As an alternative to traditional treatments, you can discover the difference with dental implants in Corpus Christi. Dr. Sarah Pitarra can rebuild your smile using a solution that looks and feels natural.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants allow you to enjoy the next best thing to your real teeth because they replace the entire structure of the tooth. This creates several advantages that are not possible with other treatments, including:

Indications for Dental Implants

Contrary to common belief, your dentist in Corpus Christi, Dr. Pitarra can use dental implants to treat all severities of tooth loss. Your treatment process varies slightly depending on how many teeth are being treated.

Missing Single Tooth

A biocompatible implant post is surgically placed into the jawbone to act as a new root. A special fixture called an abutment is connected to it to attach your dental crown.

Missing Multiple Teeth

One or more consecutive missing teeth are replaced with an implant-supported bridge. Your prosthetic teeth are carefully crafted to match the appearance of your natural ones. The bridge is held in place using a dental implant at either end instead of placing crowns on the adjacent teeth.

Missing All Your Teeth

You can forget about slipping and irritation when speaking, chewing, or smiling. You can anchor your denture to your jawbone using an average of 4 implant posts. In some cases, the entire arch can be replaced in just one day.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Dental implants are more expensive upfront than traditional treatments, but they are more affordable long-term because they have the potential to last forever. There is no set amount you can expect to pay for your new smile because the cost is based on your specific treatment plan.

Dr. Pitarra provides you with a custom estimate and discusses your payment options to keep your new smile affordable, such as using your dental insurance or third-party financing with CareCredit.
