Top 4 Reasons to Choose Dental Implants

ImplantImproved Quality of Life.They will make your smile look like new again so you can feel confident in your ability to eat, laugh, and live without worrying about your dentures or missing teeth.
Ball Retained DentureSecure Comfort. Implants are surgically placed in the jaw bone where they integrate with the bone. You will never have to worry about messy denture pastes or creams again! Your implants won't move or slip so you can live a normal life!
DenturesPreserve Facial Shape and Jawbone Integrity. Bone loss in the jaw occurs almost immediately after loosing a tooth. Without the root to stimulate it, the jawbone will eventually dissolve to a point where the cheeks and lips are no longer supported. This can cause an aged, shrunken appearance. Implants preserve bone and help maintain facial integrity.
Man RelaxingHealthy Teeth Are Unaffected. Bridges require the grinding down of health adjacent teeth and can often be uncomfortable to wear. Implants will not affect healthy teeth and can actually help prevent further tooth loss due to jaw bone deterioration.

Missing Teeth in Coppell, TX

After a tooth extraction, you have several options for tooth replacement. You may choose from removable or permanent options, partial or full dentures, dental implants, or implant supported dentures, just to name a few. Each decision is based upon your lifestyle, preferences, and investment and is best made with the help of a professional who is experienced in tooth replacement. Dr. J. Darrell Steele recommends dental implants to replace teeth after a tooth extraction and performs dental cosmetic surgery for Coppell, TX.

Replacement after a Single Tooth Extraction with an Individual Dental Implant

When replacing a single tooth with a single dental implant, a titanium post is placed to replicate the lost tooth root. Implanted into the jaw bone, the post will integrate with the bone and provide a strong foundation for the connecting abutment and crown. The dental implant looks and feels similar to your own natural tooth and requires no special maintenance beyond daily oral care and regular dental cleanings.

Replacement of Multiple Tooth Extractions with a Bridge Supported by Dental Implants

While Dr. Steele could certainly replace your multiple missing teeth with individual dental implants, it is also possible to replace lost teeth with a dental bridge supported by implants. With this method, dental implants are strategically placed to serve as anchors for crowns at either side of the bridge. In a three unit bridge, for example, the implants would be placed at crown unit one and three, with the middle crown spanning the space of the missing middle tooth. This provides excellent stability for your bridge and prevents the need to grind down your natural teeth to accommodate the crowns, which is the traditional method of placing a permanent bridge.

It is important to note that when all teeth are lost, individual dental implants may be placed as a stand-alone replacement or may be utilized to anchor full dentures into place. If you have scheduled a tooth extraction, consider a consultation with Dr. Steele to discuss your permanent tooth replacement options.
