Dr. Jones is one of only a few dentists in Dallas who has been placing and restoring dental implants for over 30 years. A full, healthy smile is important for many reasons. A full set of teeth can boost your self-esteem and make you feel more comfortable in the office or in a social setting. Aside from that, missing teeth give bacteria and plaque extra places to hide and breed, leading to a host of health problems. The space left by missing teeth can also cause the supporting jawbone to deteriorate, making it more difficult to provide a comfortable, functioning restoration. Spaces in your smile give your remaining teeth room to shift out of their proper alignment, leading to orthodontic problems and misalignment. Misalignment is not just a cosmetic issue but can also lead to damaged teeth and tooth enamel. And while a straight, complete smile allows you to eat and speak comfortably, missing teeth can interfere with dental function and movement.
For many people, a great way to prevent these problems are through dental implants. Dental implants are sturdy tooth replacements that allow you to enjoy your favorite meals and can be cared for just as you would your natural teeth. They can be brushed and flossed, and do not need to be removed to be cleaned or adjusted. They look like your natural teeth, and no one will know you have implants. With proper care from our dentists, your dental implants can last a lifetime.
Dental implants are posts made of titanium, a metal that is both safe and compatible with the human body. Each implant post is placed directly into your jawbone where they will stimulate the growth of the bone. This process will ensure that your implant remains firmly in place and will strengthen the hard tissue After you have healed from the implant surgery, our dentists will attach the artificial teeth to top of the posts. These will blend in with your natural teeth and allow you to enjoy a beautiful and fully functioning smile once again. You will need to brush and floss your implants just as you do your natural teeth and continue to see the dentist for your regular cleanings and examinations.
