Dental Implants – Frisco, Colorado
Dental Implant to Replace a Broken Tooth
Dental Implant Surgery, Bone Grafting, and Crown Restoration
Dental implants allow our Frisco dentist and team to recreate the structure of lost teeth, leaving patients with natural looking, feeling, and functioning smiles. Dr. Brett Amedro is a general dentist that both surgically places and restores dental implants. He also completes the necessary bone grafting procedures if indicated for your dental implant. He has completed additional training that has allowed him to offer both the surgical and restorative treatment in his office, thus making dental implant treatment seamless and convenient for you. If you’re interested in learning more about dental implants, call our Frisco dentist and team to schedule a consultation appointment.
Benefits of Dental Implants
With our skilled dentist and team, patients who are missing teeth have a strong, beautiful alternative to traditional bridges, partials, or full dentures. Dental implants will improve your smile and your lifestyle. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth because of a titanium anchor attached to the jawbone. Implants can also anchor bridges, partials, or full dentures to eliminate slipping. We offer complete dental implant procedures at our Frisco dental office, so Dr. Amedro will perform implant placement and restoration in a location and with a team you know and trust. Many of the reasons patients and dentists prefer dental implant supported tooth replacement include:
- Both the root and crown of teeth are replaced, creating a more natural look and feel
- Once in place, dental implant supported tooth replacements can last as much as 20 years
- After two or more decades, your implant supported tooth replacement will have a 90% or higher success rate
- Once in place, the dental implant supported replacement tooth will function just like your healthy natural smile, allowing you to eat a wide range of foods
- Your implant supported replacement tooth will be fully self-supporting, so you don’t have to worry about damage to healthy surrounding teeth
Indications for Dental Implants
After a thorough evaluation, your dentist can tell you whether you’re a candidate for dental implants. They require adequate bone structure for placement. The first stage of the procedure involves oral surgery in which a titanium post is implanted into the jawbone for each missing tooth or a few dental implants will be used to anchor a bridge or denture. Nature will take its course, allowing your bone and gum tissue to fuse with the titanium post. This creates a solid foundation.
Missing One Tooth
For a single lost tooth, one dental implant will be placed, and your dentist will attach a handcrafted, permanent dental crown to each post. The restorations will match your natural teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile.
Missing Multiple Teeth
For two or more consecutive teeth, an implant supported fixed bridge is recommended. Two dental implants are used to support either side of a row of replacement teeth. For consecutive and nonconsecutive teeth, we’ll use two to four dental implants to support a custom crafted partial denture.
Missing All Teeth
For a full row of missing teeth, we’ll use four to six dental implants to support a full denture. Once in place, your implant denture will function just like your healthy smile.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Every dental implant supported tooth replacement is different, so we’ll need to review your individual treatment plan to provide an accurate estimate of out of pocket treatment costs. We’ll do our utmost to help you keep the costs of your treatment within your budget. While most dental insurance providers don’t offer coverage for dental implants, they will offer benefits for other aspects of your treatment plan, including your replacement tooth or teeth. Our team members will process and file these claims to help you maximize any available coverage. We also provide low and no interest financing to help you split the cost of treatment into several more manageable payments.
