We will discuss your dental implant options and answer any questions you may have. Our financial coordinators will also prepare a treatment plan for you. Planning ahead for next year will not only make scheduling your longer appointments easier but also make your financial planning easier.
You Have Options with ARCHPOINT
Have you been told you were not a candidate for dental implants in the past? Advances in technology now allow more treatment choices for permanent tooth replacement. Today’s implant advances are easier and more predictable to restore your smile. By scheduling a dental implant consultation with ARCHPOINT specialists, you can learn how to successfully replace missing teeth with a permanent solution.
Single Tooth Dental Implants
ARCHPOINT is the implant expert in the Dallas and Fort Worth area. Permanently replacing a single tooth is more successful and predictable than ever before. Our titanium screw-like implant is surgically placed and then fuses into the bone. This serves as a strong anchor that holds your custom-made porcelain prosthetic crown. Single tooth implants preserve your bone tissue, prevent bone loss and provide incredible bite strength.
Implant Supported Bridges
While single tooth implants are a wonderful solution, when several teeth in a row are missing, an implant supported bridge may be a better option. Rather than installing one implant for each tooth that’s missing, implants are paired together a fixed multi-tooth dental bridge. This longer restoration can replace 3-4 teeth at a time, possibly more depending on the situation. Full-arch rehabilitation, however, is usually achieved through alternative treatments such as All-on-4 or All-on-6 therapy.
Dental implant supported bridges look similar to a traditional bridge. These permanent restorations eliminate the need for a removable partial denture and are capable of biting and chewing like a natural tooth.
Mini Dental Implants
A mini dental implant is a small-scale version of a conventional dental implant. It is about half the width and length of traditional implants, making them much smaller than natural tooth roots. Because they are so small, they require little bone support. This makes them ideal for those who want a stabilized overdenture but otherwise lack the bone support for full arch implants.
For Dallas and Fort Worth patients whose teeth have shifted after losing a tooth, you now have the option of mini dental implants. Due to their smaller size, they can easily fill a small space and provide support for a single tooth replacement.
Implant Supported Overdentures
If you are a current denture wearer, you may suffer from an ill-fitting “plate” that rubs your mouth. As bone and gingival tissue resorb, your denture will become loose and uncomfortable. You may experience rocking when biting or feel your denture slip when you speak. For these reasons, dental implant supported overdentures may be the perfect solution for you.
An overdenture looks like a full, removable denture with one major difference. The surface of the denture that normally rests against your gum tissue has built-in locators that “snap” or “clip” onto corresponding dental implants in your mouth. Two to four dental implants will anchor your overdenture into place. This gives you the strength and stability to enjoy foods that were restricted with traditional dentures.
Similar to traditional dentures, overdentures are easily removed allowing for easy cleaning, brushing, and during sleeping hours.
All-On-4 Dental Implant System
The All-On-4 dental implant system is a permanent alternative to removable or overdentures. Similar to overdentures, two to four dental implants are strategically placed into the jawbone. With All-On-4 implants, your dental prosthesis is shaped differently. There is no plate in the roof of your mouth, your prosthesis has the same “U” shape as your natural teeth improving your speech and giving you even stronger bite strength. An All-on-4 treatment is as close as you can get to having natural teeth all over again.
Another major difference from an overdenture, the All-On-4 treatment is a permanent appliance you never have to take it out. By permanently fixing your prosthesis to your implants, you will never have to worry about anyone seeing you without your teeth again. Our specialists can easily remove your prosthesis, however, for cleanings or adjustments.
For our patients who may need additional support, we can add two more implants and convert the treatment into an All-on-6 system.
Zygomatic Dental Implants
Not everyone is a candidate for traditional dental implant treatment. Especially those with severe bone loss, unable to support traditional implants. Zygomatic dental implants now provide an alternative treatment for those needing an entire upper arch of teeth replaced.
Slightly longer than traditional dental implants, this type of implant is placed at an angle into your zygomatic bone, also known as your cheekbone. Your zygomatic bone is unique because it does not resorb due to tooth loss like your jaw bone does. This allows the strength and mass required to successfully restore the entire arch of upper teeth.
