Although several tooth replacement options are available today for patients with one or more gaps in their smiles, dental implants are the clear frontrunner. They benefit your oral health, blend in beautifully with your natural appearance, and can last for the rest of the patient’s life – what’s not to like? Here in Plano, patients can look forward to a convenient and comprehensive approach at our office. Dr. Dr. Shaik both places and restores implants instead of sending patients to a separate specialist, saving valuable time.
Whether it’s just one tooth or several, losing parts of your confident smile can be devastating, not only for your appearance but for your oral health and function as well. That’s why replacing them as soon as possible is so important, and Dr. Shaik wants to help here at Shine & Sparkle Dentistry of Plano . Dental implants are the newest reconstructive solution in the field today, and they’re leaps and bounds ahead of the rest because of their incredible longevity, valuable health benefits, and lifelike quality. Contact our Plano location today if you’re interested in scheduling a consultation, or if you have any questions.
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants are highly successful because they replace every part of the natural tooth – both the crown (the white portion that makes up your smile) and the root that’s fully hidden beneath the gum line. Without a tooth root in place to stabilize the jawbone, this all-too important area can begin to deteriorate. The implant itself takes its place, creating a sturdy and healthy foundation for restorations.
Once we’ve determined that you’re a good candidate for dental implants, the first step of treatment is to surgically insert them into the jawbone. Shine & Sparkle Dentistry of Plano will bring a specialist into the office to handle this portion of the procedure, which saves the patient valuable traveling time and allows them to stay in a comfortable environment they already know and trust. Once the implants are securely in place, they will start to form a gradual and durable bond with your natural tissue and bone. This process takes place over multiple months, typically.
