What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a permanent replacement for a missing tooth. It looks like a small metal screw with ridges on the sides. When inserted, the implant provides the same function as the root of a natural tooth. Unlike a denture, which only sits on the gums, an implant is integrated into the jawline and cannot be removed (except by another surgical procedure). Dental implants have helped millions of patients regain confidence in their smiles.

Why You Should See a Specialist in Fort Worth
Installing dental implants requires the experience and skill of a specialist. For one, only a specialist will know if there is enough bone density present to support the implant. Your Fort Worth dental implant specialist can also evaluate if a patient’s immune system is strong enough for this procedure—the stronger the immune system is, the faster and more successful the healing process will be. The implant must also be embedded where there is maximum healthy bone tissue to ensure that it will stay firmly anchored.

- No one except you and your dentist will know that you have a tooth implant.
- You can smile wide and eat your food without a second thought.
- Your speech and pronunciation of words improves thanks to your permanent tooth replacement.
