When you have lost a tooth or even several teeth, we have treatment options to fill the gaps and preserve your jaw. With dental implants, we can provide options that look and function like your natural teeth. At our Southlake, TX, dental office, our team is ready to take on your tooth loss with our dental implants, helping you enjoy renewed function and beauty in your smile.

Don’t Ignore the Gaps in Your Smile

Losing our teeth can be embarrassing, and leave behind gaps that make us feel self-conscious. But along with the changes to our smile’s beauty. Tooth loss also impacts health and function. As teeth drift, the resulting misalignment could be linked to tooth decay and gum disease. The strain on your jaw joints from the gaps in your smile could mean TMJ disorder and even bruxism (teeth grinding). As the body stops the flow of calcium and phosphorus to the jaw portions without tooth roots, this causes a breakdown linked to an aged appearance and further tooth loss. Even minor tooth loss is cause for concern, so please reach out to our team right away.

Placing Dental Implants

Dental implants don’t need crowns, clasps, or suction to stay in place. Instead, small screw-like posts made from titanium are inserted into the jaw surgically. These posts will be biocompatible and bond with the jaw, offering root structure that can support new teeth and also prevents the further collapse of your jawbone structure. As a result, your new teeth can last for decades, as opposed to the five years that dentures last. Our team will guide them into place with advanced technology. When the placement area heals, we will connect abutments to the posts that extend above the gum line. Now, you’re ready for the restoration.

Restoring Your New Teeth

For an individual dental implant, we will attach a custom crown to the abutment, so you have a custom portion of structure that looks natural and blends with your smile. If you have more advanced cases of tooth loss, then our team could use several implant posts to support a new bridge or even a full set of fixed dentures. If you have one or more missing teeth, even if years have elapsed since they were lost, please contact our team to undergo an examination and talk about your tooth replacement options. With implant dentistry, we can help you smile with confidence in 2024!
