What you need to know about dental implants in Garland, TX

Dental Implants from dentist in Garland Dentists in this country have been using dental implants since the early 1980s. Yet Dr. Sakunthala Boppana finds that her patients in Garland, TX often have questions. This information will help you understand why dental implants have become the preferred tooth replacement choice.

What is a tooth implant?

A natural tooth has roots that extend into jawbone, anchoring it securely. A dental implant is a small post of strong material that replaces the root of a missing tooth. In a brief implantation surgery, the post is placed into jawbone. Over time, bone fuses with the implant creating a replacement tooth root. The implant is then finished with an abutment and porcelain crown to restore function and appearance.

Why are dental implants so popular?

  • An implant is the closest treatment available to the look, feel, and function of a healthy natural tooth.
  • No special care is needed. Just brush after eating, floss before bedtime, and visit Dr. Boppana for regular checkups.
  • Confidence! There is no worry of unexpected slipping or wobbling, as with a denture, or avoiding certain foods like you might have to do with a bridge. With an implant-restored tooth you can smile, laugh, speak, sing, eat, and kiss with gusto!
  • Dental implants help the face retain a youthful look, with vital stimulation that keeps bone strong and facial features from “caving.”

What about dental implant cost?

Dental implants cost a little more initially than a denture or bridge, but they are built to last! With good oral hygiene, an implant may never need to be replaced. Since implants place no excess stress on other teeth, they avoid need for more dental work in the future.

Do dental implants have other uses?

One missing tooth may be replaced with this technique, several teeth, or an entire arch. Two dental implants can secure a bridge with up to three artificial teeth. As few as four dental implants may be placed to support a full denture for an incredible level of stability.
