Dental implants offer you a permanent way to replace one or multiple missing teeth. However, it's crucial that you choose a dental office with the skills and knowledge to provide you with a satisfactory experience. At Dr. Kurt Calender Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we're proud to offer high-quality restorations ranging from crowns to All-on-4®. We also work with several trusted oral surgeons for implant placement and pretreatments like sinus lifts.

We know how frustrating it can be to visit a dental office and feel like you're not being shown the respect and kindness you deserve. That's why a hallmark of our practice is treating each patient who walks through our doors like a member of our family. Our team can't wait to meet you and help you take the first step in your dental implant journey.

Breaking Down Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the most popular tooth replacement options. However, it's normal for patients not to know what dental implants encompass. Our dental team is here to give you the information you need to feel comfortable and confident about the entire process.

A dental implant can be broken down into three components: an implant post that anchors a restoration, an abutment that connects the restoration to the implant, and a tooth-shaped restoration that sits on top of everything. Typically, dental implants are made of durable body-safe materials that can last for decades with proper care. They're an excellent option for patients of all ages, whether you're in your middle or golden years.

Creating Long-Lasting Dental Restorations in Southlake

At Dr. Kurt Calender Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we have the experience and capability to create beautiful and durable implant-supported restorations that satisfy your unique needs. We offer a wide range of restorative options that includes everything from bridges to partial dentures.

When you meet with our team for the first time, Dr. Calender will sit down with you and establish which of our restorations may be right for you. He takes various factors into consideration, from personal preferences to the information gleaned from your oral exam. Our restorative options include, but are not limited to:

Crowns: This restoration is perfect for replacing a single missing tooth. We can either place a crown or multiple crowns throughout your smile.

Bridges: An implant-supported bridge may be ideal if you suffer from multiple missing teeth in a row. A bridge is anchored on either side by crowns and blends seamlessly with your remaining teeth.

Full & partial dentures: Many of our patients have prior experience with dentures, and those interested in the same benefits will find them with implant-supported dentures. Our full and partial options are ideal for replacing entire or half arches of teeth.

All-on-4: All-on-4 is a type of implant-supported denture that has unique features that separate it from other options. For example, All-on-4 uses fewer implant posts than traditional dentures, reducing the impact on your smile and improving recovery times.

Helping You Get the Pretreatments You Need

During your initial exam, Dr. Calender may determine that you need one or multiple pretreatments before receiving your dental implants. Although we don't directly provide you with pretreatments, our office works closely with trusted specialists who offer a wide range of services to prepare your smile for implants. You can rest assured they'll treat you with the same friendliness and professionalism as our practice.

Tooth Extractions: One of the primary goals of our office is to save your natural teeth whenever possible. However, to receive your dental implants, it may be necessary to extract one or multiple teeth. Typically, we won't extract your teeth unless they've been severely impacted by decay or damage and can't be repaired.

Bone Grafts: A significant obstacle in dental implants is when you don't have a healthy and strong jawbone. When bone isn't dense enough, your dental implant can't effectively fuse to your jaw. A bone graft is a surgical procedure that takes healthy bone and reinforces an otherwise weak or brittle area.

Sinus Lifts: A sinus lift reinforces your upper jawbone when it isn't strong enough or shaped correctly for dental implants. While similar in concept to a bone graft, the difference lies in the part of your jawbone we're working on, as sinus lifts are reserved for the upper portion of your smile and raise your sinus floor.
