The best solution for a restored smile
Dental implants are regarded as the best option to replace missing teeth, over other conventional treatment options. With the advances in dentistry, individuals 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 the way you would with your natural teeth. Many patients say they can’t even tell a difference between an implant or their natural teeth when they go about their day!
A long-lasting smile
Unlike bridges that can last about ten years or so, dental implants can last a lifetime! 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, which means 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 disadvantage of dentures is that they can become loose over time, and can rub on the bone and deteriorate it even more. By contrast, since dental implants also replace the root of the tooth, they give the jaw bone the necessary stimulation to promote growth.
Dental implants keep surrounding teeth stable
A missing tooth can cause other teeth to start shifting — affecting your bite, chewing ability, and appearance. It is essential to replace your teeth because failing to do 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 you look older overall.
