What You Need to Know About Dental Implants

Posted .

If you are missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Jones and Dr. Buck may suggest dental implants in Dallas, Texas. A dental implant consists of a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone and a dental restoration, like a dental crown. At our office, we provide the dental implant restoration.

Dental implants are a popular choice because of their many advantages. Simply put, dental implants can restore both the beauty and the functionality of your smile. Dental implants do not shift or slip. Because of this, they provide the security and stability of natural teeth. Dental implants become a permanent part of your mouth. They are cared for just like your remaining teeth. Implant placement does not require the alteration of nearby teeth, so no healthy tooth structure is lost. Dental implants prevent the nearby teeth from shifting. This helps preserve your jawbone and the shape of your face.

Before suggesting a dental implant, our dentists will examine your gums to make sure they are healthy and determine if you have enough bone structure in your jaw to sustain a dental implant. To be a candidate for an implant, you must also be in good health.
