We Walk Hand in Hand Towards Beautiful Smiles With Our Expert Family Dentists

Having missing teeth can be a pervasive problem for many individuals. However, at DePalma Family Dentistry in Denton, Texas, we offer dental implants that can replace missing teeth. Dental implants are a popular solution, proven to be successful for decades. If you have missing teeth and want to restore your oral health, function, and the aesthetics of your smile, look no further than the excellent dental implant procedure. At our dental office, we provide different types of implants, including single-tooth implants, implant bridges, and full arch implant restorations. Missing teeth is never a good feeling and can cause a lack of confidence due to a smile you are not happy with. If you are interested in dental implants, please schedule a consultation with our dentists, Dr. Tim DePalma and Dr. Marissa Garcia, to see what implants can do for you and your smile.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a type of dental treatment that involves the surgical insertion of an artificial tooth root. The implant is made of surgical-grade titanium, a biocompatible material that fuses with the bone over time. Dr. DePalma or Dr. Garcia will insert the implant. Then, the implant is left to heal and integrate with the bone (a process known as osseointegration) before crown, bridge, or denture placement. Implants are an excellent procedure that replaces one or more missing teeth or supports a denture. They provide a natural-looking and long-lasting solution for missing teeth.

Types of Dental Implant Procedures

At our office in Denton, we have more than just single-tooth dental implants. With implant bridges and restorations, you can restore your smile with the necessary procedure for your personal needs. Dr. DePalma and Dr. Garcia will work with you and help you make the right decision for you and your oral health goals.

Single-Tooth Implants

If you are missing one tooth, a single-tooth implant can replace that tooth. This type of implant comprises a surgical-grade titanium post, abutment, and custom-made crown. We will insert the implant into the bone, and once it has fused with the bone, an abutment is placed on top of the post, and a crown is attached to the abutment. Single-tooth implants look and function like natural teeth and can last a lifetime with proper care.

Implant Bridges

An implant bridge is a type of dental implant that replaces two or more teeth. Implant bridges use two or more implants that support the bridge. We will place the implants at either end of the gap, and a custom-made bridge is attached to the abutments. Implant bridges are a better option than traditional bridges because they don’t require the removal of healthy tooth structures for support. This type of implant is a good option if you have several teeth missing in a row.

Restorations

Implant restorations are prosthetic constructions placed on dental implants to replace missing teeth. They are custom-made and designed to look and function like natural teeth. Implant restorations may be fixed or removable, depending on the patient’s needs. Fixed restorations are attached to the implants and can only be removed by a dental professional. Implants support removable restorations that you can take out and clean daily.
