Patients are missing teeth. Probably the most obvious thing we can do is replace their tooth. Single teeth are frequently the easiest, but can be difficult depending on the esthetic needs of the area. Sometimes it’s complicated if there is not enough bone left to place it, but that can also be corrected ahead of time often with some minor bone grafting.
It’s becoming more and more popular as people see other people getting it done, and they aren’t having any problems. The success rate is very high.
Other than waiting for the bone to grow in to make the implant solid, it’s one of the quickest ways to aesthetically change someone’s smile.
Carrollton Dental Implants
Don’t let missing teeth ruin your diet and your self-esteem. Now, you can restore your full chewing ability, smile with confidence, and eat whatever you want with dental implants from Carrollton dentist Dr. Proctor.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small posts or rods made of titanium or other material that is compatible with the body. The doctor makes an opening in your jaw bone and embeds the post in the hole. Once the area heals completely and the titanium post fuses with bone, the dental crown, bridge or denture is attached on top of the implant.
One implant can be used to restore a single lost tooth, but several implants (a minimum of four) are often used to support bridges or dentures. Some types of implants are thinner and smaller than conventional implants, allowing them to be placed at the same time as the restorations.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Well-designed dentures and bridges are effective and affordable teeth replacement solutions. However, they are not ideal for everyone or for all situations. If you want a teeth replacement system that is permanent, durable, low-maintenance, and secure, dental implants are recommended. Dental implants:
Restore almost 100% of your chewing ability
Prevent jaw bone deterioration
Look and function just like real teeth
Require no denture adhesives or attachments
Last for decades
Can make you look more youthful
Are Dental Implants Right for You?
Dental implants are superior restorations, but they require careful planning and patient selection to be successful. In general, anyone who can undergo a routine tooth extraction is a candidate for implant placement. However, the bone at the implant site must also be thick and tall enough to support the implant, and you must have no conditions that interfere with proper wound healing.
