Implant Dentistry In Schertz

Comprehensive Implant Dentistry

Dental implants are the most convenient and long-lasting method of restoring missing teeth. They look and feel just like real teeth, and they also stimulate and protect your jaw bone. This prevents bone resorption, a common problem after tooth loss.

At Strahler Dental Partners, we specialize in implant dentistry in Schertz. We offer a wide range of implants, from single-tooth implants to full-arch implants and All-On-4. We use MegaGen implants and advanced technology for unparalleled results. And with financing options and special programs for veterans, our team can make implant dentistry affordable on any budget.

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.

Implant Restorations & Maintenance

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.

Immediate Implants

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

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.

Full-Arch Implants

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.

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 Implants

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.


Are Dental Implants Covered By Insurance?

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.

Am I A Good Candidate For Dental Implants?

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.

When Do You Need Dental Implants?

Dental implants are an excellent restorative option for you if you have missing teeth from dental decay or gum disease. The implants will replace missing teeth, giving you a complete, natural-looking smile. However, patients with periodontitis might need prior treatment before getting implants. We also take x-rays to determine whether you have sufficient jawbone and arrange for grafting if you don’t.

Dental implants are also ideal for patients with severely fractured teeth. This is true for patients with teeth that are too fractured for dental crowns and restorative options. In such cases, the dentist will remove the remaining fragments of the tooth before installing the implants. Patients with fractured teeth are likely to require grafting before the procedure.

You may also need implants as a prerequisite for certain dental procedures. For instance, you may need implants if you’re getting implant-supported bridges. These implants are necessary to hold the bridges in place when the teeth adjacent to the gap aren’t present or sturdy enough.

If I Get Implants, What Is the Required Maintenance?

Maintaining your implants is as easy as brushing your teeth twice daily with a soft-bristled brush and fluoride toothpaste for at least two minutes. Additionally, you should also floss in between the teeth and abutments to remove debris and food particles and ensure fresh breath. After flossing, use mouthwash to flush away any remaining debris in the mouth.

Aside from maintaining proper oral hygiene, you should watch what you eat and drink. Avoid eating too many starchy and sugary foods that promote dental decay. You’ll also want to let your coffee and tea to cool before drinking. Hot beverages like tea and coffee can hamper the healing process.

Also, you’ll want to schedule regular follow-up appointments with your dentist. These appointments check your treatment progress and identify issues early on before they get out of hand. You should also avoid biting into hard foods and objects using dental implants. These hard foods include ice, raw carrots, and sugar cane.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants last 20 to 30 years, but their longevity depends on how well you take care of them. For instance, dental implants last longer for patients who maintain proper oral hygiene. The opposite is true for those who don’t.

Additionally, lifestyle habits also affect the lifespan of dental implants. Regular drinking and smoking can compromise your implants’ lifespan and disrupt healing after the procedure. These substances constrict the blood vessels supplying blood to the implant site and thus disrupt healing.

Unavoidable situations like injury or harm to the implants also affect how long it lasts. Accidents or falls can break your dental implants. If so, you should contact your dentist to arrange for prompt replacement. Lastly, implants may last a shorter time for patients with pre-existing medical conditions like diabetes.
