If you have missing teeth, or have teeth that are failing due to disease, trauma or genetic conditions, the impact on your day-to-day life can be drastic. Without healthy teeth, your ability to eat certain foods will diminish as will self-confidence in your smile and how you interact with others. And with your smile being one of the first things that people notice about you, having a healthy and complete set of teeth is something you should never take for granted. If you are seeking a tooth replacement solution to restore your smile, we offer the most modern approach—dental implants in Dallas, TX.
Dental implants are considered to be the gold standard solution for missing teeth due to the functional and aesthetic benefits they provide patients. Dental implants mimic a natural tooth’s function and appearance, allowing patients to smile with confidence, eat their favorite foods again and enjoy a healthy mouth for years to come. With proper care, the new teeth provided by dental implants can last a lifetime! Our oral surgeon, Dr. Howard Cooke, utilizes his unique education and experience to offer patients leading implant surgery. We always practice at the highest level possible, so you can expect a new smile that will make you proud to show it off.
A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth that is composed of three interconnected parts. The implant post is a biocompatible titanium “screw” that is placed below the gum line into your jawbone. This implant post acts just like a natural tooth root, fusing itself to the surrounding jawbone and providing a firm hold as well as stimulation to the bone for continued growth. The top of the dental implant is capped with a dental crown, a lifelike tooth replacement commonly composed of ceramic or porcelain materials. This crown is created by a trusted dental lab and affixed by your general dentist to give you a seamless smile and a natural bite again. Connecting the crown and implant post is a small abutment piece that sits just above the gums and underneath the crown. We can use dental implants to replace any number of teeth, even a full mouth of missing teeth! Once restored, dental implants are virtually identical and indistinguishable from natural teeth. You’ll be able to benefit from a variety of life-changing perks, including:
Dental Implants Case
I have had two implants placed by Dr. Cooke and I love the results. After wearing an uncomfortable partial, replacing it with implants was the best decision. I can finally smile and eat what I want to again. Dr. Cooke did an amazingly wonderful job! I could not be happier with his recommendation to place dental implants!
