Chew & Smile Again With Dental Implants In Plano

If you are missing teeth, you’re acutely aware of the immediate impacts. In addition to feeling self-conscious about your smile, you’re not able to eat many foods and may even struggle to speak clearly. Long term, you will lose bone density in your jaw, which can make you look older before your time. With dental implants in Plano, though, your jaw will stay strong. That’s because implants stimulate your jaw in a way similar to tooth roots.

In addition to keeping your bone intact, implants will:

  • Keep your teeth securely in place, so you don’t have to worry about embarrassing slippage
  • Give you chewing power nearly equal to what you had before, so you can enjoy all your favorite foods
  • Replace any number of teeth, from a single tooth to every tooth in your mouth
  • Provide many different options for replacement teeth, including bridges and dentures
  • Feel so comfortable you’ll likely forget you even have implants
  • Last for many decades with proper care

To schedule a consultation with your implant dentist, call 972-787-0892 today. Second opinions are free.

Teeth Implants Fuse With Your Jaw For Secure Dental Restorations

Teeth implants are fundamentally different from other kinds of tooth replacements. After your dentist places them in your jaw, they actually become a part of your jaw in a process called osseointegration. Once healed, they function much like natural tooth roots. Unlike some dental practices, which will send you to an oral surgeon for implant placement, our team performs your entire procedure.

Depending on the kind of dental implants you receive, your dental implant treatment will go something like this:

  • We’ll assess your jaw’s readiness for implants using advanced technology like digital X-rays.
  • If needed, we may recommend an oral surgery procedure like a bone graft to strengthen your jaw.
  • When your jaw is ready, you’ll return to our office, where your implant dentist will carefully insert implants into your jaw.
  • Once the implants have healed, we’ll attach your chosen dental restorations to the implants. For some methods, we can attach temporary teeth the same day we place your implants.

Many patients require no more than local anesthesia for their dental implants procedure. However, you can also receive dental sedation if you’d like. We offer three kinds: laughing gas, oral sedation, and IV sedation.

Find The Right Implants To Give You Back Your Smile

Thanks to the expertise of our team, we offer many different procedures:

  • Implant Crowns – To replace a single tooth, we can attach one dental crown to one implant.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges – It’s possible to replace several teeth by anchoring a dental bridge to implants.
  • Implant-Secured Dentures – You can choose from several kinds of dental implant dentures, all of which stay in place better than conventional dentures.
  • All-on-4® Or All-on-6 – It may be possible to receive your implants and replacement teeth in just one appointment with a procedure that uses just a few implants to support complete arches of fixed teeth.
  • Mini Dental Implants – Smaller than standard implants, these are especially useful for stabilizing dentures in patients who don’t have enough bone for conventional implants.
