Looking for a Tooth Replacement
After the healing process is over and the implant is securely bonded to the bone, a healing abutment is placed to allow optimal aesthetic healing. To make new teeth resembling your own, we will take an impression of your teeth and of your bite. The new replacement tooth will be crafted based on this model. The final replacement tooth, or crown, is then attached to an abutment. We will match the color of your replacement teeth to that of your existing teeth. With your new teeth attached to the jawbone, they will look, feel, and work like natural teeth.

What are Dental Implants?
Are you missing teeth or have teeth that are failing? Do you need a smile makeover? Dental implants might be the right option for you. To put it simply, dental implants are a replacement option for missing or failing teeth. The success rate for dental implants can be as high as 98%, and with proper upkeep, they can last a lifetime. Dental implants need to be treated like you should treat your real teeth. This includes regular brushing, rinsing, and flossing. Regular check-ups are also recommended.
Benefits of Dental Implants:
- They are long lasting
- They are durable
- They clean and floss like normal teeth
- They provide a natural look and feel
- Comfort while eating
- Improved speech
Dental Implant Process
To begin, you need to develop an individual treatment plan with us. North Texas Dental Surgery Wisdom Teeth and Implant Center in Plano, TX will find the best solution to your specific problem with your individual needs in mind. This plan is prepared by experts. Our team can surgically perform your procedure at the highest level of excellence and our specialists can make your individualized flawless tooth in office.
The next step is getting a tooth root implant. This procedure can be performed with local anesthetic or IV sedation. The implant will be surgically placed in the form of a post made of titanium that is screwed into the bone socket where the missing tooth was previously. While the jaw heals from the process, the bone grows around the post securing it in position. The healing process is expected to last up to 16 weeks.
