Dental Implants in Fort Worth, TX

Dental Implant Restorations

You need missing teeth replaced, but you want your new smile to look and feel natural. If you're looking for a way to permanently replenish your bite, Fort Worth dentist Dr. Kelly Blair wants you to schedule a consultation to discuss dental implants. Dental implants offer a long lasting, reliable, and natural-looking option.

Dental Implant Placement

As your dental implant dentist, Dr. Blair or a trusted oral surgeon will secure small, biocompatible dental implant posts in one or more sockets left empty by missing teeth. The posts replace teeth roots in order to hold replacement teeth securely in place. One dental implant post can replace a single tooth, or a few can secure a denture. Because of the root-and-crown structure of dental implants, they offer the most natural solution to missing teeth.

Because dental implant posts are made with biocompatible metal, bone tissue naturally integrates with them over time. During the healing phase, you might wear a temporary denture or dental crown.

Dental Implant Restoration

After your mouth heals, Dr. Blair will design your dental crown or denture. She will then coordinate with our dental lab to create the completely custom prosthetic. You’ll return to our dental office in Fort Worth, TX for the final placement of your dental implant restoration or denture. Because of her experience and understanding of neuromuscular dentistry, Dr. Blair will make sure that your new teeth fit comfortably and function well; that way, you’ll experience no pain in your temporomandibular joints.

Implant-secured Dentures

Implant-secured dentures can improve the quality of life of people who just can’t seem to make dentures work. Whether the ridges of your gums have worn down, you’ve never had a good fit, or you simply don’t like the hassle of denture care, dental implants might be exactly the solution you’re looking for. In some cases, an existing denture can be retrofitted with snaps to attach to dental implant posts. However, a new denture is usually recommended to fit securely and snugly.

Dental Implants Improve Lives

With dental implants, patients experience a newfound freedom from denture care. They report feeling confident eating and speaking in public. In addition to improved oral function and self-confidence, dental implants stimulate the jawbone, which reduces the potential for bone degeneration. Patients who have lived with missing teeth notice a fuller, more youthful appearance because of the underlying support for lips and cheeks. You deserve to enjoy a beautiful, comfortable, and fully dependable set of teeth!
