Because of these alarming statistics, dentists are working diligently to provide tooth replacement options. One of the most popular is dental implants. Creating complete, fully functional smiles, these prosthetics are permanent and can remain in place for more than 30 years.

What are Dental Implants?

Most tooth replacement solutions are only capable of restoring the visible portion - the crown. With dental implants, however, these titanium posts mimic the natural root structure and support customized restorations. They’re the only restorative option that can rebuild the complete root-to-crown structure. Because they are surgically placed within the jawbone, they fuse with the surrounding tissues over time and help to strengthen the bone. As a result, they can support customized crowns, bridges, or dentures that are designed to restore the look and functionality of your smile.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

Dental implants are highly versatile and capable of treating all types of tooth loss. However, there are four basic steps each patient must complete to ensure successful dental implant placement:


  • Initial Dental Implant Consultation – Your initial appointment with Dr. Khorasani will include digital imaging with advanced technology as well as whether you require preliminary treatments (i.e., bone grafting, periodontal therapy, tooth extraction).
  • Dental Implant Surgery – When ready for placement, Dr. Khorasani will administer local anesthesia before making necessary incisions in the gum tissues to place each dental implant post.
  • Dental Implant Osseointegration/Abutment – Once the surgery is complete, you will recover at home for 3-6 months, allowing osseointegration (the fusing of the implant and bone) to occur. You will then return to receive your metal abutments, which are connector appliances.
  • Delivery of Dental Implant Restoration(s) – The final step in the process is to receive your customized restoration. Depending on the number of teeth you are missing, you will receive a crown, bridge, or denture.

Dental implants are a viable solution for most adults experiencing tooth loss. Even if you require preliminary treatments such as bone grafting, periodontal therapy, or tooth extraction, our team can put your smile in a better position to receive dental implants later on, once you’ve fully healed. Because of their versatility, you can rest assured that no matter if you’ve lost a tooth or an entire arch, dental implants can be just what you need for a fuller, more complete smile.

Missing Single Tooth

With more than 120 million Americans living with one missing tooth, we want to help you avoid becoming a statistic. With the help of a single dental implant post, we can fill in the gap and offer optimal functionality. By using one titanium post, a metal abutment, and a customized crown, your smile will be good as new.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Instead of relying on a traditional fixed bridge to replace your multiple missing teeth, we can leave your healthy teeth untouched and instead, place two dental implant posts in the exterior sockets. The remaining bridge, which is made up of pontics (artificial teeth), will rest on top of the gums to fill in the gap. This process allows for permanency and stability while also allowing you to keep your natural, healthy tooth structure.

Missing All of Your Teeth

When an entire row of teeth is gone, traditional dentures are not the only solution. Instead, we can recommend implant dentures. Positioning between four and six implant posts in the appropriate areas, we can create a solid foundation for a customized denture that will be secured to the top. When finished, you will be able to eat the foods you love, speak with clarity, and feel good about your appearance.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

The cost of dental implants is different for each person. Although the process is the same, the number of teeth you are missing as well as whether you require preliminary treatment are two big factors that can increase or decrease how much you’ll be expected to spend on your new smile. Fortunately, our team at Atlas Cosmetic & Family Dentistry of Plano is here to help you navigate the financial side of dental implants. We’ll go over your available dental insurance benefits as well as discuss other available options to keep your out-of-pocket expenses as low as possible.
