Losing a tooth doesn’t just affect your appearance – it can have negative consequences for the rest of your life, such as the sudden inability to chew properly or eat a complete diet. Without a tooth in place to stimulate your jaw tissue, the bone there will begin to deteriorate and grow thinner, causing your face to appear hunched and prematurely aged. Thankfully, Dr. Jason L. Montgomery is happy to share his passion for helping patients recover from tooth loss here in his Plano office. Our team can use dental implants to restore both your oral health and your self-confidence!
Dental implants have become the ideal solution for patients from Plano and beyond who have lost either a single tooth or multiple teeth. In fact, it’s become more popular than removable dentures or bridges! Dental implants completely replicate the exact structure of a natural tooth, including the root, which helps to keep your jawbone full and healthy. Unlike removable dentures, a dental implant allows you to eat, smile, and practice oral hygiene just like you did before. In fact, many patients forget after a while that they ever lost a tooth in the first place!
Dental implants are a seamless and strong answer to tooth loss because they simulate the look and feel of a natural tooth. You’ll begin treatment by having the implant itself (a small, titanium post) placed in the appropriate socket; this will serve as your new tooth root. Then, there is a period of healing where the implant naturally bonds with the jawbone and creates a sturdy, natural foundation. Most implants can even be cleaned with brushing and flossing just like natural teeth. Finally, once a bond has been created, you’ll return to our Plano dental office where Dr. Montgomery will place a beautiful, customized dental crown over the implant, completing your new look. Your smile will look complete and natural!
There are several factors that Dr. Montgomery relies on to determine whether a patient is an acceptable candidate for dental implant treatment. Contact our Plano office today to schedule an appointment where our team can review your oral health and determine your candidacy. We’ll be happy to help you find the tooth replacement solution that works best for your needs! We welcome smiles of all shapes and sizes from all over the Collin County area, including Frisco, Richardson, McKinney, Allen, and beyond.
