Knowing the Benefits of Dental Implants

Tooth Replacement Options Customized to You

Most patients assume that if they have missing teeth, dental bridges and conventional dentures are the default solution. But bridges require adjacent healthy teeth to be present and permanently modified to act as the foundation. Dentures often become loose and slip when you eat, speak, or even smile and can cause gagging or sores on the gums. Those solutions can’t offer the bone stimulation needed to maintain a healthy jawbone or restore the function needed to eat a varied diet. Dental implants are the modern solution designed to meet these needs and more. Fixed securely to your jawbone, dental implants can return over 99% of the natural biting and chewing power. Dental Implants can replace one tooth, a row of teeth, or a complete arch of missing teeth using either single implants and crowns or a combination of dental implants and a custom, natural-looking bridge of teeth. In all cases, dental implants give the possibility to eat comfortably, feel confident in a complete smile, improve your oral and physical health, and have an overall better quality of life. For these many reasons, implants are the preferred solution for replacing any number of missing teeth.

The Process to Your Permanent Solution

Step 1: Consultation

Most of our patients either come to us ready for dental implants or can become candidates after a few initial appointments. Your dental implant treatment plan is unique to you; your mouth is not a one-size-fits-all approach. We’ll determine the best path forward by learning your smile goals and assessing your dental and medical health as part of your consultation with our oral surgeon in Wichita Falls, TX. During the initial visit, you’ll receive an examination, and we’ll review imaging of the treatment site. These are typically taken with a cone beam CT machine for an in-depth look at your jawbone health. We’ll provide a detailed review of your treatment plan and walk you through what to expect along each step of this process. Before you leave, we’ll schedule your next visit for your dental implant surgery.

Step 2: Dental Implant Surgery

Your appointment begins with gentle administration of sedation or anesthesia. Licensed to administer IV sedation as well as general anesthesia, our oral surgeon will keep you pain-free and comfortable. If you require preliminary treatments including tooth extractions or bone grafting, our oral surgeon are often able to provide these during the procedure. Next, using a custom surgical guide, each dental implant will be precisely placed in pre-planned locations in your jawbone. We only use high-quality dental implants from leading manufacturers so we can ensure the longevity of your treatment. After placement, you’re frequently able to immediately receive a new tooth or bridge of natural-looking teeth leaving you with a fully functional and complete smile.

Step 3: Final Smile

It may take up to three months plus to heal completely. During this period, your implants will permanently bond with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. It’s this bond with the biocompatible implant posts that offer the security and function dental implants are known for. Upon healing, you’ll be able to receive your final implant restorations. These fixed teeth will be customized to you, complimenting the shade of remaining healthy teeth for a seamless smile. From then on you won’t have trouble eating or feel embarrassed when you laugh, speak, or smile. Give your dental implants and natural teeth routine care and you may never again need to have a missing tooth replaced!
