Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone. The dental implants mimic a tooth root to create a solid basis for either a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture. To ensure you are an ideal candidate for dental implants, Dr. Grapevine will perform a comprehensive exam to determine if you have an adequate amount of healthy bone structure to support dental implants. If you are not the right candidate for dental implants, Dr. Grapevine does offer a range of replacement options to restore your natural smile.

The Procedure: Dental Implants

Receiving dental implants will require multiple visits to our Plano, TX dental office.  Dr. Grapevine will work with an experienced local surgeon who will perform the surgical procedure of the dental implant process. Dr. Grapevine will complete the restoration in his comfortable Plano dental office.

Once the dental implant is surgically attached to your jawbone, it usually takes about 3-6 months for the dental implants to integrate into the jawbone. Only the dental implants heal, Dr. Grapevine will attach either a dental bridge, dental crown, or denture as your secure restoration. Dental crowns are ideal for patients missing a single tooth. Dental crowns can be color matched and shaped to match your natural smile. A dental bridge is used to replace several consecutive missing teeth or to bridge a gap between teeth. A denture is used to replace full bottom or top arch of teeth.

Once your final restoration is installed, patients can expect to have a functional, natural looking smile. To ensure your dental implants last, Dr. Grapevine always recommends to visit his Plano, TX dental office twice a year for preventive care visits, as well as maintain a proper oral hygiene routine.
