Dental Implants

At Gardner Springs Dentistry, we work with most PPO plans and are happy to help you file your claims. Understanding the details of dental insurance can be confusing, but we're here to assist you in finding the information you need. We'll ensure that you get the most from your coverage.

However, many dental insurance plans don't provide adequate coverage for the treatment you may need or want. For these situations we accept all major credit cards and also offer a variety of financing options to ensure you get the treatment you need in a timely manner.

Give us a call at our Boerne dental office today and we’ll happily assist you in understanding and utilizing your dental insurance benefits. 

Dental implants may seem new, but they’ve actually been used successfully for over 25 years. So you may have heard or read about implants, but don’t understand what makes them different from other types of tooth replacement.

The biggest difference between dental implants and other types of tooth replacement is that implants are not just another cosmetic solution for a missing tooth. Dental implants actually replace your entire missing tooth, including the root!

The implant is a tiny titanium post that is placed surgically in your jaw bone by Dr. Gardner and then allowed to heal. The implant gradually bonds with surrounding bone and tissue and becomes a permanent part of your jaw.

Implants restore the appearance of your smile, but have other benefits as well. First, when your natural root is intact, it keeps your jawbone healthy. When the tooth and root are lost, the jawbone gradually breaks down. Because the implant acts as a replacement root, your jawbone stays healthy.

When the root is missing, adjacent teeth can also start to change position over time. This can cause other teeth to move out of alignment, causing crowding and issues with your dental bite. The design of a dental implant prevents this problem.

If you would like to learn more about how dental implants work and how they can benefit you, please contact our Boerne dental office, and we’ll be happy to arrange a complimentary consultation.
