Since dental implants made their debut over 25 years ago, they have become the standard for quality dental care. These small, biocompatible posts closely imitate natural tooth roots, providing a previously unsurpassed level of support and comfort for replacement teeth. Texarkana dentists Dr. Adriane Lippian and Dr. Jim Lippian proudly offer implant-supported prosthetics.
Dental implants are made from titanium, the same material used in replacement hips and joints. An oral surgeon, whom Dr. Adriane or Jim Lippian works with closely, will place the dental implant(s) in the socket left by the missing tooth. Over a period of about three months, the bone fuses to the implant post.
Once the dental implant site has healed, Dr. Adriane or Jim Lippian will secure a tooth replacement on top. The dentists recommend dental implants for patients with one missing tooth, or several. For maximum stability, Dr. Lippian provides implant-supported lower dentures. Dental implants eliminate the slipping, clicking, and general discomfort associated with lower dentures.
