When you lose a tooth or need an extraction, dental implants are a secure, permanent, and healthy support system for your new replacement teeth. Dental implants are designed to replace both the root and the crown of your natural tooth. Oral surgeons place the implants into the bone beneath the gums, where they naturally integrate with your bone. This bond prevents bone loss and creates a strong foundation for your crowns or partial denture attachments. The implants will permanently hold your teeth in place, and they look and feel identical to healthy teeth.
The oral surgeons at Southern Surgical Arts, Drs. Charles and Brian Stone, have years of experience performing dental implant procedures. Our staff will work as a team with you and your dentist to complete your dental implant treatment. Many patients who want an alternative to a flipper or a bridge are completely satisfied with the results provided by dental implants. You will be able to eat whatever you like without worrying about your teeth causing discomfort, slipping, or falling out of place.

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars to grow into the dental arch. These third molars come in at the back of your mouth — one behind each of your second molars. Wisdom teeth don’t fully grow in until after the other adult teeth finish developing (usually during a person’s early 20s or late teens). Many patients don't realize they have new teeth growing in until their wisdom teeth start causing pain or other problems.
Luckily, dental professionals can track the development of your wisdom teeth and refer you to an oral surgeon. If positioned at an angle, your wisdom teeth will likely cause oral health problems like dental crowding. Oral surgeons can remove wisdom teeth to prevent infections, damage to adjacent teeth, and other subsequent issues. To learn more about wisdom teeth and the oral health problems they tend to cause, review the resources on our website or call our office in Tyler, TX, for more information.
Full-arch replacement is a permanent alternative to removable dentures. The full-arch procedure uses dental implants to hold a full set of new teeth in place securely. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons can perform full-arch replacement to restore an entire upper or lower arch of teeth, depending on your needs. The procedure is much more efficient and cost effective than replacing each tooth with individual implants but still gives the permanence and health benefits of dental implants.
Dental implant-based tooth replacement options offer patients a variety of advantages. In addition to improving patients’ ability to eat the foods they enjoy, dental implants can also prevent bone loss and other oral health problems. The full-arch prosthesis will be custom designed to fit your mouth. To learn more about whether or not the full-arch replacement is right for you, contact our office or watch the videos on our website for additional information.
