If you have lost one or more teeth as the result of decay, injury, or necessary extraction, you are not alone. Many American adults lose teeth due to unforeseen circumstances or disease, but a hole in your smile doesn’t have to be permanent. At Antoon Family Dental in Plano, TX, Dr. Sam Antoon and his team offer a variety of restorative dentistry options that help patients just like you reclaim a complete set of teeth for both functional and aesthetic reasons. One of the most popular forms of tooth replacement today is implant dentistry.
Will Dental Implants Work for Me?
This is a common question from patients who have lost one or more teeth. While dentures, bridges, and partials offer multiple benefits in their own right, none of these provide the structural stability that dental implants can. When dental implants are used to replace missing teeth, the biocompatible post that is inserted into the jaw actually helps to stimulate bone growth and gum tissue health. This helps prevent the loss of even more teeth, and can dramatically impact the outer appearance of your face as well. A consultation with Dr. Antoon and his team will help determine which restorative procedure is an ideal fit for you.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
The dental implants process is relatively simple. First, after your full treatment plan has been developed and discussed in detail, one of our trusted oral surgeon partners will place a biocompatible post made of titanium into your jaw where your missing tooth once stood. This post will serve as the root of your new tooth. After a brief period of healing and osseointegration (the process by which your jaw bone fuses with the metal implant), Dr. Antoon will affix a customized crown to complete your restoration. The result is a beautiful, lifelike new tooth that is as sturdy as your natural dentition.
