Restore Your Smile With Plano Dental Implants
We often take our teeth for granted. It’s not until we lose one or more teeth that we realize how much we rely on them every day. Along with other issues, missing teeth make it difficult to eat and smile comfortably. All that can change, however, with dental implant treatment at My Dentist in Plano. Dr. Darren Dickson, a teaching faculty member at the CARD Institute (the Center for Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry), can use dental implants to:
- Replace your missing teeth with durable, beautiful implant restorations.
- Give you back a complete smile and increased confidence.
- Allow you to enjoy all your favorite foods again.
- Improve your oral health and help prevent overall health issues.
- Help you look younger, more attractive, and more robust.
- Get precise, long-lasting results, since digitally guided full-arch implant surgery is possible with images from our i3D Smart CT machine.
Enjoy all the benefits of our implant therapy. Call us today to schedule your free consultation including a CT scan and time with Dr. Dickson. We’re located at 6545 Preston Road, Ste. 100 – just down the road from LifeCare Hospitals of Plano.
Implants Will Make Your Mouth Fully Functional Again
Teeth implants serve as artificial tooth roots that can secure several types of dental restorations. Not only do implants replace your missing or damaged teeth, but they also help keep your jawbone strong and healthy.
Unlike some dentists, Dr. Dickson can both place and restore your new implants. This is due in part to his advanced training in implant dentistry, which has helped him earn fellowship status with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and a teaching faculty position with the Center for Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry.
With our in-house lab, you could even get your implants and replacement teeth in a single visit! To ensure precise and accurate treatment, we use a 3-D CT scanner to plan and perform all of our implant procedures. Once your jaw is ready for your new restorations, these are some of the options that may be available to you:
- Single Implant Crown – Dr. Dickson can secure a strong and beautiful zirconia crown to the top of an implant. It will look, feel, and function just like a regular tooth. Best of all, we’ll make it right here in our own lab. You won’t have to wait for your new tooth!
- Implant-Supported Bridge – You can fill in gaps in your smile with a sturdy custom bridge anchored to two or more teeth implants.
- Implant-Retained Dentures – These dentures anchor to implants using a snap-and-ball system. They will fit more securely than conventional dentures and won’t move around in your mouth.
- Implant-Supported Dentures – We’ll attach a set of dentures to a bar anchored to your implants. This setup transfers biting and chewing forces to the bar rather than your gums, making it our most comfortable and secure type of denture.
- All-on-4® – With this innovative procedure, you can get a complete arch of new replacement teeth using only four implants precisely positioned by Dr. Dickson.
- Mini Implants – These implants are similar to standard implants, yet they’re smaller and require less healing time after placement. If your jawbone is not healthy enough to support full-size implants, you may be a good candidate for minis.
- Same-Day Smile – With our in-house lab and Dr. Dickson’s implant expertise, you could get your new implants and restorations the same day. We’ll place your implants and secure temporary replacement teeth to them while your final restorations are made.
If you’re ready to enjoy a full mouth of teeth using dental implants, call us today to schedule your appointment. Beautiful, functional replacement teeth are waiting for you!
"Dear Dr. Dickson and Staff, Thank you for the outstanding dental care for the past nine years. Whether it has been a scheduled maintenance, restorative procedure, or aesthetic preference, I am always reminded of how lucky I am to have found such wonderful individuals for all my dental needs. It is your dedication to detail and caring patient relationships that makes my choice for My Dentist in Plano the perfect choice for my individual care as well as our family dentist without reservation. With every appointment, I am met with caring and professional staff. I enjoy the personal attention that is shown to both myself and family members at each appointment. My children are happy to visit the dentist knowing they will be taken great care of by you and your staff. With My Sincerest Thanks, C.D."- C.D. / Office Visit / Sep 30, 2020
"Dear Dr. Dickson, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the amazing results with my new smile. I came to you at the suggestion of one of your happy patients, also a work associate of mine. I had been given a recommended plan and quote from another dentist and wanted to get a second opinion. I remember the other plan was a little less expensive and would have provided quicker results. But I also remember you advised me that the results of the other plan could put me in a dental chair regularly for major procedures for the rest of my life. As soon as I walked into your office, I felt comfortable. The care and attention of your staff is exemplary. You put together an entire team of an orthodontist and gum surgeon to combine with your dental expertise. At one time, there was even discussion I may need a jaw surgeon to perform major surgery. Thankfully, in the end the jaw surgery was not necessary. You were able to accomplish the results with only minor gum surgery. The process took a couple of years, but I am thrilled with the results. Being in sales, I find that one of my greatest assets is my smile. My smile has given me greater confidence and helped me build success in my career. I am often complimented on my wonderful smile. My boyfriend says it’s his favorite thing to see in the whole world! You and your team have literally changed my life. Thank you!"- M.B. / Office Visit / Sep 30, 2020
"I have been seeing Dr. Dickson for about 18 months now, after a 10-year leave of absence from visiting ANY dentist. My story and recommendation is long because the backstory is so important to why I recommend Dr. Dickson. To say I was frightened of the “horrendous dental chair” is an understatement. When I was 6 months old, I had scarlet fever and chicken pox at the same time. The treatment for these caused my enamel not to develop; that strong substance that protects your pearly whites, I have none. Dental work began for me as soon as my permanent teeth started coming in. My first cavity was drilled at the age of 5, with little to no numbing. From there, about 20 years in and out of the dentist chairs, every 6 months some new tooth to drill or root canal to be had. I have had veneers two prior times and my last root canal was about 10 years ago. After that, I just quit going. My memories are vivid: pain, discomfort, embarrassment, frustration … I then met Dr. Dickson through mutual friends. After talking with his wife first, she assured me I could do this and Dr. Dickson and his team would help me. First and foremost, his entire staff is AMAZING. They were patient with me as I, full of fear, walked in the office for the first time. The sound of any drills really brings me to my edge, so Lin, ever so quickly, pulled me from the waiting room and hollered to the staff, “Let’s get her comfortable, NOW!” I was sedated for my first cleaning and assessment of what was sure to be a huge project. When I went back for my consult, they made sure to take me quickly to where I couldn’t hear work being done, and Lin and I went over the whole plan. From there, Dr. Dickson restored my teeth in three sessions, all under sedation. He checked on me the evening after each session. The restoration has been life-changing. I have no discomfort, my teeth look natural, I smile fully and get so many compliments. I can really see it in photos!!! More importantly, together, we have pretty much conquered my fear. I have successfully followed up with two more cleanings on schedule, with NO cavities, and have graduated to not needing sedation for cleanings. Suzie is my hygienist and she quickly gets me in my chair and the nitrous started to ease my anxiety, and she lovingly calls it my “cocktail hour.” She always checks with me throughout the cleaning to see where my anxiety level is at. She and Dr. Dickson are kind as we talk through what I need to work on to keep my teeth healthy and beautiful. I have never felt negative about myself or reprimanded walking out of that office, which was so common with dentists before. I walked out on Wednesday after my cleaning and shed some tears. Battling my poor teeth health for so many years, Dr. Dickson and his colleagues have truly helped me make a transition that I never could have done on my own! Thanks Dr. D and staff!"- R.C. / Office Visit / Sep 30, 2020
