"My first visit to Riverchase Dental today was great! Like most people (I'm assuming), I'm not usually a fan of going to the dentist. But I actually enjoyed going here! Every staff member I came into contact with was beyond helpful and kind. And I spoke to many people during my visit--the receptionist who checked me in; the technician who took my x-rays; the hygienest who told me what to expect when I come in for a cleaning; the dentist; and the financial specialist who checked me out. It was the first time I left the dentist's office feeling like I had no questions left unanswered. Each person was more than willing to answer my questions and ask if there was anything else I was wondering. Very thorough and comforting."- A.M. / Yelp / Jul 28, 2017

What to Expect@headingTag>
Before a dental implant is started, a full exam will be performed by our dentists to determine the health and strength of the gums and jawbone. If the individual is an acceptable candidate for dental implants, oral X-rays and impressions will assist our dentists to decide the best placement for the dental implants in the jaw. The individual may be given sedation and local anesthesia to relax the patient while our dentists put the titanium post into the jaw. In the next 3 - 6 months, the implant and bone will grow together while healing and as soon as the implant is stable, the false tooth or teeth will be joined to the implant through a connector. Our dentists may alter the implant and replacement teeth for a comfortable and lasting fit.
Typical patients have little or no pain after their dental implant procedure, but a few patients may experience temporary discomfort and soreness that may be treated with an over-the-counter pain medication, such as aspirin or Tylenol®. To extend the use of dental implants, patients should start a good home oral care regimen including flossing, brushing, and mouthwash. Consistent dental appointments at Riverchase Dental Care in Coppell, TX for professional cleanings and exams are also vital to caring for implants. Dental implants may last for a long time with proper care, but dental implants may eventually need to be repaired or replaced.
If dental implants are determined to be necessary for health, the patient's dental insurance policy may cover at least part of the expenses. Although, cosmetic dental implants are often not covered by insurance companies. At the patient's dental consultation, the office employees of Riverchase Dental Care can determine their insurance coverage and talk about payment options and financing plans.
