Have you lost a tooth due to accident, injury, or illness? If so, a dental implant might be a good solution to replace the missing tooth. It is important to “close the gap” between missing teeth to prevent bacteria and other germs from forming in the open gum.

Trophy Club cosmetic dentist David Crumpton, DDS, offers his patients dental implants. A dental implant is an artificial tooth that is made from medical-grade, titanium steel. The final results are natural-looking and your friends and family won’t notice that it’s not your real tooth.

The most common type of dental implant is the root implant. This type of implant requires several visits to our cosmetic dental practice in Trophy Club. During the initial consultation with our cosmetic dentist, we will determine the best type of implant based on the location of the missing tooth. At the following appointment, the dental implant will be surgically inserted into your jaw. Once this surgery is completed, the implant base will need to properly heal. This can take between three and eight months. After your jawbone has healed, you will return to our Trophy Club dental office to have the implant fitted with a new tooth.

Dental implants are not typically covered by dental insurance. At David Crumpton, DDS, want to help you get the smile you deserve. That’s why we offer financing through CareCredit and offer our own in-house dental benefits plan. We will work with you to develop a payment plan that best fits your budget.
