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, Dr. Bishop 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.

Took my kids here for the first time. The office staff was friendly and quick. Our wait time was little to none and they have late hours so the kids don’t miss school!

I love the thorough cleanings and professional care I receive here. I couldn't ask for a better dentist and am very glad my family chose to come here. I recommend this office 100% and some. See you in 6 months.

I have been going to David and Dr. Kim since 1986. He is the only dentist I will let touch my mouth. They are honest and they will always be up front with me. I really like the girls in the front office also. He hires the best!!! Their prices are the same as other dentists. The equipment is state of the art. I like the way they decrease the pain of any shots that has to be put in my mouth. Do you want to pay for dental work that will have to be redone in a few years? If you do, do not go to this office. They always use the best and the most cost effective treatment.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff, it’s an easy process from start to finish. The dental hygienists are awesome, and do a great job. I have seen both dentists there and I would recommend them both, Dr. Koelker and Dr. Kim. The front office staff does a lot to make sure I am able to schedule and change appointments if needed, and have even reached out after hours via text to double check my insurance several nights before my appointment, to see if I needed to switch to private pay to make sure I wasn’t potentially billed beyond my limits. That’s great service.

Yes I recommend The Dentist of Allen. Both my wife and I have been patients for close to 20 years. We both think Dr Kim is great, along with the rest of the staff.
