Deer Park Texas Dental Implants:
Before development of dental implants, bridges and dentures were the only alternate to replacing a missing tooth or teeth.
Implants are man-made tooth root substitutes. They are titanium cylinders that are inserted into the jawbone. There the bone grows around and fuses to the titanium locking the implant into the jawbone. The new established dental implant tooth root will serve as the foundation for a cosmetic crown or or bridge. Furthermore, dental implants can be used to secure dentures.
Dental Implants are designed to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Fully restored dental implants are made of titanium and porcelain ceramic. Thus, dental implants can never get decay and will never need a root canal. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement options that stimulate and preserve the surrounding bone.
Dental Implant Anatomy:
Another great advantage of dental implants is that they prevent teeth from shifting and collapsing into an empty tooth space.
Patients love getting permanent, non-removable dental implant solutions to their missing teeth.
What exactly are dental implants?
Implants serve as the foundation for the most secure tooth replacement available today. They are titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone to replace natural roots. The jawbone will fuse to the implant to create a stable platform to attach a dental crown.
We work with a variety of implant types and scenarios. A single implant can be used to replace one or two teeth, or multiple implants might be used to support a bridge or denture. The beauty of implants is that they are customized to each individual’s needs. Using cutting-edge technology, our planning method is highly accurate, simplifying the surgical procedure while improving results.
People are living longer lives than ever before, and while proper brushing, flossing, and checkups allow many of us to keep our natural grins for a lifetime, our teeth can’t always keep up. Dental implants can restore both your smile and your oral health if you’ve lost a tooth (or several teeth) due to injury or disease.
An implant is a post-shaped synthetic tooth root that is surgically placed into the jawbone. The “root” is constructed of titanium, which is also used in many replacement hips and knees and is a metal that pairs well with human bone. The post is then fitted with a replacement tooth. The tooth might be permanently or temporarily attached. Permanent teeth are more stable and have a more natural feel to them.
A nonsmoker with good dental health, including enough bone in the jaw and healthy gums with no signs of gum disease, is a perfect candidate for implants.
IMPLANTS, SINGLE OR MULTIPLE
Implants are extremely adaptable. If you only have one missing tooth, one implant + one replacement tooth will suffice. When numerous teeth are missing in a row, a few properly placed implants can support a permanent bridge (a set of replacement teeth). Similarly, if you have lost all of your teeth, a full bridge or full denture can be securely attached in your mouth with a strategically placed number of implants.
PERKS OVER DENTURES OR BRIDGES
Traditional bridges and dentures are not attached to the bone and might thus be unstable. This makes it difficult to eat or smile confidently. Implants not only seem more natural, but they also feel and function more like real teeth, with a greater biting force. Implants do not jeopardize the health of your natural teeth because they do not rely on nearby teeth for support. In fact, bridges are only projected to last seven to ten years, and root canals even less, whereas implants are expected to last a lifetime.
Assume that your replacement teeth are the same as natural teeth. They both require daily brushing and flossing, as well as the same number of regular visits. The same as with natural teeth, the better you care for your replacements, the longer they will survive.
