Replace A Missing Tooth With A Durable Dental Implant
Pasadena Texas Dentist:
Implants? Crowns? Veneers? Invisible braces? As dental technology and procedures have advanced, so has our Pasadena Dental Office. Dentistry has grown to provide many novel solutions that address almost every possible dental problem.
In the past, if a patient in Pasadena had a missing tooth or a severely damaged tooth, dentists regularly suggested dental bridges or dentures, because they were the best options at the time. However, now advanced dental implants have proven to be superior to dental bridges for most Pasadena patients. Plus, dental implants can also replace dentures or anchor dentures for some patients.
A dental implant provides many important advantages over a dental bridge or dentures:
Longevity – Dental implants are the longest lasting tooth replacement option. They will never get decay and will never need a root canal.
Seamless – Fabricated to have the same shape, size and color of the original tooth, the implant will blend effortlessly with all the other teeth. If the original tooth had cosmetic issues, this can generally be repaired with the implant crown.
Function – A dental implant functions like a natural tooth allowing for normal eating and speaking. This is because the dental implant replaces the entire tooth.
Convenience – Unlike dentures, no adhesives, rinsing, or removal is necessary. Dental implants do not come out at night. They are permanent.
Independent – Like the missing tooth, the dental implant is treated individually. No damaging of adjacent teeth is required, as with dental bridges. This independence allows nearby teeth to remain intact. Cleaning is easier than with most dental bridges which can require the threading of floss under and around the artificial tooth.
