Benefits of Dental Implants Plano, TX
Losing your teeth is a serious issue. No matter if you lose just one or you lose them all, your entire life is affected. Once simple tasks like eating and speaking become more challenging, your smile is significantly impacted. Adjacent healthy teeth begin to shift out of alignment as the jawbone loses bone mass. Replacing missing teeth is essential for restoring normal oral functions. McDonald & Luck DDS can replace your missing teeth with dental implants.
Dental implants are a modern treatment used to replace missing teeth. This treatment uses small titanium posts that are surgically placed into your jawbone to provide support for your replacement teeth. Your bone gradually fuses to the posts as you heal in a natural process called osseointegration. This process stabilizes the posts in your jaw, turning them into strong roots that can hold your replacement teeth securely in place, preventing them from shifting out of place or falling out completely.
Meeting Your Needs

How are Implants Placed?
Placing implants is more involved than traditional restorations and requires surgery. Surgery begins with small incisions in your gums. This gives us access to your jawbone. We drill holes into your bone and place the implant posts directly inside. Your gums are then sutured closed, and temporary teeth are placed.
After surgery, follow up visits allow us to monitor your healing, ensuring that your bone is fusing properly and that there are no issues. Healing can take several weeks to several months to complete. Once you have fully healed, we design and create your final dental restorations and secure your new teeth onto your implant posts.
