Dental Implant Options

Implant-supported restorations consist of three pieces: an implant post that is surgically anchored into the jawbone, an abutment on top of the post, and a crown, bridge, or denture. 

Implant crown

Implant-Supported Crowns

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.

Dental bridge

Implant-Supported Bridges

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.

Implant denture

Implant-Supported Dentures

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.

About All-on-4 Full-Arch Replacement with Just Four Implants

All-on-4 is a dental implant system designed for people 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.

Same-Day Restorations

All-on-4 achieves a stable foundation faster than traditional implants thanks to the position of the four implants. In many cases, a temporary denture can be anchored on the same day as implant placement.

Greater Affordability

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

Self-Conscious about Tooth Loss

A missing tooth or major gaps between your teeth can affect the way you look. Implants restore the appearance of your smile, eliminating tooth gaps while filling out the shape of your lips and cheeks.

Sufficient Jawbone Density 

Good jawbone density and height are needed to support an implant. Since tooth loss causes bone loss and gum recession, tissue grafting may be required before placing implants.

Good General Health

Dental implants are recommended for people who are healthy enough to undergo oral surgery. Patients should be non-smokers committed to proper aftercare and regular checkups with their dentist.

The Dental Implants Procedure A Look at the Treatment Process

Initial Consultation

During your free consultation at our McKinney practice, Dr. Khodabakhsh will assess your candidacy for dental implants. You can ask questions about the treatment process, pricing, and dental financing options during this initial office visit.

The First Oral Surgery

We will first administer local anesthesia and provide sedation, if needed. During the first oral surgery, incisions are made in the gums so that the titanium implant post can be anchored into the jawbone. The abutment that tops the implant post will be placed during a second surgery performed months later.

Healing and Osseointegration

After the first surgery, patients will spend the next four to six months healing. During this time, osseointegration occurs. The term refers to the fusion of the dental implant with your jawbone, so that it essentially functions like an artificial tooth root.

The Second Oral Surgery

Once osseointegration is completed, a second surgery is performed to place the abutment onto the dental implant. Healing from this second oral surgery only takes a few weeks to complete. Patients are in the home stretch.

Placing the Implant Restoration

The final part of the process is placing the custom implant restoration, which is crafted by skilled technicians at an offsite lab. The crown, bridge, or denture fits securely onto the abutment and is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Are Implants Covered by Insurance?

While your crown, bridge, or denture might be 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 make dental implants more affordable.
