Why Dental Implants ?

Dental implants have become the preferred method of tooth replacement for several important reasons:
  • Dental implants have by far the best long-term success rates of any treatment option – and this has been documented in the scientific literature for over four decades.
  • Since dental implants are designed to last a lifetime, there is rarely a need for additional treatment. With other forms of tooth replacement that need to be replaced every 5 to 10 years, additional dentistry is almost always necessary in the future. As a result, dental implant treatment is the most cost-effective option long-term.
  • No other treatment option prevents the bone resorption/deterioration that occurs when a tooth is lost or removed.
  • This is the only tooth replacement option that preserves the adjacent teeth, as opposed to cutting them down to place a bridge or hooking a partial denture to them.

Replacing Multiple teeth

Versatility of Dental implants allows their use in replacing a single toothmultiple teeth or all of the teeth.  The Dallas Fort Worth metroplex patients may require additional procedures to obtain the optimal esthetic and functional outcome which we also provide at Dental Place of Plano.
A surgical and prosthetic evaluation and consultation with Dr Daniel Juma or Dr Jeffrey He will determine whether you are a candidate for dental implant treatment and whether additional procedures, such as bone grafting will be necessary.

Benefits of Dental Implants?

There are several treatment options for replacing missing teeth, however dental implants present numerous unique benefits for patients:

Designed to Last a Lifetime

Because dental implants are designed to last a lifetime, they have a better long-term success rate than any other tooth replacement option.  Documented clinical research demonstrates that dental implants have a success rate of over 95%, which is significantly higher that tooth-supported bridges and partial or full dentures.

Preserves Bone and Facial Structures

Bone resorption, or deterioration, is one of the most serious consequences of missing teeth.  By replacing the root of your tooth with a dental implant, your jawbone and smile retain their shape. If you are missing all of your teeth, replacing them with implant-supported replacement teeth will preserve the integrity of your facial structures and prevent the shrinkage of your jaws and the appearance of a collapsed face.

A Healthier Smile

Tooth-supported clasps for partial dentures can damage your teeth over time and tooth supported bridges are more susceptible to recurrent dental caries.  With dental implants, it is not necessary to cut down the adjacent  teeth in order to place a bridge, which compromises the long-term health of the teeth, or hook a partial denture onto natural teeth, which can cause them to loosen to the point where they have to be removed.

Natural Appearance

Dental implants were developed to replicate the appearance of your natural teeth and preserve your bone to maintain the natural appearance of your smile.  Our doctors at Penn Dental and Implant Center will be able to place the dental implants in the precise position to enable  the creation of a beautiful crown that matches the shape and shade of your natural teeth.

Hygienic and easy maintenance

Caring for a single dental implant is basically the same as caring for a natural tooth.  You’ll be able to brush and floss your implant-supported tooth.  Your hygienist will clean your new implant crown during your regular hygiene maintenance appointment.
Ultimately, dental implants will function the same way as your natural teeth, allowing you to smile with confidence and enjoy any type of food.
