Dental implants for a stunning, functional smile

Healthy, natural teeth are held in place with tooth roots. Once the tooth is lost, the root is no longer present to hold new teeth in place. Traditional tooth replacement methods rely on other teeth or specialized dental products to hold the bridge or denture in place. Specifically, a dental bridge gets its support from neighboring teeth. These teeth are designed to “anchor” at least one prosthetic tooth. To ensure there is adequate support, these anchoring “abutment” teeth must be crowned. The natural teeth are reduced. So the crowns can fit properly on top to anchor teeth. The pontic and crowns are then placed and cemented to the “prepared” neighboring abutments. 

Dentures have conventionally been held in place with natural suction or denture adhesives. Due to anatomical differences, it is typically easier to secure the upper denture rather than the lower denture. The shape of the floor of the mouth can make it challenging to hold the base in place, which is why some patients use adhesives to prevent embarrassing or uncomfortable slippage and sores. 

Implants are designed to replicate what nature intended. By that, the crown, bridge, or denture is “rooted” in the jaw with implants. Each implant is made from a biocompatible material, such as titanium or ceramic zirconium, and shaped like a cylinder. Once placed in the jaw, the implant naturally joins the surrounding bone. When the new tooth is fixed on top of the implant, it is stabilized effectively in the jaw. The implant functions like a natural tooth root!

Due to this unique design that approximates natural tooth structure, dental implant-supported prosthetics are associated with: 

  • Superior aesthetics 
  • Natural “mouth feel” 
  • Optimal chewing efficiency and function
  • Hassle-free care
  • Utmost durability – can last a lifetime with proper care
  • Support the strength and health of the bone in the jaw

At other offices in Cypress, TX, and beyond, dentists may only be equipped to restore the implant with a crown, bridge, or denture. At Orion Dental Specialties, Drs. Farzam can surgically place the implant in the jaw and restore it. They also provide a variety of advanced services for individuals who might otherwise not be good candidates for implants, including bone grafting.

Dental Implants

Dental implants.

Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.
