What Are Dental Implants?

Replacing extracted or lost teeth are important to the general health and function of the mouth. The Dentist of Allen is incredibly excited to provide high-quality dental implants for tooth restoration. Implants serve as normal teeth in terms of capability and appearance and allow recipients to maintain a normal and healthy diet. An implant consists of a sturdy post that functions as an artificial tooth root, and a specially crafted crown, bridge, or full arch is used as the viewable part of the lost tooth (or teeth). Set up an appointment with our team in Allen, TX to find out more about our fixed implant solutions.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a great solution when methods like temporary dentures or bridges are not ideal. Implants provide a number of benefits, including:

  • Improved aesthetics: Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth.
  • Natural speech: Implants do not slip or move around in your mouth, making speaking much more comfortable.
  • Eat anything: Implants allow you to bite and chew most foods easily. There is no chance of your teeth slipping around or moving.
  • Improved oral health: Unlike a bridge, dental implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. This means that more of your natural teeth are left intact.
  • Long-term solution: Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care.

Implant-supported restorations are offered to replace any quantity of damaged teeth, from a single tooth to a whole mouthful. You may be considered an excellent candidate for implants if you suffer from the loss of teeth, need removals, or are dissatisfied with your current replacement. To function,dental implants need proper jawbone support, healthy gums, and a reliable oral environment, and some people could need other care before they qualify as good candidates. Implants might not be ideal if you are an expecting mother, smoke cigarettes, or have specific medical problems. During your session, our doctors can help you decide if implant-supported restorations are good for you.

What Can I Expect from Dental Implants?

Getting fixed implants involves careful placement of the post and the attachment of a lifelike replacement of the visible portion, including full-arch dentures, bridges, and crowns. Once your mouth is prepped, it will be dulled with anesthesia. We may also use sedation to help you feel more at ease throughout your operation. The metal post will be strategically secured within your jawbone in a specific area. When the surgical site has healed (usually several months later), we will install a specially made implant crown, denture, or full-arch piece and assess the alignment of your bite.

Patients may notice some swelling, bruising, and pain at the site of an implant. Prescribed or over-the-counter pain relievers and cold compresses can help ease some post-op aches or pains. Once the titanium implant has fused with the jaw and the visible part of the implant is in place, it's essential to follow good oral hygiene with proper brushing and flossing techniques. When recipients visit The Dentist of Allen for regular appointments, we use precise tools to disinfect their implants and check their condition.

About Us
How long will my dental implant(s) last?
With proper care and dental maintenance, such as brushing, flossing, and regular cleanings, dental implants can last the rest of your life. However, they are not guaranteed to endure that long. At The Dentist of Allen, we will provide you with guidelines on how you can best care for your implant(s) and will monitor the health of the implant going forward.
How long will the dental implant and restoration process take?
Unlike many other forms of dental work, like fillings, veneers, or teeth whitening, the dental implant process is an extended one that may vary in length from patient to patient. This is because your implant(s) must successfully fuse to the jawbone before you can get a permanent restoration, such as a crown or bridge. This fusing, known as osseointegration, commonly takes 3 – 9 months before a restoration can be installed.
What can I eat after my implant surgery?
For the first week or two following dental implant surgery, you will likely be asked by our Allen, TX team to stick to a soft food diet. Smoothies, protein shakes, and mashed potatoes are possible nutritious options you can consume during this time. In some cases, you may be able to have foods that don’t require much chewing, like noodles, after a few days as your post-surgical healing progresses. After a couple of weeks, you may be able to return to eating tougher, crunchier, or chewier foods, but you should remain cautious about overdoing it.
