Each day, millions of Americans face the difficulty of tooth loss. When left untreated, its effects certainly impact health and well-being, self-confidence and even professional endeavors. However, dentistry today offers an excellent, long-term solution to tooth replacement with dental implants. Whether you are missing one tooth, several teeth or an entire arch, Dr. Vikram Gandhi can return full function to your smile with dental implants in Garland, TX.
Dental implants can improve every area of your life, from how you enjoy food to how you enjoy the company of your loved ones. Whether you’ve had missing teeth for days or years, replacing them can only benefit your life. Implants can save your jaw as well; when you experience a missing tooth, the health of your jaw bone is at immediate risk of decay. With implants, your smile is preserved.
Dental implants can bring peace to your smile.
Why Dental Implants?
Traditional methods of replacing missing teeth include bridges, dentures, or a partial denture. These methods are inconvenient, uncomfortable, and embarrassing. With dental implants, you will feel like you received whole new teeth. Implants last longer than the aforementioned methods, and require no extra care outside of the recommended brushing and flossing regimen.
Are You A Candidate For Implants?
If you are considering implants, your smile and bite must be thoroughly examined and your medical and dental history reviewed. If your mouth is not ideal for implants, corrective procedures such as bone grafting may be recommended before the implant can be placed.
What Type of Care Do Dental Implants Require?
Once the implants are in place, they will serve you well for many years if you take care of them and keep your mouth healthy. This means taking the time for daily oral hygiene (brushing and flossing) and keeping regular appointments with your dentists.

What is a Dental Implant?
- Replacing a Single ToothAn individual implant and custom crown is the treatment of choice for replacing a single missing tooth. The implant and crown replacement solution does not require that neighboring teeth be cut down to support your tooth replacement, such as with a traditional dental bridge. Replacing a single tooth with a tooth implant is presently the standard of care in dentistry, and may be the ideal solution to restore function and beauty to your smile.
- Replacing Several TeethImplants are an excellent solution for addressing multiple missing teeth, and provide unparalleled stability over traditional bridge and denture options. If you are missing several consecutive teeth, you may need an implant supported bridge, where two or more tooth implants support a natural-looking bridge spanning the space of your missing teeth. In addition, an implant supported removable appliance, either a denture or partial denture, can be made with enhanced stability to address more extensive or full arch tooth loss. Preparatory procedures like sinus modification or ridge augmentation may be necessary for tooth implant success if the bony foundation will not adequately support implant placement.
