Lasting Benefits of Dental Implants

Comparing Your Tooth Replacement Options

Most patients are aware, 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. Ultimately, both solutions can’t offer the bone stimulation needed to maintain a healthy jawbone or the restored function you need to eat a varied diet. Dental implants are the modern solution designed to meet these needs and more.

Securely fixed to your jawbone, dental implants return over 99% of natural biting and chewing power. They 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 make it possible to eat comfortably with durable teeth, feel confident in a complete smile, improve your oral and physical health, and live an overall better quality of life. For this reason, implants are one of the preferred solutions for replacing any number of missing teeth.

Three Steps to a New Smile

Step 1: Consultation

Most of our patients either come to us ready for dental implants or can become candidates after a few initial treatments. Your dental implant treatment plan will be unique to you. We do not take the one-size-fits-all approach. We’ll determine the best path forward by learning your specific smile goals and assessing your dental and medical health as part of your consultation with our oral surgeon in Wichita Falls, TX. During this visit, you’ll also receive an examination, and we’ll review imaging of your 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 full mouth dental implant surgery.

Step 2: Dental Implant Surgery

On the day of your surgery, you’ll be able to check in to our front desk before being taken to your private suite. We offer sedation dentistry solutions to ensure you feel relaxed throughout your visit; our patients typically report only minor discomfort, if any. Once you’re comfortable we’ll place four or more dental implants into pre-planned locations in your jawbone. We consider it our responsibility to ensure your implant is placed as accurately and successfully as possible to guarantee it lasts as long as possible. Whether you need one arch or a full mouth of new teeth, your entire surgical phase can be completed in just one day. If you qualify, as many of our patients do, we can also immediately place your temporary teeth which function and look just like natural teeth. You’ll never go a single day without a complete smile again!

Step 3: Final Smile

It may take three months or more to heal completely. During this period, your implants will permanently bond with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This bond with the biocompatible implant posts gives the security and function dental implants are known for. After you’ve healed, you’ll be able to receive your final restorations. These fixed teeth will be customized to you, complimenting the shade of remaining healthy teeth for a seamless smile. From this point 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!

Why See an Oral Surgeon?

Receiving dental implants can significantly benefit your daily life as well as your health. But before you commit to treatment, make sure you see an implant surgeon you can trust. Although some general dentists have the experience to place dental implants, they haven’t had the specialized training that oral and maxillofacial surgeon have to treat any case with ease and efficiency. Oral and maxillofacial surgeon have specific training in implant surgery and anesthesia, but they also have medical training. That means our team welcomes even those with pre-existing medical conditions and those in need of complex care that many dentists turn away. We frequently see patients with advanced bone loss, severe dental anxiety, and facial trauma. We welcome you to learn more about our surgical team in Wichita Falls, TX and see how their specialized care can transform your oral health, overall health, and quality of life.

Making Dental Implants Affordable
