Experienced Dental Implant Planning and Surgery in Pleasanton, New Braunfels, and San Antonio, TX
Dental implant surgery offers a reliable, modern solution for tooth replacement. Whether you’re dealing with a single decayed tooth that needs to be extracted or looking to secure a set of wobbly dentures, a dental implant is the perfect permanent replacement. They consist of a strong, biocompatible “root” that is inserted into the jawbone and integrates with the surrounding bone. An “abutment” is then attached to the root, and the restoration (the crown) is placed on top of it.
A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone and is used to hold a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or denture in place. It is the most secure and long-lasting replacement teeth option.
Benefits of Dental Implants
DENTAL IMPLANTS ACT JUST LIKE NATURAL TEETH
A dental implant is so realistic that most people can’t even tell the difference between them and their own teeth. Thanks to this, you can eat and chew just like you normally would. Plus, they look much more natural than dentures. In all, a dental implant is a great way to restore your smile.
DENTAL IMPLANTS ARE A PERMANENT SOLUTION
Elite Dental’s dental implants are made from titanium, a material that is long-lasting, biocompatible, and medically certified. Despite being artificial, these implants are prone to the same dental issues as natural teeth, making it essential for patients to observe proper oral hygiene and to go for regular check-ups at the dentist.
DENTAL IMPLANTS MAKE ADJACENT TEETH MORE STABLE
When a tooth is missing, the ones adjacent to it can become loose and drift toward the gap. This can have a serious impact on the way you chew and bite. Furthermore, it might cause jaw and muscle issues such as TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction. Additionally, it can lead to muscular and jaw issues like TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction. Dental Implant surgery helps alleviate this.
DENTAL IMPLANTS PREVENT BONE LOSS
When a tooth is missing, the jawbone begins to deteriorate. This is because the tooth’s root structure helps to strengthen the jawbone, while the pressure of chewing keeps the density of the bone intact. Implants act as a substitute for natural teeth, and they provide the stimulation needed to preserve the jawbone and prevent it from deteriorating.
DENTAL IMPLANTS CAN KEEP FACIAL STRUCTURE FROM COLLAPSING
Bone loss, or resorption, creates open spaces in teeth, which can eventually lead to a decrease in the height between the base of the nose and the chin. This, in turn, causes wrinkles to form around the mouth, thinning of the lips, and sagging skin, all of which can make a person appear much older than they actually are. Fortunately, a dental implant can help to preserve bone levels, thereby avoiding this collapse and its associated side effects.
DENTAL IMPLANTS CAN HELP PREVENT GUM DISEASE FROM DEVELOPING
Gaps between teeth can create cozy habitats for food particles and bacteria, which can contribute to gum disease. An effective way to combat this problem is by replacing the missing tooth with a dental implant, preserving your oral health in the process.
DENTAL IMPLANT PLACEMENT CAN STABILIZE YOUR DENTURES
If you wear dentures, a dental implant gives a much-needed boost of chewing power and stability. No more gluey messes or aching discomfort from the dentures shifting and rubbing against the gums. With a dental implant, denture wearers can enjoy a comfortable and secure fit!
