What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a type of restoration used to replace missing or severely compromised teeth. While gaps left by missing teeth are often thought of as a cosmetic concern, they can actually affect the overall health and structure of the jaw by creating space for the remaining teeth to shift out of their proper alignment. To help our patients in Cedar Hill, TX move past lost teeth, Fresh Dentistry is pleased to offer high-quality dental implant restorations. Fixed dental implant treatments involve surgically installing a post in the jaw where the missing tooth was located. Once the post has fused with the jawbone, a custom crown, bridge, or denture is installed to replace the lost tooth. If you are suffering from tooth loss or require a tooth extraction, schedule a visit with Dr. Candace Brown at Fresh Dentistry and find out about your oral implant options.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Implant-supported restorations are commonly favored due to the substantial range of benefits they supply. As efficient substitutes, dental implants offer advantages such as:
- Can enhance your confidence while talking and when your teeth show
- Act as a long-term solution
- Merge with the bone tissues to help retain jawbone health and structure
- Replicate normal teeth in ability and visual appeal
- Offer better biting force and stability of replacement teeth
- Doesn't rely on adjacent teeth to stay in position
- Encourage the intake of a varied diet
What Can I Expect During My Dental Implant Treatment?
Dental implants are placed in two steps. In the first step, you will undergo dental surgery to have the titanium post installed in your jaw. It will take some time (usually at least six months) for the surgery site to heal and the implant to integrate with the jawbone. Once your jaw is ready, you will return to Fresh Dentistry for the second step of your treatment. During this visit, Dr. Brown will install your custom-made crown, denture, or bridge into the post. She will then check the fit and alignment to ensure full function and comfort.
