The best solution for a restored smile
Dental implants are considered to be the best option to replace missing teeth over other conventional treatment options. With the advancement in dentistry, those who couldn’t receive dental implants in the past can now reap the benefits as well!
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants feel and act just like your natural teeth
A big advantage of a dental implant is the ability to bite, eat, brush and floss just like you normally would with your natural teeth. Many patients say they can’t even tell a difference between an implant or their natural teeth when going about their day!
A long lasting smile
Unlike bridges that can last about ten years or so, dental implants can last a life time! The integration of the implant with your jaw bone makes it an even better option for replacing your teeth. Moreover, we also offer metal free dental implants in Dallas which are biocompatible, meaning your body won’t reject the implant.

Bone loss prevention
In the first year of having a missing tooth, you can lose up to 25% of bone and even more as time goes by without a replacement. This bone loss is due to the lack of stimulation in the jaw bone.
A con presented by dentures is that since dentures can become loose overtime, they can rub on the bone and deteriorate the bone even more. On the other hand, since dental implants also replace the root of the tooth, they give the jaw bone the needed stimulation to promote growth.
Dental implants keep surrounding teeth stable
Having a missing tooth can cause other teeth to start shifting – affecting your bite, chewing ability, and appearance. It is essential to replace your teeth as not doing so can make future treatments much more complicated and expensive.
Less risk of gum disease
Having gaps in your smile can make it more susceptible for bacteria to build up and cause gum disease.
Maintaining facial symmetry
The sagging of the face can be a side effect of not replacing missing teeth and bone loss. Some effects include, wrinkles around the mouth, thinning of the lips, a more pointed chin, and making the person look older overall.
