Benefits of Dental Implants

Experience the advantages of dental implants: from a stronger bite to a more youthful appearance!

Dental implants are securely fitted into your jawbone, creating a solid base for false teeth. This means you can eat and talk without worrying about them slipping or making noise, unlike dentures. 

Easy to Maintain​

Implant-supported teeth are a worry-free option. They're fixed in your mouth, so no more dealing with removable dentures. Just treat them like your regular teeth ~ it's that simple.

Complete Restoration​

Implants are unique because they replace the root of the tooth and keep your jawbone healthy. This helps prevent bone loss, gum shrinkage, and changes in your face shape.

FAQ

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants provide a permanent solution to replace missing teeth. Because they are fused directly to the jawbone, implants remain secure when speaking and chewing.

Full mouth dental implants also look and feel like natural teeth, providing more confidence and comfort than traditional dentures or bridgework.

Dental implants are small, biocompatible posts that act as artificial tooth roots. They are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. 

Over time, the implants fuse with the bone, creating a stable foundation to replace missing teeth or stabilize dentures and bridges. 

Not only can dental implants restore the function and appearance of missing teeth, but they also help preserve the health of surrounding teeth, preventing further bone loss. This even includes all on 4 dental implants!

Who Is A Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Individuals with good overall oral health, healthy gums and sufficient bone density in the jaw to support the implant are generally the best candidates for the procedure.

If you have lost bone density due to periodontal disease or another condition, you may need a bone grafting procedure before getting implants.

Dental Implant Procedure

What to Expect

The procedure of receiving the different types of  dental implants typically involves several stages. 
Here is an overview of what you can expect:

  • Initial Consultation: At your first consultation, we assess the health of your teeth and gums to determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.
  • Treatment Plan: We develop a customized treatment plan based on your specific needs and any pre-existing dental issues.
  • Implant Surgery: Placing the implant (a small screw-like fixture that acts as an artificial tooth root) into the jawbone.

 

  • Osseointegration: During the healing process the implant will fuse with the surrounding bone tissue creating a stable environment for the replacement teeth. 
  • Attaching the Abutment: Once the implant has fused with the bone tissue, the abutment can be attached to the implant. The abutment is a small connector post the artificial tooth is attached to.
  • Placing the Prosthetic Tooth: After the abutment is in place, the prosthetic tooth (or teeth) are placed onto the abutment. This may also involve attaching a crown, bridge or anchoring dentures, depending on the specific needs of the patient.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Affordable dental implants are a viable solution to missing teeth. For anyone who has dealt with missing teeth for any length of time, implant dentistry can truly be life changing. 

The benefits of dental implants include:

FAQ's

What Are Dental Implants?

DFW dental implants are artificial tooth roots, usually made of titanium, that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They hold replacement teeth or bridges. They are typically done by a specialist like a periodontist vs a dentist.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. The crown attached to the implant may need replacement due to wear and tear, typically after 10-15 years. For implant supported dentures, it's about the same.

Are Dental Implants Painful?

Most patients report minimal discomfort during the implant procedure, often less than a tooth extraction. Local anesthesia is used, and options for sedation may be available. Ask your periodontist if sedation is right for you.

How Long is The Recovery Time For Dental Implants?

The initial healing phase can take from 6 to 12 weeks. Full integration of the implant with the jawbone (osseointegration) varies, typically taking several months.

Can Anyone Get Dental Implants?

Most adults can get dental implants, but good general health, adequate bone density, and healthy gums are essential. Smokers or those with chronic disorders like diabetes may need to be evaluated more thoroughly.

How Do I Care For My Dental Implants?

Dental implants require the same care as natural teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

The cost varies depending on the number of implants and the complexity of the case. Many dental insurance plans partially cover them, and financing options are often available.
