Dental Implants Transform Smiles Real Patient Results
Your Dental Implant Treatment Options
Implant-supported restorations consist of three pieces: an implant post that is surgically anchored into the jaw, an abutment on top of the post, and a crown, bridge, or denture.
For individuals missing one tooth, implant-supported crowns are an excellent solution. A single implant is anchored into the gap in your smile in order to support a custom dental crown. The artificial tooth is indistinguishable from natural teeth.
For individuals missing multiple teeth, an implant-supported bridge is ideal. Two or more implants are placed in the jawbone for support. Many patients at our McKinney practice benefit from the strength and appearance of this type of fixed appliance.
For individuals who are missing most or all of their natural teeth, implant-supported dentures are recommended. Dr. Khodabakhsh offers both All-on-4 and Hybridge® full-arch restorations that allow patients to bite, chew, and smile confidently again.
Dental Implants vs. Traditional Restorations
About All-on-4 Full-Arch Replacement with Just Four Implants
All-on-4® is a dental implant system designed for patients who are missing most or all of their teeth. Using just four strategically placed implants, All-on-4 can support a full upper denture or lower denture with the stability of natural tooth roots. Benefits over traditional implant dentures include:
Fewer Implants Needed
Only four implants are needed to support a full denture, even in most patients who lack sufficient jawbone density for traditional dental implant procedures. This avoids the need for bone grafting and multiple surgeries.
Placing fewer implants translates into savings for the patient. Since only four implants are used and grafting is not necessary, All-on-4 is generally less expensive than traditional dental implant procedures.
Candidates for Dental Implants
Affected by Tooth Loss
Dental implants are only for patients who are dealing with some degree of tooth loss. If you are not missing teeth but want to improve an aspect of your oral health or appearance, Dr. Khodabakhsh can recommend an alternative treatment.
Sufficient Jawbone DensityYour jawbone must be strong enough to support a dental implant. Since tooth loss causes bone loss and gum recession, tissue grafting may be required before we can place your implants.
Good General HealthDental implants are recommended for people who are healthy enough to undergo surgery. Patients should be in good general health and committed to proper aftercare and regular checkups with their dentist.
Stop Tobacco Products
Tobacco products are bad for your teeth and overall health. Tobacco can also affect the body's ability to heal, which can increase your risk of implant failure. Our dentistry practice recommends quitting all tobacco products several months before implant placement.
Good Oral Health
If you suffer from an oral health issue such as tooth decay or gum disease, you may require preparatory care, like teeth cleaning or periodontal treatment, before your dental implants can be placed. This ensures a healthy foundation for your dental implants.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
Are implants covered by insurance?
While your crown, bridge, or denture might be partially covered by insurance, implants are usually not. During your visit to our McKinney practice, we can discuss your unique needs and provide a price estimate. We can also discuss financing options, such as CareCredit®, that can make your dental implants more affordable.
How long do implants last?
Dental implants are made of durable titanium. With proper care, your implants can last a lifetime. However, it is important to remember that your restoration will wear over time and will eventually need to be replaced, but not for many years.
How do I maintain my implants?
Maintaining your implants and custom restorations is as simple as brushing and flossing properly and seeing your dentist for regular exams and cleanings.
