Restore your smile and change your life with Dental Implants at Allen Dental Center.
In recent years, dental implants have become one of the most popular solutions for replacing lost teeth. Dental implants are lifelike and durable and with proper care, can least for the rest of a person’s life.
How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants work by replacing the missing root structure of teeth. To do this, a titanium post is embedded into the jawbone where it will become stable as bone begins to fuse to it. Once the stabilization process is complete, a restoration like a dental crown or bridge can be attached to complete the tooth replacement process. Titanium is used because it is a metal that is biocompatible with the body. Allowing for osseointegration, the process by which bone fuses to titanium elements, an implant can effectively replace missing root structure to support custom prosthetics.
Restorations and Dental Implants
The restorations that are attached to dental implants provide a biting surface for chewing food as well as serve as support structures for existing natural teeth. A single dental implant can hold a crown or a bridge. These restorations can be constructed from a few different types of materials including porcelain for a natural appearance and metal alloys like gold or silver for durability and affordability. If restorations become loose or broken, they can be replaced.
MINI Dental Implants
Those requiring multiple tooth replacement or those whose dentures fit poorly can benefit from MINI implants. These implants are smaller in diameter than the implants used for single tooth restoration. MINI implants are ideal for patients who have bone loss due to wearing dentures or having missing teeth because they can adequately support dentures and can be placed in a one-day, minimally invasive procedure.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants present unique benefits to patients suffering from tooth loss. The process of bone fusing to titanium (osseointegration) helps preserve bone tissue by preventing its deterioration, a problem that commonly affects those with tooth loss. Implants are so durable that once they are stable, they can completely restore oral function. Those who have dental implants can eat a balanced diet with comfort and confidence. Lastly, since the loss of a tooth’s root is addressed with implants, patients can enjoy a very low maintenance restoration. Implants are cleaned the same way that natural teeth are.

Implant supported dentures are a method of securing a full arch of prosthetic teeth to dental implants that are strategically placed throughout the jawbone. A conventional set of dentures relies on the curvature of the jawbone to stay in place. However, over time, conventional dentures can become ill fitting as bone begins to atrophy due to a lack of stimulation. When dentures are supported by dental implants, the bone will remain stimulated, thus preventing hard tissue deterioration. Implant supported dentures will not move during oral function because they are supported beneath the surface of the gums.
