Don’t let tooth loss ruin your appearance. Dental implants could be the solution.

Here in Sugar Land, TX, our dentists understand just how frustrating and upsetting it can be to lose a tooth. While losing a tooth was all fun and games as a child, as an adult, this can be rather embarrassing. After all, you thought your teeth would last forever. We offer an amazing way to replace your missing teeth for the long run so you can have your smile back.

What is the purpose of a dental implant?

No other tooth replacement works in the same way as a dental implant. This metal restoration is designed to sit within the jawbone to function like real tooth roots. When a natural tooth falls out or needs to be extracted, the tooth roots are also removed.

The roots are important because they keep the jawbone strong and healthy. When tooth roots are gone, the jawbone begins to deteriorate. To prevent further bone loss, our Sugar Land, TX, restorative dentists will place the implant into the jawbone where, over time, they will fuse together permanently. Implants can then be used to support a dental crown or even multiple artificial teeth (e.g. dentures).

Why choose dental implants?

If you are a healthy individual who is looking to replace one or more missing teeth and you want a restoration that will not only function similarly to natural teeth but will also last a long time, then you’ve come to the right place. Only dental implants can offer these benefits, and more!

Along with preserving the jawbone, the implant also helps maintain your natural facial structure while preventing teeth from shifting into those open gaps in your smile. Implants also fully restore chewing and speaking so you can start enjoying your favorite foods again.

When you get a dental implant you can trust that this restoration will look and feel just like a real tooth. Being able to smile again without feeling ashamed of your appearance is probably one of the most amazing and invaluable benefits of choosing dental implants.
