Dallas, TX dentist Dr. D. Bradley Dean offers dental implants for patients that are missing a single tooth or an entire set of teeth. Dental Implants have many benefits but most importantly, they can improve your quality of life and self-esteem.
A dental implant is a small titanium post which is implanted into the jaw bone. This post acts as a prosthetic root which stimulates natural bone growth reducing the risk of jaw recession- a common side effect of missing teeth.

Dental Implants What to Expect
Your first step is a consultation with Dr. Dean. At this consultation he will be able to determine what your options are and if you are a good candidate for dental implants. He can also make recommendations for how you can become a candidate if you’re not already. Then you will schedule a surgery date where Dr. Dean will perform the surgical placement of the dental implant. The dental implant will replace the root of the missing tooth and will need time to fuse with bone. Last, you will have the dental implant uncovered and the abutment attached.
The cost of dental implants varies since each patient is different. We encourage you to schedule a consultation and we will be able to give you a better idea of the costs involved. Dr. Dean works with both Care Credit and Lending Club.
If cared for properly, dental implants can last forty years to a lifetime. It’s important to consistently brush, floss, and follow treatment recommendation given to you by your dentist. Your genetic history, oral hygiene habits, and your diet also play a role in how long dental implants will last.
Most dental insurance companies do not cover the surgical placement of the implant. You will need to contact your dental insurance provider to see how much of the dental implant procedure they may cover.
