer natural-looking and feeling results. We will help you rebuild your ultimate smile.
Replacing the entire structure of the tooth allows you to enjoy a solution that closely mimics your natural teeth. A biocompatible implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone to serve as a root. This stimulates your jaw to promote new bone growth. Through a process called osseointegration, your jawbone fuses to the posts over the next several weeks. After adequate healing occurs, a special fixture called an abutment is placed on the post to connect your restoration.
The process and materials used to replace the tooth provide various advantages that are not possible with traditional treatments, such as:
If you have good oral and general health, you are likely a candidate for dental implants. No matter if you are missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch, we have the solution you need.
A single missing tooth is replaced using an implant post, an abutment, and a crown. There is no need to alter your adjacent healthy teeth to hold it in place. In fact, it will help support your remaining teeth to stop dental drift.
Two or more consecutive missing teeth are replaced using an implant-supported bridge. An impression of your mouth is used to carefully craft a bridge of prosthetic teeth. It is held in place using an implant post at either end.
You can secure your denture to your jawbone with dental implants. On average, 4 posts are used to anchor your denture to eliminate slipping and irritation. In some cases, you can even be fitted with a temporary denture the same day as your placement surgery, so you will not need to go without your teeth.
There is no set amount you can expect to pay for dental implants because the cost is based on your individual treatment plan. There are various factors that influence the cost, such as the number of teeth that are being treated. We help you keep your new smile affordable by maximizing the value of your insurance policy. We discuss the cost of your treatment and how you can pay for dental implants during your consultation.
