Dental Implants: Welcome the New Year with a New Smile!

December 23, 2014

151545340According to the American College of Prosthodontists, approximately 178 million men and women in the United States are missing at least one of their natural teeth. Of these, an estimated 37 million are completely edentulous (missing all of their teeth). If you are missing one or more teeth, the team at Highland Village Family Dentistry invites you to make a unique type of resolution this New Year’s Eve. As 2015 begins, why not take this opportunity to begin a new chapter in your life with a completely revitalized smile? With dental implants, Dr. Ryan Thomas and his team can make repairing your smile easier than you may expect.

Dental Implants for a Gorgeous Smile in 2015

If you are missing even a single tooth, you understand what an impact this common oral health issue can have on your daily life. If the missing tooth shows when you smile or speak, you may feel less inclined to share your true self and personality with those who matter most. Even if you are missing a molar near the back of your mouth, it may prove exceedingly difficult to chew the foods you need to enjoy a healthy and happy life. If not replaced in a timely manner, a missing tooth can lead to the deterioration of jaw bone tissue. This may subsequently result in the loss of additional teeth.

Fortunately, it is possible to halt the loss of bone tissue with a restorative dentistry option that mimics the function of your natural teeth: dental implants. With a tiny titanium post, Dr. Thomas and his trusted team of implant specialists can effectively replace one or more missing teeth in a way that looks and feels completely natural. A custom crown, bridge, or denture is then attached to the biocompatible dental implant, thereby completing the process of total tooth replacement. You’ll love your new smile, an invaluable asset you’ll enjoy not only throughout 2015 but for years and years to come.

At Highland Village Family Dentistry in Highland Village, TX, Dr. Ryan Thomas and his skilled, compassionate staff offer patients with missing teeth a new lease on life with dental implant restorations. We can’t wait to show you how our restorative dentistry procedures can change your smile and your life!

Dental Implant Restorations: Combining Form and Function

When you are missing a tooth, the bone in the jaw that once supported the tooth begins to deteriorate. This can lead to a number of complications, including an increased risk of periodontal disease and additional tooth loss. In order to stimulate this living bone tissue and keep your jaw healthy, an oral surgeon can replace your tooth’s lost root with a biocompatible dental implant. Over time, the titanium post fuses with the bone via a process called osseointegration.

When this brief period of healing has been completed, Dr. Thomas will attach a dental prosthetic to the implant. This may be a single crown to replace one missing tooth, or a full arch of dentures to replace all of the teeth in the jaw. Partials can also be anchored to dental implants, providing structural stability and beauty.

With dental implant restorations, you can feel free to eat your favorite foods, speak comfortably, and smile with complete confidence. A consultation will determine your candidacy for dental implants as well as any of our other restorative dentistry procedures.
