We’ve looked at dental bridges and removable dentures in recent blogs. For more a stable, long-lasting, and lifelike tooth replacement option, we may suggest implant dentistry. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist looks the process of placing dental implants and restoring them to ensure a perfect replacement option.
The Implant Process
The key to their success and longevity is the fact that each dental implant post is inserted directly into the jawbone. There, they bond with the jawbone tissue since they’re made from titanium, a biocompatible material. We plan and guide the placement with advanced technology, as we want them to be able to support restorations and prosthetics, stimulate the growth of jawbone tissue, and ensure a balanced bite.
Restoring Your New Teeth
After we place the posts, we wait for osseointegration to take place, which bonds them with the jaw. We then move forward with addressing the visible portion of your smile. We attach an abutment to each one, and then connect a custom-made dental crown. Made to look natural and provide a durable chewing surface, the restoration ensures your smile looks great! We could also attach a bridge or a denture to multiple dental implants, offering a prosthetic that last much longer than traditional crown-supported or removable options. They also never slip when you eat or speak, and don’t need to be removed for cleaning or soaking!
Keeping Your Smile Whole
A dental implant or implant secured prosthetic has the potential to last for decades to come, possibly even a lifetime! But how do you ensure they last for many years to come, and continues to look bright and natural? We suggest cutting back on sugary foods and drinks, which feed harmful oral bacteria. You should also brush and floss to remove stray food particles and keep your smile safe from serious plaque buildup. With a checkup and cleaning visit, we will make sure your new teeth remain stable, and also remove all plaque and tartar with a cleaning. These actions protect your new teeth, and natural ones, from issues that could threaten them, such as gum disease. If you have any questions about the implant process, or about avoiding tooth loss, then contact our team today. We want to make sure you continue to enjoy a full and whole smile for years to come!
