If you seek some of the best dental restorations available, then ask our dentist at Patient-First Dental Care about dental implants. These restorations replace both the tooth root and crown, creating a stronger bite and a healthier you. Contact Dr. Gayle Fletcher today to see if you can receive dental implants in Conroe, Texas.
Dental implants are one of the most modern tooth-replacement services available. The procedure includes the following steps:
Step No. 1: A titanium screw is surgically placed in the jawbone. This screw replaces the missing tooth’s root and will fuse to the jaw after several months through a process called osseointegration.
Step No. 2: The screw is then exposed so an abutment post can be attached to it above the gumline.
Step No. 3: We will create a dental restoration, which is oftentimes a dental crown, to cover this post and renew the structure, function, and appearance of the missing tooth.
There are many benefits to receiving dental implants. Unlike other restoration options, they replace the entire structure of a missing tooth. By having an artificial root, implants also support jawbone health and prevent it from shrinking. Additionally, having a root fused to the jaw provides more stability to the implant as you chew food. Implants also don’t require the neighboring teeth to be filed down as is the case with bridges, which means that your mouth will be healthier as a whole.
