Dental Implants in Grand Prairie
Restore the Form & Function of Your Smile
At Great Southwest Family Dental, we know that missing or broken teeth may be damaging to your self-esteem. Not only can it make you feel less confident, but it can make chewing food and simple speaking a burden. We recommend dental implants to replace missing posterior teeth or to anchor a full set of new teeth. Our dental implants are strong, durable, and are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium posts creating a secure foundation for replacement teeth.

What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are screws made of titanium and other bio-compatible materials and surgically placed in the jawbone. These screws become the foundation for a crown, bridge, or dentures. Our dental implants are an effective and safe way to replace missing or damaged teeth. Once placed, the dental implants are attached to a crown via an abutment that connects one to the other.
The Process of Receiving Dental Implants
Before our dentists ever give you an implant, they will take full X-rays and molds or impressions of your teeth and jawline. This is crucial to figure out the exact spacing that is open for an implant, and also shows the current health of your bone and gum tissue. On the day of the procedure, the dentist will completely numb your gums and mouth to eliminate any pain, and carefully place the implant in the space. Over the next six months, the implant will gradually heal and completely fuse itself into position. Meanwhile, in the upcoming weeks, the artificial tooth is securely fitted over the implant, providing perfect stability and comfort.
Why Should I Replace Missing or Broken Teeth?
Dental implants are a permanent and aesthetic solution and function just like your natural teeth.
You may want to look into dental implants if the following applies to you:
- You avoid smiling because you don’t want anyone to see the condition of your teeth
- You have a difficult time chewing food and can no longer enjoy eating the foods you love
- Your teeth are cracked or decayed to the point where they can’t be restored
- Your dentures are uncomfortable and make eating difficult
- You are embarrassed about having dentures
Our dental implants look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. Contact your office today to schedule an appointment with our friendly team of professionals.
