State-Of-The-Art Dental Implants in Inwood Village
When one or more natural teeth are lost, patients can find themselves struggling with reduced oral function, damaged health, and a reduced sense of self-confidence. Traditional reconstructive solutions may help provide temporary relief, but many find them uncomfortable and not lifelike enough. You deserve a lasting, proven tooth replacement that turns back the clock on your beautiful smile to what it once was, and that’s just what you’ll find here at Inwood Village Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry.
Dental implants are designed to replicate the entire structure of your natural tooth, which allows them to reinvigorate both your oral health and your aesthetic appearance. As an experienced implant dentist, Dr. Todd Brownlee can provide a comprehensive treatment plan, taking you from consultation to surgical placement to custom restorations in a comfortable, high-end fashion. If you’re ready to pursue the best of what contemporary dentistry has to offer, don’t hesitate – contact our Dallas, TX practice today to schedule your first appointment with our team.
The Dental Implant Process
After we’ve determined through an in-depth consultation that implants are the right choice for your smile, patients will need to undergo a surgical procedure that places their new implant(s) into the jawbone. Your bone tissue will then gradually bond with the placed implants, creating a secure and strong foundation that can support replacement teeth. Dr. Brownlee’s advanced training and expertise allows him to personally handle this procedure instead of having to involve an outside specialist like many other dentists in the area.
Dental Implant Restoration
Once the patient has fully healed from their surgical procedure, Dr. Brownlee will design a high-quality, customized restoration to fit over the implant(s), recompleting your smile in a strong and seamlessly beautiful fashion. Dental crowns are mounted over individual implants, while implant-retained prosthetics can be designed to restore multiple teeth at once – our approach will depend on your individual needs and preferences.
Alternative Implant Options
Not every patient is the right candidate for traditional dental implants, which is why Dr. Brownlee is happy to offer variant solutions that still provide many of the same revitalizing and cosmetically pleasing results. Mini implants are ideal for patients who don’t have an adequate amount of jawbone structure to support the successful placement of full implants. Because they are about half the size, mini implants can provide stability to custom full/partial dentures in a minimally invasive fashion. All-On-4 implants are also available for patients who have suffered significant tooth loss and are in need of comprehensive coverage. During your initial consultation, Dr. Brownlee can explain the benefits of the different options.
Dental implants may be a significant commitment, but Dallas patients will be able to enjoy the positive effects they create for many years to come. These include:
- Jawbone deterioration is a serious concern after natural teeth are lost. With new dental implants in place, patients can avoid this potential issue and keep their oral health strong and thriving.
- The stable support of dental implants means that patients won’t experience any loosening or “slippage” over time. You can feel fully confident in the results!
- There are no dietary or hygiene restrictions with dental implants. They can be treated just like natural teeth.
- Dental implants are truly built to last. In fact, many patients are able to enjoy them for the rest of their lives.
