When you have a missing tooth—or multiple teeth—one of the best things you can do for your smile is replace them. With that being said, if you’re going to invest in dental work from your Carrolton dentist, you should try to replace your teeth with the longest-lasting, natural looking (and feeling) tooth replacement there is: dental implants. Let’s explore how On Point dentistry can help you with dental implants and why they’re worth your time and money.
Dental Implants Are just As Great As Natural Teeth!
When you’re considering getting a dental implant or multiple, you’re truly making the best decision for your health and aesthetics. Dental implants are a permanent solution to the many issues that tooth loss pose. This tooth replacement option is made of small titanium posts or screws that are surgically inserted into the gums and allowed to fuse with the jawbone.
An implant replaces both the tooth root and crown, which is an essential component of a fully functioning, healthy smile. Implants help stabilize your smile and jawbone, while serving as anchors for permanent restorations like crowns, bridges and dentures.
The Process of Getting a Dental Implant
After your consultation, patients need to undergo the actual placement of their implants. In most cases, our team will be able to handle this procedure right here in-office for maximum comfort and convenience. Since implants essentially start with small titanium posts that are placed directly into your gum tissue, you should be prepared to undergo oral surgery.
You can be confident about this portion of the dental implant process because our dental experts can perform even this step under our one roof! During the placement stage, one or more metal implant posts will be placed in your jaw during a special surgical procedure. This procedure will be completed in our very own Carrollton practice rather than being referred out of our own practice.
Afterwards, a period of healing time will be required for the implants to create a strong bond with your natural tissue with a process known as osseointegration. Finally, you’ll return after your healing period to have your tooth replacement attached.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants in Carrollton are designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth so you smile in confidence. They’re also worth the time and money in these ways:
- Dental implants preserve natural tooth tissue by avoiding the need to cut down neighboring teeth for conventional bridgework.
- Dental implants will preserve bone and significantly reduce deterioration that results in an unhealthy jawbone.
- Dental implants have been shown to reduce the need for subsequent restorative dentistry for neighboring teeth.
- Implants last for a much longer than conventional restorations on teeth.
- Implants can help you chew your food better and speak more clearly.
- Dental implants will improve your facial appearance, reduce wrinkles, and restore the health of your jawbone.
