Dental Implants are human-made replacements for the root of a tooth. If a patient has broken or missing teeth due to injury, periodontal disease, decay, or congenital defects, a dental implant can replace a single tooth, several teeth, or the entire upper or lower jawline.
The dental implant procedure is the placement of permanent, prosthetic teeth that look and function like the real thing. The implant procedure is designed to be painless and provide a smile that lasts a lifetime. When placed by an experienced team of dental implant professionals at Texas Dental Group, the procedure is one of the safest and most successful in dental and cosmetic practices.
WHY DO PEOPLE NEED DENTAL IMPLANTS?
2. To reinforce the structure of the jawbone: When a tooth is lost, the integrity of the jawbone underneath it is compromised. The neighboring teeth then begin to slowly drift. This also causes gradual degrading of the jawbone which in turn causes facial deformity. When a lost tooth is replaced with an implant, the integrity of the jaw is maintained.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANT CASES?
1. CONVENTIONAL: In standard cases, dental implants are embedded within the jawbone. Conventional dental implants can be a single tooth, bridge, or a full arch.
In cases of severe bone loss, Zygomatic dental implants will be embedded into the cheekbone (Zygoma). Zygomatic implants are only different from conventional implants in the method of embedding and the length of the implant. This method is used to replace the teeth in the upper jaw.

HOW THEY WORK
The DIOnavi Difference
DIOnavi EcoDigital Implant Procedure
What makes us different than other dental offices that place implants is the type of implant we use. We have partnered with dental technology company called DIOnavi to provide our patients with an implant that provides the most comfort and the fastest turn around. With our collaboration with DIOnavi our patients are able to start their treatment when they receive their consultation.
The entire implant process includes an initial consultation where our team will answer any and all questions you or a loved one have about the implants. At that same appointment, we can take a scan to begin creating the digital impression for implants or we can schedule a separate visit for the scan. The subsequent appointment will be the appointment to place the implant. Expect to have a post operation visit a week or two after the implant is placed. During the post operation visit, we will scan the healing abutment for the crown. The crown will take 3-8 weeks to fabricate. Then the crown will be placed.
Our partnership with DIOnavi enables us to give our patients a premier dental experience. With the DIOnavi procedure, data is collected from the patient’s intra-oral scans. That data is then used to create a:
With the personalized, minimally invasive DIOnavi EcoDigital Implant Procedure, there is no surgical incision, and recovery is quick without the complications that come with an incision-based procedure. Conventional implant techniques require a surgical incision and recovery time can be slow and painful due to swelling and risk of infection.
Dental Implants are the permanent, ideal solution for tooth loss and decay. Those who favor dentures often do so for the lower cost, yet pay the price of discomfort and occasional slippage, leading to embarrassment or slurred speech. Quality dental implants that are placed by an experienced surgeon and are properly maintained have a 98% success rate to never become loose.
Additionally, Implants reinforce the jaw structure as natural teeth do. Dentures add no reinforcement to the jawbone and allow for continued deterioration. This leads to warping of the lower region of the face. Before and after photos of dental implant patients, however, often show an improvement in jaw structure.
The DIOnavi EcoDigital Implant Procedure is the clear choice for fast, comfortable tooth replacements. If you have missing teeth, permanent dental implants can be an excellent option to fill those spaces. Implants are more comfortable than dentures, partials, or bridges and can last a lifetime.
