Replacing a single tooth

 

Dental implants dentist Kyle

Benefits of an all-ceramic crown on implant: 
When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

In this case, a so-called one-piece implant is used. This means that all components are installed as a single unit, resulting in immediately full functioning teeth, shorter treatment time and minimized pain.

  • Immediately functioning teeth

  • Excellent esthetic result

  • Life long, stable solution

Treatment: 
This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.

COURSE OF TREATMENT

INSTALLING THE NEW TOOTH – STEP-BY-STEP

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

1: Before the procedure
The dentist makes a first examination and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.
2: Installing the implant
The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary tooth is provided that allows you eat and function like normal almost immediately.  The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.

3: Attaching the new crown
The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life. No additional treatment is needed.  
4: End result
You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. Do your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean and 

 
ALTERNATIVES TO AN ALL-CERAMIC CROWN ON IMPLANT

 dental bridge Kyle TX Tooth-supported fixed bridge
A traditional bridge involves grinding down adjacent teeth to support the bridge. It is a stable solution with good esthetics and function that is fairly easy to install. However, this alternative has two main disadvantages: continuous bone resorbtion in the edentulous area, and sacrificing healthy teeth on behalf of the bridge.

Removable partial denture
This is not a permanent alternative to a lost tooth. It is unstable and loosely attached, which affects both function and comfort. A removable partial denture is made of plastic – a material that can’t create the same esthetic result as a ceramic crown. The benefits are few but do exist: adjacent teeth aren’t affected. It is easily and quickly installed and relatively cheap.

  • Everyone was very friendly. Dentist explained everything very well and I was relieved that they didn’t recommend things that I really don’t need at this time. Glad I chose them for my new dentist!

  • Best experience at a dentist's office to date! The staff were pleasant and extremely polite. No sales push! The Dr., Dr. D, took his time, made sure that I understood what he was checking and why, and then laid out a treatment plan for me! Did I mention the patient rooms... I almost forgot that I was getting a check up because I was watching NatGeo on the ceiling! Highly recommend! (I had 5:30 appointment time that really fit in to my work schedule).

  • positive review 

    I have never been to a dentist office where my kids and myself felt comfortable the entire time. My kiddos were always afraid of the dentist and I have always felt quite uncomfortable myself as I have had a lot of serious problems with my teeth. Kyle Parkway Dentistry has changed all this. The kids are actually looking forward to going back because they loved the hygienist and the doctor so much. I am infinitely grateful to have found this place!

    Oh, and they have a TV on the ceiling!

  • I was in a bind trying to find a emergency dental office seeing new patients. I looked up dentistry near me and read your reviews, which were awesome. I am terrified of Dentist. Have had a few terrible visits in the past, so I usually don't go until it is an emergency. Well let me tell you from the minute I picked up the phone it was a great experience, you worked me in an 1 1/2 after I called. When I arrived everyone was so nice and understanding. When taken to the back the Dr was quite booked with patients but because I was so afraid he went ahead and gave me nitrous to calm me and didn't make me feel strange for being scared. While he worked on my tooth extraction he was very gentle and for the 1st time ever it was not a wrestling match when getting it out...The staff even set me up on a 4 month payment plan... if you are near Kyle I suggest you go see this wonderful staff!!!! They are the best I have ever went to and will continue for the rest of my dental needs always!!!!

  • I actually enjoyed my visit to the dentist!The office was beautiful and I was met by a very friendly and efficient receptionist. All of the other people that I met were also friendly and efficient. Everyone knew their job and did it with pride. They were informative but not overwhelming. I loved being given options for future work and was pleased to be given all of the prices also. I never felt pressured. Thanks for a great experience. I will be seeing you soon.

  • Outstanding Dr. McConnell, I call him Dr. Perfect! He does a great and detailed job every time.
    The dental technician Marty was superb. He did an excellent job cleaning my teeth.
    Highly recommend this Dental Practice!

  • I enjoy seeing a diverse group of people. They treated me well and respected my fears of going into the dentist. Marty is really helpful and really goes out of his way to make sure you are taken care of. If he ever leaves Kyle Parkway Dentistry I might just go follow him so I can be valued as a customer. I cleaned my teeth about 85-95% and even then when I go to the dentist they are really rough with my teeth and gums. But this time Marty was very thorough and made sure I experience little to no pain. And I have never been treated with that kind of oral care! Please follow Marty’s example and this place will thrive! I also did not have to wait a long time which is a plus since I am a husband, student and full time Financial worker. And my time is valuable so thank you for respecting that!
