Let’s Talk About Implant Dentistry

When you lose one tooth, or several, then we may suggest placing a dental implant, or several. Not only will they look natural, but they offer a greater level of stability than bridges or removable dentures. In today’s blog, your Garland, TX, dentist talks about implant dentistry, from the benefits to the placement process.

The Factors Behind Tooth Loss

Why do we lose our natural teeth? The cause could be linked to untreated tooth decay or a dental infection or abscess, as well as a serious injury. The most common cause is untreated gum disease, which reaches an advanced stage that severs the tissues connecting your teeth and gums. Without treatment, your gaps could cause misalignment, and also lead to an increased risk of TMJ disorder or bruxism (teeth grinding). Missing teeth complicate how we eat and speak too, and could impact our quality of life as they often cause embarrassment in social situations. Don’t let tooth loss harm your health and social life, talk to our team about a solution.

The Implant Difference

Unlike bridges and dentures, these don’t rely on suction, adhesives, crowns, or clasps to stay in place. They’re not removable and don’t need to be taken out for cleaning or soaking either. Instead, we insert a biocompatible titanium post into the jawbone. The post then bonds with the bone tissue like a natural root. This stimulates the growth of jawbone tissue to prevent the breakdown of mass and density in the jawbone, and also prevent issues like misalignment. You enjoy a complete and full smile, one that could last for decades to come or possibly even a lifetime.

Your New Smile

What about the parts of the smile people see? For an individual dental implant, we could attach a custom-made crown, one that is designed to absorb daily bite forces and also blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. If you have multiple lost teeth, then we could use several posts to secure a bridge or even a full set of dentures. Your prosthetic will never slip when you eat or speak, and you will care for them as you would natural teeth. Brushing, flossing, and a healthy diet will help preserve your smile. You can also help by attending checkup and cleaning visits every six months too, so we monitor your smile and also remove harmful buildup that could lead to periodontal troubles. If you have any questions about how we replace missing teeth with implants, then contact our team today.
