Dental Implants – Carrollton, TX
The Modern Solution for Gaps in Your Smile
At some point in your life, you may end up with one or more missing teeth and will need to figure out the best way to fill in the empty space in your smile. As far as modern dentistry is concerned, your best bet in most cases will be dental implants. Instead of just replacing the part of the tooth that sticks out above the gums, implants allow us to replace the underlying roots as well, resulting in the strongest, most stable smile possible. Call Rosemeade Dental today to schedule a consultation to discuss dental implants with our Carrollton, TX dentist, Dr. Albeer.

What is a
A dental implant isn’t a tooth replacement by itself in the same way that a crown or bridge is. It’s a thin metal post that can be surgically inserted into the jaw, where it can fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration. Once implants are fully in place, they can support crowns, bridges, and even full dentures to fill gaps of any size in your smile. In other words, a dental implant is essentially a new root for any number of replacement teeth.
- Natural Function: Getting dental implants doesn’t just fill in the empty space in your mouth. Your new teeth will fulfill the same functions as your natural teeth, which includes stimulating the jawbone so that it doesn’t break down.
- Improved Appearance: New teeth will obviously solve the issue of having noticeable gaps in your grin. The restorations for your implants will be designed to blend in so well that they’re indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
- Improved Diet: Since your teeth won’t slip and will have chewing power that’s almost on par with your natural teeth, you won’t have to give up any of your favorite foods.
- Long Lasting: Most of the time, you can expect a traditional restoration to last around 10 to 15 years. A dental implant has a much longer lifespan on average; in fact, as long as you take good care of it, you can expect to keep it for the rest of your life!
Are Dental Implants
Right for You?
Dental implants are suitable for many different forms of tooth loss. We’ll need to evaluate your mouth for signs of bone loss in the jaw and gum disease. Once these potential problems have been accounted for, we can start planning the implant procedure itself.
Missing Single Tooth
To replace a single missing tooth, we’ll place a dental implant post in the gap. Once the mouth has fully healed, we can attach an abutment and, eventually, a dental crown that has been customized to match your other teeth. This way, we can replace the tooth without needing to alter your remaining teeth to support a dental bridge.
Missing Multiple Teeth
Implant bridges can be used if you’re missing at least three teeth in a row. To make the crown, we’ll place one or more artificial teeth between a pair of crowns. The crowns will be supported by implants and in turn will hold the other prosthetics between them to fill the gap.
Missing All Teeth
Modern dentures are more reliable than ever before, and anchoring them to dental implants can improve their performance even further while also making them easier to care for (since they can simply be brushed like real teeth). It can take anywhere from 4 to 8 implants to support dentures; rest assured that we will always aim for the most conservative number possible.
Start to Finish Convenience
Unlike many other dental offices that claim to provide dental implants, the Rosemeade Dental team is able to complete the entire procedure in our Carrollton dental office. This means from your initial consultation to your placement surgery to when we attach your new teeth, you’ll work with the same professionals that you trust the entire time. This all-inclusive approach not only makes getting dental implants more convenient, but it also helps patients save time and money because they don’t have to travel between different dental offices.
The dental implant process is divided into a number of steps. After the necessary preparations are made, the implants are placed in your mouth, and your new teeth will be placed on them at a later date once you’ve completely healed. Thanks to his implant expertise, Dr. Albeer can complete every phase of the implant process right here under a single roof; you’ll have a dentist you already know and trust helping you every step of the way.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Before you get dental implants, you have to carefully consider the costs involved. We can give you an estimate once we figure out how many implants you need, the type of restoration they’ll support, and what kind of preparatory steps are needed during the treatment. Remember that even though the initial cost of dental implants is usually higher than that of other restorations, their longevity combined with the various benefits they offer make them a well worthwhile investment.
