Concerned About Costs? We offer financing options
Our Boerne dental practice is not contracted with any dental insurance providers. We feel this allows us to provide the highest level of care possible without insurance restrictions. However, we are happy to help you file the needed paperwork for direct reimbursement from your dental insurance. Though dental implants are not typically covered by insurance, restorations and related treatments often are.
To help patients make treatment more affordable, we accept CareCredit®. This allows patients to finance the cost of their dental implant treatment in affordable monthly payments. We also accept American Express, Cash, Check, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa.
Dental Implant Candidacy
Are in good oral health
Patients must be free of tooth decay and gum disease before dental implant placement. This ensures a healthy foundation for your implant and restorations and minimizes your risk of implant failure. We offer comprehensive dental options to help you achieve optimal oral health to qualify.
Have sufficient jawbone
Patients must have sufficient jawbone material before dental implant placement. This ensures the implants have enough bone material to graft to. If you do not initially qualify for dental implants due to bone loss, our dentist offers bone grafting to build back jaw strength.
Do not use tobacco products
Tobacco use has been linked to an increased risk of dental implant failure and can increase your risk of other oral health issues. It is suggested that patients who smoke or use tobacco products quit before their implant placement to give them the best chance at success.

Maintaining Your New Smile
Because your restoration is secured to the implants, you will treat your restoration just like natural teeth. Be sure to brush twice a day for at least two minutes each time, and floss daily. Don't forget to attend regular dental appointments at our Boerne, TX, dental practice for exams and cleanings to keep your smile healthy for years to come.
With proper care and maintenance, your denture, bridge, or crown can last 15 years or more. Your implants themselves are designed to last a lifetime.
