Dental Implants in Dallas & North Dallas, TX

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a natural-looking tooth replacement that functions just like the real thing. A post, usually made of titanium, is placed in the jawbone. After a specified healing time, a dental crown is placed on top of the implant to look just like a real tooth.

The Benefits of Dental Implants in Dallas

One of the best things about a dental implant is that they function just like a real tooth. You can floss around them and clean them. In fact, they are so close to a natural tooth, that most patients cannot tell the difference between their natural teeth and their implant.

Implant Placements

To place an implant, a small incision is made in the gum, and the dental implant is then placed in the bone. If there is not enough bone to support the implant, our dentists may recommend a bone graft to help support the implant.


Single-Tooth Implants

A single implant is placed in your bone and allowed to heal over the course of a few months. During this time, your natural bone fuses to the implant through a process called osseointegration. Once the bone is sufficiently bonded, a custom crown is placed over the implant giving you a new tooth.

Implant-Supported Bridges

Implant-supported bridges are very similar to traditional bridges. Instead of being supported by dental crowns over natural teeth, implant-supported bridges use implants. The number of implants used will depend on the size of the bridge.


Full-Arch Reconstructions

Do you have several missing teeth but want a stable option instead of dentures? Full-arch implants, also known as implant-supported dentures, might be right for you. Using a series of dental implants, we can secure a full arch restoration in place with no denture paste required!

Implant Prep

Before an implant can be placed, Dr. Ken or Dr. Powell will need to take some X-rays and a non-invasive digital scan. Then we can put the scan into our software and render a 3D model of your mouth so that we can see, in detail, exactly where the implant needs to be placed. We will also assess the health of your jawbone and perform any necessary preparatory surgeries to ensure your dental implants are successful.


Implant Maintenance

After the healing period is up, and your final restoration is in place, you can care for your implant just like a natural tooth. Brush and floss around it twice a day, and we will be sure to check your implant when you come in for regular cleanings at ConfiDent Smile Studio to make sure everything looks good.
