Do you have a missing tooth? Have you lost most or all of your natural teeth? Whether you have minor or extensive cases of tooth loss, we can help restore what has been lost with dental implants. At your Dallas, TX dental practice, we can assess your candidacy and even strengthen the weakened portions of your jaw to ensure your smile is implant ready.
When You Need New Teeth
Dental implants can help address the gaps in your smile, whether you have one missing tooth or have lost all of them! When you lose one or more teeth, this can impact how you eat, how clearly you speak, and even your facial structure. Once the body suspends the flow of calcium and phosphates to the areas without tooth roots, this causes the smile to lose structure and break down, creating an older appearance and worsening tooth loss. But with dental implants, we insert a new tooth that not only fills the gaps and restores your ability to eat your favorite foods, but also strengthens the jawbone and prevents negative changes to your facial structure!
Assessing Your Candidacy
To assess your candidacy, our team will take a close look at your jaw. We want to assess the factors behind your tooth loss in case you need treatment to manage these concerns and prevent negative impacts on your new teeth. We also want to make sure your smile can support new teeth. There needs to be enough structure to support one or more dental implants, allowing them to bond with the jaw. That way, they can last decades to come, possibly a lifetime. We can use one to support an individual replacement tooth, or several to secure a bridge or even a full set of fixed dentures. If you have weakened jawbone structure, we could discuss grafting or sinus lifts to strengthen and fortify your jaw. Our team could also discuss options like All-On-Four that requires less structure to support new teeth.
Strengthening Your Smile
Once your dental implants are in place, they will be accepted as new roots, so the flow of calcium and phosphates to the jaw resumes. Your jaw is preserved and you avoid an aged appearance. You also secure your new teeth for decades to come, so you can smile with confidence and enjoy your favorite meals without complication.
