Dental Implants Transform Smiles Patient Before and After Photos
Dental Implant Options
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 versus Traditional Restorations
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.
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 LossA 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 DensityGood 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 HealthDental 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.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
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.
