The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dallas, TX


Dental implants
are small, titanium rods that are surgically placed into your jawbone. As you heal, the rods fuse with bone providing a strong, stable support for your false teeth. Implants are made up of three parts: the rod (which is placed in the jaw), the abutment (which is attached to the top) and the crown (which attaches to the abutment). Once in place, you will have a complete, functional and beautiful smile. At Dallas Prosthodontics, dental implants are one of our most popular choices for dealing with tooth loss and they offer numerous benefits.

Dental Implants



Improved Eating


Missing teeth, even a few, can have a significant impact on your ability to eat. Digestion starts with your teeth as they break down food making nutrients more accessible. If you can’t effectively break down your food your body will have a harder time absorbing those nutrients. Dentures can help but they can slip, hindering the chewing process. Implants and the ceramic crowns that replace your teeth act just like natural teeth, restoring your ability to eat properly. Not only is eating easier again, you can once again completely break down your food. This means better nutrient absorption, which means better overall health.

Better Speech


Your teeth not only break down food, but they also help you to speak properly and be understood when you do so. This is because your teeth control air flow and your tongue comes in contact with the ones in front to make certain sounds. With dentures, you have a foreign object in your mouth that takes time to get used to, which means you have to alter the way you speak. If the denture slips, it can cause you to have a lisp. Implants don’t present this problem and getting your normal speech back is a simple process.

Permanent


Dentures are removable and they require a lot of careful care and maintenance. You need to remove them every night and clean them with a soft bristled brush and soak them overnight. You will need to use a special denture-cleaning agent because regular toothpaste can be abrasive and leave microscopic scratches that can then harbor bacteria, increasing your risk of developing gum disease. With implants, the crowns are made from ceramic and can be cared for just like your natural teeth. They are not removable (unless you choose removable overdentures) and do not require soaking.

Comfort


Dentures are made with an acrylic base that rests directly on your gums, which puts pressure on your gums and restricts blood flow. It is important that they should be left out every night so your gums can rest. The dentures can slip out of place which happens more frequently as your jaw changes and your dentures no longer fit properly. This slipping can rub against your gums, causing denture sores and pain. As where implants support your false teeth and do not rest on your gums and therefore blood flow is not impeded, nor do implants shift around in your mouth.

Natural Appearance


Even with all of the advancements in denture technology, it is still possible to tell you are wearing them. Implants, on the other hand, look completely natural. Your gums are not covered up and the tissue can form right around the ceramic crowns, creating a natural smile.

Maintain Jaw Health


When you lose your teeth, your jawbone begins to resorb. This happens because your body stops sending as many nutrients to the jaw. The roots of your teeth stimulate the bone, which transmits the message for vitamins and minerals and without teeth there is no communication. Implants mimic the roots of your teeth, so that message is still sent. Your jawbone maintains strength, which means it doesn’t change shape. Therefore, you do not need to worry about replacing your implants every few years as you would with dentures. However, dental implants still need to be taken good care of with annual dental cleanings and exams.

With dental implants, you get your life and your smile back.

Single Tooth Replacement
Dallas, TX


Missing a single tooth can look trivial, but it can really change the appearance of your smile and even affect your dental health. One missing tooth will leave a space that will affect how you chew food, and even disturb your speech production. Thankfully, you can replace just a single tooth without waiting for others to fall out or even causing a detriment to your jawbone health. At Dallas Prosthodontics, we carry out single tooth replacement to help patients restore their smiles, oral health, and ability.

What Is A Single Tooth Replacement?


Single tooth replacement is a procedure our professionals perform to restore a missing tooth for patients. Dental implants are the most suitable solutions for a single tooth replacement. Dental implants consist of three parts. One is a tiny titanium post which is surgically placed inside the jawbone to act as a tooth root. Another is an abutment which holds the third part which is a crown to the titanium post. With so many benefits to offer, dental implants prove to be long lasting solutions with little to worry about.

How Is A Single Tooth Replaced With A Dental Implant?


Once you lose a tooth, our professionals advise that you come for a replacement as soon as possible. This is to prevent the jawbone in that space from losing its density. In your initial appointment, our professionals will examine the vacant space. We will also go through your dental and health records to ensure that you are a fit candidate for a dental implant.

If you do not have adequate jawbone density in the space, you may require an initial bone graft procedure. This will help to rebuild your jawbone to required health. Once healed, the procedure for placing the dental implant will commence. Our team will surgically place the implant post into your jaw, and allow your jawbone to bond with the post during a healing period. The bonding is necessary to hold the post securely.

After the jawbone has healed, holding the implant post firmly, we will proceed to attach the abutment to the post. This may require several weeks to heal. Finally, a crown that has been previously designed to fit your teeth alignment will be placed to complete the tooth replacement.

Benefits Of A Single Tooth Replacement


While the most obvious benefit is an instant and enhanced restoration of your beautiful smile, single tooth implants offer better esthetics for your dentition. They subtly blend in with your natural teeth to give the perfect finished look. With dental implants, your natural teeth are all still retained, as other replacement options may require that you remove or reshape some of them.

Also, replacing a single tooth with dental implants ensures that your teeth alignment is preserved, and more importantly, bone loss is prevented. Dental implants are a good choice for your oral health, and they tend to last a lifetime.

So, do not hesitate about replacing your single missing tooth. You can contact us at Dallas Prosthodontics to learn more about how you can benefit from a single tooth replacement. Call us today at (972) 503-7200 to schedule a fitting consultation.
