Every single person here is incredible and wonderful! They were all so respectful towards me and my ignorance of dental care. I never felt like anyone was judging me for not ever being to a dentist. They were kind, patient, and calm with my anxieties.

Dental Implants Can Replace Any Number of Missing Teeth

Implant crown

Single Missing Tooth

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.

Implant bridges

Multiple Missing Teeth

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.

Implant denture

Complete Tooth Loss

If you are one of the millions of Americans who are completely edentulous, Dr. Curl can design a life-like denture supported by dental implants for optimal security, stability, and a life-like 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. 

Non-Smokers

Nicotine has an effect on 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 LendingClub®, 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.

Consultation

If you are a new patient to our dentistry practice, Dr. Curl will conduct a full examination to determine your current state of oral health. This will include an oral cancer screening and periodontal health check so that he can ensure your implant surgery will be successful. He will also review your medical history and discuss treatment options such as restoration materials. Any questions you may have will be answered and you will leave fully educated about your treatment plan.

Preparatory Procedures

Any outstanding issues will need to be addressed before proceeding with your implant placement. Gum disease and low bone density are common concerns that may require treatment. For gum disease, depending on the extent of the infection, treatment may take up to a year. The same timeline can be expected from bone grafting. Dr. Curl will not place implants unless he can achieve a 95-97% chance of success based on his calculations.

Implant Placement

During the first surgery, Dr. Curl will administer anesthesia to completely numb the area before proceeding. He can offer oral sedation for patients with dental anxiety so that they can relax during surgery. Once he is sure you are comfortable, he will make small incisions in your gums and place the titanium implant into your jawbone.

Initial Healing Period

In the months following placement, the bone tissue in your jaw will fuse with the titanium implant in a process called osseointegration. For your implant to be successful, the titanium post needs to fully integrate into the bone. Generally, this process takes six months for an implant placed in a top arch and three months for an implant placed in a lower arch.

Abutment Placement

An abutment is a small connector piece used to attach your crown, bridge, or denture to your dental implants. During this second surgery, a small incision will be made to expose the implant and secure the abutment. Dr. Curl will also take digital impressions of your smile which will be forwarded to our lab so that they can craft your custom restoration.

Second Healing Period

During the next four to six weeks, your gums will heal around the abutment. It is important to follow the post-op instructions provided by Dr. Curl. These guidelines will help prevent infection and promote healing.

Final Restoration

Once your gums have fully healed around the abutments, Dr. Curl will place your final crown, bridge, or denture. Once attached, your restoration will look, act, and feel just like natural teeth.
