Dental Implants

If you’ve lost teeth for any reason, or if you wear dentures that continually wobble or slip out of place, talk with Dr. Pointer about dental implants. Instead of attaching to gums or surrounding teeth, implants anchor into the jawbone to form a reliable foundation for crowns, bridgework, partials, or dentures.

A Solid Solution for Replacement Teeth

An x-ray of dental implantsIf you’re considering implants, Dr. Pointer will assess your oral health and jawbone density to make sure that implants are the best option for you. Depending on your unique case, you may need individual implants or implants to retain a denture, partial, or bridge. He can explain the benefits and what to expect during the procedure, and he’ll be happy to answer all of your questions.

As a general dentist, Dr. Pointer will oversee your dental implant procedure. He’ll refer you to an oral surgeon for implant placement surgery, then work with the specialist and dental lab to ensure optimal results.

During the brief implant surgery, an oral surgeon will secure small, biocompatible posts into the sockets left by one or more missing teeth. Once your mouth heals, Dr. Pointer will secure your final restorations in our Fort Worth office. Your new implants will look and feel like natural teeth. Because they’ll feature a solid foundation in your jaw, you’ll regain the ability to eat chewy and crunchy foods that may have been eliminated from your diet in the past. Caring for your implants requires daily brushing and flossing, as well as sis-month checkups and cleanings – just like natural teeth. If you take good care of the implants, they can last throughout your lifetime.
