At McKinney Dental, we offer dental implants as a state-of-the-art solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring the beauty and function of your smile. Led by Dr. Mary Zoe Collier DDS, our experienced team is dedicated to providing personalized care and high-quality dental implant services tailored to your unique needs.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots. These biocompatible implants provide a stable foundation for dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or dentures, offering a permanent and lifelike solution for missing teeth.

The Dental Implant Process:

1.  Consultation: During your initial consultation, Dr. Collier will evaluate your oral health, discuss your treatment options, and determine if dental implants are the right solution for you.
2.  Treatment Planning: Dr. Collier will create a personalized treatment plan based on your unique needs and goals. This may include additional procedures such as bone grafting or sinus augmentation to ensure the success of your implant placement.
3.  Implant Placement: The dental implants will be surgically placed into the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure. Over time, the implants will integrate with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration, providing a stable and secure foundation for the dental restoration.
4.  Healing Period: After implant placement, a healing period of several months is typically required to allow the implants to fully integrate with the jawbone. During this time, temporary restorations may be placed to maintain function and aesthetics.
5.  Restoration: Once the implants have fully integrated, Dr. Collier will fabricate and attach custom-made dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or dentures to the implants, restoring the appearance and function of your smile.

Benefits of Dental Implants:

•   Stability and durability: Dental implants fuse with the jawbone to create a strong and stable foundation for replacement teeth, allowing them to function just like natural teeth.
•   Preservation of bone health: Implants stimulate the jawbone, helping to prevent bone loss and preserve facial structure and appearance.
•   Aesthetic appeal: Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth, providing a seamless and lifelike smile.
•   Improved oral health: Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, dental implants do not rely on adjacent teeth for support, preserving the health and integrity of surrounding teeth.
