Reasons for Implant Restorations
Implant restorations at Timeless Dental can resolve the following oral health concerns:
- A single missing tooth: If you have lost just one tooth, a single implant can replace the missing root, and a dental crown will serve as replacement tooth.
- Several lost teeth: Multiple posts can be inserted into the jawbone to stabilize more than one dental crown.
- Replace a mouthful of teeth: Implant restorations at Timeless Dental provide support for individual false teeth, fixed bridges or complete dentures. An entire mouth replacement can be performed with implant-supported crowns.
Advantages for Dental Implants
Unlike traditional dentures or removable bridges, dental implants provide a permanent tooth replacement solution. Besides restoring your natural-looking smile, implant restorations improve proper mouth function. In addition, dental implants can help you chew and speak properly and avoid a sunken face with premature wrinkles. Tooth implants in The Woodlands stimulate bone growth. This is crucial for Timeless Dental patients with tooth loss, as missing teeth eventually lead to jaw deterioration.
Implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. The dental prosthetic fills the space once occupied by the missing root. Implants are anchored to the bone and serve as the foundation for a crown or a fixed bridge. The posts can also be used for implant-supported dentures.
Not everyone is a good candidate for dental implant services. For a successful procedure, the patient must have enough strong, healthy bone and be in good overall health. Strict oral hygiene habits are required in all cases. Please contact our office to meet with dentist to discuss whether implants would be right for you!
