Dental Implant

When you have no teeth, it can be difficult to smile with confidence. Dental implants are different from bridges or dentures because the implant actually replaces the missing tooth root, rather than just trying to mimic one. An excellent solution for partial loss of teeth, they are used for all types of permanent restorations, even entire dental smiles. An implant is a titanium rod that acts like the root of your original tooth. It is implanted into your jawbone and will fuse with the natural bone within 4 to 6 months. With proper care, you can maintain the appearance and function of your implants for many years to come.
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots made of titanium, a biologically inert metal. The implant totally replaces the function of an extracted tooth and functions like a natural tooth in structural support and function. It is anchored into the jawbone and fused with the surrounding bone, enabling dentures to snap into place. This supports crowns, bridges and dentures. If you are planning to replace a single tooth or multiple ones the best option is to replace it with a titanium dental implant.

Mini Dental Implants at SC DENTAL GROUP, Plano, TX :

Mini dental implants mimic the function and look of real ones. They’re made from titanium and filled with a strong ceramic. The implant’s screw holds the crown firmly in place, making them ideal for use with mini bridges . It’s important to seek out expert help to ensure a successful treatment so visit our offices today.
The mini dental implant, a 3.5 mm implant in a cylindrical structure is designed to be placed behind the single tooth site in the mouth. These implants are much shorter than a normal dental implant and can replace a single tooth in the mouth. The mini dental implant bone interface is much larger than an abutment used for a bridge or crown, therefore this implant structure has been designed with 3.5mm diameter threads that can be stabilized or Osseo integrated into the bone in the mouth.

Titanium Dental Implants at SC DENTAL GROUP, Plano, TX :

Titanium Dental Implants are a treatment option for patients who have lost a single tooth or multiple teeth. In addition to the natural white color, titanium implants have several properties that have led to widespread use of these devices. These include excellent biocompatibility, superior corrosion resistance, ease of fabrication, and a high resistance to fatigue fracture.
With the recent advances in implant dentistry, it is possible to reconstruct implants in situations where natural teeth are missing. Implants are used to support crowns, bridges or to support dentures, resulting in a fixed or removable solution for patients. Titanium implants have excellent biocompatibility, osseo integration and minimal degradation of morphological appearance, making them especially suitable for maxilla reconstructions.

Zirconia Dental Implants at SC DENTAL GROUP, Plano, TX :

Micro-alloyed zirconia dental implants are increasingly popular for patients. Zirconia dental implants offer the natural feel and appearance that people want in dentures, bridges, and partial plates to replace lost teeth. They also offer the bio integration properties of other metal-free dental implant materials like titanium, without thermal absorption. Fewer porosity means greater success rates, which makes micro-alloyed zirconia implants an ideal for both single tooth replacement and reparative procedures like bone anchoring. Zirconia dental implants are made from a stable thermoplastic zirconium oxide ceramic material with precious metal alloys introduced for hardness where needed, according to the International Standards Organization.
Advanced Dental Technologies have never been more In-Demand. In this digital age, one of the most frequently requested procedures in cosmetic dentistry is to replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. At SC DENTAL GROUP, Plano, TX. just turn to our team of talented and experienced dental professionals because we have the latest cutting-edge dental technologies combined with concentrated,compassionate care.

Ceramic Implants

Implant retained restorations are a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth, offering greater stability and longevity than alternatives such as fixed bridges and partial dentures. Ceramic implants, which integrate with bone and tissue to provide a more natural tooth replacement option with better aesthetics, offer a 97% success rate for strength and longevity when used in appropriate candidates
Ceramic implants are the next generation of dental implant restoration. The beauty of ceramic is that it will not stain, discolor or become brittle over time. Although ceramic is not compatible with all dental implant systems, if you have a methacrylate-based system, you may qualify for a ceramic implant.

What is a Dental Implant?

The best way to replace a missing tooth is a permanent replacement that looks and feels like your natural teeth did. A dental implant is a small screw-like structure that serves as the replacement for natural tooth. After extraction, an implant can successfully and permanently replace a single missing tooth, or multiple teeth by anchoring bridges and/or crowns. The procedure entails placing the implant into the jawbone. The bone bonds with the implant and ultimately fuses with it, creating a new foundation for porcelain restorations.

What is Zirconia?

Zirconia, also known as Zirconium Dioxide (ZrO2 for short), is a non-metal substance commonly confused with zirconium. It has amazing physical properties that make it suitable for high-temperature applications. This material is very white, pure, and stable in air. Zirconium is a chemical element. Zirconium is the property of being extremely resistant to corrosion, although pure zirconium is found in its natural state as the mineral zircon. This fact suggests that the durability of zirconium is backed by several centuries of practical experience in which it is known to be highly resistant to corrosion.
When zirconium is chemically changed to create zirconia, its structure changes tetragonally (tet-a-gon-a-ly) rather than cubic; this also makes it much stronger than zirconium. Zirconia is nonmetallic: corrosion resistance, tolerance of heat (it can withstand temperatures up to 1150° C), and the fact that it’s nonreactive has led many people to use it as a dental replacement. It’s also commonly used in the fabrication of screws and springs.

Implant Placement :

Implant placement surgery reverses a denture-dependent smile and is the most direct way to replace missing teeth. The bone in your jaw heals around the prosthesis and creates the foundation for long-term success from the newly restored ability to eat, talk, and smile again. This procedure will open up new possibilities of life after an extensive period of denture usage and greatly enhance your living experience.
The implant is custom made for the mouth, for a perfect fit and maximum comfort. They are made out of titanium, a very strong metal. Titanium does not rust; however, if you accidentally bite a filling, it will chip instead of break off. Titanium has some of the best properties that metals can have.

Why a dental implant?

They create a strong foundation for replacement teeth that preserves jaw bone density and height, avoiding the torque and erosion that can be caused by a bridge. Implants also avoid the necessity of cutting down good tooth structure on either side of the extraction site for anchor crowns for a bridge. Implants recreate the original tooth dynamic, so flossing remains easy.
Treatments with implants offer enormous advantages over dental bridges. Implants prevent bone and gum loss because they are not anchored in surrounding tissue. They are not loose parts that need to be inserted into neighboring teeth, and they do not require adjustment after placement.

How much do dental implants cost?

Dental implants are surgically implanted in the mouth and act like teeth. They’re made of metal and ‘feel’ like your own teeth. Dental surgeons have many options for dental implants, including different materials made from stainless steel, ceramic, or titanium. The cost for dental implants depends on several factors, such as the type of implant used by your surgeon and the restoration that’s placed over the implant once it is properly placed within the jawbone.
Currently, the cost of a single tooth implant can range between $1,300 and $3,000 depending on the type you may need. If you require a dental bridge to replace a missing tooth, it can cost between $6,000 and $12,000.

Implant Crown:

Implants crowns made by Roydentlab are professionally and carefully designed to serve the purpose of prosthesis consummating the dental implant process. The crown is made of all ceramic material to maximize esthetics and minimize galvanism.

Why Ceramic Over Titanium Implants?

If you are looking for a long-term restorative option, we recommend zirconia implants over titanium. Studies show that bone and gum growth is more prolific around the ceramics of ceramic zirconia, resulting in a more natural-looking tooth. The white color of ceramic zirconia produces an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
  • Titanium
  • Grey metallic color
  • Weak metallic bonds
  • Thermic conductor
  • Electric conductor
  • Possible oxidation
  • Possible corrosion
  • Zirconia
  • Solid white color
  • Strong covalent bonds
  • Thermic insulator
  • Electric insulator
  • Oxidation resistant
  • No chemical corrosion
Ceramic implants are tough, which is why they’re a preferred material for root canal fillings. The implant, like the zirconia crowns that follow, bonds securely to its site using micrometric precision. It is stronger, so you need less of it, and the surrounding bone fuses to it in nine months. You can bite into an apple just ten days after the operation.
Titanium is a unique metal that has become an increasingly common material in
cosmetic implant procedures. It’s been used to create more high-quality implants than any other metal, including dental implants, hip replacements, and knee replacements. But what exactly is titanium made of? It contains 3% aluminum and many trace elements you might not even know exist, such as cobalt, chromium, copper, iron, manganese, and nickel.
