The loss of even one tooth can seriously impact both the function of your bite and your confidence in your appearance. Adjacent teeth can be compromised by the gap left by a missing tooth, shifting position or becoming more vulnerable to chips and cracking.
For our patients in Frisco, TX, dental implants offer a permanent and proven solution to missing teeth. The implant process involves attaching a custom-made, artificial tooth to an anchor post surgically implanted in the jawbone. This post integrates into the bone, providing a firm anchor on which natural-looking, custom-made restorations can be placed.

The Dental Implants Process
Determining whether or not dental implants are appropriate for you is highly dependent upon your needs and the condition of your jawbone. Not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants because some people don’t have adequate bone structure to support the implants. However, bone grafting allows more patients to enjoy the convenience and strength of these dental restorations.
During your initial visit to our office, our implant dentist, Our Doctors, will evaluate your bone and gum health to determine whether you are good candidate for dental implants, including immediate dental implants. If dental implants are the right option for you, Our Doctors will walk you through every step of the dental implant process, from initial planning to the final, permanent restoration.
