What kind of support can you really expect from a prosthetic tooth? If you are looking into having your full smile restored, you can be eager to find a way to make your smile look whole again while also improving your bite function. With the support of a dental implant, you can enjoy these benefits as well as more support for your neighboring teeth and jawbone! A dental implant is set directly into your jawbone, making it possible to set your restoration in place without affecting neighboring teeth. Its placement can help you smile with confidence, maintain a natural bite, and avoid problems with jawbone erosion that can occur after tooth loss. Our Dallas, TX dentist’s office is ready to give you back your complete smile by placing and restoring a dental implant!

A Dental Implant Offers Lasting Support For Your Restoration

A dental implant is put in place in order to hold a restoration. The roots of your teeth are embedded in your jawbone, which helps to keep them stable when they experience pressures from biting and chewing. You can count on your implant to provide this type of stability for you – when in place, the implant holds your restoration firmly enough to give you real support. Its presence also gives more support to your neighboring teeth, as its presence provides more stability and limits the potential for them to shift.

How Is A Dental Implant Secured?

While many practices have to send patients to another location for implant placement, our practice can bring you in to secure a post, or multiple posts. The implant is set directly in your jawbone, a process which does require oral surgery. To ensure that the procedure is successful, we use imaging technology to identify the exact place an implant should be set. After securing the implant, your jawbone will naturally fuse with it while you heal. After an appropriate healing period, you can receive your prosthetic, which can give you back a full and attractive smile.

Make Prosthetic Dental Work A Priority

When you ignore tooth loss, you can leave yourself vulnerable to bite troubles, and give your jawbone more time to lose mass. The loss of jawbone density happens because the bone relies on the roots of teeth for important stimulation. When that stimulation is present, it tells your body to deliver nutrients to your teeth and jaw. If it is not present, the bone’s health and size can be affected. Implants are able to mimic that stimulation, and help you preserve the bone!
