Plano, TexasDental Implants
Because the quality of adjacent teeth isn’t sacrificed with dental implants, more of your natural tooth structure remains untouched, which benefits overall oral health. In addition, dental implants look and feel like real teeth. They also deter bone loss. The success rate for implants are as high as 98%.
Dental Implant Options
Using advanced implant technology, Dr. Ragnell can:
- Replace a missing tooth with one implant topped with an implant crown
- Insert as few as five implants to replace several missing teeth and support up to a dozen or more replacement teeth
- Support bridges that replace all of your teeth (implant-retained dentures)
- Raise the sinus floor and augment with bone grafting to increase jawbone mass and prepare mouths to receive implants
- Eliminate deformities in the upper and lower jaw that deter implant placement
Dentures secured with dental implants provide innumerable benefits. You won’t need adhesive to keep your teeth in place, and you’ll never experience slippage. Eat what you want, laugh out loud, and smile with confidence – your smile will remain strong and secure. Dental implants stop the jawbone atrophy that occurs when teeth are missing to maintain a healthy jaw that provides structure for facial skin and muscles, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
The Implant Process
Dr. Ragnell will assess your oral health and examine your mouth to assess your candidacy for implants. If dental implants are right for you, the doctor will perform any necessary grafting or augmentation procedures, then surgically place your dental implants in the sockets left by missing teeth. He utilizes leading-edge i-CAT cone beam scanning technology and surgical guide fabrication to ensure precise placement. After your jawbone fuses with the posts, Dr. Ragnell will affix your custom replacement teeth to beautifully renew your smile.
