When you have lost the majority of your teeth, then you could have issues eating, speaking, and even maintaining your youthful facial features. To restore your smile, you may benefit from dental implant dentures, all placed by our board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Our team of implant dentistry experts in Dallas, TX, is ready to secure a new smile that can last decades!
Addressing Your Advanced Tooth Loss
When you suffer from minor or major tooth loss, often due to underlying factors like periodontitis, this could limit your meal options and deprive your body of essential nutrients. You may also have trouble speaking clearly, and could feel embarrassed about your appearance, impacting your social life. As the body suspends the flow of calcium and phosphates to the jaw around your lost roots, this could mean a breakdown linked to an older appearance and of course, further tooth loss. To halt these issues and preserve your youthful facial features, you need more than traditional bridges and removable dentures. Instead, you benefit from the placement of dental implants.
Our team is skilled and experienced in the placement of dental implants, and complete these surgeries in-office with a team of trained dental professionals and board-certified oral surgeons. To get started, we will carefully examine your smile to identify the factors behind your tooth loss so we can treat these underlying issues, and also to choose the best areas to insert the implant posts. Made from biocompatible titanium, these posts act as new roots and bonds with the jaw. For an individual implant, we will then connect an abutment to the post and secure a custom crown that blends with your smile. But we also offer fixed implant dentures too!
Attaching Your Dentures
With dentures, we will extract the last few teeth and then insert several posts per arch, often six to eight but as little as four in some cases. These strengthen the jawbone and provide a base to support your new teeth. The prosthetic portion is custom-made to ensure a proper fit, and is connected to the posts in a follow-up visit or sometimes the same day. Your implants dentures function like natural teeth and last for decades, while removable options only last 5 to 10 years on average.
If you have any questions about our fixed prosthetic, then please reach out today so you can start 2024 on the road to a full smile.
