When you better understand dental issues like tooth loss, our experts at Dental Renaissance is able to address such conditions early on, often preventing them from developing at all. Unfortunately, tooth loss still happens even with our best efforts. It could be from uncontrollable dental disease or accidental trauma. Either way, it remains a problem for a significant number of patients.
Luckily, innovation in the dental society have also provided a variety of options for effectively replacing lost teeth. If you’ve lost one or more teeth, then speak with your dentist to find out if dental implants in Plano can help you restore your smile by replacing them.
Dental Implants Are the Next Best Thing to Natural Teeth
When you’re considering getting a dental implant or multiple, you’re truly evaluating what’s best for you and your smile. Dental implants are a permanent solution to the temporary problems 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.
Getting Your 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! This first step will create a brand-new root for the lost tooth, which stimulates the jawbone and keeps it full and healthy for years to come.
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, patients will return to visit your Plano dentist so we can design and place your custom restoration to the implants, filling the gaps in your smile.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth so you can be confident in your smile. Besides those aspects, you can benefit from dental implants in these ways:
- Dental implants preserve natural tooth tissue by avoiding the need to cut down neighboring teeth for conventional bridgework.
