The Ultimate Dental Implant Solutions in Mansfield, TX
If you are looking for a solution to replace a missing tooth or group of teeth, dental implants are the most effective method available. Compared to dentures & bridges, dental implants provide greater protection to your bone & surrounding teeth. Dental implants also offer improved stability & a more comfortable feel, so that you can eat & talk just as you did before. Though all of the restorations we use are high quality & realistic, clients say that implants feel the most like real teeth.
At Creekside Family Dental, we specialize in dental implants, & with their help, we can give you a wonderful new smile. We are able to do all types of implant cases including: All-on-4, All-on-6, implant-retained dentures & implant-supported dentures. We can even immediately place an implant after extracting a tooth. This means that you can walk out of our office with your new smile after just one visit.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are surgical components that are attached to your bone as a way to replace the root of a tooth, & they naturally fuse with your bone over time. Essentially, they are titanium rods or screws that are inserted into your bone, & their titanium composition allows them to interact naturally & fuse with the bone like a real tooth would. We call this process osseointegration. Because they are attached to your bone in the same way as the original tooth’s root, they help keep your bone & surrounding teeth in place & prevent deterioration or slippage.
What many people don’t realize is that your jaw bone must be constantly stimulated every day to preserve bone health & density. With natural teeth, the act of eating is more than enough stimulation, but if you are wearing dentures, you won’t be stimulating your bone, & that leads to gradual deterioration & receding of your jaw. Implants work just like natural teeth & will provide healthy stimulation.
On top of the implant, you can attach fixed or removable false teeth. These teeth will be durable & naturally-colored to match your other teeth & will be molded so that they aid in chewing the way a natural tooth would.
If you choose to use dentures, you can attach structures to your implants that will securely hold your dentures in place. We call this an implant-supported or implant-retained denture. Compared to dentures that aren’t supported by dental implants, these dentures will be more secure, allowing you to eat more naturally. They will also preserve the health of your bone because the implants will stimulate your jaw.
