Dental Implants in McKinney TX
If you have broken or missing teeth, dental implants are a permanent, natural looking solution. A dental implant is a titanium post that replaces the root of a missing tooth. The implant supports dental crowns, dental bridges or dentures. When placed and fitted properly, the crown, bridge or denture feels, looks and functions like your own natural teeth. Implant supported replacement teeth are the strongest, most lifelike and durable option available. Because the dental implant procedure doesn't affect any of your healthy teeth, it is a conservative treatment option for replacing missing or broken-down teeth.
When your implant surgery is complete, you will be fitted with aesthetic, durable, temporary teeth. While the implant heals, your final teeth will be created in the dental lab. Once the teeth come back from the lab, Dr. Prida will place the permanent teeth, making sure the fit, feel and functions are perfect.
The entire implant procedure is performed right here in our McKinney TX dental office. Dr. Prida uses advanced technology to plan out the proper placement of your implants and how the replacement tooth or teeth will fit into your bite. You will receive precise, efficient and minimally invasive treatment. When both you and Dr. Prida agree that the new restoration looks and feels completely natural, you'll have a beautiful new smile with teeth that can last a lifetime.

Our Dental Implant Services
- Dental implants for individual or several missing teeth
- Implant-supported bridges for multiple missing teeth
- Implant-supported dentures (fixed and removable) for a full arch of missing teeth
- Mini Dental Implants (MDIs) for denture stabilization

Advanced technology and the latest implant procedures allow Dr. Prida to place dental implants and provide you with a fully-functional crown, multiple teeth or full arch of replacement teeth in one day, provided there is sufficient bone support. If the implant isn't stable enough to handle chewing pressure, Dr. Prida will place a temporary cosmetic restoration (something used to restore or replace a tooth or teeth) that is lifelike and aesthetic.
Benefits of Dental Implants
An important benefit of dental implants is that they transfer the pressure from chewing into your jawbone, which in turn, promotes bone growth and preserves bone volume and density. Without this pressure, bone loss will occur.
Another huge advantage is the fact that you can have a tooth, or multiple teeth, replaced without affecting healthy teeth. There is no cutting-down of healthy teeth, as with a traditional crown or bridge. In this sense, Dr. Prida considers implants the most conservative treatment for tooth replacement. His approach is to keep all of your teeth as healthy and natural as possible.
Average Cost of Dental Implants Differ from Patient to Patient
The most common dental implant question patients ask is "What is the average cost for dental implants?" The cost of a dental implant varies depending on your oral needs. If you want an estimate we encourage you to schedule an appointment with the McKinney dentists at Stonelodge Dental.
The cost of a dental implant can range between $1,000 to $3,000 dollars depending on your exact needs. You will also want to factor in the abutment which is usually about $300 to $500, and the crown which is usually $1,000 to $2,000. If your teeth need to be extracted that is about $100 to $500 for each extraction.
Depending on the strength and density of your jaw, a bone graft may be needed to ensure a secure and stable ground for the implant itself. Bone grafts range from $400 to $600.
If you are using insurance, we can help you determine how much they will cover and factor that into the cost. Because dental implant prices have a broad range we want you to schedule your appointment to get a correct estimate.
Dental implants are the most natural looking tooth replacement option thats durable and long-lasting. Where traditional dental bridges and crowns can last several decades, dental implants and their restorations, when cared for properly, can last you a lifetime. Schedule your appointment today.

Dental implants have advantages and benefits over other types of teeth replacement. The biggest advantage is the fact that an implant replaces a tooth root and can handle the same chewing pressure as a tooth root. Traditional dentures cannot handle normal chewing power and will prevent you from eating all of the foods you love.
