Dentures and Dental Implants

Your Guide to Implant Dentistry in Fort Worth Tx

Dental implants are bridges that are permanently anchored into the jaw. Because there is always a perfect fit, implants are almost the same as having your natural teeth back again. To qualify for implants, you’ll need healthy oral tissues and jawbone ridges that are in good shape. If you’re suffering from tooth loss, talk with Dr. Phillips about whether there is another option for you.

Usually Dr. Phillips feels you are a good candidate for implants if you have jawbone ridges that are in good shape and healthy oral tissues. When the device is inserted into the jaw, a chemical and mechanical bond is formed. The jawbone actually grows into the implant.

Thanks to advances in implant dentistry in Fort Worth, Dr. Phillips can give you a near perfect fit, and your new smile will look and feel as good as (or better than!) your original teeth.
