Plano's Premier Destination for Dental Implants
Tired of living with a missing tooth? Here's why dental implants
are so great compared to conventional methods of replacing teeth...
Reasons to Choose Dental Implants
Impressive DurabilityDental implants are built to last a lifetime, and the results are incredibly long-lasting. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry has reported that implants have a 98 percent longterm success rate.
Dental implants are a great choice for patients who need dentures because they keep your restoration in place when you eat and talk. With dental implants, there is no risk of clicking, slipping, or other denture mishaps. Your restoration will stay in place just like your natural teeth would. Furthermore, unlike traditional bridges or traditional dentures, they also help maintain a healthy jawbone.
By replacing a missing tooth, dental implants can help you feel more confident when you speak, smile, or eat. Our dentists combine personalized planning, advanced technology, and premium materials to deliver beautiful, lifelike results that patients are proud to show off. When designing your crown, bridge, or dentures, we take every facial feature into account to create a smile that truly represents you.

"I Felt like Imagecare Dental Wants What Is Best for Me"
"I am in the process of deciding if implants are in my best interest. The folks here took the time to actually go over the pros and cons of the many choices. I have gone to the big box implant places and they just want to push their product and never explain the down side to their version. I felt like Imagecare Dental wants what is best for me. Another huge help is they will actually file the insurance for me and not let me have that battle on my own."
What Time Works Best for You?
What Exactly Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a bionic tooth root made from medical-grade titanium. Why titanium? In addition to being one of the strongest metals on earth, titanium is incredibly lightweight, making it an ideal choice for dental implants and other prosthetics that go into the body.
Besides being light and strong, titanium also has the ability to fuse with human bone tissue during a process known as osseointegration. To assist with osseointegration, the surface of a dental implant is ridged like that of a screw, allowing it to fuse with the jawbone much more effectively.
Understanding how implants work and what benefits they can offer is a key step in determining whether they are right for your needs.
I'm embarrassed I even need treatment for tooth loss...
Don't Feel Embarrassed Missing Teeth Are Incredibly Common
But do I qualify for dental implants?
Before Performing Implant Treatment, We'll Evaluate Your:
Dental implants require a sufficient amount of dense, healthy jawbone. Patients who have suffered jawbone atrophy as a result of trauma, gum disease, or extensive tooth decay might require bone grafting, or they may be better candidates for alternative techniques like All-on-4® implants.
Smoking is directly linked to poor outcomes in dental implant patients. Most doctors will require you to quit using any type of tobacco several months before you can be approved for surgery.
Healthy gums are also integral to a strong foundation for your implants. If you suffer from gum disease, our doctors can first provide periodontal treatment to improve your eligibility for the procedure.
Certain conditions, such as poorly controlled diabetes, can increase your risk of complications. It is extremely important to disclose all health concerns and medications to your dentist at our Plano office.

Why Is Advanced Technology Important When It Comes to Dentistry?
When it comes to dentistry, advanced technology is an essential part of every step. From planning your surgery to designing your custom crown, bridge, or dentures, our Plano doctors incorporate state-of-the-art technology from start to finish. We plan and place implants with a digital planning software that determines the ideal location for your implants using your computed tomography (CT) images. While not always necessary, we believe that digitally guided placement ensures:
- More accurate placement
- Higher success rate of integration
- Faster surgical and recovery time
- Better aesthetic outcomes
For some patients, we can also provide Teeth in a Day so you can enjoy the benefits of dental implants quicker than ever before. If you are unsure whether a certain treatment is right for you, we can create a smile design so you can preview your results.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
At Imagecare Dental Group, we always strive to provide quality service at a fair price. For most patients, the cost to replace a single tooth starts at $102 per month and includes your implant, abutment, and crown.
Dental implants are typically more expensive than traditional methods of tooth replacement including dental bridges and conventional dentures. Additionally, because they are considered "elective," they are not always covered by insurance. However, implant-supported restorations offer various benefits that conventional bridges and dentures do not, making them a great investment in your oral health.
Remember: every implant treatment at our Plano, TX, practice is personalized to the needs, goals, and budget of the individual patient, so the only way to receive an accurate quote is to schedule a consultation.
What to Expect throughout the Dental Implant Process
During your first consultation, we will assess your oral health, conduct a complete screening to ensure that you are a good candidate and create a personalized treatment plan. We use the Carestream cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanner to help us diagnose your condition and plan your treatment.
If you decide that implants are right for you, we will begin planning your surgery. Our doctors use the iTero digital scanner, CT scans, and special software to digitally plan your surgery and create custom surgical guides.
On the day of your surgery, one of our highly trained implant dentists will place the implants at the preplanned locations. If you are nervous about surgery or have a lengthy procedure planned, we can provide sedation. We will also review how to manage pain after implant surgery.
During the next four to six months, your titanium dental implants will fuse with your jawbone in a process known as osseointegration. To ensure a healthy recovery, you should refrain from using tobacco and practice good oral hygiene.
Once your jawbone and implant have successfully fused together, you will come back to our office to receive your abutments. Abutments are the connector pieces between the implant and crown, bridge, or denture. We use our iTero scanner to scan the implant and craft custom abutments.
Delivery of Abutment and Crown
You will come back to our Plano, TX, office to receive your abutment and permanent crown, bridge, or denture. After any necessary adjustments, you can begin enjoying a fully functional, natural-looking smile.

For your comfort, we offer enteral and intravenous (IV) sedation that can be administered during treatment. While sedation is widely used and very safe, we work with a board-certified anesthesiologist to expertly administer IV sedation in-office.

Before you leave our Plano office, our team will provide detailed information on how to care for your new restoration. If any questions or concerns arise during your recovery, we offer 24/7 emergency care.
We can ensure the integrity of your crown, bridge, or denture during regular check-ups and cleanings. Be sure to mention if anything feels loose or if you notice any damage in between these appointments.
