Tooth loss can impact daily activities such as eating and speaking, affect your confidence and your oral health. The loss of teeth affects your oral health by weakening the jawbone and as it does your jaw changes shape. Any remaining teeth can shift in your mouth, throwing off your bite. At Dallas Prosthodontics, we strive to provide you with the best possible solutions for tooth loss by restoring the functions of your teeth and protecting your oral health. Dental implants allow us to do just that.

What are Implants?


Dental implants are small, titanium (or zirconium) rods that we surgically place into your jawbone. As you heal, the rods fuse with your bone and become like the roots of your natural teeth. We place abutments on the top of the rods, then attach your false teeth to them. Implants are a permanent solution to tooth loss, restoring your life back to normal all while maintaining the integrity of your jawbone.

Multiple Tooth Implants


If you have two or three missing teeth next to each other, a common solution used to be a bridge. To place a bridge, adjacent healthy teeth need to be trimmed down so that the crowns can fit over them. Those teeth become anchors to hold the bridge in place. Multiple tooth implants, also often referred to as implant supported bridges, eliminate the need for preparing perfectly healthy adjacent teeth. Some bridges can be supported by a single implant or you may need an implant for each missing tooth. With an oral exam and x-rays, we can make the best choice for how many implants you will need.

Fixed Overdentures


In the event of a full arch of missing teeth, implants can take the place of traditional dentures. Where dentures are removable and are supported by your gums, implants are a permanent solution to tooth loss. The rods act like the roots of natural teeth and support the overdenture, saving your gums from suffocation. Fixed overdentures are screwed in place and are not usually removed unless we need to perform maintenance on them. These overdentures can be treated just like your natural teeth and don’t require any extra cleaning aside from normal oral hygiene.

Removable Overdentures


Removable overdentures are similar to fixed. They are still a permanent solution to tooth loss, that maintains the integrity of your jaw and uses implants to support the overdenture. However, instead of screwing the overdenture into place, it snaps or clips onto the implants and can easily be removed by you for cleaning.

Your tooth loss restoration needs are unique. For this reason, Dallas Prosthodontics has several options for dental implants to provide you with the best solution.

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.
