Over the past decade, dental implants have rapidly become the favored option for tooth replacement across America, offering stability and a natural aesthetic appeal uncommon to traditional dental prosthetics. 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.
