WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants are a permanent solution for patients seeking that perfect white smile. Implants are a great choice for patients that have broken, damaged, or missing teeth. Implants act similar to an artificial tooth that is placed in the jawbone. They are extremely durable, and are built to last upwards of 25 years.
Dental implants function like our natural teeth, and allow patients to speak and eat normally. They are comfortable in the mouth, and do not cause gum or mouth irritation like with other restorative solutions. Implants provide long lasting results, and if cared for properly they can last a lifetime.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS?
- Preserve the natural bone in the mouth, and help to stimulate new bone growth.
- Implants are durable, and provide long term value financially compared to other restorative solutions.
- Dental implants are permanent, and do not slip or click like other solutions.
- Implants are comfortable, and look and feel natural in the mouth.
- Implants can last upwards of 25 years, or a lifetime if they are cared for properly.
- Dental Implants restore full chewing power, and are as strong as natural teeth.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE DENTAL IMPLANT PROCESS?
The dental implants process requires multiple appointments in our office. We require a consultation with each patient to discuss any goals, and to determine the best treatment plan. Once we are ready to begin the implant process, the first step involves placing the implant into the jawbone. After this step is complete there is a healing process that must occur.
The healing period allows the implant time to fuse to the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This allows the implant to function like a natural tooth root in the mouth. In order for the implant to remain sturdy, and provide the required support, the patient must have enough bone present in the jaw. If necessary, bone grafts can be done to provide the additional support that is needed.
Once the healing process is complete, the patient returns to our office to complete the implant process. An abutment or connector is placed on top of the implant, and this holds the crown securely in place. Custom crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth. Temporary crowns may be necessary until patients return to have the permanent crown installed.

Meet the Doctors
Dr. Travis Campbell
I was born a Texan and love it! I decided to become a dentist at the age of 3, always my goal, and still my passion.
I graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry here in the Dallas area. Before graduating, I built a vision and business plan for 380 Family Dentistry.
Prosper was still early in its growth phase, and at the time there were cows living across highway 380 from our first office! As Prosper has flourished, grown and gained a great reputation, so have we. At 380 Family Dentistry, we have patients referred not only from Frisco and McKinney, but from surrounding cities all over Collin County!

Hi, I’m Dr. Maryam Fazal, and I’m excited to be part of the 380 Family Dentistry Team!
I’m definitely a Texan, raised for the most part in the Dallas area. I earned my DDS degree from the University of Pittsburg, then returned to Texas to complete a hospital-based residency at UT Health Science Center in Houston and begin practicing dentistry back in my hometown! I’ve worked at several dental practices in the greater Dallas area over the past 5 years, providing me the opportunity to treat all age groups and types of dental situations. I’m happy to be near family and enjoying life with my husband and new baby daughter, Zara.
Above all, I’ve learned that what’s most important to me is to make you, the patient, feel welcome and not afraid of being in the dental chair. Coming to a dental office can be daunting for some, and I’m proud of anyone who can overcome their fear and take the positive steps to receive oral care. I promise that I will be here to guide you through every step of the process, answering all questions you may have along the way.
I am proud to be part of a family-oriented practice like 380 Family Dentistry and I can’t wait to get to know you!
