Benefits of Dental Implants
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer stability, strength, and oral health benefits that a fixed bridge or traditional denture simply can’t, due to their unique structure that replaces an entire tooth from the roots all the way to the visible dental crown. Patients who are eligible for implant dentistry can benefit in numerous ways from an implant, such as the ability to eat and speak completely naturally, preventing jaw bone loss which would otherwise lead to numerous oral health complications, a very high success rate for a (often lifelong!) tooth replacement, and more. While dental implants are more costly than other tooth replacement option, patients agree that they are well worth the investment given their numerous, long lasting advantages.
How Do Implants Mimic Our Natural Teeth?
A complete dental implant consists of a small titanium post (the implant), an abutment, and crown. The implant serves as an artificial tooth root. Your natural bone actually fuses with the implant, providing a sturdy base and preventing bone loss that would otherwise occur in the absence of a tooth.
The abutment is the connector between the implant and the crown; it is placed on top of the implant to hold and support the crown. The crown is custom-designed to be nearly indistinguishable from your natural teeth in feel, fit, function and appearance!

Our goal is to ensure that your procedure is carried out as comfortably, efficiently and successfully as possible, and to that end our dental team works to stay up to date with the latest advancements in dental technology and methods. By working with the latest tools, Dr. Kwon is able to create personalized treatment plans for our patients that lead to the best possible results.
at Dallas Dental Implant Center
At Dallas Dental Implant Center, we can provide one-stage implant procedures! Dr. Kwon is highly skilled and experienced in implant dentistry, having placed and restored hundreds of dental implants.
In most cases, he can perform a tooth extraction and place the implant, abutment and temporary crown in a single visit. This method reduces treatment time and requires fewer surgical procedures, while also offering better aesthetics and preservation of the bone structure.
In some cases, dental implants cannot be performed due to lack of sufficient bone structure or chronic oral health issues. Regardless of the case, we will go over all available tooth replacement options to find the one that best suits you, your budget and your lifestyle.
