If you are missing one or more natural teeth, there are a few different options available to replace them, and we believe the treatment that provides the most valuable and long-lasting benefits is clear: dental implants. Dr. Asay of Chisholm Trail Dental Health offers state-of-the-art dental implants here in Round Rock, TX, and he can’t wait to introduce you to them during an initial consultation. Contact us today!
One of the benefits of dental implants is their versatility – they can be paired with several different types of restorations and used to repair a wide spectrum of tooth loss, from a single gap to an entire missing arch:
When an individual tooth needs to be rebuilt, we can pair a single implant with an all-porcelain dental crown. This brand-new addition will fit right in alongside your natural teeth without threatening their continuing health, and the final result will be so seamless that it’s very likely no one around you will be able to tell it’s not natural!
Implant-retained bridges can help patients effectively “bridge” the gaps left by multiple missing teeth. While traditional bridges require healthy dental structure to be minimized, this modern alternative is much healthier, more stable, and longer-lasting. The custom prosthetic will rely on the support of two dental implants, with each one placed on different sides of the gap in question.
Implant-retained dentures are an available option for patients who need to replace a lot of natural teeth (or even a full arch) all at once. Unlike traditional prosthetics, they rely on the enduring support of dental implants and can be fixed permanently in place or left removable, just like a traditional denture. No more unexpected “slippage” or discomfort!
There are two major components to the dental implant procedure. The implants themselves must be surgically inserted into the patient’s jawbone, effectively taking the place of the original “roots.” Then, once the tissue has sufficiently healed, the implants are outfitted with custom, attractive restorations. Dr. Asay is proud to partner with talented specialists throughout the local community in order to make this process as smooth as possible for patients, including the awesome team at Central Texas Perio in Pflugerville and Dr. Dale Gallagher.
Every patient is unique, and so is every dental implant case. There are a variety of factors that can influence your overall cost, including the number of dental implants needed, the type of restoration recommended, and whether any health-minded procedures (such as periodontal therapy) are required. It’s important to keep in mind that while dental implants may seem like a big investment, their decades-long lifespan and top-tier aesthetic value will go a long way towards improving the quality of your life. We believe they’re worth every penny!
Also, rest assured that the Chisholm Trail team will review ALL relevant cost information with you after an initial consultation and comprehensive examination – no treatment will be scheduled until you feel completely confident about your proposed plan! We take pride in being flexible regarding cost and will bend over backwards to find the right solution for each patient.
