Dental Implants for Patients in Fort Worth & Benbrook
Do you need to replace one or more teeth? At Summer Creek Dentistry, Dr. Jasmine Coleman King offers dental implants, one of today’s most versatile restorative dental services, to help patients in exactly that situation. With dental implants, we can help you improve how your smile looks by filling in one or more gaps, and we can improve how it functions. Implants are structured in a way similar to natural teeth, with the replacement tooth on top and an implant post underneath that acts like a prosthetic root. With both combined, you can look forward to results that look and feel natural.
Why are Tooth Roots Important?
Your tooth roots have two important jobs. First and foremost, they anchor your teeth to your jaw and create a stable foundation for your smile. Secondly, and just as important, they stimulate the jawbone to produce new bone tissue. This is what keeps your jaw strong throughout your life. When you lose a tooth and its root, your jaw is compromised. Over time, it will lose bone, eventually putting other healthy teeth as risk of being lost. Dental implants can help you support your jaw’s health by replacing your missing roots as well as your missing teeth.
Versatile Dental Implants
Few restorative services have the versatility that implants do. In addition to using an implant to replace a single tooth, you can also use them to replace multiple teeth, or even a full row of teeth. As a result, more patients can receive help with dental implants. The only requirement is that your jaw be strong enough to support the placement of one or more implant posts. We can help you decide if implants are right for you during a consultation appointment.
Dental Implant Process
Treatment with dental implants is completed in two stages. In the first, one or more implant posts are surgically placed in your jaw. Then, after a healing period, you’ll be ready for the restoration phase. At this point, your new crown, bridge, partial, or full denture will be attached to your implants, completing your procedure and giving you long-lasting results that look and feel natural.
