Dental Implants the Most Natural Looking Tooth Replacement Option
If you have broken or missing teeth, dental implants are a permanent, natural looking solution. A dental implant is a titanium post that replaces the root of a missing tooth. The implant supports dental crowns, dental bridges or dentures. When placed and fitted properly, the crown, bridge or denture feels, looks and functions like your own natural teeth. Implant supported replacement teeth are the strongest, most lifelike and durable option available. Because the dental implant procedure doesn’t affect any of your healthy teeth, it is a conservative treatment option for replacing missing or broken-down teeth.
The entire implant procedure is performed right here in our McKinney dental office. Dr. Prida uses advanced technology to plan out the proper placement of your implants and how the replacement tooth or teeth will fit into your bite. You will receive precise, efficient and minimally invasive treatment.
Highly Skilled, Knowledgeable Implant Dentist
Dr. Prida, the McKinney Dentist, has many years of experience placing dental implants. He is a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Using the latest technology and receiving advanced training in several dental implant systems, it gives him the ability to offer the best treatment options to fit your case.
Our Dental Implant Services
- Dental implants for individual or several missing teeth
- Implant-supported bridges for multiple missing teeth
- Implant-supported dentures (fixed and removable) for a full arch of missing teeth
- Mini Dental Implants (MDIs) for denture stabilization
- All-on-4® new teeth in one day
- Bone grafting
Advanced technology and the latest implant procedures allow Dr. Prida to place dental implants and provide you with a fully-functional crown, multiple teeth or full arch of replacement teeth in one day, provided there is sufficient bone support. If the implant isn’t stable enough to handle chewing pressure, Dr. Prida will place a temporary cosmetic restoration (something used to restore or replace a tooth or teeth) that is lifelike and aesthetic.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants have advantages and benefits over other types of teeth replacement. The biggest advantage is the fact that an implant replaces a tooth root and can handle the same chewing pressure as a tooth root. Traditional dentures cannot handle normal chewing power and will prevent you from eating all of the foods you love.
An important benefit of dental implants is that they transfer the pressure from chewing into your jawbone, which in turn, promotes bone growth and preserves bone volume and density. Without this pressure, bone loss will occur.
Another huge advantage is the fact that you can have a tooth, or multiple teeth, replaced without affecting the adjacent, healthy teeth. There is no cutting-down of healthy teeth, as with a traditional crown or bridge. In this sense, Dr. Prida considers implants the most conservative treatment for tooth replacement. His approach is to keep all of your teeth as healthy and natural as possible.
Dental implants are durable and are long-lasting. Where traditional dental bridges and crowns can last several decades, dental implants and their restorations, when cared for properly, can last you a lifetime.
Next Dr. Prida will take a set of detailed impressions of your teeth for the lab to use in creating your final veneers. He will then and place temporary veneers for you to wear while your finals are being crafted. These temporaries will look very much like the final veneers the lab is crafting. During this time, any changes you’d like to make in the feel or look will occur. If there are changes, Dr. Prida will send them to our lab technician, who will adjust your permanent veneers accordingly.
Natural Looking - High Quality New Teeth
When your implant surgery is complete, you will be fitted with aesthetic, durable, temporary teeth. While the implant heals, your final teeth will be created in the lab that Dr. Prida selects because of their high credentials and expertise needed. This lab produces high-quality, durable and aesthetic teeth restorations that look natural.
Dr. Prida places the permanent teeth, making sure the fit, feel and functions are perfect. He checks the aesthetics of the teeth, ensuring the new teeth blend in with your natural teeth. He’ll also ensure your bite is perfect after incorporating the new teeth. When both you and Dr. Prida agree that the new restoration looks and feels completely natural, you’ll have a beautiful new smile with teeth that can last a lifetime. Schedule your appointment today.
