We offer a full range of dental implant services in Schertz. Whether you’re missing one or all of your teeth, your dentist in Schertz, TX can help you restore your smile and your oral health with dental implants.
We specialize in crafting lifelike implant restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures. We also can help patients maintain their implants with routine 6-month visits to Strahler Dental Partners. Implant maintenance is important for protecting your investment, and ensuring your implants last for the rest of your life.
At our office, we offer immediate implants. As soon as your metal implant “post” is placed, we can attach a temporary tooth, “loading” the implant right away. This means you can leave our office with a brand-new tooth. As you heal and recover, you’ll come back for a few follow-ups, and Dr. Strahler will create your permanent tooth.
Single-tooth implants are the most common type of dental implant. They consist of a single metal implant and a dental crown. The implant is placed into your gums and jaw, where it heals and bonds with the bone. It functions as an artificial root. Once the implant heals, the crown is attached to the implant permanently, replacing your missing tooth and restoring your smile.
If you’ve lost most or all of your teeth, full-arch implants are a good alternative to traditional dentures. In this procedure, Dr. Strahler will place a set of 4-6 implants in the upper, lower, or both arches of the mouth. These can be used to support fixed bridges (All-On-4) or removable implant-retained dentures.
After you get full-arch implants, you can get a set of removable implant-retained dentures. These are more durable and long-lasting. And because implant-retained dentures are attached to your implants, they will never shift or move. This makes them look and feel more natural.
All-On-4 uses special implants and a unique surgical procedure to place a permanent, fixed dental bridge on just 4 dental implants. It can be used to restore the upper, lower, or both rows of teeth.
No. Unfortunately, dental implants are not covered by insurance, unlike alternatives such as dental bridges or dentures. However, as a fee-for-service (FFS) practice, Strahler Dental Partners keeps prices affordable for our patients. We also offer financing options through CareCredit, which makes it easier for you to get the treatment you need.
If you’re missing one or more teeth but your jaw bone is healthy, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. If your jaw bone is weak or not dense enough for implants, you may need to get preparatory procedures like bone grafting or a sinus lift. To learn more and find out if you’re a good candidate, it’s best to schedule a consultation with Dr. Strahler at our office.
