Missing teeth have a negative impact on your smile and your oral health, but traditional dentures or bridges can come loose.
Fortunately, dental implants replace tooth roots and fuse with the jawbone to provide secure, long-lasting support to dental restorations.
At Fuqua Advanced Dental in Southlake, TX, our prosthodontist is an expert in implant dentistry. Why are implants such a great choice?
What Are Dental Implants?
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Longevity and Durability
When patients take care of their teeth and follow the recommendations of their dentist, dental implants have the potential to last for 40 years or longer. While the restoration attached to the implant may eventually require replacement, the implant itself can withstand normal wear and tear for a lifetime.
Natural Appearance and Use
When high-quality restorations, like the ones produced at our state-of-the-art, in-house dental lab, are attached to dental implants, they can perfectly replicate the appearance of natural teeth. Additionally, patients with dental implants are able to chew and speak without worrying about dentures coming loose.
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone can begin to atrophy at the location of the missing tooth roots. This leads to a variety of dental problems, including misalignment of the teeth, greater likelihood of infection, and an aged, sunken appearance. Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants provide stimulation to the jawbone to keep it strong and healthy.
