What Are Dental Implants?

When patients have lost their natural teeth, replacing them is an essential part of maintaining a confident appearance and healthy smile. At Made Ya Smile in Cypress, TX, we use dental implants, such as single dental implants, implant-supported dentures, and All-of-4® dental implants to replace missing teeth as a long-term, effective option. Implants are made of biocompatible titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone to provide support for a future bridge, crown, or denture, with the ability to replace one or more missing teeth. What's great about implants is that they fill in the gaps of your smile by mirroring the function and appearance of natural teeth. The experienced general dentists at Made Ya Smile work together to complete the procedure at our modern practice location.

Should I Get Dental Implants?

A dental implant may be beneficial if you've lost one or multiple teeth in the lower or upper jaw. Ideal candidates tend to have damaged or decayed teeth that cannot be repaired and want a more permanent alternative. Our doctors require patients to have a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw to support the implants properly. If you use tobacco, are pregnant, or have certain medical conditions, this procedure may not be a good fit for you.
Dental implants work by fusing together with the jawbone during a process called osseointegration. A bridge, crown, or denture is then placed over the posts to match the look of the remaining teeth. At our Cypress, TX, clinic, Made Ya Smile has an elite team of practitioners who have advanced training in single implants, full mouth dental implants, and more. A simple consultation will help you decide if dental implants are best for your tooth loss.

How Do Single Dental Implants Work?

Single dental implants are used to replace just one missing tooth. We first start by placing an implant post in the jaw, which will need a few months to integrate with the bone. Then, we'll create a custom crown and attach it to the implant post. We can typically perform this procedure both in the front and back of the mouth.

What Are Implant Bridges and Implant Dentures?

At our Cypress, TX location, we sometimes see people who have multiple missing teeth in one area of the mouth. When we encounter this, we often suggest an implant bridge. During this procedure, our implant dentist will bond two or more crowns together to form a single appliance. The ends of this appliance will attach to dental implants that were set in the jaw. In the case where full mouth dental implants are necessary, we may suggest implant dentures instead. When implant dentures are needed, we will attach the dentures to two or more implants placed within the jaw.

What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?

All-on-4 dental implants are a full-mouth restoration procedure and are used to replace multiple missing teeth. All-on-4 dental implants work by inserting four implant screws into the upper or lower arch of the mouth, to which the full-arch restoration is securely attached. We may suggest this treatment process for individuals who want to improve their overall oral health without limiting themselves to certain foods and drink that come with dentures.

Will Insurance Cover A Dental Implant?

Depending on your coverage, dental insurance may cover a portion of your implant costs. Made Ya Smile gladly accepts most PPO plans and will contact your provider about the exact details. Our team wants to make sure you are getting the dental care you need, so we will also provide a range of options for financing your procedure. Our Cypress, TX clinic offers low-interest financing with CareCredit® as another convenient payment method.
