Dental Implants Can Replace Any Number of Missing Teeth
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.
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.
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.
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.
