Fort Worth Dental Implants

Strong Smiles for Life

Your teeth play an important role, not just in helping you speak and eat, but in supporting the bone structure of your jaw and face. So while tooth loss can happen, whether from injury or dental extraction, it always requires prompt dental care.

At Smile Fort Worth, we offer your tooth loss solution: dental implants. They are a safe, permanent solution for restoring your smile’s beauty and function. Whether you are missing one tooth or several, we can place dental implants and custom crowns or bridges to fill the gap in your smile.

What are Dental implants?

Dental implants are small screw-like devices made from titanium or a titanium alloy. Implants are placed securely in the jaw, in the gap left behind by a missing tooth root. Once placed, a unique process called osseointegration happens. This is when the bone tissue around the implant grows around the implant, essentially replacing and restoring the lost tooth root. You cannot see a dental implant once placed. However, they are designed to support dental crowns or bridges in order to fill the gap the natural tooth crown left behind. Implant-supported restorations are the only tooth replacement option that restores the entire tooth from root to crown.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants offer incredible restorative benefits. We recommend them in most cases when tooth loss occurs. Here are some reasons why you should consider a dental implant for both your smile aesthetics and long-term oral health:

Implants Offer Stability.

When you lose a tooth, the surrounding teeth are more prone to shift or turn. Since implants eliminate the gap in your smile, they prevent this misalignment from occurring.

Implant Treatment Works.

More than 95% of initial implant procedures are successful.

Implants Are Safe.

For over 35 years, dental professionals have been placing dental implants and studying their long-term benefits in patients. Thanks to titanium’s bio-friendly properties, it can easily and safely integrate with your natural bone tissue.

Implants Last a Lifetime.

With proper oral care, your implant can last forever. It becomes just as permanent (or even more so!) than your natural teeth.

Implants Stimulate Bone Repair.

Biology shows us that your jaw relies on the support it receives from tooth roots. When you lose a tooth, that area of the jaw bone loses strength. Implants, however, can correct this issue and stimulate bone growth and repair.

What Restorations Can I Receive With Dental Implants?

Depending on how many teeth you have lost, dental implant treatment varies. Below are the different implant-supported options available:

To replace a single lost tooth (or for scattered tooth loss), we use implant-supported crowns. A porcelain crown, designed to seamlessly match your smile, is fixed to the dental implant at the gum line restoring natural-looking tooth function.

If you have two to three missing teeth in a row, we offer an implant-supported dental bridge. This restoration consists of an implant-supported dental crown connected to one or more artificial teeth.
If you have complete tooth loss in either your upper or lower jaw, or both, we offer implant-supported fixed or removable, “snap-in” dentures. A complete set of dentures can be supported with just four or six implants in each jaw.
