Dental Implants in Tyler, TX

If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants can be an excellent solution to restore your smile and improve your quality of life. Southern Surgical Arts, located in Tyler, Texas, offers dental implant services to patients in need of artificial tooth replacements. Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone to act as roots for replacement teeth. With their high success rate and long-lasting results, dental implants are a popular choice for individuals seeking a permanent solution to their tooth loss.

Dental Implant Surgery

The first step of any oral surgery at our practice is a consultation with one of our oral surgeons. During this appointment, they will evaluate your oral health and determine if you are a suitable candidate for the surgical procedure. They will discuss your options and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Dental implant surgery involves placing tiny titanium posts, which act as artificial tooth roots, into your jawbone. These posts will serve as a secure foundation for the replacement teeth. The surgical procedure itself is performed under anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Our team at Southern Surgical Arts offers different anesthesia options, including local anesthesia and full IV sedation, to meet your needs.

After the dental implant surgery, a healing period is necessary for the implants to fully integrate with the bone. During this time, temporary teeth may be provided to maintain functionality and aesthetics. Once the healing period is complete, the second phase of the procedure begins, which involves attaching permanent crowns or a bridge to the implants. These replacement teeth are custom-made to match the appearance of your natural teeth, giving you a beautiful and seamless smile.

The entire dental implant process can vary in length depending on the number of implants required, but generally, it takes 30-60 minutes for a single implant and 1-3 hours for multiple implants. Our skilled surgeons and staff will ensure that you feel comfortable throughout the procedure and will provide detailed aftercare instructions to promote a smooth recovery.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Most healthy individuals who are able to undergo dental procedures like extractions are suitable candidates for dental implants. However, certain factors such as bone loss around the jaw may affect the placement of implants. In some cases, bone grafting procedures can be performed to restore bone density, making implant placement possible.

To determine if dental implants are right for you, it is best to schedule a consultation with an experienced oral surgeon. The oral surgeons at Southern Surgical Arts in Tyler, Texas, can evaluate your oral health and discuss the best treatment options for your specific needs.

Cost of Dental Implants

The cost of dental implants can vary depending on several factors, including the number of teeth being replaced, the need for additional procedures such as bone grafting or sinus lifts, the type of anesthesia used during the procedure, insurance coverage, and more. When you come to Southern Surgical Arts, we can provide an estimated cost of treatment during your consultation.

While the initial cost of dental implants may be higher compared to other tooth replacement options, they offer long-term value and benefits. Dental implants provide a potential lifelong solution, preventing bone loss and dental shifting, and allowing for comfortable eating, speaking, and smiling.

"I came to Southern Surgical Arts to have some dental work done. I'm really, really happy with the work that they've done. They have done a fantastic job of taking care of me. I personally have recommended them to other people because they've always been very professional, and they have been very caring in everything they've done for me. The staff here is wonderful. They're very concerned about the patient. Depending on what procedure you have, they'll call you back, check on you, and make sure you're doing okay. And follow-ups are very easy. Pretty much they have an open-door policy. You can come in if you have a question if you cannot get through. They're really awesome."

"The neat thing about Southern Surgical Arts is, not only is it clean and friendly, but you know that the people here are focused on you. The doctor here made me feel great because he was friendly and was attentive, and not only interested in my medical situation, but interested in making sure that I personally felt very comfortable. The procedure was very successful, and the recovery was just as easy as you could possibly be. The experience I had here was far above and beyond what I expected, and I just am so proud that I chose Southern Surgical Arts."

"All of my life, I have been having problems with my teeth — my gums were bad — and so I came to Southern Surgical Arts. The procedure that they did for me was called a locator. I have two implants on my top and four implants on my bottom jaw. My teeth actually snap in and snap out. They're very comfortable — not having any problems at all with them, and I love them. The staff here at Southern Surgical Arts, they made me feel very comfortable. I would definitely say that they are the place to go if you need to have any type of surgical-type dentistry done."

"I needed an oral surgeon because I had lost all of my lower posterior teeth. My general dentist suggested I come see Dr. Charles Stone. We did five implants and then did PVC bridges over that. It was just simple. It was easy. I’ve never been through a dental experience that went that well before. I just love Dr. Stone. There’s nobody else I would trust when it comes to an oral surgery procedure than Southern Surgical Arts. If anyone in the Bullard, Tyler, or Canton area needed oral surgery, I would definitely come see Dr. Charles Stone and his staff."

Ben Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure

"I had an injury as a child, so I had a permanent damaged tooth that needed to be corrected and was able to talk with them about that. Made me feel real at home. I came to their place here at Southern Surgical Arts and found out that I needed an implant, and along the way, we had the implant done. I was going to be leaving for a cruise soon thereafter, and they even sent me with a goodie bag of tools in case I had a problem while I was on the boat. The care that they've given me here has been remarkable. They've been very kind and caring and instructive all the way through from start to finish with the procedure. If I had to do anything like this again, I would certainly come back here, and if anyone ever asked me, I would certainly say that you can't go wrong at Southern Surgical Arts."

Frequently Asked Questions

What is recovery like for dental implant procedures?

Recovery from dental implant procedures varies for each individual. After implant placement, it takes several weeks for the implants to fully secure in the bone. During this time, a soft food diet may be necessary, and aftercare instructions will be provided to ensure proper healing.

Is the dental implant procedure painful?

No, the dental implant procedure is not typically painful. Oral surgeons administer anesthesia to ensure a painless experience during the procedure. Some soreness may occur during the recovery period, but medications and aftercare instructions will be provided to manage any discomfort.

What if there is not enough bone left for a secure dental implant placement?

If there is not enough bone left for a secure implant placement, bone grafting procedures can be performed to restore bone density. This allows for safe and successful implant placement.
