Dental Implants in Plano, TX

Dental implants are small titanium posts that Dr. Dean will surgically embed into your bone. It will take a few weeks for the post to fully heal and fuse with the bone. Once the dental implant has healed, a crown, bridge or denture will be attached for a natural-looking and highly functioning tooth replacement. Dental implants act as a replacement root for the missing tooth. Once healed, the titanium implant will be fused with the jawbone helping to support the foundation of your jaw and to protect the surrounding teeth from future damage. Periodontist Dr. Dean offers All On Fours, implant secured dentures, and implants for one or multiple teeth.

  • One Missing Tooth: One implant will be placed in the healthy root socket and then capped with a dental crown for a life-like tooth replacement for a single tooth.
  • Multiple Missing Teeth: if you are missing several teeth in a row, a bridge can be secured to your dental implant to replace multiple missing teeth. Depending on the number of missing teeth Dr. Dean may use one, or two dental implants to secure the bridge.
  • Implant-secured Denture: Dr. Dean can use dental implants to permanently secure dentures. You will no longer have to worry about your dentures slipping while eating or speaking.
  • All On Four Implants: Using four strategically placed implants, 2 on the top jaw, 2 on the bottom, Dr. Dean will be able to replace a full mouth of missing teeth. Custom fabricated dentures will be securely attached to the titanium posts.
