Dental Implants – Frisco, TX
Permanent Tooth Replacements
When a tooth goes missing, the jaw bone loses stimulation from the root. As a result, the body diverts those nutrients elsewhere in the body, leaving the jaw bone weaker and less able to provide adequate support for the remaining teeth. Out of the options for replacing missing teeth, dental implants are the only choice that addresses the entire tooth structure, including the root. At Archway Dental, Dr. Parmar is able to offer this treatment to give you back your smile’s confidence, strength, and beauty. Are you interested in knowing if you qualify for dental implants in Frisco, TX? Contact us today to schedule a consultation!

Benefits of Dental Implants
Because dental implants replace the root and the crown of the missing tooth, they keep the jaw bone stimulated and strong, helping it retain its shape. This helps the jaw bone give the remaining teeth enough support to avoid future tooth loss. In general, dental implants are about 98 percent successful even 10 years after placement, and dental implants have been known to last more than 30 years! Basically, you could enjoy your replacement teeth for the rest of your lifetime.
Indications for Dental Implants
Another benefit of dental implants is that they are so versatile and can be used in basically any tooth-replacement scenario. Whether you need to replace just one tooth or a whole arch, there’s a dental implant solution that can meet your needs.
Missing Single Tooth
For one lost tooth, instead of anchoring to the two healthy teeth that surround the gap, one dental implant is placed into the jaw bone, which provides a firm foundation. Once the post has become integrated with the jaw bone, we’ll place a connector and then the dental crown on top.
Missing Multiple Teeth
Regardless of the location of your missing teeth, we can combine just a few dental implants to hold onto a dental bridge or partial denture. Implant-retained restorations don’t rely on (or potentially damage) the teeth around the missing ones, helping you preserve more of your natural smile.
Missing All Teeth
Even if all of your teeth are missing, dental implants can be used to restore a strong smile. Using four to six implant posts, we can affix your custom dentures and secure them in place. With this added stability, you can bite and chew just as you did before—without worrying that your replacement teeth will slip out of position.
If you are interested in pursuing this advanced treatment, we have good news for you! You don’t have to travel to several dental offices to get the care you need. Dr. Parmar has the training and experience to perform every step from beginning to end right here in our Frisco dental office. It all starts with a consultation at Archway Dental. We’ll walk you through the entire procedure and help you get the natural-looking results you’re looking for.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
It’s important to remember that dental implants are a long-term investment in your smile. They provide benefits that other replacement options don’t, and they are meant to last for decades longer than traditional bridges or dentures. For that reason, although dental implants do cost more upfront, they often prove to be the wiser financial decision. During your consultation, Dr. Parmar will evaluate your needs and be able to give you an honest, accurate estimate for treatment, and our team will work with you to make your dental implants more affordable.Learn More

Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?
If you are missing one, multiple or even all of your teeth, you likely qualify as a good candidate for dental implants! Generally speaking, candidates for implant treatment must have healthy gums and a jawbone that is strong and deep enough to anchor the implant posts. However, even if you have suffered from some bone deterioration, you may still be able to get dental implants after undergoing a bone graft procedure. Bone grafting helps rebuild and strengthen strategic points of the jawbone.
Can Dental Implants Fail?
Dental implants are among the most effective tooth replacement solutions available today. In fact, according to the International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Implants, they have a success rate of approximately 95%! Dental implant failure is very rare and can often be traced to one of the following factors:
- Tobacco use
- Weak or insufficient jawbone
- Gum disease
- Other oral infections that prevent an implant from fusing with the jawbone
How Do I Care for My New Dental Implant?
As mentioned above, one major advantage of dental implants is their incredibly long lifespan. Fortunately, you do not need to drastically change your personal hygiene habits to ensure your implants remain a part of your smile for many decades to come. Instead, just be sure to follow these 3 tips:
- Brush your teeth twice a day for a full two minutes each time
- Floss diligently at least once a day
- Visit Archway Dental every six months for a dental exam and routine checkup
Will My Dental Insurance Cover the Cost of Dental Implants?
While every dental insurance plan is slightly different, many still consider implants to be a cosmetic procedure and thus do not provide full coverage. However, you may still be able to take advantage of your insurance benefits if you must undergo implant-related treatment, such as gum disease therapy or a bone grafting procedure. If you would like assistance understanding the details of your dental insurance plan, do not hesitate to ask our knowledgeable and experienced staff! We are always happy to help patients understand their insurance coverage and maximize their benefits in order to reduce out-of-pocket-expenses.
What Dental Problems Can Implants Prevent?
In addition to restoring your dental function and improving your appearance, dental implants can help address other dental issues as well, such as:
- Dental Drift – Did you know that healthy teeth can gradually drift into the gap left by a missing tooth? This problem, known as dental drift, can lead to serious bite problems. Dental implants help keep teeth in their correct positions.
- Sunken Face – Tooth roots stimulate the jawbone and keep it strong. When a tooth falls out and the roots no longer provide stimulation, the jawbone slowly shrinks away, often leaving the person’s face looking aged and sunken. Implants replace both the missing tooth and the important tooth root structure.
- Poor Nutrition – Each tooth is designed to help eat certain kinds of foods (e.g., molars help grind up tough foods like meat). Missing teeth can make it difficult to eat balanced meals and get the nutrition that you need.
