Dental Implant Dentistry, Dallas, TX
Dental implants are an option for almost anyone who has one or more missing teeth. Single tooth dental implants can fill in an unsightly gap in your smile, while larger dental implant systems can replace whole arches of teeth.
Dental implants look natural, feel natural, and can even help to preserve the health of your jaw. They are a modern, convenient option to the problem of tooth loss in adults of all ages.
Strong As Natural Teeth
Dental implants are every bit as strong as natural teeth. Titanium supports are implanted deep into the jaw, fixing the implants securely in place. The natural-looking crowns that fit on top of these supports do not chip or crack easily.
With dental implants, you can enjoy all your favorite foods. They are strong enough to tackle anything from crunchy green apples to a juicy steak. Once the implant site has healed, you can eat without discomfort or worries about your dentures slipping out of place.
Replacing Lost Teeth
Because implants transfer chewing forces through your jaw just like natural teeth, they help to prevent bone loss, which often happens after teeth are lost. Whether you are missing one tooth, or a whole arch of teeth, dental implants offer a permanent solution. And, unlike other options for replacing teeth, such as dental bridges, dental implants do not require the adjacent teeth to be ground down.
Dental implants can often be placed during a single session. You will be given a local anesthetic to prevent pain. Depending on the exact procedure and your own preferences, you may also receive a sedative to help you feel relaxed. You might experience a little discomfort after implant placement, yet this subsides quickly so you will soon be able to begin using your new teeth.
Benefits of Implants
• Looks just like natural teeth.
• Preserves jaw bone strength.
• Considered a permanent solution.
• Enables you to enjoy your favorite foods.
The benefits of dental implants can change lives. They give you back the ability to enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about dentures slipping out. You can smile with confidence, knowing that the implants give the appearance of perfect teeth. Once the implants are fitted, they usually last for decades, or even a lifetime, so you can get on with your life without worrying about your teeth.
Dental implants can be placed in most adults with missing teeth. Because children and teenagers have bones that are still growing, they are not good candidates for dental implants. Once their bone development is complete, they can have implants fitted.
If you have significant bone loss in your jaw, then it might be difficult to place full dental implants. However, the dentist might be able to fit a mini implant. The best way to find out whether you are a candidate is to book an appointment with the dentist and talk about your options.
