Dental Implants in Fort Worth
Are you searching for a natural-looking solution to missing teeth? Fort Worth dental implants by Lake Country Dental could offer you that solution!
Years ago, removable dentures were regarded as the only answer to gaps in a person’s smile. But with the recent advances in modern dentistry and technology, our oral surgeons in Fort Worth can replace your missing teeth with dental implants, which will allow you to regain the youthful, healthy smile that you once possessed.
Through restorative dentistry and the use of dental implants, our doctors in Fort Worth can transform your mouth, helping you to achieve a more confident smile that functions flawlessly.
About Dental Implants
Dental implants are artificial roots made of titanium that are secured into your jawbone to offer a fixed, secure solution that functions better than removable dentures.
By implanting the “anchors” into your jaw, our doctors restore function to your smile and offer a more permanent solution to bridges. The titanium screws replace one or more missing teeth and are used in conjunction with replacement teeth.
Installing dental implants requires surgery, but at Lake Country Dental, we believe that the aesthetic and health benefits of the procedure are well worth the process.
What to Expect
The dental implants procedure is a three step process.
During the procedure, Dr. Snider inserts a titanium screw into the jawbone. He then welds the bone and implant together creating a secure, permanent bond. Usually, patients only need local anesthesia to keep them comfortable and free of pain during surgery. Dr. Snider give his patients a temporary appliance to wear while their jawbone and implant grow together.
Within the weeks and months following surgery, and the implants have become one with the bone, Dr. Snider attaches posts to each implant. The posts protrude through the surface of the gums. Once your mouth has had time to heal, our team attaches a custom crown, or fixed denture, to the dental implant, leaving your smile looking completely natural and beautiful.
Throughout this process, it is important to have realistic expectations when getting dental implants.
Although dental implants look natural and improve eating and speaking functions, they won’t behave like your natural teeth.
Preparing For the Procedure
Prior to surgery, our oral surgeons perform an extensive evaluation on prospective dental implant patients to ensure the surgical procedure will give them optimal results that last a life time. When preparing for the implantation procedure, our team educates the patient on what to expect before, during, and after surgery.
Making sure that our patients are fully aware of the detailed process is important to us. Because choosing to undergoing a surgical procedure of this magnitude is a big decision, our dental professionals do everything in their power to address patient concerns, answer questions, and offer compassionate support.
