Utilizing Dental Implants for Tooth Replacement in Collin County

Dentures and partial dentures—or just “partials”—were the only option for replacing missing teeth for some time. Thanks to the modern medical marvels known as dental implants, there’s an advanced alternative available for some patients. Dental implants can replace one or a few missing teeth by implanting an anchor into the jawbone, which provides a foundation for the artificial teeth.

Trust our experienced and award-winning dentist, Dr. Neal! Call (972) 200-0656 to book an appointment for a consultation for dental implants in Frisco.

Because of this strong, individual, and permanent anchor, dental implants look and function almost identically to natural teeth. This procedure requires a healthy jawbone to screw in the anchor, so not all patients are ideal candidates. Visit Robert A. Neal, DDS Family Dentistry to talk with Dr. Neal and find out if you might benefit from dental implants in Frisco.

What Is the Procedure for Dental Implants?

Once you and Dr. Neal decide implants are a good option for replacing your missing tooth or teeth, we’ll book an appointment for the procedure. Dental implants are surgically anchored to the jawbone, meaning that anesthesia is necessary. Dr. Neal will prepare your gums and place the anchor and may prescribe antibiotics to ensure you don’t develop any infections. Your bone will begin to grow around the screw, securing it snugly in place.

How Do I Care For My Dental Implants?

Patients must have a strong immune system and healthy bone density to qualify for dental implants so that the anchor will firmly adhere to the bone and the body can fight off any infections. Dental implants can have a fairly long lifespan, but you must be diligent about oral hygiene and at-home care.

The following practices will help insure that your implants remain functional and undamaged:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day and be sure to use a toothbrush with soft bristles
  • Floss on a regular basis
  • Use an interdental brush to help cover hard-to-reach areas
  • Use a dentist-recommended toothpaste
  • Avoid eating hard foods that could potentially damage your implants

Dental implants are not living tissue, and their introduction into your body has the potential to leave the gum tissue at greater risk for periodontal disease. Pay close attention to any changes or issues around the area, and be sure to visit Dr. Neal and our skilled dental team regularly after the procedure.
