Implant dentistry continues to evolve and meet the changing needs of patients with new techniques for tooth replacement. From a single implant to permanently securing a hybrid denture, Dallas area dentist Dr. Bradley Dean has been a local leader in the implant dentistry and has implemented both advanced technology and techniques for patients with missing teeth. As a trained and experienced oral surgeon, Dr. Dean can help you achieve a functional new smile with optimal results.
One of the major factors affecting a patient’s candidacy for dental implants has always been the integrity of the jaw bone. Many patients have either been unable to consider an implant secured dental bridge or denture if their bone has been compromised, or too much recession has occurred or required to undergo bone or sinus grafting to accommodate and maintain dental implants.
Zygoma Implants: How Do They Work?
Advances in the science of implant dentistry now make it possible for Dr. Dean to place dental implants in patients with what would have previously been considered inadequate jaw bone. Zygoma dental implants can support a dental bridge or denture with less recovery time than traditional implants, using zygomatic bone when the jaw bone structure is not sufficient.
Zygoma implants use the cheek bone above the jaw, or maxilla, bone to anchor and support a dental bridge or denture almost immediately. Dr. Dean will analyze the condition of your jaw and overall dental health before recommending a treatment plan using zygomatic implants. He will take the time to discuss your health history, concerns and personal goals to be sure that your result is optimal and supports long term oral and overall health and well being.
Zygoma implants can enable edentulous patients with compromised jaw bone to enjoy the benefits that dental implants offer for long term oral health and quality of life.
Why Choose Dr. Dean?
Dental implants have quickly become a commonplace term and are offered by many dentists in the Dallas area- and all around the U.S. But few local dentists have the extensive, in-depth training and experience that Dr. Dean has for the placement of all types of dental implants and the treatment of periodontal concerns.

A board certified periodontist, he offers specialized care for patients with missing teeth. Our Plano dentist office has the technology needed for both thorough evaluation and detailed treatment planning. This is important for strategic placement of dental implants and the best possible result for patients. We also offer sedation for your complete comfort during your procedure.
