What Are Implants And Why Should I Consider Them?
Think of dental implants as artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. Dental implants are typically made of titanium-only metal that is extremely bio-compatible and has a proven track record for bonding with the jaw bone during healing, making it an ideal material for implant procedure. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns. The crown is attached to the implant either via cementing it in place or by a retainer screw. The crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth.
Dental implants usually an option for:
• Replacing a missing tooth – an implant and attached crown act and look just like a natural tooth.
• Replacing several missing teeth – an implant and bridge can replace missing teeth.
The benefits of dental implants:
• Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that preserves natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth.
• Improved function- everyday activities like chewing will become easy again.
• Improved appearance & comfort

Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
Single Tooth Replacement
A single tooth can be replaced by an individual implant topped by a carefully crafted artificial crown. Your replacement tooth will have the same biting and chewing power as a natural tooth. Dr. Jain will design your crown in such a way that it blends in with the rest of your teeth.
Multiple Tooth Replacement
For replacing several teeth in a row, Dr. Jain will either use individual implants topped by single replacement crowns, or an implant-supported bridge. An implant-supported bridge is a series of connected crowns that is supported by two or more implants. We will examine you and will recommend the option that best fits your specific needs.
Full Mouth Rejuvenation
When a patient is missing most of their teeth and looking for dentures as a replacement, implant supported dentures might be the best method of reconstruction. These implants help prevent bone loss and deterioration over time, due to the jaw bone having no remaining function. This is a full smile makeover that leaves our patients beaming with confidence.
Plano Dental Implant Process
Dr. Jain will create your unique treatment plan based on your needs. Together we will discuss your budget, the implant procedure, recovery and outcome expectations.
Implantation: The placement of the dental implant is a simple procedure performed in the dentist office under local anesthesia. It typically takes three to six months for the implant to heal and fully integrate with the jawbone. In some cases, a temporary crown will be placed while the implant heals. Other times, interim replacement options such as essix retainer will be discussed.
