Missing one or more teeth can have a negative impact on your daily life and can adversely affect your speech, comfort, and self-esteem. Eventually, missing teeth can lead to more complex dental problems such as the jawbone shrinking, shifting of remaining teeth, periodontal disease, and more. Replacing a missing tooth, or teeth will help avoid these additional dental problems.
There are many treatment options for tooth replacement. At Millennium Smiles, we offer dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants as treatment options for missing teeth. Dental implants are highly recommended because they provide a natural looking and functioning smile.
A dental implant is a biocompatible titanium post that is surgically implanted into your jawbone, replacing the root of a missing tooth. When a tooth is lost, bone loss will eventually occur because the root is no longer stimulating and stabilizing the bone. A dental implant joins directly to the jawbone and functions like the original root structure.
Dental implants offer many advantages and benefits compared to other treatment options.
The process begins with a consultation and comprehensive exam with your Frisco restorative dentist to plan treatment phases and perform any necessary diagnostics. Our team will then coordinate the surgical phase with a local oral surgeon to ensure consistency of care for implantation of the post. The final step is restoration. About 3-6 months after implantation, you will return to our Frisco office to have your custom made dental crown placed on the post.
Dental implants are a great solution for replacing missing teeth. They can be used to replace a single tooth or to secure a denture for results that are as close to your natural teeth as possible.
‘The cost of dental implants varies from patient to patient and is based on number and location of implants, as well as any additional treatment necessary to restore overall oral health. While most dental implants procedures are not covered by insurance, we will submit all billing information to your insurance company to allow for maximum reimbursement. We also offer flexible payment options to make the treatment more affordable.
Whether you have one or several missing teeth, dental implants can be the best choice for a long-lasting, worry-free solution. Dental implants give patients the most lifelike replacement for missing teeth with the ability to brush, eat, speak, and smile confidently!
