Dental Implants
Dallas, TX

At Dallas Oral Surgery Associates we offer several implant-related treatments to replace one or more missing teeth. We specialize in implant treatment because we believe that dental implants are the ideal solution for tooth loss.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium screw that we surgically embed deep into the jawbone. Once the implant is in place, it will slowly fuse to your jaw through the process of osseointegration. After a brief healing period, the implant screw will be able to support a restoration against the strongest forces of your bite. Dental implants can be used to support a single crown, a partial bridge, and a full-arch restoration. Depending on the situation, a dental implant can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth. This makes implants a more convenient, durable, secure, and aesthetically pleasing option over traditional restorations. The numerous benefits of dental implants have made them the industry standard for tooth replacement! Read more about the benefits of dental implants and recovery from dental implant placement.

How Long Is the Recovery Process for Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth inserted into the jawbone and topped with a crown. If the crown is made of ceramic or porcelain, the final implant is often indistinguishable from other teeth. A dental implantation surgery plus recovery can take six to eight months. Factors including the number of teeth to be replaced and the extent of the damage make a difference. It increases the time it takes to do the surgery and the healing time required.

What Are the Risks Associated with Dental Implants

Dental implants are an effective and successful solution for missing or damaged teeth. While the dental implant procedure is safe and quick, it might not be the right solution for everyone. It is essential to understand the risks involved before you go in for the treatment. At Dallas Oral Surgery Associates, we conduct a thorough check to ensure you are the ideal candidate for dental implants or whether another procedure like bridges would work best for you. Dr. Wallace and Dr. Gannon will guide you through the process and inform you about the risks and alternative procedures so you can make the best possible decision.

All-on-4® Treatment Concept

We offer the All-on-4® treatment concept for patients missing all or most of their teeth. As the name suggests, this full-arch restoration only uses four implants to support the entire bridge. The posterior (back) implants are placed at an angle to utilize the strongest part of the jawbone. Other full-arch restorations usually require six to eight implants. Thanks to the revolutionary new technique, All-on-4® is much more effective and minimally-invasive than other options.

Implant-Supported Denture

An implant-supported denture is similar to All-on-4® but usually requires more implants. We may recommend an implant-supported denture if you want a better alternative to traditional dentures. A traditional denture is a removable appliance that rests on the gums. Because it is not secured by implants, many patients experience difficulty eating, discomfort, and even embarrassing slips.

Who Is a Candidate?

If you are in good oral and overall health, you should qualify for dental implant treatment. If you have experienced significant bone deterioration due to tooth loss, you may need a bone graft first. During your consultation, Dr. Wallace and Dr. Gannon will be able to determine if implants are right for you. This usually involves a series of diagnostic tests that may include digital x-rays and CBCT scans.

Am I Too Old for Dental Implants

This is a common dental implant FAQ. Luckily, when considering who is a candidate for the placement of dental implants, age is not a determining factor. Some of the factors our dentist will check are whether you are in good health and the volume mass of the jawbone. If you have periodontal disease or severe gum recession you might not be a good candidate for the implants.

Dental Implant FAQ

We believe patient education is the cornerstone of good oral health. During your initial appointment, Dr. Wallace and Dr. Gannon will be happy to answer any questions you have regarding dental implants. This is also an excellent opportunity for you to voice any concerns. Staying informed can help you better maintain your restoration and prevent potential problems.

Dental Implant Materials

Over the decades, dental implants have been a fool-proof replacement method for missing teeth. They can last for over 15 years and closely resemble natural teeth. At Dallas Oral Surgery Associates, Dr. Wallace and Dr. Gannon recommend getting a dental implant over other tooth replacement procedures as it is more reliable and stable.

Ridge Augmentation

Many patients need a bone graft, or ridge augmentation before implantation is possible. Osseointegration, the process responsible for the many benefits of dental implants, requires an adequate amount of bone in the jaw. If osseointegration does not occur, implant failure is virtually guaranteed. Fortunately, we offer ridge augmentation to improve the quantity and quality of deteriorated bone. In many ways, ride augmentation allows patients to receive dental implants when it would otherwise be impossible.
