What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that we use to replace natural teeth. The implant post acts as a natural tooth root and holds a dental prosthetic in place. Implants are biocompatible, which means it will not cause a negative reaction with your natural tissues. The materials we use for dental implants are the same materials for medical implants.

After a surgeon places the post, they place the abutment. This piece connects the implant and restoration. 

The final prosthetic can be a crown, dental bridge, or denture. We recommend a single dental implant if you have a missing tooth. Rows and arches of missing teeth can use implant-supported bridges or dentures. However, we will not replace every missing tooth with an implant. 

Benefits of Implants

Dental implants are the gold standard of tooth replacement. Implants offer many benefits: 

  • Improved appearance: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. They can restore and maintain your natural smile with tooth-colored porcelain materials. Because they look natural, implants can help boost your self-esteem and confidence.
  • Improved speech: Dental implants can help improve speech and pronunciation. Restorations like dentures can slip and cause speech problems. Implants restore teeth at the root and fill missing tooth gaps.
  • Improved comfort: Dental implants are secure and do not shift or move in your mouth. Implants are more comfortable than options like traditional dentures.
  • Better Bite Function: Dental implants function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat and chew normally without any discomfort or restrictions. Dental implants are permanent fixtures in your mouth, eliminating the need for messy adhesives and cleaning solutions that denture wearers must use.
  • Long-lasting solution: Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. They offer a cost-effective and durable option for tooth replacement. The implant posts themselves are permanent. Implants will stay in place as long as you care for your oral health.
  • Improved oral health: After you lose a missing tooth, your jaw bone loses support. As a result, you may experience facial sagging. Implants preserve bone density and prevent further bone loss in the jaw. In addition, dental implants do not require altering or damaging adjacent teeth like dental bridges.

Before treatment, we will ensure you are a good candidate for dental implants. First, we will ensure infection does not impact the stability of the implant posts. If you have chronic pain or infection in one or more teeth, you will need tooth removal. Our dentists are some of the best in the North Texas area for simple, quick, and painless tooth extractions. 

Our office also provides gum disease treatment. If you have gum inflammation, we can provide cleanings to remove harmful bacteria. We may recommend surgery if you have advanced gum disease.

We also offer bone grafting. Bone grafting is a great solution if a patient is missing teeth or has bone loss in their jaw. We take donor bone or bone tissue from another part of the mouth during grafting. Then, we place the healthy tissue.

This procedure will help restore the jaw to its natural shape and state for the best dental implant treatment results.

The Treatment Process

The procedure is fairly simple, but will require much healing time and patience. First, the oral surgeon will make an incision into your gums to reach the bone. Then, she will insert the titanium post into the jawbone. She will seal the incision area and have you wait until your mouth heals before placing the final restoration.

After a couple of months, you will return for the final step. Our dentist will place dental crowns or an implant-supported denture depending on how many teeth you replace.

Flower Mound Family Dentistry offers both regular dental implants and implant dentures. Dental implants are also an excellent option for patients who want complete smile restoration.

How to Care for Implants

First, maintain a good oral hygiene routine to care for dental implants. Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Floss daily to remove plaque and debris between the teeth and around the implant.

Visit our dentist regularly for check-ups and professional cleanings to ensure the implants are in good condition. Contact our office if you experience pain, swelling, or discomfort around the implant. We will evaluate changes in the fit of your restoration.

Implant Costs

Many patients wonder how much implants cost. Multiple factors impact the cost of implants:

  • Materials
  • Number of implants
  • Type of restoration
  • Anesthetic and sedation

While restorations that use implant support cost more, they last longer than removable options. Before treatment, we will review the cost of treatment and work to keep it within your budget.

Our office accepts CareCredit and Alphaeon to make implants affordable. These financial plans offer a simple way to pay for treatment. You can pay for treatment in manageable chunks.
