Traditional Dental Implants
Dental implants are a permanent, stable solution to replace one or several missing teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. The post acts as an artificial tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. After implants are placed, a healing period is necessary to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post. Following this healing period, our periodontist will place the dental implant restoration or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture, or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom-made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance. A dental implant is an excellent option for restoring your smile because it is designed to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth- and with proper care, it can last a lifetime.

Custom Periodontics is thrilled to offer All-On-4 dental implants in Fort Worth, Texas. With this type of restoration, Dr. Shelby Nelson can place four implants on the top of your mouth and four on the bottom to restore your entire smile. All-On-4 is an excellent alternative to traditional dentures, as it is much more stable and comfortable. To learn more about All-On-4 dental implants, please contact our office to schedule a consultation with our periodontist.
If you are looking for a stable, lasting solution for replacing multiple missing teeth, our periodontist may recommend implant-supported dentures. Implant-retained dentures are very similar to traditional dentures; however, they are stabilized by dental implants. Denture wearers often complain that dentures become loose and “float” around the mouth, limiting their ability to eat and speak comfortably. Implant dentures are a cost-effective solution, and in many cases, we can actually retrofit an existing denture with implants.
The first step in anchoring your denture with dental implants is the placement of the implants. The dental implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone in order to anchor your denture securely. While the specific number of implants required will depend on your individual needs, most cases require 4-6 dental implants per denture. Once the implants have been placed and allowed sufficient healing time, your denture is attached on top, providing your denture with exceptional stability. Many patients report that their implant-retained dentures feel and function more like their natural teeth.
