Are Dental Implants Right For You?

Dental Implants in Pflugerville

Not only can a missing tooth cause problems with the function of your teeth and your oral health, it can also be a major source of embarrassment. There are several procedures that can be conducted to replace a missing tooth, but one of the most beneficial are dental implants. At our Marble Falls, TX office, we can provide in-office dental implant procedures in order to replace your missing tooth to give you your oral health and smile back.

Dental Implants

The dental implant procedure is often split into two steps: putting in the implant and attaching the crown. During the first step, your dentist will place a titanium rod directly into the bone where the root of your missing tooth used to be. This will add stability to the implant without the help of surrounding teeth. After the implant has fully healed, a customized crown will be attached to the implant to fill in the space of the missing tooth. The crown will be fully functional as well as natural-looking and cohesive with the rest of your teeth so you won’t be able to tell the difference.

Benefits of Dental Implants

They don’t damage other teeth – Other procedures used to replace missing teeth can require surrounding, healthy teeth to be filed down in order to provide stability to the replacement crown. Implants have stability from the bone and wont damage the teeth around it.

They keep the bone healthy – Once a tooth has been lost, the bone will start to degenerate as the body finds other places to use the calcium. The implant will trick the bone into thinking there is still a tooth there so you won’t experience bone loss.

They are made to last – Because the implant uses a single crown, they are easier to clean and take care of. With good oral hygiene, implants can last more than fifteen years before they need to be repaired or replaced.

Is a Dental Implant Right for You?

Though most people with missing teeth can be candidates for a dental implant procedure, it is important to contact your dentist for an evaluation. In some cases, there may not be enough bone to provide stability to the implant and a graft may be necessary. If you have missing teeth and would like more information about implants, please do not hesitate to contact our team at Bright Smiles Family Dentistry today!
