Missing teeth are a problem you are reminded of all day long: When you eat, when you brush your teeth, and when you smile.
Let Dr. José Montoya at My Mouth Dental in Rowlett, TX, put those issues behind you with dental implants.
For the right patients, Dr. Montoya considers dental implants the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Find out why...
A Long-Lasting Solution
Dental implants can last 40 years or longer. The crown, bridge, or dentures attached to the implants will eventually need to be replaced, but the implants (which act as prosthetic tooth roots) can stay in place for decades with the proper care.
When a tooth is lost, the bone tissue no longer receives stimulation from the tooth root. As a result, the jaw will begin to shrink and change shape. A dental implant stimulates the jawbone, which keeps it healthy and strong.
The dental implant will permanently fuse with the bone tissue in your jaw. One or more implants create a solid foundation for replacement teeth that will not allow them to shift or slip out of place. You can chew and speak with total confidence.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth root made out of titanium. It is implanted in the bone tissue of your jaw, where it becomes permanently fused in order to provide the ultimate stability for your restorations.
The restoration is connected to dental implants using abutments, which are small connector devices. Implants can be used in conjunction with a dental crown, a bridge, or a full set of dentures.
Dr. José Montoya is a dentist who uses advanced technology for placing dental implants and uses only the highest-quality materials at My Mouth Dental in Rowlett.

In addition to his training and education in biology and dental surgery, Dr. Montoya completed a six-month dental implant preceptorship at the University of Texas at San Antonio to immerse himself in the finer details of implant dentistry. He has been placing implants for more than a decade.

Dental Implants Give You A Reason to Smile
Bring Back Your Smile
The high-quality dental implant-supported restorations used by our Rowlett, TX, practice look like your natural teeth. And because they fuse with the jawbone, they feel just as stable as natural teeth as well.
Dentures can slip in your mouth, causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants will lock dentures in place, allowing you to speak clearly without worry. Even replacing a single missing tooth with an implant-supported crown can improve enunciation.
Whether it's one tooth or many, missing teeth can be embarrassing and impact your self-esteem. By filling in the gaps, dental implants can not only restore your smile, but help restore your confidence as well.
Enjoy Meals Again
Traditional dentures can slip and make chewing difficult. Because a dental implant is fused with the jawbone, it won't allow your denture to move, which gives you the freedom to eat any foods you wish, from caramel apples to rare steaks.
Retain Dental Tissue
A traditional dental bridge requires adjacent teeth to be dramatically reshaped so that they can provide support for the artificial teeth. Dental implant-supported restorations don't! Your healthy teeth will stay intact.
Dental Implants Can Keep You Smiling for Years to Come
Implants Are a Versatile Solution
A single missing tooth can be restored with an implant-supported crown to fill the gap.
An implant-supported bridge can replace a row of missing teeth, using an implant at each end.
Full Dental Arch
Those missing all of their upper or lower teeth can restore them with an implant-supported denture.

The Parts of a Dental Implant
What to Expect During Treatment
Once Dr. Montoya determines that you are ready to receive implants, the process involves:
Advantages of Guided Implant Surgery
Dr. Montoya's use of advanced technology at his Rowlett practice allows for precise placement of implants and greater patient comfort. In addition to 3D scans of your mouth, he uses sophisticated computer software to create a guided implant surgery plan.
The advantages of guided implant surgery include:
- Accurate, safer, and more efficient surgery
- Shorter healing time
- Smaller incisions with less bleeding and discomfort
- Bone grafts, if needed, can be minimized
Nervous About Implant Placement? Don't Be We Offer Calming Sedation Dentistry
Many patients put off dental treatment because they fear the dentist's office. While we strive to provide a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere, for patients with anxiety around dental care we also offer calming sedation. We offer several forms of sedation:
- Nitrous oxide, which creates a relaxed feeling that quickly subsides after treatment
- Oral conscious sedation, a liquid sedative taken on-site to induce relaxation
- Intravenous (IV) sedation, administered by an anesthesiologist
- General anesthesia, administered in a hospital setting to make a patient completely unconscious

Don't Want to Go Without Teeth? You Don't Have To We Offer Teeth in a Day
Dental implants take months to fully integrate with your jawbone, but that doesn't mean you're stuck without teeth while your mouth heals. Our Rowlett practice proudly offers Teeth in a Day®.
With this procedure, remaining teeth are extracted, titanium implants placed, and temporary restorations are attached all in a single appointment. Once your implants have healed, your final custom implant-supported denture will be placed.
Who Qualifies for Dental Implants?
A Strong Jawbone
Dental implants rely on the jawbone for support. If your jaw is too weak, your implants are at risk of failure. Unfortunately, because tooth roots provide the stimulation that keeps a jawbone strong, many patients with missing teeth have experienced too much bone recession to qualify for implants. Thankfully, a bone graft or sinus lift can restore your candidacy.
Patients must be healthy enough for surgery. Certain conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes or heart disease, may make oral surgery too risky. In addition, your oral health must be free of disease or decay. Because implants are supported by the gums, patients with gum disease will need periodontal treatments to restore their oral health prior to implant placement.
No Smoking Habit
Smokers must kick the habit at least several weeks before placement surgery, and ideally longer. Nicotine hinders the body's ability to heal, and may also impact the osseointegration process that anchors your implants to your jawbone. In addition, smoking can burn the oral tissues and damage your salivary glands, leading to a dry mouth and potentially to gum disease.
Caring for Your Implants
Good news! Dental implants can be cared for just like natural teeth: you won't need to worry about soaking dentures or removing dental adhesive. Follow these tips to keep your implant-supported restorations in top shape:
- Brush twice a day using a soft-bristled brush and low-abrasive toothpaste, to avoid scratching the restoration.
- Floss daily. Using an interdental brush, floss threader, or water flosser can help clean hard-to-reach areas.
- Visit your dentist twice a year for thorough cleanings and so your dentist can check for any potential problems.
How Much Do Implants Cost?
Dental implants costs are unique to each patient. Costs vary greatly depending on the type of restoration, the materials used, and if preparatory procedures such as a bone graft are needed. Insurance does not typically cover dental implants, though it may contribute to the cost of the restorations. To help keep treatment accessible to all our patients, we offer CareCredit® financing that breaks payments down into manageable monthly installments.
The best way to learn about treatment costs for your needs is via a consultation at our Rowlett, TX, practice.
