What Are Dental Implants?
If you have badly compromised teeth, seeking professional care is necessary for your oral health. To help Copperas Cove, TX patients reliably resolve extracted or lost teeth, our dentists are thrilled to provide natural-looking dental implants to achieve tooth restoration. A dental implant is made up of a metal post that serves as a stand-in tooth root. A personalized crown, bridge, or denture takes the place of the visible portion of the missing tooth or teeth. If you are dealing with missing teeth or require a tooth extraction, set up an evaluation at ACE Dental of Cove and inquire about dental implants.

"I called Friday morning to ask for an appointment for a tooth extraction and I was shocked to be offered a same day appointment and the person I spoke to was INCREDIBLY nice. I read that they did payment plans and they had great reviews so I figured, well I’m desperate so I’ll give it a try. The clinic was only a short drive for me and when I got there I didn’t know what to expect. The lobby was nice and the staff were welcoming. The online registration was easy and when I got lead back to meet the dentist I was really appreciative of how incredibly kind and sweet she was. I explained to her my history and I was treated with the utmost respect and understanding. I didn’t feel judged at all. For patients without insurance in the aftermath of a pandemic and job losses and insurance cancellations; it meant the world to me to not feel shamed. This was the absolute best experience I’ve ever had and I will be back and will definitely highly recommend them. Thank you Ace for the compassion!!"- A.M. / Google / Aug 21, 2021

Am I a Candidate For a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are utilized to take the place of one or more damaged teeth. You may be considering implants if you have missing teeth, require extractions, or are unhappy with your current restoration. To be successful, dental implants need enough bone tissue, healthy gum tissues, and a stable oral environment. Many people may require other treatments before they are thought of as ideal candidates. Dental implants might not be right for you when you are pregnant, smoke cigarettes, or have certain medical issues. At your appointment, one of our dentists can help you decide if fixed implants are right for you and your needs.
What To Expect With A Dental Implant
To place a fixed implant, the implant must be precisely positioned and topped with a dental restoration (like dentures, bridges, and crowns). When the area is ready for the implant, it will be numbed with local anesthesia. Nitrous oxide sedation might also be used to allow you to feel calm during your visit. The metal screw will be surgically placed within your bone at a specific spot and left to heal for several months. As soon as the implant area has healed, you will come back to our office and one of our dentists will set a custom denture, crown, or bridge and evaluate the alignment of your bite.
Recovery Following A Dental Implant
Men and women who have this procedure might notice swelling, bruising, and sensitivity close to the impacted region. Prescribed or over-the-counter pain relievers and ice packs may help alleviate some post-procedure discomfort. When the titanium implant has merged with the jawbone and the custom crown, denture, or bridge is placed, it's crucial to maintain a dental care routine with daily brushing and flossing. When you come in for future appointments, we will use precise dental tools to clean the oral implants and assess the health of your tooth replacements.
Insurance Coverage for Implants
Part of your dental implant surgery or restoration may be covered by dental insurance, but that depends on your coverage plan. A member of our business team will reach out to your insurance carrier and help you get the most out of your coverage before determining any out-of-pocket expenses. At ACE Dental of Cove, we want to help you attain much-needed services for your dental health so we accept many easy payment solutions, such as affordable financing plans.
Due to the developments in contemporary dental procedures, there are several options to treat tooth loss with fixed implants.
