Dental Implants Dallas Texas
If you’re missing teeth or are suffering from the pain and inconvenience of ill-fitting dentures, or if you have postponed getting a bridge or tooth replacement, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Gary Alhadef, can improve your quality of life.
Whether a result of gum disease, decay, or trauma, losing a tooth is a serious event that must be corrected. A missing tooth can inhibit the way you smile, speak, and eat, and it can lead to many other dental and overall health problems.
The most fundamental part of a healthy smile is good tooth-root structure. The roots of your teeth prevent teeth from shifting, maintain bone density, and provide the foundation for your smile. As the prosthetic that most closely mimics nature’s design, these devices serve as substitute tooth roots. Each implant is strategically placed in the jaw, where bone integrates with it to create a solid foundation and an excellent anchor for a crown, bridge, or denture. With proper care, they can last a lifetime.
These come in several different forms. The first type is called a root form dental implant. This looks like a screw and is placed directly into the bone where the tooth root once was. The second type is called a plate dental implant. A plate dental implant is usually used when the jawbone has deteriorated and is too narrow or thin for a root form implant.
In certain cases the jawbone has deteriorated so much that a section of it must be enhanced with an artificial, custom-made jawbone. This is called a subperiosteal dental implant. Patients rarely need this type of dental implant and are typically fine candidates for root form or plate dental implants.
Unlike dentures, these implants are not removable. Replacement teeth and crowns are made to perfectly match the rest of your natural teeth, and they perform just like any of your natural teeth. Dallas cosmetic dentist, Dr. Gary Alhadef, trusts Nobel Biocare implants, world-renowned for their esthetic excellence and maximum stability even in compromised bone situations. In finishing your beautiful restoration, Dr. Alhadef custom mills E-Max crowns chair-side using the CEREC system. These all-ceramic crowns are appealingly delicate in appearance but strong and durable. They are considered the best match with natural teeth.
