How dental implants from your dentist in Spring, TX can save your smile
Living with an incomplete smile due to lost teeth can be frustrating and embarrassing. You may be afraid to smile, and you may have trouble eating. The good news is you can restore your smile with tooth replacement that is the closest alternative to natural teeth available today. It’s time to learn how to complete your smile with dental implants! Dr. Maisa M. Idriss at The Smile Designer in Spring, TX wants to share the facts about revolutionary dental implants and how they can save your smile.
So, let’s start with why you should choose dental implants instead of partials, dentures, or bridgework. Dental implants offer benefits which can’t be matched by other tooth replacement methods. Dental implants are:
- Natural-looking, because they are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth, unlike dental appliances and bridgework
- Stable, because they are locked in place by bone; they won’t move around like dental appliances can
- Healthy, because you can brush and floss your implants just like natural teeth, unlike dental appliances
- Permanent, because you never take them out, unlike dental appliances
Now that you know why you should choose dental implants, let’s discuss HOW dental implants are placed. First, the titanium dental implant screw is placed in your jaw during a simple in-office procedure. Because of the unique characteristics of titanium, bone will grow around the implant, embedding it in place. After the area has healed, Dr. Idriss will cap the dental implant screw with a dazzling dental implant crown. You now have a new tooth to complete your smile!
Before you think about replacing teeth with an unnatural-looking dental bridge, or a less-than-perfect partial or denture, think about dental implants. Thanks to dental implants, you can enjoy a highly successful method of tooth replacement that boasts a success rate of over 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
