The Security of Dental Implants
- Posted on: Nov 10 2010
If you think your dentures are “good enough,” if you think you can “deal with” a missing or loose tooth, it’s time to learn about the security of dental implants.
Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace teeth, whether you’re missing one tooth or more. The final result looks natural and blends with the rest of your teeth. The implant itself is a small, titanium “root” that’s placed in the jawbone. Porcelain teeth are customized and attached to the implant so that they match your existing teeth and complement your overall appearance. At Houston’s Smile Texas, dental implants are done on a daily basis, no stitches or incisions required.
One of the greatest advantages of a dental implant is that, when it’s placed into your jawbone, it stimulates and preserves bone structure. This means your new teeth maintain their hold – unlike dentures which definitely don’t always instill confidence in the wearer.
Take a look at the Smile Makeovers that have been created at Smile Texas using dental implants. Or watch this dental implant video series to learn more about the procedure from our world-renowned implant dentist Dr. Rick Kline.
