What Are Dental Implants And Why Should You Get Them

Dental implants are frames that are surgically positioned into your jawbone that then allow our dental implant specialists to place the replacement teeth on them. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.

Despite improvements in dental care, millions of Americans suffer tooth loss, mostly due to tooth decay, periodontal disease, or injury. For many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. But, today, dental implants are available.

Are Dental Implants For You?
If you have a missing tooth or have pain eating or want a permanent solution for keeping your smile, dental implants may be the solution for you. Conventional dentures last up to five to ten years. However, dental implants can last up to decades if kept in good condition. If you are still considering getting dental implants and don’t want to spend thousands of dollars, call us at (972)-276-0159. Contact us anytime!

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?



Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.

Improved speech.

With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.

Improved comfort.

Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.

Easier eating.

Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.

Improved comfort.

Dental implants don't require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health.

Improved self-esteem.

Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.

Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.

Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
Normal Cleaning

Dental implants require the same care as real teeth, including brushing, flossing, rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash, and regular dental check-ups.

What Is Involved in Getting a Dental Implant? 

The first step in the dental implant process is the development of an individualized treatment plan. The plan addresses your specific needs and is prepared by our Board-certified in oral and maxillofacial pathologyDr. Ben. His approach provides coordinated care based on the implant option that is best for you. 

Next, the tooth root implant, which is a small post made of titanium, is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth. As the jawbone heals, it grows around the implanted metal post, anchoring it securely in the jaw. The healing process can take from six to 12 weeks. 

Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post -- called an abutment -- is attached to the post to securely hold the new tooth. To make the new tooth or teeth, your dentist makes impressions of your teeth and creates a model of your bite (which captures all of your teeth, their type, and arrangement). The new tooth or teeth is based on this model. A replacement tooth, called a crown, is then attached to the abutment.

Instead of one or more individual crowns, some patients may have attachments placed on the implant that retain and support a removable denture. Your dentist also will match the color of the new teeth to your natural teeth. Because the implant is secured within the jawbone, the replacement teeth look, feel, and function just like your own natural teeth.

Can Anyone Get Dental Implants?
In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for a dental implant. Patients should have healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant. They also must be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Heavy smokers, people suffering from uncontrolled chronic disorders, such as diabetes; heart disease; or patients who have had radiation therapy to the head/neck area need to be evaluated on an individual basis. If you are considering implants, reserve an appointment today with Dr. Ben to see if they are right for you.

How Painful Are Dental Implants?
Most people who have received dental implants say that there is very little discomfort involved in the procedure. Local anesthesia can be used during the procedure, and most patients report that implants involve less pain than a tooth extraction.

After the dental implant, mild soreness can be treated with over-the-counter pain medications, such as Tylenol or Motrin.

What If I Don’t Get A Dental Implant When I Need It?
If you are certain you need a dental implant, putting it on hold may cost you thousands in the future, or even your smile in total. The longer you put it off, the worse the condition and cost get.

Whenever there is a gap in your smile, your teeth will naturally try to fit the gap on their own. Meaning your teeth will begin to shift in order to fit the hole. However, this means the teeth will begin to shift downwards and cause some teeth to become loose and fall. In addition to this, you might be susceptible to losing bone, a vital role in the dental implant cost. The more bone you need, the more the dental implant procedure will be.
