A missing tooth may not seem like a big deal, especially if it’s one of the back teeth that anyone hardly sees. However, the importance of your smile being whole goes far beyond aesthetics. When there’s a gap in your smile, food particles and other debris can get trapped there, causing infections and possible tooth decay in your remaining teeth.
You should always get a restoration to prevent a domino effect of lost teeth. In the past, such restorations included dentures or dental bridges. However, thanks to new technology, there is now a better option. At Frisco Elm Dental, Dr. Vidya Suri offers full-mouth teeth implants for patients needing services such as tooth replacement and more.
Dental implants are a revolutionary solution for replacing missing teeth. Unlike conventional tooth replacement options, implants don’t just replace the visible part of the tooth. Instead, they replace the entire tooth right down to the root. Dr. Suri, a dental professional with years of experience with implants, performs a simple procedure where tiny titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth.
Over time, the bone grows around the post, creating a solid, natural-looking foundation that mimics natural teeth. Once the implant is fully integrated, an abutment and restoration can be attached, and your smile will be fully restored. With dental implants, you can reclaim your confidence and enjoy a natural-looking smile that lasts a lifetime.
Choosing dental implants over traditional restorations offers several advantages:
