DENTAL IMPLANTS IN GRAPEVINE TEXAS
Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular method for replacing missing teeth. In this procedure, titanium supports are surgically fused with your jawbone, and act as an anchor for naturally looking false teeth. Dental implants are not only used for individual tooth replacement but can also be used when replacing multiple teeth as an alternative to dentures.
If you have missing teeth, it is crucial to replace them. Without all your teeth, chewing and eating can destabilize your bite, weaken your other teeth, and cause you discomfort. When teeth are missing, your mouth can shift and even cause your face to look older. Dental implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth.
A tooth implant is a new tooth made of steel and porcelain that looks just like your natural tooth or better! Your tooth implant is composed of two parts that mimic a tooth’s root and crown. The implant’s “root” is a titanium steel rod placed into the jaw bone to act as a root. Once the rod is in place, a porcelain crown is attached to replace the top part of your tooth.
Dental implants may also be used to anchor dentures, especially lower dentures that tend to shift when you talk or chew. Plus, for patients with removable partial dentures, dental implants can replace missing teeth so that you have a more natural-looking smile.
