Motor vehicle accidents, accidental falls, sports injuries, interpersonal violence, and work-related injuries can all cause facial trauma.

Facial Trauma FAQs

Whether you are a return patient or new to Argyle Associates, you might have some questions. Below are the most common questions our patients ask us.

Implants are one of the best ways to replace missing teeth. The root portion of a missing tooth is replaced by a surgically inserted titanium post which fuses to the jawbone. An abutment is placed on top of the implant, which connects the crown to the implant. The dental crown is a false tooth which is specifically shaped and designed to match the rest of your natural teeth.

There are several kinds of dental implant options. These include:

  • Single implant and crown
  • Bridge on implants
  • Teeth in a day
  • Zygomatic implants

Dental implants and dental bridges are both solutions to replace missing teeth, however there are a few important differences between the two. Dental bridges consist of a false tooth or teeth which are held into place by dental crowns placed on natural teeth surrounding the missing tooth.

Dental implants look and perform more like natural teeth. They do not require anything to be placed on natural teeth, and they are inserted directly into the jawbone for maximum strength. Dental implants:

  • Do not require artificial plastic to cover the roof of the mouth
  • Do not require adhesives or denture creams
  • Can minimize ongoing bone loss in the jaws while bridges require adjacent teeth to be filed down, dental implants do not impact healthy neighboring teeth.

Our patients typically report less discomfort and faster healing compared to the extraction of a tooth. We recommend mild pain relievers for two or three days following a dental implant procedure. After that time, patients are typically pain-free. Sensitivity is usually not an issue with dental implants.

Immediately after your procedure, you will want to make sure that you follow
Dental Implant Post-Operation Instructions. These instructions help ensure you have the best chance at complete healing and can get back to

You will clean your implants just like you clean your natural teeth. Brush and floss regularly and see your dentist for routine cleanings. We also recommend using a water pick. Adequate hygiene is vital for the health of your dental implants.
