Benefits of Dental Implants
The reason dental implants stand above all other tooth replacements is that they accomplish something no other treatment can: restore both the root and crown of a tooth. Small titanium posts that act as tooth roots are placed into the jawbone, and these provide the foundation for the new teeth. Below are just a few reasons Dr. Shwarts recommends dental implants to almost every patient with gaps in their smile:
- Stability: Dental implants are held within the jawbone just like natural teeth, enabling a patient to eat whatever they like without worry that their prosthetic will shift or break.
- Lifelike Appearance: Unlike traditional bridges and dentures, implants don’t require acrylic or metal attachments to stay in place that stick out in the smile. Instead, they are topped with 100% custom-made porcelain restorations that resemble real teeth in every way.
- Ease of Maintenance: Taking care of dental implants is easy. Instead of having a prosthetic you need to take out and clean separately, regular brushing and flossing is all that’s required to keep implants looking and functioning like new.
- Unmatched Longevity: With standard oral hygiene, a dental implant can easily last for the rest of a patient’s life without needing replacement or serious repair.
Indications for Dental Implants
Patients with any number of missing teeth can benefit from dental implants, they just need stable oral health, decent overall health, and a strong enough jawbone to support the new roots. Once these requirements have been confirmed, Dr. Shwarts can use the following restorations to rebuild the smile:
Missing One Tooth
A single dental implant can be positioned between two teeth and topped with an all-porcelain dental crown. This is a more conservative approach compared to a regular bridge in which the nearby teeth have to be reshaped and cut down in order to make room for the prosthetic.
Missing Multiple Teeth
Instead of replacing multiple teeth with individual implants, a small number of roots can be attached to a bridge or partial denture. These implant-retained prosthetics not only look more natural than traditional removable ones, but they have a more secure hold as well.
Missing All Teeth
It just takes four to six well-placed implants to restore an entire row of teeth using an implant denture. These prosthetics tend to be smaller and leave more room in the mouth than regular removable dentures, but they are notably more stable, helping patients recover much more of their bite strength. This, in turn, allows them to enjoy a more varied and healthy diet, which can lead to improved overall health.
Partnered With Richardson’s Best Specialists
Placing dental implants into the jawbone requires a very minor but delicate surgery, and in order to guarantee that his patients receive the absolute highest-quality care, Dr. Shwarts is partnered with a network of Richardson’s finest oral surgeons and periodontists. After having the procedure completed by a specialist, a patient will be given time to heal, and then they’ll return to Dr. Shwarts to receive their new teeth. Thanks to this team approach, patients are able to renew their smiles in the most comfortable and efficient way possible.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Every dental implant treatment provided by Dr. Shwarts is completely personalized based on the needs of the patient, meaning the price always varies from person to person. To learn what your particular procedure will cost, we recommend scheduling a consultation. Even though implants do tend to be more expensive up front compared to other replacements, they are guaranteed to last many, many times longer, which helps patients save tremendously on periodic maintenance over time.
How Dental Implants Work
During a brief oral surgery, small incisions are made in your gumline to access your jawbone. The implants are then placed directly in the bone, and the gum tissue is closed. As your mouth heals, the biocompatible titanium posts fuse with the jawbone, so they feel just like the roots of the teeth you were born with. Once this process is complete, you’ll return to our office, where we can place your custom restoration to give you a flawless smile.
Advanced Dental Implant Procedures
Dental implants have an incredibly high success rate, but not everyone is automatically a good candidate for implant treatment. If you have been missing teeth for quite some time, it’s possible that your jawbone has gradually deteriorated. Insufficient jawbone depth is a common factor in implant failure. Thankfully, advanced dental implant procedures in Richardson can help rebuild your jawbone and pave the way to successfully restoring your smile with dental implants.
