Dental Implants

Missing teeth make it difficult to chew and speak, and can rob you of your confidence. Fortunately, modern dentistry has a solution.

Dental implants provide the ultimate foundation for replacement teeth while preventing jawbone atrophy after tooth loss.

Dumas Family Dental in Dumas, TX, can place and restore your dental implants to fully rehabilitate your bite.

What Can Dental Implants Do for Me?

Implants are titanium devices that replace lost tooth roots. This landmark in dentistry can provide a wealth of benefits, including:

Incredible Support

Your dental implant can support tooth replacement solutions like a crown, bridge, or denture, keeping them firmly in place at all times. With implant-supported restorations, you can enjoy all of your favorite foods again (even steaks and apples) and smile with confidence.

Prevention of Jawbone Atrophy

In the aftermath of tooth loss, your jawbone will shrink and change shape, leading to a sunken appearance and threatening the health and stability of the surrounding teeth. Dental implants provide the stimulation necessary to prevent these changes.

Lifelong Support

Though your crown, bridge, or denture will eventually need to be repaired or replaced, implants can last a lifetime. Simply practicing good oral hygiene and scheduling regular checkups with your dentist can give you decades of benefits.

The Dental Implant Placement Procedure

Here at Dumas Family Dental, we believe that a smile tells a thousand words, and we are dedicated to giving our patients high-quality dental care.

Our Dumas, TX, dental practice offers different types of implants, including titanium, zirconia, and mini implants. Before your implant placement, our doctors will conduct a thorough dental exam to confirm your candidacy and discuss your options.

Your implant placement procedure will involve:


Before your dental procedure begins, the treatment area will receive local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Sedation is available upon request.

Placing the Dental Implants

Your dentist will make an incision in your gums at the site of the missing teeth and place the implants in your jawbone. It will take three to six months for the implants to become completely fused with the bone tissue.

Attaching the Abutment

Once the implants have completely integrated with the jaw, our dentist can then place the abutments on the implants. The abutment acts as a connector and holds your restoration (replacement tooth) in place. It will take a couple of weeks for your gum tissue to heal around the abutments, forming a seal.

Placing the Restoration

Once your gums have healed following abutment placement, your dentist can then place your crown, bridge, or denture.

Mini Dental Implants

Exploring Your Dental Options in Dumas, TX

If you have a small mouth or lack the bone density to support a traditional implant, mini dental implants are an alternative option that can support your restoration. Mini dental implants are about half the diameter of a traditional implant, and the top consists of a small metal ball instead of an abutment. Mini dental implants can do everything a traditional implant can do, including support dentures. We can determine the right implant for you during your initial appointment.
