If you have missing or damaged teeth, getting one or a series of dental implants can be instrumental in restoring your smile and your confidence. To give you a long-lasting solution to replacing teeth, Hooman Lohrasbi, DDS, offers dental implants at Parkway Dental Care & Orthodontics in Garland, Texas. He also offers all-on-4 dental implants, which allow you to replace your whole smile with just four anchors. If you’re missing a tooth or set of teeth, don’t wait to call the office or schedule your consultation online today.
Dental implants afford you a way to replace a missing tooth with a new tooth that looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth. This convenience is possible because dental implants are rooted into your jaw just like the rest of your teeth.
This type of replacement tooth is longer-lasting than other tooth replacement options, and with proper care, your dental implant can last a lifetime. In addition to standalone tooth implants, the Parkway Dental Care & Orthodontics team offers all-on-4 dental implants, which allow you to replace your entire smile with only four implanted posts.
A dental implant requires a minor procedure, during which your dentist places a metal post in your jawbone. This dental implant serves as the root for your replacement teeth.
After the implant is placed, you enter a waiting period. This time allows your jawbone to heal and osseointegrate to the post, meaning it fuses with your jawbone. Once this healing process is complete, you have an extremely stable root for your replacement tooth.
Then, the team places your crown — a replacement tooth that's shaped and colored to look just like your natural tooth — on your dental implant.
If you're missing more than one tooth, implant-supported bridges or all-on-4 dental implants can help. These options allow the team to mount multiple teeth to fewer dental implants. Your orthodontist will explain your options so that you can make the right choice for your smile goals.
If you're interested in a dental implant, your orthodontist assesses your gum health and measures the density of your jawbone to confirm that it can safely support the dental implant. If your jawbone is not stable, bone grafting can help.
You'll be able to find out the necessary steps for your unique situation at your dental appointment. To set up your consultation, call Parkway Dental Care & Orthodontics or book your appointment online today.
