Many people conjure dreadful images when thinking about having a missing tooth replaced. In the past, dentists could only rely on instruments such as scales, drills, and other devices that seemed fitter for the Middle Ages. However, dentistry has changed by leaps and bounds, introducing new technology, such as lasers, that makes everyone’s lives easier.
At Dallas Laser Dentistry, Drs. Mary Swift and Morgan Petty perform safe and effective teeth replacement surgery using the latest technology to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
At our practice, we strive for an outstanding patient experience. We aspire to give our patients the best care possible, including helping them understand their many options for replacing missing teeth.
When we cannot preserve natural teeth through precise, painless, and surgery-free root canal therapy, once we’ve identified an issue, we take action promptly to ensure a beautiful smile, proper functioning, and overall wellness.
What Sets Dental Implants Apart from Other Tooth Restorations
The implant, a cylindrical post made from biocompatible materials such as titanium or zirconia, is positioned precisely in the jawbone and designed to integrate with the surrounding tissue. As it fuses with the bone, it becomes a part of the jaw and acts like a natural tooth root to stabilize the prosthetic tooth.
Patients concerned about ill-fitting or loose dentures should consider implant-supported dentures or overdentures. These devices eliminate the hassle of dentures that slip around and interfere with chewing and speech, causing discomfort and sores. Implants securely hold the prosthetic teeth in place without special adhesives or adjustments.
Overdentures offer an advantage by eliminating the need for periodic adjustments. Conventional dentures, not rooted in the jaw, do not offer stimulation to the supportive bone. Just like muscles can weaken if not used, the jawbone can atrophy or shrink with disuse. Patients may find that their regular dentures no longer fit properly as this process happens. The denture must be adjusted or replaced to attain the proper fit for comfort and function.
Implant dentures provide excellent value, as they can last a lifetime with proper oral care at home and professional care at our Dallas office. These implants stimulate the jawbone, keeping it strong, and don’t need to be adjusted or replaced. So, if you’re looking for a long-term solution to your dental needs, implant dentures may be a great option.
Even those who have already experienced bone loss may still be able to benefit from modern implant designs, such as mini implants. These innovative implants can be used to replace a single tooth with a crown, several teeth with a bridge, or even an entire mouth of teeth with an overdenture.
