Dental implants are an excellent replacement for missing teeth. Implants provide great stability and support for tooth replacement appliances. At Cornerstone Dental Associates in Crossroads, TX, we provide affordable and high-quality dental implants.
An implant is an artificial tooth root made using titanium. It is surgically placed into the jawbone and then replacement teeth are attached to it. Being fixed, dental implants are highly durable and last several years. However, in some cases, they may need tightening or replacement due to normal wear and tear.
Implants can be used with the following restorations to replace missing teeth:
- Partial Dentures
- Full Dentures
The procedure of installing dental implants requires several visits to our clinic in Crossroads, TX. We begin by taking impressions and digital X-Rays of your teeth and jaw to determine if you are an ideal candidate for implant surgery. In case you do not have enough bone structure to support an implant, we will perform bone grafting to add new bone and wait for a few months until the new bone has fused and developed before installing implants. During the implant surgery, the area is numbed, and implants are placed into the bone and are allowed some to integrate and heal before placing permanent artificial teeth over them. We will also give you care instructions once your treatment is complete. Good eating habits and oral hygiene coupled with regular dental visits will help you care for your new implant.
Find out if you are an ideal candidate for implant surgery by scheduling a consultation at Cornerstone Dental Associates. Call us on (940) 365-7665. We are located at 12000 US Highway 380, Suite 114 Crossroads, TX 76227.
