Dental implants are a great solution if you have lost a tooth or require extraction. A single dental implant comprises a titanium anchor or post, an abutment, and a dental crown. Dental implants can restore dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures. Whether you need to replace a single lost tooth or all of the teeth in your smile, treatment with dental implants in our Carrollton, TX, office can give you back a natural-looking, comfortable smile.
Dental Implants in Carrollton, TX
Before implant treatment, we will thoroughly examine your smile to determine if you are a candidate for treatment. Some patients may require bone grafting before implant treatment to have sufficient jaw bone to secure their implants. Other patients may need periodontal therapy, root canal treatment, or tooth extractions to remove tooth and gum infections. Once patients are healthy, we will begin treatment.
We will place the implants in the jaw bone beneath the gums, where they will act as replacement tooth roots. Then we will place a healing cap over the implants while waiting for them to heal and create a permanent restoration. Over a healing period called osseointegration, the implant posts fuse with the jawbone to create a stable foundation for dental restoration. Once the implants fully heal, we attach the permanent, custom-made restoration.
Life with implants will be much more comfortable than without. Patients who receive dental implants benefit from improved speech, biting and chewing, and bone retention. Because dental implants restore teeth at the root, they will feel like natural teeth. Unlike removable restorations like traditional dentures, implant-secured restorations last longer and feel more secure. Dental implant-supported restorations also improve the smile’s aesthetics by restoring gaps in the smile and combatting problems like facial sagging. Implants support healthy bone and gum tissue to create a natural-looking smile.
