Missing Teeth Is Very Common
Dental Implants Can Replace Any Number of Missing Teeth
A single missing tooth can occur as a consequence of infection, decay, or sudden trauma. An implant-supported dental crown can replace the tooth and prevent jawbone recession.
If you are missing two or three adjacent teeth, an implant-supported dental bridge can fill the gaps in your smile. Unlike traditional bridges, this allows the dentist to preserve the entire structure of nearby teeth.
If you are one of the millions of Americans who are completely edentulous, Dr. Curl can design a lifelike denture supported by dental implants for optimal security, stability, and a lifelike appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?
Good Oral Health
So that you can enjoy years of service from your new smile, Dr. Curl will only perform implant surgery if your oral health can support an implant. Any outstanding dental conditions, such as gum disease, will need to be resolved before moving forward with your implant treatment.
Adequate Bone Density
If you have been living with missing teeth for some time, you may be suffering from significant jawbone atrophy. If your bone density is too low to support an implant, Dr. Curl can perform bone grafting in order to strengthen your jaw.
Well-Controlled Medical Conditions
Autoimmune disorders and inflammatory diseases, such as diabetes, increase certain risks associated with surgery and slow your body's healing response. These types of conditions should be well-managed since you need to be in good overall health for implants to be successful.
Nicotine affects your body's ability to heal. Smoking also increases the risk of complications during and after surgery. Dr. Curl recommends that you quit smoking for several months in advance if you are interested in dental implant treatment.
Can I Afford Dental Implants?
Our team is dedicated to providing patients with access to cost-effective dental care. Our office managers work closely with patients and Dr. Curl to develop treatment and financial plans so that everyone who visits our dental practice in The Woodlands can improve their oral health.
We Maximize Applicable Coverage
We accept most major dental insurance plans, and our friendly office staff will file all the necessary paperwork with your provider to ensure you make the most of your benefits. While dental implants are generally not covered by dental insurance, preparatory procedures and final restorations such as bridges, crowns, or dentures may be, depending on your specific dental plan.
Flexible Financing Options Are Available
To help manage out-of-pocket expenses, we accept financing through third-party lenders GreenSky® and CareCredit®. These financing options allow patients to choose a payment plan that works with their unique budget. Our team can answer any questions you may have about financing and help you choose the option that best meets your needs.
Dental Implant Treatment Timeline
We use advanced tools like surgical guides and 3D X-rays with CT scans for incredible precision.
How Do I Care for Dental Implants?
Brush Three Times a Day
Whether you have a single crown or a full implant-supported denture, continue the habit of brushing at least three times a day. With implants, it's important to use low-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Hard bristles are more likely to lead to gum recession, which can expose the abutment or implant.
Carefully floss around the base of each implant daily to remove plaque and food debris. Tools like a floss threader, interdental brush, or water flosser can help make cleaning hard-to-reach places easier. Water flossers are especially helpful for cleaning between implant-supported dentures and the gums.
Visit Your Dentist
Continue to visit the dentist twice a year so your oral health can be monitored and your implants given a thorough deep cleaning. Twice-yearly checkups will help ensure potential problems are caught and treated before they become bigger concerns.
Ready for Your Stunning New Smile?
If you're missing teeth, you'll know the challenges that gaps in your smile can bring. Chewing easily, speaking clearly, and sharing your smile aren't things that need to stay in your rearview mirror forever. Implant-supported restorations placed by Dr. Curl will give you something to smile about. Our office in The Woodlands, TX, provides state-of-the-art care for patients from Spring, Conroe, and the surrounding area.
