Dental Implants in
Keller

If you have missing teeth or teeth that need to be extracted and replaced, a dental implant might be the right choice for you. No other tooth replacement option creates a better, longer-lasting solution than dental implants. Implants are typically small, screw-shaped titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth and are covered by porcelain crowns that look and feel just like your old tooth. If ill-fitting, uncomfortable dentures or a retainer with false teeth aren't the right choice for you, ask Highland Oaks Family Dentistry what we can do to recreate your smile.

Implants help to preserve tooth-supporting bone that naturally deteriorates when a tooth is lost, preventing further problems in the future. As a minor surgical procedure, the post is inserted into the jawbone where the missing tooth once was, and it is left to heal for a set period of time before the tooth-like crown is attached. While it heals, the bone fuses to the implant, leading to a 95 percent success rate that corrects even the most severe problems associated with missing teeth.

There are three primary tooth replacement options that Highland Oaks Family Dentistry offers: single tooth replacements, multi-tooth replacements, and implant-supported dentures. Depending upon the number of missing teeth, certain implant options will be superior to others:

We use a high-strength topical gel that provides profound numbing of the gums. This gel is made of 20% Benzocaine, and it is applied before an injection is given to help eliminate any initial “pinch” that might otherwise be felt from the point of the needle.
Highland Oaks Family Dentistry is proud to offer dental technology specifically designed to bring an anesthetic solution to body temperature just before an injection for your optimal comfort. When normal room-temperature shots are given, the body tends to amplify the pain felt from the colder anesthetic being pushed into the gums. Warming the anesthetic can significantly reduce this discomfort. This step has been shown to decrease instances of pain felt when receiving a shot.
A revolutionary new technology called the DentalVibe is the secret weapon of our Three-Step Comfort Process. Highland Oaks Family Dentistry is one of the few practices in the area using DentalVibe, which is a high-tech device that provides soothing vibrations to the gums during an injection. When we use the DentalVibe device, patients don’t even realize that they’ve received shots! How does it work? Vibration signals travel to the brain faster than pain signals do, so DentalVibe’s vibrations reach the brain first and essentially block the sensation of pain from ever being felt. The result is astounding to most patients, but especially those who have always felt fearful of dental injections. When we use DentalVibe, patients are amazed and truly thankful for the amount of comfort they feel during injections. Come in and experience the difference for yourself! When we take care of you and your smile, we want you to feel comfortable every step of the way.

In the case of failed implants, which are somewhat rare, poor oral hygiene and a lack of regular cleanings (which create bacteria that are damaging to implants) are usually the culprits. Clenching or grinding teeth, which occurs in one-in-four people, is another possible reason for implant rejection. Highland Oaks Family Dentistry will coach you on proper maintenance and cleaning.

Brandi Fernandez

-I was Recommended by a long time friend that works there (Selena) as she knew I was struggling to find dental care that was affordable but I also have a fear of getting work done. The facility is extremely clean and the staff was super nice. I have difficult work that needed to be completed and they were so patient with me it made me feel very comfortable. Highland Oaks will be my preferred Dentistry from now on!
