Tooth loss can be a devastating event, both for your oral health and your self-confidence. That’s why it’s imperative that treatment begin sooner rather than later. Dr. Michael Jones and his team will be happy to help you choose a tooth replacement solution that fits your unique needs. Dental implants are often considered an ideal option today because of their lifelike nature, their long lasting quality, and their rejuvenating benefits to your oral health. We create beautiful and durable restorations for your implant treatment, effectively completing your new look.
How do dental implants work?
Surprisingly, many patients aren’t aware that their natural teeth consist of two parts: the crown, which is the visible portion, and the root, which is hidden underneath the gums. While all tooth replacement treatment options replace the crown portion well enough, only dental implants replicate the root as well, and for good reason – without a new root in place, the jawbone can begin to deteriorate, leading to potential oral health problems in the future. When receiving a dental implant, you’ll first need to undergo a surgical procedure where a titanium implant (the new “root”) will be precisely placed in the open socket. Then, once an appropriate amount of time has passed for the area to heal, your new tooth will be completed with an all-ceramic, customized restoration.
Dr. Jones has strong relationships with several skilled dental specialists in the Dallas area, and he’ll be happy to recommend one of them to handle the surgical portion of your dental implant procedure. Then, you’ll return to our office so that we can create and place your new restoration, which we’ll painstakingly create to match your existing smile both in shape and color. The results will be so lifelike that you may eventually forget that it’s not a natural tooth!
