Do I Need Dental Implants?

If you have missing teeth, it is important to practice good oral hygiene and visit the dentist regularly to maintain your natural smile. Unfortunately, tooth loss can occur due to everyday wear and tear, accidents, illness, stress, aging, decay, or simply bad luck. Regardless of the cause, the solution to regaining a natural and healthy smile is through tooth implants. These implants are a reliable option for restoring your oral health and rejuvenating your smile if you have lost one or more teeth.

Dental implants are widely regarded as the best solution for tooth loss

  •  Prioritize Comfort: When replacing a lost tooth or teeth, it is crucial for the replacement to provide comfort in your mouth. Dental implants offer a pain-free and permanent solution, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods without irritating your gums or adjacent teeth once they are fully healed.
  • Convenient Maintenance: Unlike dentures or removable bridges, dental implants are permanent and do not slip. Taking care of them is as simple as maintaining your natural teeth, with regular brushing and flossing.
  • Enhance Oral Health: Bulky dental appliances can lead to bone loss, gum irritation, and an increased risk of periodontal disease and tooth decay. Dental implants seamlessly blend with your natural smile, safeguarding your jaw and gums.
  • Long-lasting Solution: Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime, making them the only tooth replacement option that can offer such durability.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Experience the benefits of modern tooth restoration like never before with dental implants. These titanium posts are surgically placed in your jawbone to serve as artificial "tooth roots" and securely hold your new tooth, bridge, or denture in place. Each implant is then fitted with a dental crown, restoring the natural look of the missing tooth and providing a functional chewing surface. At Gentle Touch Dentistry Richardson, our skilled dentists offer advanced same-day dental crown service, allowing you to have your crown created and installed in just one convenient visit to our office.

Single Dental Implant

If you have lost a tooth due to decay or trauma, a dental implant can restore your smile and boost your confidence. By replacing your natural tooth with a titanium implant and a realistic dental crown, you can regain the ability to smile, speak, and enjoy your favorite foods just like before. The dental implant will effectively replace the root and surface of your natural tooth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking result.

Implant Retained Dentures

In Richardson, TX, our dental patients can find relief from the discomfort and inconvenience of traditional dentures with implant retained dentures, also known as "overdentures." These dentures, secured with dental implants, can greatly enhance the quality of life for many individuals by addressing difficulties in essential daily activities like chewing and speaking. Our removable "snap-in" dentures offer a solution that improves the overall dental experience.

Fixed Implant Dentures

Our fixed implant dentures eliminate the need for daily removal of prosthetic teeth as they are securely attached to the implants. We collaborate with local specialists to ensure the highest quality care for this transformative choice.

What steps should I take to get ready for my dental implants treatment?

Dr. Chepyala may determine that certain preliminary procedures are necessary to prepare your mouth for dental implants after a consultation. Before receiving your dental implants, these procedures may be required:
