Dr. Suri is among a select group of dentists in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, who are qualified and equipped to offer every step in the implant process. From the surgical positioning of implants in the jaw to the attachment of lovely dental restorations to complete the process, Dr. Suri does it all and does it to the best of her ability.
Our many valued patients from across the Metroplex trust that their new teeth will look and feel indistinguishable from unaltered healthy teeth – to the point where they forget which tooth has the implant! Additionally, our team ensures the utmost comfort and a hassle-free experience at every visit.
Older forms of tooth replacement only replace the visible parts of the teeth. For instance, dental bridges replace the white part of the tooth or the crown above the gumline. Likewise, partial and complete dentures use materials designed to look like crowns and gum tissue. There were no options designed to replace the structures that support the teeth. Since then, implants have been transforming restorative dentistry. They differ from the other prosthetics mentioned here because the implant itself is, for all intents and purposes, an artificial tooth root.
The implant is cylindrical-shaped and made from biocompatible materials like titanium. These properties help to best mimic the characteristics of a natural tooth root. Since the implant is biocompatible, it naturally fuses or joins to the bone around it after Dr. Suri precisely positions it in the jaw. She uses her considerable know-how and advanced technologies to place the implant in the most ideal position. This helps to minimize the risk of implant failures later on. Once the implant is effectively joined to the rest of the jaw, she may attach it to the dental restoration. Restorative options include dental porcelain. This material is known to ideally replicate the characteristics of tooth enamel, such as its ability to reflect light.
Additionally, Dr. Suri may place additional implants to support more replacement teeth. These implants can anchor a dental bridge or stabilize a full upper or lower denture. With advanced techniques and technologies, we do not need to place one implant to support or retain each and every tooth. A minimal number of implants may hold a maximum number of teeth due to how each implant is positioned. This characteristic helps keep implant-retained teeth affordable and minimizes the time our patients spend in treatment and healing.
Since the prosthetic teeth are quite literally “rooted” or stabilized in the jawbone, our patients enjoy numerous benefits:
