At Sandy Lake Dental & Orthodontics, we offer complete implant care. Dental implants are an excellent alternative to traditional crowns, bridges, and dentures because they mimic the tooth-root structure of natural teeth, creating results that look, feel, and function like the real thing.
A full implant procedure is typically completed in two phases, both of which we can do at our Coppell office. In the first phase, a board certified periodontal specialist will place one or more implants into your jaw. To do this, they will make a small incision in your gums and gradually screw the small implant post into place. Then, over time, the bone tissue from your jaw will grow around your implant(s), which will create a secure base for your new tooth (or teeth). This process is called osseointegration, and it’s one of the reasons implants are so special. This bonding enables the implants to support your jaw just like your natural teeth, and can restore both your appearance and oral health. The implants also help restore blood flow to the area, helping it become more stable for the long term.
The entire procedure can usually be completed with only local anesthetic, and most of the time, any residual pain or soreness can easily be managed with over-the-counter medicine.
Once the implant site has healed, one of our dentists will attach your new custom-made crown, bridge, or denture to complete the second phase of treatment.
In addition to restoring your smile, implants will promote healthy bone growth. They can also last a lifetime. Whether you’re missing a single tooth or you need to replace a full upper or lower arch, our doctors can provide you with the implant care you need to renew your smile and your oral health.
