When you lose your natural teeth, your jaw can gradually shrink to cause further tooth loss and a prematurely aged appearance, with sunken cheeks and even a ptotic chin. But with dental implants, we can support new teeth that also preserve your jaw and facial structure. With our team of implant dentistry experts in Dallas, TX, we can help you enjoy a new smile and preserve your youthful facial features.

How Tooth Loss Impacts Facial Structure

When we begin to lose our natural teeth, our body will respond by suspending the flow of key nutrients to the area around the missing root. Without these nutrients, the bone tissue will gradually lose mass and density, breaking down to cause further tooth loss and for some, a prematurely aged appearance. But with dental implants, we can not only replace your missing teeth, but do so in a way that halts the loss of mass and density, stimulating the growth of new jawbone structure to preserve your youthful facial features, and secure your new teeth can last for decades to come, far longer than removable dentures or dental bridges.

Inserting Your New Roots

We begin by carefully examining your smile with advanced imaging technology, so we can assess the strength of the jawbone and choose the best areas, angles, and positions to insert the implant posts. Implants are biocompatible titanium posts that act as new roots, and will bond with the bone structure. We carefully insert them surgically. For individual ones, we may wait for the placement area to heal before we attach the crown that completes the new root. For those receiving fixed dentures or bridges, in the same visit or in one down the road we will connect the prosthetic to the posts, completing your new smile.

The Long-Term Benefits 

Since they halt the breakdown of the jaw, this means they can last for decades to come, possibly a lifetime for others. You will be able to enjoy your favorite foods again, and will never worry about your prosthetic slipping when you eat or speak. You care for them as you would natural teeth too, and with proper attention they can stay in place for years to come, offering a bright and natural appearance in the process.
