Are you missing one or more teeth? Do you wish to have a beautiful, fully functional smile once again? Ask our dentist about dental implants in Allen, Texas. Dental implants restore the tooth root as well as the tooth. Implants are made up of three parts: a titanium screw, a dental restoration, and an abutment. The titanium screw is placed in the jawbone, replacing the tooth root. The dental restoration, which is usually a dental crown, is attached to the screw by Dr. Dean Doles. The abutment connects the two pieces.

What are the advantages of dental implants?
Dental implants have many advantages. The titanium implant screw is designed to fuse with the jawbone, so dental implants become a permanent part of your smile. Dental implant placement doesn’t require the altering of healthy teeth.

How do I care for my dental implants?
Care for your dental implants the way you care for your teeth. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day. Also, it is important that you visit Dean Doles Family Dentistry at least every six months for a professional dental cleaning.

How long do dental implants last?
Implants are very durable. They can last for up to 25 years, or even longer with good care.
