Dental Implants – Keller, TX
We Can Replace Missing Teeth For Life
Whether you’ve got a single gap in your smile or are struggling with a severely incomplete arch, tooth loss is no laughing matter. Many patients find that even the simplest everyday pleasures, like enjoying a good steak or chatting with friends, can become troublesome and embarrassing. Thankfully, Just for Grins offers a state-of-the-art solution: dental implants.
What exactly are dental implants? They’re titanium posts that are designed to fit into the jawbone and replace the original tooth’s root. Essentially, they create a sturdy and healthy foundation for new replacement teeth that can last for decades! When compared to more traditional services like dentures and bridges, dental implant-retained teeth are more durable, more attractive, and virtually indistinguishable from your original smile. As a Fellow of the International Dental Implant Association, Dr. Jonathan Angwin has the advanced training and dedication needed to oversee your implant transformation and help you achieve a higher quality of life.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are unique because they replace your entire natural tooth – this includes both the crown (the white portion that shows when you smile) and the root that’s well-hidden under the jawbone. With a new, functioning root (or roots) in place, the jawbone is stabilized and kept healthy, preventing the noticeable deterioration that can occur over time in patients who wear traditional dentures.
Dental implants are also very durable and allow for a full range of function – you can eat all your favorite foods again! Their aesthetic value is virtually identical to the original tooth/teeth, and their longevity is truly exceptional. Many patients are able to enjoy their new, implant-retained teeth for the rest of their lives.
Indications of Dental Implants
Dental implants are highly versatile and can be used to address a wide range of tooth loss, from individual teeth to entire arches and everything else in-between. Our team will work closely with patients to help them pair their new implant(s) with the ideal restoration.
Missing One Tooth
All-porcelain dental crowns are the best way to replenish single missing teeth. They won’t harm your surrounding natural smile as a traditional bridge would, and their appearance will blend right in beautifully. It will be like you never lost the original tooth at all!
Missing Multiple Teeth
Implant-retained bridges can recreate consecutive lost teeth with one sturdy prosthetic. While traditional bridges required dental crowns to attach to natural teeth (and minimize their natural structure in the process), this modern alternative relies on two dental implants instead for optimal security and permanence.
Missing All Teeth
If you’re in need of a brand-new smile, an implant-retained denture can work wonders! This style of prosthetic is more cost-effective because it relies on a small number of implants for total support (instead of requiring one new implant per missing tooth). Depending on the patient’s needs and preferences, we can permanently fix the new denture in place or make it removable.
Cost of Dental Implants
Determining the cost of a dental implant treatment can be tricky at first – every patient’s needs are different! Plus, there are multiple components to the procedure, including the initial insertion of the implants themselves, the creation of the custom-made restorations, and more. We encourage those interested to stop by our practice for a one-on-one consultation first. Dr. Jonathan can assess your oral health and provide a confident price estimate before any actual treatment begins. While dental implants may be initially more expensive than traditional reconstructive care, we strongly believe that it’s an investment worth making. Implant-retained teeth can thrive for decades and shouldn’t require the same level of maintenance over time, which makes them ultimately more cost-effective.
